Keepsakes: Treasures From The Heart

We all have something that reminds us of someone we loved and lost. Our lives are so busy today and we are running around and always in a hurry. Sometimes we stop quickly…we never know when we will see it…and then we spot it, we stop in our tracks. It may be a vase that we have in our home and walk by it every day, a picture on the wall, an old wine bottle, a medal, a piece of jewelry, an old tea pot, a chair, or a chandelier hanging from the ceiling, something that reminds us or brings us back to a memory of a friend, a parent, a brother or sister, or husband or wife. That special someone who you thought would be around forever to share in your life, and then they were gone…We have little treasures at home — “keepsakes” that we hold, smell, look at, or even hug sometimes. The feelings we get of presence and love, we cannot describe, only feel. For these keepsakes help keep memories of our lost ones alive in our hearts, and knowing that they are very close to us in our everyday lives. Read these stories from these amazing people that share their most intimate feelings and memories of people that have died, and then pull out some of your keepsakes and know that your loved one is there very close to you. Shed a tear or bear a smile…and think and feel the memories of your “Keepsake”…

 

I really like the idea behind this book. It is “A collection of personal photos & stories of cherished memories”. I found myself thinking of my own stories as I read the stories from other people. Although I did not know any of these people, I could tell that we have shared emotions and loss.

Written by Jay Lucas...Stories That Inspire: Eileen DoyonRecently, I became acquainted with a local author who is determined to support veterans and help them reflect on their emotions. She also knows how to communicate the love and affection that dogs can bring to our lives – and much more. Eileen Doyon is an accomplished writer of children’s books and resides here in Portsmouth. She and I both grew up in small towns and today call Portsmouth home. A few years back Eileen lost her father, a veteran. Make no mistake about it, no matter how old we are or how many kids we have, when we lose a parent, we all feel the same sense of emptiness. Rather than wallow in the grief, Eileen’s experience inspired her to start what is known as ‘Unforgettable Faces and Stories.’ This series of books, ranging from pets we love, to honoring our first responders, allows us all to reflect and express our emotions in a very unique way. Her published works share stories of missing loved ones and how it's important that we all share our stories in a way that allows us to grow emotionally and potentially have a positive impact on others. One of Eileen’s recent publications is titled "Lucky...Little Guy, BIG Mission"The book is based on a true story of a disabled veteran who raises Lucky to be a service dog. Lucky would join the over 500,000 dogs helping our veterans and the disabled enjoy a good life. These four-legged companions are there not only for endless love and devotion but help make people’s lives a little bit easier.The book, ‘Unforgettable Faces and Stories’ is truly inspiring. I encourage everyone to visit unforgettablefacesandstories.com and learn more about it, order a book, and join Eileen in making a difference. In closing, as you may know I love dogs, and as I suspect you likely have already figured out, every chance I’m able, I enjoy sharing stories about dogs here in the Sunshine Report. I know you will love Eileen’s work and the amazing story about Lucky. Meanwhile, I would be remiss if I didn't also give a little plug here for Hero Pups, a NH based organization specializing in training service dogs and placing them with military families and others in need of love and support. I invite you to visit their site and learn more about this terrific organization: heropups.com Am sure you will find their mission to be uplifting, positive and worthy of support! ...
