Frozen in time, my favourite memories forever

In my previous blog, I told you about how I have frozen images of my family forever. Today, I want to tell you about some of the memories that I have frozen in time forever! They are all available to me upon instant recall and will never die for as long as I shall live. So, here goes!

First, standing with my parents in front of the Manger looking down at Baby Jesus in the arms of Mother Mary. It’s a Christmas memory of course and I can even envision the flickering candles in the background. Mom and dad are all dressed up and are standing quietly on each side of me. Then in keeping with the Christmas theme, a table loaded with all kinds of delicious food with the family standing around. The food lights up the long table with all of its various colors; from green and red vegetables to rich brown colored meat, white rice, green peas, and pale yellow potato stuffing. Top it off with that unforgettable picture of Christmas lights in the shape of a champagne glass at the roundabout!

Next comes memories of blue skies, a beaming sun, a beach of yellow sand, and white capped waves rolling gently towards the shore and a green sea with boats sailing noiselessly off shore. Then me lying on my back in the peaceful ocean looking up at puffy white clouds gliding overhead and dad swimming close by and mom looking on from the beach.

Next comes memories of the silver Air Canada jet bird gliding gracefully over a deep blue Caribbean sea. The golden sun above is shining on the blue sea and then the silver jet bird drifts inland and I see roads, cars, and greenery.

Then my memories of me ice skating on an outdoor rink. Christine and Jason are with me and we enjoy the blinking Christmas lights. Then memories of my beloved Montreal Canadiens hockey team skating up the ice celebrating the victory of a Stanley Cup! O how marvelous!

Finally, the face of Pope John Paul II on his visit to Toronto in 2002. How could I ever forget the image of him descending the stairs of his plane after it had touched down at Toronto’s airport.

All frozen in time forever!
