Time in a Bottle

Special birthdays only come along every 10 years or more.
We are celebrating my husbands birthday here today.
There was a dinner party for him with close friends
and we shared stories of times gone by.
The bottles lining the table were part of my husband's collection;
so the invite said we would be sharing time in a bottle.
More than that we had a wonderful collection of memories
from many friends and family.
The memories were tucked into these envelopes and
tied with a tag that said:

"Sometimes you will never know the true value
of a moment
until it becomes a Memory."

Treasure those small moments because they do become memories.

This hits especially hard for me after just learning that friend Sarge will not be having another birthday this year.

Happy birthday to your hubby. Hug him real good...
