Remember when you were young and beautiful
How much beauty did you see?
Remember when you knew everything
How much did you understand?
Remember when you stood out among the crowd
How much did you stand like the Savior?
Remember when you were perfect
How much compassion did you show?
Remember when you decided you were no longer beautiful
What now do you see?
Remember when you realized you had a long way to go
What are you learning now?
Remember when you started blending in
What marks do you now bear?
Remember when you crashed and burned
What arms came close around you?
I see the beauty in my daughter’s smile and son’s laughter
I am learning patience, tolerance and kindness
I try to look and sound the way I know I should
My father in heaven held me close and loved me anyway
ON A LIGHTER NOTE: Due to serious pressure from Stephanie and some curiosity of my own we will play the remember game!
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.
EVERYBODY PLAY! I want to see what memories are out there!
