Sweet Nostalgia

Do you ever hear something - or come across something accidentally - that brings you back to your childhood?  I had that moment today when, for no reason that I am aware of, Musicbox Dancer popped in my head.  Honestly, I have no idea why this song has sweet memories for me but it does.  Maybe I had a jewellery box that I don't remember and the ballerina twirled to this?  The thought of this song prompted me to remember a few other things and to go through pictures that are hidden in my computer.  I have so many wonderful memories, many of which were not captured on film.  Thankfully, they live strong in my mind and heart.

Life has been good.  Life has had many ups and many downs and even an almost rock bottom but it is good.  I am blessed with a loving family, a few great friends and a job I love.  It is because of these moments, and so many others, that my life is full ... almost. 

Thank you for taking this quick trip down memory lane with me.
