#JustAThought… Sweet Memories

How is it that beautiful memories can make you cry? Even though all the people involved are still with you. When I listened to the song I am sharing tomorrow, suddenly, I was taken back to our Christmas in Williamsville, Buffalo. A string of single moments appeared, and I felt the joy again of spending these days with our little daughter. Just the three of us. A time when new traditions were born.

Sometimes moments, that seem long forgotten, are popping up in your mind as if they belonged to a movie but not to your life. Moments that you may not have considered as special back then. Still, they suddenly fly at you effortlessly like mischievous, playful elves, and they catch your heart with both hands and kiss it. Our subconscious mind stores more than we can imagine. It absorbs everything around you like a sponge. Some bubbles are on the surface, and you giggle them away. Others need some deeper moisture until they find their way to the surface, and when they pop, you are even more touched because they catch you by surprise.

I pondered if I got moved that much because I valued that moment too little past then. But no, absolutely not. It is not sadness that comes up but rather a deeply felt gratitude. Just because that moment has meant so much, it is still there as colorful and alive. All the countless meaningful moments get stored inside of us. We cannot think of them all the time, so many may rest until something opens a little window to let them flutter around in your heart.

Memories that make you cry because they were so beautiful prove that you were there with all your heart… or so I think.

In Love and Light

The purpose of my blog is to inspire and shine a light on the beauty and power of the wonderful being inside your body. You came into this world to share what only you can give. Remember who you really are, conquer the world the way you always wanted to, and become the blessing to us all that you were meant to be.


Life, Love


All those delightful little atoms streaking around inside us. From the heart to our brains to…well…all over. I can feel the smell of a very remembered love, the well trod track of a loved forest path, the cooking of my mum when she did those delicious gramma (can’t remember the spelling of that 😂), and cream pies. So, so many…but never lost, just a bit more vague as time goes by. And I think that is only due to those incoming things that change us…so that what went before become changed too. Mmm, that is some storage bin…and not a computer in sight anywhere Erika 🤣 Great post dear lady, may your ‘bits and bytes’ be stored in your heart well 😀❤️🙏🏽


Oh, yes, the heart has memory cells too and they never forget anything. It only needs a little trigger and things that seemed to be forgotten are so clearly appearing in us as if they just happened. As you said, you can even smell and hear what once was. I love that and my gratitude for reliving these moments that I had is priceless.
