There are some mornings that we will never forget, simply because on those particular mornings, we were exceptionally blessed, in some unique or wonderful way.  

These mornings seem to be etched like drawings, in our mind's eye. It is like they are portrayed as pictures or paintings, that are stored in our memory. They can never be erased. Nor would we want them to be!  

Do you have some of those exceptional mornings in your life? At first you might say no, but think about it for a moment.

Looking back over your entire life, surely there must be at least one forever morning, that was truly wonderful to you. Maybe you have several, or perhaps there are many of them tucked away in your mind.  

Relax and enjoy them for a moment!  

Most mornings are relatively uneventful and seem to disappear from our memory over time. There does not seem to be any reason to retain them.  

It would seem these memories or unique moments in our lives, are categorized somewhere, or somehow. Like files in a folder, they are stored in our mind's lock box.  

Sometimes, we can retrieve them, but not always. These memories seem to fade in time, as fresh, new ones, move into the center of our lives and attract our attention  

A forever morning might be one in which a particular person, like your mother, stood in her favorite spot in your family garden, wearing a straw hat and holding a hoe. Maybe it is one where your father was using his hammer and saw to build you a dollhouse, when you were a young child.  

Perhaps you remember a wonderful morning, when a younger sister or baby brother was born. Perhaps a special grandparent, an aunt or uncle, came to visit. Maybe a big brother or sister came home from somewhere and brought you some kind of a treasure, that you had always wanted.

Or maybe you woke up somewhere, when you were on a trip and realized that your dream of traveling to that specific destination, had suddenly come true. Maybe you had planned and saved your entire life, for that particular holiday.  

These kinds of dreams are actually achieved!  

Maybe there is something that you planned to do and it finally happened. You were instrumental in bringing it into being. Or maybe someone else helped you to do it. Perhaps it was a high school, college, or university graduation.  

Whatever the circumstance of the forever morning, treasure it.  

It could be as simple as seeing a sunrise on a lake, while you were out camping and canoeing, in the early morning. Maybe you managed to capture a beautiful sunrise, with your camera, or on a video.  

Perhaps it was one in which a pet that was with you, played a very important role. Maybe you were playing with small children, in that particular memory. Were you the child?  

While we dwell in the present, it is important to collect some of those forever mornings. Living life fully and loving every moment of it, is really important!  

Touching and changing other people's lives in some way, may not seem to be important to you, but perhaps over time, be aware that you are helping to build forever mornings, in their lives too. Moments that they can treasure, are just as important to them over time, as they are to you.  

Everyone needs to have some forever mornings in their lives!  

What forever morning memories we collect during our lives, does not really seem to matter. The important thing is that we do have some to treasure.  

The time to experience them is always in the present. They can be recalled and celebrated in the future.    

Let this morning and each morning, be a forever morning in your life. Find someway to make each morning special. Treasure its memory! You have been blessed with it. It is yours and it is special. So are you!    

Maybe this morning will be a one forever morning for you. I hope so!

    • Hey there shopgirl1960 aka Della,

      That is exactly what I hoped would happen, when I woke up this morning, with this title on my mind.  

      Take care, God bless and collect some more forever morning memories!
