Family Treasured Moments

Memories are too precious indeed, and there are various life events in which you might want to remember after some time. But what are these memories anyway? These memories are usually those which have made you and your family happy (of course), not those bitter and sad ones. These life events that are kept treasured and cherished are as follows:

  • Maternity: You would not want to miss those months that you are pregnant, do you? One way to track those baby bumps during pregnancy is by gathering and comparing all those maternity photography or photos and create your own pregnancy journal or album (that is if you are soon to be a mom).
  • Newborn Baby / New Member of the Family: Of course your kids would want to see how they looked like when they were still a baby. Keep these newborn photography of each of your children in order for them to see how big the changes were from infantry to adulthood.
  • Birthday Celebrations: Everybody would want to remember how marvelous their birthday went. The celebrations when there are those people whom we love, and those gifts that we received from random people.
  • Holidays: Holidays such as Christmas Eve, Thanksgiving dinner, New Year’s Eve, Easter Egg Haunting, etc. are worth remembering for since these occasions are special most especially when you are with your loved ones. Keeping an album of holiday events will help you remember how you spent those days with who.

Further special events that I am quite sure that you would want to keep in heart and in mind are as follows:

  • Graduation Day: Yes, you would want to remember that feeling when you see your son or daughter walking up to the stage and receiving the diploma of all the hard works and sacrifices that all of you had given just to see them march. Or maybe you want to remember how proud you are to your children receiving their award for achieving academic excellence. And because of that, you throw a graduation party to celebrate the accomplishment.
  • Wedding Day and Anniversaries: That precious moment when both of you had made vows and exchanged your “I do’s” to each other. That moment when you became officially married and now living as one. Of course, you would want to reminisce those priceless memories with your lovely couple photography.
  • Mother’s Day and Father’s Day: These two special events which are celebrated in different dates help us celebrate the value of being a mother and a father. This is to acknowledge all the things such as sacrifices that all parents have done to their children and family and to thank them for everything. One way to express our gratitude is by giving them thank you cards.
  • Just want to keep ’em memories like when your kids are growing up, the love that siblings share with each other or their way of valuing their brotherhood and sisterhood, the changes of seasons, the funny and embarrassing moments, movie nights, etc.
  • Outdoor and Indoor Activities: These activities such as picnics, camping, trekking, mountain climbing, fishing, field trip, etc. are also kept since these brings you happy memories with your family and loved ones.

There are certain moments in which we do not want to end and we would actually wish it lasts forever, but we have to face the fact that time passes by and we have to move on. Though we can always go back to those moments which now turned into memories, but not physically. At least we know in our hearts and minds that those memories exist and are kept treasured. And these memories have given us happiness which nobody can steal and will never fade.
