We've just celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary.  We spent the weekend revisiting the houses we had both lived in in our early lives, and were amazed that they were all still there - some much extended and improved, others just as we had remembered them. 
As we turned round each corner, there were memories. The shop where we bought a footstool, still much in use, the church where our 35 year old daughter went to playschool. It was a nostalgic weekend, and as we pulled up outside our current home, I realised that the future still has much to unfold.  Today I'm looking after my grandchildren, and we have been painting at the kitchen table. They are the future and time spent with them is building memories for them.  Will they look back in 40 years and remember happy times in this house, baking, painting, playing hide and seek?
Each of us has a store of memories, built up over the years and they are what make us who we are.  So....
Take each day and make it memorable, build stories that are positive for the future, and never miss a chance to have fun.

You know what they say - life is a test. It is only a test. Had it been an actual life, you would have received further instructions on where to go and what to do!
