A few years ago, I accidentally dropped my cellphone in water. I quickly picked it up from the puddle but the phone was long gone. That night, I cried. “It’s just a cell phone, Gabby,” my mother said, but to me, it was more than that. You see, In that little device, I was holding on to memories. Memories that were kept in my photo album that I know were lost forever. 3 years of my son’s life were just gone in the blink of an eye. The only photos I have of him now are the ones I printed or uploaded to my Instagram profile.
Ever since that day, I made a promise I would always print my favorite photos. while I still have those 3 years of his life saved in the back of my brain, I wish with all of my heart that I had those physical photos to look at and hold. It is my promise to you that I never let you go through the same thing I did.
