Today’s prompt is “Story”
Ready, Go …
My kids are all grown now and some of them are having kids of their own. When I saw today’s prompt I immediately thought of my youngest daughter (who shall remain nameless — well except for those of you who know her). Why does “story” make me thing of her? Well, she just happens to be very good at writing stories and I remember when I would review her writing when she was in homeschool. Oh my goodness! She had some of the funniest stuff on her papers. I would regularly look at her papers and other work later in the day and sometimes I would just laugh out loud, because although I should have expected it, she would always catch me off guard. I could probably write about several of those papers and share a funny story about each, but then again I only have 5 minutes here. I am thankful for today’s prompt from Lisa-Jo because it just made me smile, remember and look back at a time when life was a little more regulated and very, very busy. Each and every story in our life is a precious memory that we have in our heart. It is great to reminisce about it and share those memories with others.
I hope that as you go through life you remember to record a story every now and again — maybe you can use a journal like the one Lisa-Jo wrote about on this linky host site.
