para que serve? | what's the use of it?

A memória de uma coisa boa que sentimos. Escrevemos num papelinho, dobramos e pomos dentro da algibeirinha. Porque os dias são tão longos (e com quatro filhos ainda mais) e o aborrecimento, a raiva, a angústia têm um peso que nos engana e esmaga. Ao espreitar lá para dentro, só a vista dos papelinhos alivia o coração e a alma. Quase nem é preciso lê-los nem tentar lembrar o que escrevemos. Voltamos a sorrir.
Um fim terapêutico, portanto.

*english version*
To remember good feelings. We write them down in a little piece of paper, fold it and put it inside the little pouch. Because days are so incredibly long (and four children make them even longer), and boredom, anger and anguish are really heavy, fooling and smashing us. When sneaking inside the little pouch, the sight of the little pieces of paper makes you feel much much better. You don’t even have to read them nor try to remember what you wrote. You smile again.
A healing purpose, thus.
