My 63 years of age have taught me that life moves fast! Moments come and go in a flash and so often we are so consumed with what just happened, or, what will happen, that we don’t experience the now. After the fact, we reflect in earnest trying to retrieve memories and they are packed away, lost in the abyss. Writing is a way of keeping the details at the forefront.
Parents and grandparents, it may seem like everyone are too busy to journal the current family Christmas preparation and events, however, I assure you taking the time to scribe events will bring joy to the clan when there is time to reflect. Parents, if you don’t presently keep a daily journal then I suggest you might consider keeping a holiday journal. Grandparents, you may have more time than many of the family members, as such a role you might like to take on is that of family holiday memory keeper. In years to come, I guarantee that it will be appreciated. Here is a great gift idea for those who need support and an excuse to tell their story.
