I would really like to write a personal history for my children and grandchildren but it seems overwhelming. How do I begin and what should I include? I often find myself saying “I remember when ……” and sharing a memory , so I decided to begin writing short “I remember when” memories. Now whenever I find myself saying something like , “I remember a Christmas when…” or “I remember a birthday when…” , I jot it down. I don’t worry about the order right now, I can organized them later. But for me it’s a start. My first entry was: I remember when Logan was six and spent the night with me. In the morning he came into my room and told me he thought there was a bear in my house. Guess what, it was me snoring. I knew I snored but I didn’t realize it sounded like a bear. I hope I haven’t traumatized him!
