I saw this thought a while back and still can't get it out of my mind. I have been blessed with many adventures on my journey. I lived in a time before cell phones when I was on many of those journeys. I captured the stories, the beautiful scenery, and the adventures in my memory. I could have taken photos the old-fashioned way and in some cases I did, but those can never measure up to my visual memory I hold within. We spend too much energy and time today trying to save every single moment, instead of living the moment. In our house I have mentioned before how we have limited photos on a wall and mini memory books filled with only a few photos from each memorable experience alone with written stories, favorite quotes, and such. I have always encouraged my kids to re-tell the stories so that they are captured forever in their memory and heart. If there was a fire tomorrow and we lost everything, I would hope it would be just a moment of sadness for all they needed was in their minds' eyes. Think about it the next time you are trying to capture that special day, but you are actually missing the beautiful moment completely.
