Why Memories are so Important

Most of us can’t remember any of our growing years from birth to 6 years or more.

As a mother of 2 precious little ones, I cherish every moment from birth onwards. Our children are special gifts for us to treasure during their young lives. We watch them grow, walk, run, speak and witness every little antics they learn that carve their characters, to become the person they were born to be. They don’t remember any of this.

Jeremy my 6 year old son, loves to visit our neighbour and the elderly couple in their late 70s enjoys his company. They just play darts together, Jeremy hops into his boat and pretends to steer it while they watch him with amazement. 2 very different generations, sharing the same joy.

Jeremy is also very close to my mum and enjoys long conversations with her. These are golden moments, very precious because both are sharing and exchanging precious lessons.

I have recorded and remembered every single moment. These memories I keep not only to remind me of how lucky I am to have 2 wonderful little people, to brighten my life but to also pass onto my kids, to show them the joy they brought us. Nothing can say more to them, than to see their young lives with us in a video and photo slideshow.

It is so important to record their small achievements to show how special they are. It is also important to not only take photos of our kids but we need to be in the photos as well. Whether, we are fat or with no makeup on or just in everyday clothes. It shows the your love for them naturally.

There will come a time when our kids will become adults and get caught up in life. When they need to find their purpose, these memories will remind them about the simple life they had and see the joy in their eyes.

 I know because I have asked my mum many times, how I was as a kid and whether I was a happy kid or was I sad.

As we mature in age, these memories will show us the many happy moments in our life which have long been forgotten.

In the words of a special person whose parent was an advance Alzheimer’s patient,

“Just seeing the spark in his eyes when he started to remember certain parts of his life in a slideshow, made me feel so relieved to know that I haven’t totally lost him.”

Remember the impact of what a slideshow can do to re-create your precious memories, especially when photos and music are mixed together.
