Writing Your Story
The Art of Collecting Memories
It's been 7 years since my dad passed. And already 5 years since suddenly losing mom. It's hard to imagine and the time has gone so quickly. I miss them both SO much! And now - I wish I knew more about them! Looking through photos has me wondering about my grandparents too. Their lives were so different than mine.
Maybe you're like me and wish you'd asked the questions. Life changes so rapidly - clothing, home and furniture design, toys, how we celebrate holidays, and even parenting styles. How we grew up is so different than our parents and now our children.
Stats say that 50 years after someone has passed, there are very little memories left of them. That's so sad, but true when we think about it.
There are a lot of agencies that can help rebuild the family tree and help us learn about our heritage, but not necessarily help us to learn the stories.
What about today?
Do you want to document your stories as part of history? Look how much life has changed around us in the past 40 years! 60 years! Your stories matter!
Or do you want to leave a living legacy for your family?
Now is the time!
Join this writing class where we can recover the memories of
our growing up years.
It's going to be fun to reminisce about favorite toys and music,
extra-curricular activities and what your room looked like.
What car did you learn to drive? Your story matters!
