Ramblings of an Average American Girl

My Memory

Images and memories get filed away in our brains in a certain way. For me, for example, events in my life are divided by several different events that have effected my life.  My daughter asks, “Mom, when did we go to Chicago for that….blah, blah, blah?” And I think back, “Was that before my dad died?” It helps me to locate the memory in the file cabinets of my brain. My dad died just before my 28th birthday, so anything post 28 years old is after my dad died.  I have so many events, both triumphant and tragic that have attached themselves to the way I remember or recall my life. My daughter was born when I was 15 and just finishing my freshman year of high school. So I recall events from high school by storing them before she was born or after. (She is now 22 and the most amazing, beautiful woman I know.) Before or after my son was born? Before or after The Divorce? Before or after The Move? I do not remember things by date or my age; but by the most memorable events that have altered my life, and changed me, bettered me, or hurt me the most.
