Memory Box

I always love it when I am sitting around a table with my family and friends reminiscing about the past.  Most of the memories relate to some special event such as a wedding, party, school days or a special time that I shared with people I love.

Sometimes the stories differ depending on who is telling them and at times some of the details may not always be accurate, but that is the fun part of memory.  Even better is being able to get out photos, an old dress, maybe some old jewellery or a memento that can help with the memory and the story.  Maybe letters, old war medals or even an old teddy bear or doll from your parents or grandparents are able to bring back fond memories.

Keeping a memory box for your kids can be fun and you may include their first tooth, a lock of hair or even a picture they may have painted.  Keeping school reports may bring back memories of old friends during their growing years, maybe pictures they painted or even poems or stories that they wrote.  The memory box would then make a unique gift when they have graduated, got married or reached a milestone age.

A memory box is a great way to keep the memories safe, and because you can retain items that relate to a special person, it allows you to keep the memories alive.  Why not start you memory box now?
