I have spent the last month or so typing up some of my Grandmother's journals.  I have loved living her life with her through her words.  I just finished a journal that she kept while traveling all over Europe: Greece, Italy, Pompeii (wherever Pompeii is), Germany, Scotland, England, France.  They spent about 30 days on this tour..WOW!! During the hours and hours of typing I have been overwhelmed with the thoughts that I need to be better at record keeping and journaling.  Someday I may have a grand-daughter reading through my words and hopefully they will be words of encouragement and inspiration that my Grandma Lucille's words have been for me.  I have to remind myself that every entry does not need to be elaborate and full of detail.  One entry of my grandmother's was :

"I went shopping & bought me a new dress at Ross's.  Also hose & groceries" - Wednesday May 13, 1987

hahaha, I love it!  So I am off today to buy a small pocket calendar so I can start my journaling (which is what my Grandma used), and I truly want to record my journal entries each week here on my blog, because every time I open up my blog my heart swells with love and pride.  I love seeing everything in the past that has happened to my family :)

It's a great way to journal. It's what I try to do to. It goes up and down but is so worth it.
