I'm trying to contemplate how my life is changing. In just a few months our youngest child will be graduating high school. Just how has this many year gone by? It seems like it was just yesterday we were bringing Brandon home from the hospital (Alachua General, which is now closing it's doors; it opened in 1928!) with his big brother, Aunt Karen, Aunt Amy and his Dad in tow. If you can believe this because I still can't....When we left the hospital, I wanted to go to Target!!! Was I nuts??? I guess that was the deep down shopper in me!! Something very sweet happened while we were in Target. I had Brandon in his carrier sitting inside the buggy. Colby (only 2 1/2 years old), climbed to ride on the end of the buggy and looked at Brandon and believe it or not Brandon smiled back at him! Brandon was only 2 days old. Yes it may have been gas, but I like to believe it was Colby and Brandon forming a brotherly bond. It just completely melted my heart!!!!! Thank goodness for memories and we have those to look back upon our life. I am following a blog and the lady posted this question and she told what it meant to her and then asked her fellow bloggers to post what it meant to each of us:

What the heart once owned and had, it shall never lose."Henry Ward Beecher
How about telling me what it means to you?
Have a wonderful day!!

Wow!I would def say that was the day the brotherhood was formed. Thats pretty cool! =)
As far as the quote, the meaning is as it states. What was once in your heart (good/bad memories, experiences, people), will always be there. And no matter how hard we may try to forget, we find it impossible. But the good things, such as the sound of someone's voice who has now passed, those things fade from our memory with the passing of time; and that is unfortunate.
