    Memories Are Valuable to Me!

    I am soooo sentimental.  Things that have meaning to me - have special memories attached to them - those are the things that hold value for me - those are the things that I want to have in my life. I never truly knew my dad's parents/my grandparents - they were not good...

    I like reminiscing happy memories,

    enjoy watching babies, looking at old pictures, keeping souvenirs. I am moved to tears when I am being sung "Happy Birthday," I cry when watching love stories, I get teary-eyed when I speak from the heart. I am so soppy, indeed. ;)

    Attached To So Many Things

    I get attached to so many things! I still play with stuffed animals because I can't turn them away. I get attached to flowers and spend hours talking to them. I cry and feel sad when some I love is taken away. Then I imagine it's soul some where else. I feel so alone and crazy...

    Things That Are Sweet And Quaint Give Me The Warm Fuzzies

    I think part of being sentimental means believing there was a time in the past, whether it be your own past or some historic past, that was sweeter, simpler, and more enjoyable than where you currently are. Maybe this is a fallacy, but thinking back on my childhood Christmases...

    Maybe too much. People enter my life then fade

    away like ghosts. All i am left with are memories and questions. I wonder if they ever think about me and the things we shared and enjoyed. probably not, since they vanished forever

    My Reminders...

     All of my memories are important to me. I keep my favorite reminders in a journal, and a box under my bed has all kinds of junk from the past few years. I also have a dresser in my closet that is full of birthday cards and little toys from when I was a lot younger. I love...

    That Light In The Trees...

    When I look back, I am always comforted by certain memories. Even what seemed so bad at the time, had some characteristics worth remembering. I have always found myself taking parts of the events of life and storing them away in my mind to recall whenever I want. The times...
