Killer Memory


As previously discussed, I have an awesome memory.

One thing that my mind stores up insanely well is dates. Dates where  this or that happened.

For example:

March 26, 2008

March 25, 2009

August 18, 2009

August 20, 2009

August 22, 2009

October 25, 2009

January 31, 2010

April 19, 2010 {71 days later}

August13, 2010

October 4, 2010

November 2, 2010

December 25, 2010

February 23, 2011

March 14, 2011

and 

June 2, 2011

All of these dates are ingrained in my memory. There are others, but these are all part of a chain of events related to one another. 

A chain of events that brought me the greatest JOY I have ever known. 

And the greatest heartache.

If you notice the last date ... a year ago today.  

It wasn't the end of the chain of events {because July 27 2011, August 6, 2011, August 22, 2011 and February 3, 2012  demand to be remembered also}, but for all intents and purposes, it was the beginning of the seeming end.

Sometimes, I wish my memory wasn't that good. 

Today is one of those days.

It's amazing how fast a year goes by.

It's amazing how it feels like it was just yesterday.

It's amazing how it feels like nothing has changed, yet almost nothing is the same.

It's amazing how far a year can separate the inseparable. 

It's amazing how much a heart can change in 365 days. How they can harden ... and how they can soften. 

It's amazing where a single choice can take us in that amount of time. 

It's amazing how 12 months can make the most familiar person completely unrecognizable ... and  how they can become just a stranger you have memories with.

Tonight my evening was filled with friends, food and good memories.

It needed to be. To make up for this day last year.

I mean, seriously, I had third dinner. You rarely can go wrong when you get three dinners.

P.s. I realized that the last two Junes I have posted every day. I am not sure if I am up to it this year. But we shall see. :)

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend! :)

How do you remember so well? Do you keep a journal that we blog readers don't get to see ????
