What Is A Memory? [poem]

Something non-bead-related for you tonight...
My daughter Tara is 10 years old and she loves to write. She has written over 40 'books' and countless poems. This is a poem she wrote tonight for my Dad's 70th birthday.

What Is A Memory?

What is a memory?
A memory is a small warmth in your heart
A memory makes you cry
A memory makes you laugh
A memory is something faint in your brain
A memory is a friendship
A memory is a loss
A memory is something very valuable
A memory is something that hangs in your thoughts until the end of your days
A memory is a memory in so much special ways
A memory is a dying flower or a growing weed
A memory can even just be a seed
A memory is a spiral
A memory is a line
A memory is every thing!
Every second is a thought
Every day is a memory!
Jump and dance!
Enjoy life!
Have a ball!
Scuffle across the floor!
Do something no one never done before!
We're headed to Florida tomorrow to celebrate my Dad's birthday. I'm looking forward to the beach!

WE ALWAYS KNEW THAT TARA WAS A VERY SPECIAL CHILD, BUT I HAD NO IDEA SHE WAS ALREADY A WRITER. THIS IS A WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY WISH FOR GRANDPA, I JUST KNOW HE'LL LOVE IT.

OUR WEATHER IS DOWN TO THE LOWER 80S AND HIGH 70S. THE WATER TEMPERATURE IS STILL RIGHT AROUND 80, SO THE BEACH SCENE IS STILL ABSOLUTELY PERFECT, WITH LOTS OF FRESH FRUITS AND GREENS STILL AVAILABLE. WHAT PART OF FLORIDA ARE YOU COMING TO? HAVE LOTS OF GREAT TIMES AND TAKE PICTURES.

I'LL BE BACK IN SEDONA IN A LITTLE OVER A MONTH. WILL SEE YOU GIRLS, SOON.
