Memoirs-Leaving A Legacy
I have always wanted to leave a legacy behind for my children in my writings and share my hearts hopes and beliefs that I had for them one day and for my precious grandchildren and great grandchildren for that matter. That these beloved people in my life could open up the pages of a book made just for them complete with thoughts and dreams I had for each and every single one of them. That they could refer to a page on a certain topic and know just what mom or grandma (and great grandma) thought about that topic.
Imagine if you could, if you had lost your grandmother and wished to hear from her heart years later and to find this book laying around with dust on it. You wipe off the dust off the jacket and open it. Behold! Before you, page after page of grandma's most intimate thoughts and advice. Her heart is written on every page. She has even written about you! It is the most valuable possession you could ever own now that she is gone. You will treasure this book forever.
When I pass away they can look through this precious book and still feel I was there in spirit and could still hear my hearts thoughts. They could still have me around, even though I was called home to heaven.
And here is the surprise----I am doing this with my blog. I will be printing out the pages and inserting these into scrapbooks with pictures so my children (and theirs) will be blessed one day. Surely I will be adding more private things in their special books but I am glad that this blog (my heart and thoughts) will continue on to several generations in my family to bless them, encourage them and spur them on in the Lord.
