Attention ladies in my family: I have found something super cool that I want you to do.. Not just for me, but for your children and grandchildren and their children and so on. I got the idea from blogger Kira on Kissing the Joy as it Flies.
Here’s the link if you want to check it out: http://www.kissingthejoyasitflies.com/2011/04/notebook-for-grandma.html
I had bought a special Grandmother Remembers book for my Nana about ten or so years ago. It had some similar questions about her and her life. She has never filled it out, much to my dismay. And I have never found a book like it again. So I was thrilled to see this post. If I get real motivated, several of you (and you know who you are…) will be getting one to fill out
ASAP at your leisure. I think it would be cool to have some family history written down and even cooler to have it written in the historian’s handwriting! Maybe I’m a dork – yes, you are – but this excites me. I might even start one of my own. Wouldn’t it have been cool to have recollections of your great-grandparents’ experiences with life? Telling stories about your grandparents growing up? On them becoming grandparents when your parents were born?
Jeez, I’m getting old. And dorky. But it excites me.
