As I browsed my Twitter feed this morning, I came across a promotional post via Southern Authors (@SoAuthors3) introducing Joe Harwell, a Tulsa-based author who writes historical fiction novels. A pinned post at the top of Joe's Twitter page (@HarwellJoe) caught my eye—a keepsake story about a ring and an Easter memory.
At the end of Joe's story he notes, "Funny how things fade from memory and can be brought back by the simplest things." That single, eloquent statement is the essence of Project Keepsake. We keep things near to us to help us remember—to help us never forget the people, places, and events in a lifetime that are sacred to us. We don't want certain memories to fade away like fog lifting from a grassy field—present one moment, then gone the next. Keepsakes help us keep those very special memories in focus.
Thanks to Joe for allowing me to reprint his keepsake story. And thanks to all of you for reading about keepsakes and the special memories they contain.
I know you have a keepsake—or two, or three. Share your story with me and the world.
