Times like this are special. Memory builders. When something
extraordinary happens to a person, the kind of things
remembered forever after don’t have to be life-changing events
like a graduation or, marriage or, birth of a child. It’s more
often the small things. The sheer joy of summer sunlight on a
fragrant flower. The giggle of a toddler. Seeing and talking
with an old friend. The brush of a lover's fingertips. And the
person marks the moment with a flashing insight by thinking...
“This is special. I should remember this”.
