Let’s Write it Down!! (31 days ToC)


It all started a few months after my mother died.  I would find myself in the kitchen working on a recipe, trying to think of the flavors and quantities I would need in order to make it taste just like mom made.  Of course, it would never quite taste the same way.  Those were the days, I felt the absence of my mom very strong.  I wished that my mother had written something down. There are things that I never learned how to make, that I can only guess about now.

I often wish that my mother or grandmother had written something down that I could read when I need some wisdom or a chuckle or just the recipe for a really good bowl of soup. That is why I think it is so important to record things now, life can change in the blink of an eye. Recording your life now, your memories, your hopes and dreams for the future- all of these things are important to note.

That is what the next 31 days will be about.  I will write down some of the things that I have wanted/been meaning to.  By November 1, I hope to have a collection I can pass on. Perhaps one day you will start 31 days of your own MEaning!

Hi everybody, it’s my first  shot at a 31 days series and I’m feeling a little anxious. My topic is called Write it Down! It’s
about documenting some of the things I always say I would like to. In addition to these things I would also like to document things that I just dont want/should not forget.  Many of us at one time or another have said – I should probably write that down.  Im using these 31 days to do just that.  Time to write down that fantastic recipe, that excellent bit of money managing advice, that crazy thing that happened at school that one time all those years ago,  and some of the lessons that I have been gifted along the way. By the end I hope to have a collection of tips, tricks, recommendations, reflections, and recipes I can pass on to a grandchild perhaps.  Eh one day.
