Memories are all we'll ever have.

When all is said and gone all that will remain is our legacy; memories we have left or made with those who are dear to our hearts. Memories are all we've ever had. 

We have all suffered grief and a loss of some sort feeling that deep longing to be with that person again whom we have lost, but the only thing we have that remains are their memories.
Memories are the best we've ever had. 

In my mom's memory and in her legacy, I live. We hold memories like photos printed in our hearts and minds. Though I can share no more experiences with her, her memory lives on through the way I choose to live my life. 

Once a memory is made, it has the power to last eternally. Our belongings, however, will fade away. Holding on to our memories, making new memories, and sharing memories of those who have gone on before us. 

Memories are the best we've ever had. 
I walked these halls 
I walk them now 
All that remains are memories 
Memories so far so near 
So real and so dear 
I hold you like a photo in my mind 
Your memory I will not leave behind. 

Memories are the best we've ever had. 

For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ. -Colossians 2:5
