Thoughts for a rainy day

I talked to a delightful lady this morning whose mother is 104 years old. Her parents took her on a trip around the world on the Cunard Line when she was a young woman in the early Twenties. Just imagine what pictures and stories this old lady must have stored in her head !

This led me to think about the kinds of pictures and stories we are storing in our heads every day. What will we be able to draw on when we are old ? Look closely at something today and really see and experience it and then put it away carefully so there will be a rich store to draw on some day.

This is a beautiful thought. There is always something to be happy about, even if it's just a memory.
