Everyone has stories to tell. You may have had experiences common to many, but yours are very personal and in your own perspective. What may be “near history” now will someday be distant history, unfamiliar to those of younger generations. If the children are not interested now, they may be later as they age and create their own histories, and who knows what grandchild may be enthralled. Your stories are an everlasting gift to your family of who you are – a three-dimensional person who lived, loved, lost, learned, and created a legacy through a specific era of history. If you are interested in capturing your own stories of those of a parent or grandparent, don’t wait any longer. Each day is precious.
