How to choose a favorite memory? This is hard. I kind of feel like Emily in Our Town when she asks to go back and the Stage Manager tells her, “Choose the least important day in your life. It will be important enough.” She knows it can't be after she was married or after her children were born. The days my children were born... the day my husband and I got married. All of those are precious precious memories. When my grandchildren were born (I was actually able to be in the room with my second daughter when her first child was born...that was very special). I was able to be in the room when my niece was born as well ...that was cool, because I had c-sections with all of mine!
Another favorite memory.... Marianne saying, "I have an idea..." lol... trust me. That conversation was life-changing!!
My trip to Ireland with a couple of girlfriends... such wonderful memories from those few weeks... the Cliffs of Moher, having tea in front of the turf fire, having drinks in the local pub.
Sunrises and sunsets on the coast.
Starting back into community theatre after a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong break.... Clairee in Steel Magnolias...way too many awesome memories with that show and the others I've done since then.
Nope, sorry... can't do it. I cannot pick out one favorite memory. I love my life and treasure all the memories...even the not so good ones, because they all combine to make me who I am. And, I have to admit, I kinda like that person.
How about you? Do you have a favorite memory?
