my tiny little puppy, the scar on my foot and in my heart

This is an old photo, it was one of those "memories" that showed up on my Facebook today. It's a memory that made me cry.  I still have that sweet puppy and he's healthy and fine.  The tears came as I remembered where that scar on my foot came from.  I was at my aunt's house and we made adult blender drinks.  We put the blender in the freezer.  Her son got ice cream and put it back.  The next time I opened the freezer the blender fell out and crashed and the handle landed upright in my foot and left that scar.  Ryan was 9 years old when that happened.  It was 1988.  Sadly we lost Ryan in 2013.  At the time his only daughter was 9 years old.  Sometimes those moments of tears can come from anywhere when something you see, think or feel makes you think about someone you've lost.

Good luck everything! I think you’ll be back to normal movement around the house and so forth and so on.

I agree with you about memories. It can be something small that reminds us of either happy things or sad. And it's also interesting how those memories can trigger other memories, like a ping pong ball in our head.

Our scars often remind us of emotional times in our lives, I am sure that Ryan is looking down on you.

Endre Barath, Jr. well he's not forgotten.  So very many young people in my family are gone and while it's sad for those of us left behind I'm a person of faith that thinks I'll see them again.

Laura Cerrano oh the scar came 25 years ago.  Just seeing it made me think about the little boy there when it happened.

Kat Palmiotti absolutely one can lead right to the next.  I never think of one of my cousins lost too soon without thinking of the other two.  Two were young parents and the other was still just a child... 16.  And that memory usually leads to thinking of our two nephews gone to soon.  Sometimes I think of them with sadness and missing and sometimes I just remember happy things and smile and go one.  

Brian England I'm sure of that.  As is Christopher, Russell, Kellen and Jay, all young men in my closely connected family gone too soon for me.  But I know I'll see them all again someday.

Sometimes memories come to us subconsciously to tell us something. We just need to listen.

Good morning again Tammy. Funny what triggers a memory and how overwhelming it can be. May his memory be for a blessing.

Joe Pryor I have always felt that way too Joe.  sometimes it takes me time to figure out the message, but I look until I can.

Sheila Anderson I have very fond memories of him and he called himself my Abigail's "big brother" because his mom was my birthing partner and had a card that said "certified father can go in the delivery room" (you know back in the day when the entire family and neighborhood wasn't invited in) and we had fibbed a little and told him his mom was going to be my baby's daddy and they would have her 6 months of the year.  He was very disappointed when that didn't occur.  I did visit a lot when she was small though.  he's the sweet child holding my baby Abigail in this photo.  Perhaps he's letting me know he's sorry he won't be in the waiting room waiting for Cooper like he was her mama.

Tammy- it makes me sad just reading the story. It's funny how a word, or song, a glimpse of someone or something out of the corner of your eye can bring back all kinds of memories.

Tammy you just never know - he just might be in the waiting room   At times I've gotten this way when I miss my Mom.....but then I think, she would want me to be happy so I move forward.  Big hugs to you!
