salted caramel memories

“Time passed, and pain turned to memory" (Cinderella 2015). 

The poignant elegance of this single sentence astounds. It captures beauty in the sad. It tells a thousand tales of past, present, and future. It tells my tale. 

With humbled heart, I want to give thanks for the passing of time. I've thought about how it is such a gift that it flies by the way that it does.

So full of love. I'm thankful for all the love and goodness that I do have. And I will be ever grateful that time flies by until the day that I don't because I wish I had more.

    1. Stacey, thank you for this comment. It was a wonderful surprise to get such wonderful words almost a week later.
