A few months ago, Alex Hurst at Memoirs of a Time Here-After, posted about the holiday season in Japan where she has been living and working. Her post included an opportunity to receive a New Year’s postcard and of course, I was game.
We exchanged addresses, I sent her a Christmas card, and then I waited with anticipation … until yesterday. A colourful postcard for the New Year arrived as promised!
… but it was the hand-written sentiment that really caught my attention. “Make a thousand new memories to share!”
I’ve been given – and have made – some audacious goals in the past, but this one made me blink.
A thousand new memories?
What a wonderful and thoughtful sentiment to give someone like me who is always curious, wanting to chase what’s around the next corner, trying to drag along family and friends with me.
So I share with you Alex’s wish for 2016 … many your new year also be filled with a thousand new beautiful memories.
I shall be busy making them.
