This past week I spent a lot of time working on my journals and updating my Etsy shop which can be found here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/inktoserenity . For a limited time, they are 10.00 with a flat shipping rate to celebrate the launch of my new shop and my new journals.
As I was posting them on my facebook to gather the support of my friends and family, my aunt commented that she had been journaling since 1998 and had 6 large books filled already! My other aunt on my mom’s side of my family also journals and has always supported and bought journals from me when I would have them for sale.
It took everything in me not to ask my Aunt to send me her journals so I could read them because I know they are filled with so much family history, wisdom, and overall richness!
Even when she comes to visit, she loves to share stories about our family history and she remembers dates, names, and people, like nobodies business! She is the families walking history book!
It brings me great joy to know that there are people in my family journaling where they have come from and where they are going. The importance of documenting our life stories is not just for our benefit, but for the benefit of others as well.
Journaling is one of the few places you can drop a seed and watch it grow in your life but also grow in another. One seed of wisdom has the power to be planted in numerous gardens.
