If you’ve read my second book then you know this quote.
God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December. James M Barrie
My 9th grade English teacher Mr. Taylor would write different quotes on the blackboard each day and we had to write a paragraph about what they meant to us. This is the only quote that I ever remembered. Now that I’m older it sticks with me because genetically there is Alzheimer’s disease in my biological family and I’ve watched people with that disease lose their short term memory but retain their long-term memory. So maybe those memories are really their roses.
