These Are The Memories

 Life is a continuous cycle. It spins and swirls like a merry-go-round. It blurs away, moments caught up in an endless spinning. It is so fast that it can be dizzying. You know how it is when you're on a merry-go-round. It picks up speed and everything else fades away into a blur and all you can focus on is hanging on tight so you don't fall off. The effects of this means that moments can be forgotten. Those precious, fleeting memories, moments become a dim blurry substance and you wonder if you will ever get them back.
 There is a way to keep these memories fresh and alive in your mind. Write them down. Frame them through your lens. Take the time to still the rush and blur of life. Put pen to paper, light to pixels and freeze the moment. It's the reason so many people have taken to blogging either as a lifestyle blogger, a food blogger, or a personal blogger. We want to hold time still, even for a moment. We want to stop the merry-go-round just for a bit to see the life that is surrounding us. We don't want to forget it.
 These are my memories, the moments I want to remember.

-Jaxon running along behind his papa trying to keep up with him as they work

-Taylor and Jaxon, each other's best friend and worst enemy

-Jaxon begging to have his shoes on so he can go outside and work with his papa

-Taylor's chattering that sounds so much like a real conversation

-When Jaxon tells me "Hi" repeatedly throughout the day

-The way Jaxon repeats "love you" (sounds more like "lah you")

-When Taylor tries to climb all over my lap

-Family nap times when there is barely room left for me on the bed

-The weight of my children in my arms and my heart that is filled to bursting

"Precious memories, how they linger, how they ever flood my soul"

 What memories do you have that you want to hang onto? Do you have a way of recording them to keep close?
