Found Journal

The other day I was cleaning out one of my junk drawers (I actually have several junk drawers in my bedroom closet – no lie!) and found a treasure. I found the journal that my mother had written for me. I had forgotten about it, so you could imagine my face when I saw it. Happy and sad but with a huge smile.

At the time I received the journal, at high school graduation, I thought it was nice gesture… But it didn’t mean as much to me as it does now, especially without my mom being alive. Going through the pages, reading stories about what I did, what type of personality I had, what my mother thought I would be good at in life. Mind blowing. And from what I’ve read, I’m pretty much still the same. Might be older, but your person is yours from the get-go.

I think what I like the most about the journal is that it’s written in my mother’s voice. I haven’t “heard” her voice in 10 years, and sometimes you forget how much your mother was in your corner.

Yes, you have your children and husband in your corner, but there is just that special something that you can only get from your mom.

My point to this story is that I think as mothers, we should do the same for our children or grandchildren. Go find a journal, start writing about your children, grandchildren, use photos, and any kind of memorabilia saved throughout the years.

Don’t worry about finishing the journal. Just get it going. I guarantee your children and their children will feel your love and warmth when they stumble upon it later on in their lives.

If you liked this little article, I would be grateful if you shared it with your friends.

  1. What i do not understood is if truth be told how you are no longer actually much more smartly-preferred than you may be now. You are very intelligent. You already know thus significantly in relation to this matter, made me for my part consider it from a lot of numerous angles. Its like women and men are not involved except it is one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your individual stuffs excellent. All the time maintain it up!

  2. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting
    videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  3. Great work! That is the kind of info that should be shared
    across the net. Disgrace on Google for now not positioning this publish upper!
