In the beginning, your mind is fresh and you readily remember where things are kept. Those special treasures, keepsakes that are organized. But, in time, they are tucked away, not out of disrespect, but just because that is how your life becomes…disorganized and tucked away.

We are in the midst of moving now. I have learned I had a penchant for tucking keepsakes into books, magazines, between things. I have found fun, meaningful treasures from my children. Long forgotten, but capable of transporting me back decades to simpler, gentler, innocent times.

Be careful where you store your treasures, your memories along the way. If you are not careful, you may lose them.
