Family Friday's - Great Family Heirloom


I decided to use my Mother's Day gift for Family Friday's because it is awesome and Every family should have one!!!!
My husband got me from the boys "A Story Of A Lifetime" leather bound Journal for personal memoirs.

Anyway I am not into writing in journals or anything so at first I was scared, but then I opened it up! Oh my goodness it is AWESOME!! It starts out asking questions about your parents, parents and grandparents, it goes into questions of your birth, childhood, gradeschool, teenage years, highschool.

It then goes into college, military, marraige, children questions. It continues on and on through the golden years and on and on. The questions they ask are interesting and the way the questions are asked require detailed interesting answers!!!
Now the card that came with the book was touching, or scary, I still can not determine which. It will be glued to the inside of the front cover as it should be. Here is what the card said.

" There's a special place in heaven for the mother of 2 boys. But dont forget to pass along all you've learned to those of us left behind. We LOVE you forever and always!
Guy & Cory"

I do not know if they are trying to tell me something (like they want me gone). Or that they really want to know everything about my life. Anyway with that said I think it is an amazing gift. An heirloom, something I can pass down to my children or grandchildren one day so that they may know about my life, my grandparents, my parents, and their childhoods!!!! How awesome is that. My husband got this at Redenvelope.com I am sure their are other versions but I love this one!

Anyway I had to share because I think that somewhere in every family someone should have something like this for newer generations to be able to read and cherish!!!

Come join me in Family Fridays.. Write about something You and your family have done together over the past week or plan on doing, whether it be watching a family friendly movie, a fabulous family recipe, a fun family recipe your child(ren) helped with, a fantastic family game, products your family thinks are far out, or just simply taking a family trip out and about. Whatever it may be we would love to hear about it!
