We talk about the first time and the last time, romanticizing the romance and the goodbyes in Country songs and novels.
But the truth is, that first kiss, though sweet, is often awkward. And the first time that newborn babe is in your arms you’re as filled with fear as you are joy and relief.
It’s all those times in the middle that give that first memory meaning, that make that last goodbye bittersweet. When we’re so busy living and loving that we never even stop to mark the moment is when the moments are priceless, because we never know how many we have left. It’s in the in between when the memories are made.
