Memories, Light The Corners of My Mind

When you are on Facebook, there are these little notes you can get from people to learn more about each other, similar to "Memes" in the blogging world.

One that is circulating now is on about Memories. Here is the premise...

Leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot anything you remember. Don't send a message; leave a comment on here. Next repost this in your notes and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

It has been interesting the memories people have shared. Some I don't remember doing. Others I kind of remember, while others are very vivid. Thankfully they have all been very positive memories. A lot of people remember my laugh.

Here are a few of the things people shared about their memories of me:

My favorite memory of you was when you stepped up and learned the part for Dracula in like, what, a couple of days. Those plays we all did together are great memories. Oh yes and the "kiss". Now there's one to remember.

One of my fondest memories was the one time we stayed up at your place. You made us feel so at home. I have said time and time again, it is one of my favorite trips and I would love to do it again.

I remember your terrific laugh! I'm laughing now just thinking about your terrific laugh :) Fantastic singing voice! Very fun room mate times in the in the Zoo with five other Delta "animals" :) So looking forward to seeing you this summer and making more fun memories...

I remember the moment that I realized you were my second grade teacher's daughter?!!! Not only was a lot to take in, but then that we might be related one day!! I thought I was the luckiest girl in the world. I loved Mrs. Woolum!!

You have to know what I'm going to say. Go ahead, guess. KHS cafeteria. Wizard of Oz. And Lucy--in the summertime in your summer palace, wearing your crown in swimming and everything. I could so go on.

I love all the recipes you would try. (nothing better than switching things up!). I think you were the first person i ever made bread with. And you would invite me and Drew over for dinner to taste all the wonderful food. Handwritten, handmade inspirations... Your book collection...wow. I have a memory of when Zoe was born... and you didn't have AC and it was like 110ยบ and you were sitting on the couch with her little diapered body... and you were dripping with sweat.
You always did something extra special for us, dinner or making something fun... such a great Aunt. And how you always talked to us, and cared about what we thought about things...

I remember how welcome you made this hometown boy feel in his first few days as freshman at the University of Idaho and made sure to invite me to Campus Crusade for Christ which majorly impacted my first semester at college. Thank you so much!

I really appreciate your layed-back, easy-going style. I wish I could be like that. Also your laugh, you have a great laugh!

You know, sometimes you feel like such a dork, and that you really did some stupid things, but then you get some people leaving comments like this, and you realize, maybe you weren't so bad after all.

A lot of people in blogland have been talking about having the winter blahs. Well, I'll tell you, reading comments like these picked me right up.

Feel free to leave a memory in the comment section if you'd like. I'd love to hear what you have to share.

I remember being asked to heip cut down the basketball net when KHS won the District Title in basketball, for the first time in about a decade...after I had left teaching and gone back to school.
