Life Story

I have loved making books from the blog posts that I have written. I really enjoy going back and reading details about the past four years, many detail that I have forgotten already. I love that other stories from my childhood have been recorded as well. Gabby's generosity has made it possible to put it all into books. To have these stories and records in one place and in a form I am proud of is a simple joy.

I was thinking about a class I was in recently, they were teaching to write a life story. One of the things the teach said was that the longer you wait to get started the more fuzzy details will be. I guess this is both a warning and a plea for help. As I write things specifically for my life story, if I remember things incorrectly, please feel free to let me know so I can make it right.

Our Young Women's camp director made a book for each of us to write down our current and past history. She wrote down the questions and all we had to do was write in the answers. I was really surprised about how much I could remember about my past, but also what I have forgotten. I am really trying to keep up with my blog and book and I add in some of my past for the kids. It is so fun to be able to create my own scrapbooks & journals. Glad you are doing it too.

I am SERIOUSLY considering doing this! I love the idea of having a book(s) with all the posts...I too forget a lot of what I have written.
