I remember my favorite thing to do was roller skate
I remember skating in my huge hardwood floored bedroom for hours and hours
I remember dad was right there resting in the next room after work
I remember our little black toy cocker
I also remember her growling at me every time I skated by her
I remember how good it smelled the night before and the next day for the Portugese festa.That food even the thought of it makes my mouth water..
how I loved the mint sprigs on you plate of meat and thick slced bread and meat juices
I remember Christmases and helping each member of the family decorate their trees
I remember the excitment of I'd catch that old rascal, never did darn it
I remember the joy of presents and being the only child I was covered with them
I remember later that day choosing 5 presents and taking them to a childrens center all wrapped in pretty paper and ribbons and seeing the big eyes of boys and girls as they got a new toy
I remember many things, but I remember the kindness of my sisters and brothers here at
dc always giving to those in need..
boy are you all special

What a beautiful memory, Babe! Those are my strongest memories, too. I've been remembering my son Nick's birth (almost 28 years ago) a lot lately since he's getting married this weekend. (Where have the years gone?) He was the first of my children to be born at home and because it was so relaxed, I spent hours marveling over him and thinking of all the things I wanted for him. I decided what I wanted most was for him to be a happy person, regardless of circumstance. And I'm so glad it has turned out that way.

I remember a very tall young man, who was on the best NCAA basketball team on earth. I remember lots about him. I remember him teasing me, I remember his coach pulling my pony tail, I remember him teaching me how to shoot free throws, I remember practicing hours on end shooting and reshooting those free throws, alone and single minded on one thing, those shots. I remember his beautiful long legs, all 7'2''. I remember the smell of the basketball court, the soft voice of the coach, the high numbering scoreboard, that no one could beat them, and that I loved being somewhat involved. I also remember my boyfriend then, husband now, wasn't amused, still isn't.

I remember when each of my kids were babies they would happily shove anything I made in thier mouths, and smear it all over their faces for good measure....

Now they just smear it all over the table and say "I dont like this"......
:(

I remember being best friend's with my husband, knowing he had a crush on me.
I remember how patiently he waited while I dated one jerk after another.
I remember ending a very emotionally abusive relationship and stopping to say hi to him at work and as I walked away I said to myself, "Why can't I find a nice guy like him?" (DUH!). 3 years later we got married.
I remember how badly we wanted to have a child and how after a year he took it upon himself to get tested and found a doctor to help us. I had A.I. and it took the first time. That was April 1996.
I remember November 1996 giving birth to the most perfect little boy.
And every morning when I see my son and my husband's face I remember why I was put on this earth.

I remember Boy Scout camp, and the smell of the fire in the morning as we started it up for breakfast and then sitting around it at night. And the first time we made hot cocoa with coffee instead of water.
I remember getting the mile swim badge, and I remember becoming an Eagle Scout.
I remember picking up my two best friends and heading to the next town over to go roller skating. We loved it when they played "Unskinny Bop" and "Cherry Pie".
I remember taking my wife on our first date. I took her to Godfather's Pizza and we saw the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes". Then she refused a second date and went out with another guy for a couple of months. Then she came back to me after dumping him.
I remember each of my kids births, and holding them for the first time. I even remember changing my first diaper, the nurse was impressed with my 'skill' LOL.

I remember high school plays, singing with the Company of Song, going with the team to all their games then cheering for our team and secretly having the hugest crush on a certain basketball player that was senior to me by a year. > wishing he'd more than notice me [and] actually call me his girlfriend.
I remember him ditching his girlfriend and calling me saying, "Get ready, I'm picking you up in 10 minutes." "where are we going?" I'd ask, "doesn't matter" he'd say. He'd take me 'everywhere'. To the beach, to the movies, to Andy's to get torpedo sandwiches. He'd pick me up and carry me along the rain gutters of school on Sunday to get our homework out of our lockers, so I'd get soaked and my poor hair, kinky/curly/fuzzy/frizzy gawd awful hair [I lived in Malibu by the beach, it was supposed to be shiny straight] would get so wet then kink up like a spider web. I remember being so sad about that hair of mine and thinking, it doesn't bother him though. He was the best friend to me, very caring and kind hearted. Loved him....such a sweetheart...

I remember... a church so beautiful in Greece where the glass windows had colors I swear I'd never seen before. I remember thinking that even though I don't speak a word of Greek... Greek friends who were now dead could understand my well wishes because they were being wished from this beautiful place. I remember how dirty it was because it was old and unused but i can still remember how the sun still made it beautiful. I remember how I made Paul wait out side becasue for some reason I had to be alone for awhile with that beauty. I remember and still wonder why that for that few minutes I couldn't share it even with the person I love the most. I remember going back a few years later and being unable to capture that feeling again....
