I am sure that everyone has had one of those moments when someone will say something, or something happens, and the words of a song begin playing in your head. It is almost as if your brain has become a jukebox, doing it's part to get you through the moment, make you smile, or what ever it is that you seem to need at the moment. I had that experience as I was sitting here trying to decide whether to spend a few moments formulating this blog, or doing one of the other tasks that I have been working on.
One of my projects is that I downloaded all of my digital photographs on to my computer. I downloaded the jump drive, and I must not have done it right, because I had duplicates and I had lost all of the folders. The photos were still there, just all in one gigantic folder. I had over 10,600 photos to go through. I went through and eliminated the duplicates, now I have been using those few minutes that you get during the day to work them into folders and files.
Yesterday I put together some of my family photos. I am an adult orphan, my parents have both passed on, as have many of my Aunts, Uncles and even some cousins. I put those photos into a file, and while doing so, and even as I just thought about it, I could hear the line from the Bee Gees classic, words;
Smile that everlasting smile,
That will bring you near to me,
Don't let me ever find you gone,
That would bring a tear to me.
It just amazes me that our subconscious knows exactly how to interpet our thoughts and does what it does to make the situation better. I am thankful for those memories, but more for the people that created those memories that have blessed my life!
