I'm here! The computer really has been calling my name to post the pictures from the past few months but I think the push was from the relief society activity tonight. It was on journaling. We had a bunch of GREAT ideas shown to us on how to keep journals that just made me think "ugh...where do I start!" Blogging was actually one of them and as we all know I am not that great at keeping up with my blog. But...besides the point. I have a journal and I think I have only written in it once...the day I was baptized. After tonight I realized it probably would be good for me to have something written down for my kids to read one day. On anything really. My daily struggles, my testimony, where I am at in life at this point in time. Really if I don't keep anything about myself for my kids, grandkids, greatgrandkids and so on....I will just disappear in a sense. I want to leave my stamp in the world ya know. One idea I thought was great was making a book with all your pictures from the year. And I know it sounds like a blog book but it's a little bit different. This could really be done in one day. It's kind of like Shutterfly where you can make a book and add captions or quotes and they have different backgrounds. The book that was shown tonight was pretty neat. Other ideas were keeping a journal for your kids so they get in the habit, which I thought was a great idea and will start doing with Julian and Payton. They can tell you about their day and maybe draw pictures in it. And they will love it because they will know it's theirs. There were so many other great things that I can't really think of but the important thing for me is to start doing and implementing this in my life. You all are probably good at journaling but I am not! So this is a new goal for me and I think it is a good one.
