JOURNALING FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
Leave a great gift to your kids and grandkids, your loving memories. Think about all the things you want to share with them. Stories of how they grew up, your own childhood, loving memories of life.
1. You growing up
2. Aunts and Uncles
3. Grandparents, Great Grandparents
4. The big snow storm
Everyone loves stories, especially when it involves family. Write about the day they were born, your first Christmas memory, your first vacation, camping trip. These memories will be enjoyed for years and years and passed down from generation to generation. Now families are scattered around the world, like mine, and these stories need to be written down in order to survive. Every family has stories about long ago they enjoy. I remember one about my Grandmother being a midwife.
Write about the day your children were born to hand down to your grandchildren.
Write them all down as you remember them. Don’t worry about spelling, just write the story.
“The thing about family disasters is that you never have to wait long before the next one puts the previous one into perspective.” ~Robert Brault
