Sweet sounds of yesteryear ringing through my head


The memory of little ones nuzzled into me in bed


The sounds of their little feet running down the hall


Their sweet little voices, singing “Mommy”, as they’d call


Laughter ringing through the home in every little nook


Bedtime gathered all around as I’d read their favourite book


Crayons and storybooks, dolls, Lego and trucks


Walks to the riverside to feed the little ducks


Sunshine gleaming off their hair, moonlight on their face


There is no other memory that has such a spacial place

  2. Thank you for this post. I tend to focus on the negative when I remember my family memories. It’s better that I retrain these memory traces. Bless you Easter Ellen. Bless you.


    • 🙂 and bless you Gary. I have a lot of negative memories also from a very abusive husband/father to my children. Those memories are there also, but I have chosen to focus on the memories that I am so thankful for as they lift my day in beauty instead of pulling me into despair.
      Both memories are active, both feelings are also… just I choose to hope 🙂
      Bless you lots,


    • 🙂 I am trying to make myself respond to prompts with something meaningful and not just a filler.. a new challenge to myself. Not sure I can always come through…. but I like todays 🙂
      Thanks so much Morgan,
      Bless you lots!

  5. This was very sweet. I love the way you’ve worded this. I haven’t gotten to the point of ‘yesteryear’ yet, but my son who is 14, is a blessing to me, so I understand this post well.


    • 🙂 Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on this. My youngest daughter is 15, and my other three are in their twenties.. them memories that I treasure are the ones that are with their hand holding mine.
      Have a wonderful night.
