"And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them 3 and said, 'Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven."

Memories

Memories 

Memories of our childhood so precious now, but just everyday events as children. These are Locus shells they love cedar trees, as kids, we gathered them off the Big Cedar Tree. When I was a child up until I was around 14 my grandparents had this huge cedar tree out in their front yard. Funny growing up I didn't really give that tree much thought, it was just a staple of grandma and grandpa's house. It was where I spent most of my time growing up. Under the tree was all dirt since the ground was shaded and didn't get much sun. It was great for building roads in the dirt and running your toy cars down those roads. (Yes I am a girl and the biggest Tomboy ever) when I was a child. When you are a child you think things will always be the same, taking stuff for granted. 

When I was around 14, I was down there that summer with my cousin Melinda and there was this horrible storm, we were in my grandpa's shop and you couldn't even see out because of the rain, hail, and wind. After the storm broke, we went out and the first thing when we looked at the yard was this huge 100-year-old tree toppled over in the yard with the top part laying up against a front window. How it didn't break the window, I have no clue. What it did break was my heart. Honestly, it wasn't just my heart. It also broke the time-warp of my childhood. I was down there over and over again since that day but you know what? It seemed so different. That was a major change in my life and I didn't realize it then, but there would be many more. 

Know that there will always be changes some for the good and some for the worse, but what you need to remember is to take each day, one day at a time and immerse yourself in all the people and things that you love. There is no promise of tomorrow. See those people you love every chance you can, enjoy those people and things you love that you might take for granted. Then take all those memories you gather as you grow, and lock them away in your mind for nothing last forever. 

Bless you and all the lives you touch,
Susan
