|bKeeping a journal is such a great way to record and reflect on moments in your life. My mom kept a journal for me and it is one of the most treasured items I own. I absolutely treasure my family and little momentos that reflect our past. It is a book that provides little prompt questions, places for recipes, pictures, and personal notes. It is so wonderful. I have read it cover to cover, like the best collection of stories ever, because it is. |
The journal I have started for Goose is a handmade made and painted journal by an artist I found on Etsy.com. It just screamed at me. All those individual doors are so unique, just like every doorway or path we choose through life. I have a family tree started and have written down songs that my mom sang to me, that I now sing to her, as well as songs I sing her (like Irish folk songs).
I want to write down stroies from my childhood, recipes, funny stories featuring her as a baby, advice. . . I want this to be something for her to have forever, maybe even pass on to her children. Even if it just makes her smile once, if she thinks, " My mom really loves me" it will all be worth it.
