Almost Finished!

“Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” Rom. 12:15

Rejoice with me! Three month ago, I announced that I was taking a break from blogging in order to concentrate on a family project, the compiling of memories, stories, photos and recollections of my 88-year-old mother.

While the project is not completed, my task is pretty much done. Just this evening, I received, via email, a .pdf proof copy of the book from my son. My son works for a printer/publisher in Tennessee, and he undertook laying out my text and photos for the book. Scrolling through the .pdf my son sent, I was exhilarated to see what I’ve been working on for several years starting to take final form. I’m telling you, my week is made, and it’s only Monday!

After a final read-through and proof, we are going to be able to go to press this month, and Recollections Of A Storyteller will be in the hands of my mom and my brothers and sister.

    Very glad for you and all your family that you have finished that (if anything like that is ever really finished).

    I have recorded sessions with my late mother and my father-in-law. I wish I had more from each.

    But here’s a very important reminder: you should get YOURSELVES, your memories and stories, recorded. Not necessarily a voice recording, though those are invaluable for the living tone of voice qualities – any form will do. You may not think about them a lot, but I guarantee that your family will really appreciate those in the future. Don’t delay – memories are fragile and the future is always uncertain. Do it now! 🙂
