Friday Fun…Good Memories


Time for some Friday Fun. When I learned that today is Good Memory Day all kinds of memories ran through my mind. 


The word memory takes on many meanings.

There are the memories that bring a smile to our faces. If we’re looking at old photos of friends, family, and places something always pops up in our memory store. 

With the weekend just ahead of us, we may be planning an outing or event that will create even more memories. 


And then there is the feared memory…the one slipping away from family members and friends. 


To celebrate Good Memory Day…

~Think of a memory that brings a smile to your face. Whatever pops into your mind.

~Plan a memory-making moment for yourself, family, or friends.

~Do at least one thing to improve your own memory.

~ Get some exercise

~ Learn something new. (Playing the same solitaire over and over again does not exercise your brain like learning a new game will)

~Check your blood pressure

~Make a date with a friend or neighbor for coffee, a walk, or anything!  Social interaction is important

Let’s create some new fun memories and don’t forget the “use it or lose it” rule for memory!!!

Good morning Kathy. Some memories take on a whole new set of facts over the years, sometimes good and sometimes well.... Enjoy your day.

I agree Wayne Martin time and distance can alter, enhance and change our memories.

My girlfriends dad is 93. He is starting to lose some of his memories. I find this to be the saddest of all. My memories are my favorite possessions.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty I agree!  My friend who is just a year older than I am has Alzheimers. Her mother just turned 105 and is sharp as a tack.

Hello Kathy - I continue to test myself with memory games.  Usually played and practiced by me.  The stuff that goes in my head is best left there.  It's a solitary activity but not solitaire.  ♠️♣️♥️♦️

Michael Jacobs I keep trying!  I play different games and try to learn new things all of the time.

So many good memories, especially over the last couple of years. Plus many more from the decades before, kids, grandkids, the Camino, friends oh yes I could sit here all day with memories lifting my soul. However we plan to make some new memories this weekend going to celebrate the one year anniversary of a local micro-brewery with a friend.

I have so many good memories from times with people that are no longer around for one reason or another and it usually leads to me wishing they were still around so we could make more good memories together, haha.

I love the idea of make a memory day - we are going to Vail in March with my son and his boys and my daughter and her new husband.  Hopefully my husband's youngest son from his first marriage is going to come with his wife too.   We have to have a family photo on top of the mountain!

Kathy Streib: What a great idea. I missed this post and just saw it. A friend sent me some pictures of us over the last 40 years. What fun it was looking at the changes we went through together
