Journal of LOVE

Well Sunday after church my Grandmother told me she had something for me, so we walked to there car and she handed me this old notebook. I said “Grandmother, what is this?”….she said “a journal from me to you”.

She wrote everything in that little book, she wrote about the first time she saw me in the nursery and how she couldn’t stop staring at me, she wrote about how me and my daddy would come over and swing and play kickball and how I always would go straight to the doll house in my room. She wrote about one time (I forget the year it said and the age I was) but I was talking to her on the phone and couldn’t figure out how she could hear me though the little holes in the phone, and wondered if I could see her through those holes too. You know on my 9th birthday after I blew out the candles and made a wish, I told them I wished I would be 25….BOY has that time flew by. This Thursday will be exactly 4 months till that day, wow…I am almost 25!!! She wrote about so many things, she wrote about the one time I broke on of my daddy’s plants and I was scared to tell him so I just stuck it in the mud (I guess hoping it would grow back, haha!!) She wrote about little boys that I told her I liked (Boys I FORGOT all about!!!) This book was so interesting, and one I will cherish for all the years to come. She started this journal on the day I was born….and ended it last Sunday. This journal brought back soooooo many good memories; there was a few sad times, like when her mother died…but mostly all wonderful memories, and alot of inspirational quotes and scriptures!!!!

I would have never thought about creating a book like this for a child or grandchild, but I think it’s a great idea. I’ve already saved all of my “journal notes" TO pregnancy because I want to give that to my child one day and let them know just how much they were wanted and loved before they were even created, but now I think I will keep a journal of there life to give them when they are older, just as my Grandmother did. "A journal of LOVE"
