I so enjoyed writing my 'Where I Am From' post that I decided to start a new meme with it. Memories are wonderful, and they are made up of so many different things that come together and leave an imprint in the mind. Sometimes they are as clear as if they happened yesterday, and sometimes they are just bits and fragments...a sound, a scent, a taste, a feeling. Some of my childhood memories will sound familiar to my kids and grandkids, but many of them will be things that they may never experience. I believe that taking the time to jot down some of these memories is a nice memoir to pass down to future generations. I'd love to have one written by each of my parents, my siblings, and my children!
It may sound like a big chore to write this, but to make it easy, someone has provided a template that you can follow. I used it as a guide for mine, but didn't follow it completely. This is your memoir, and you can write it your own way. I also added pictures to mine, which is also optional. No matter how you write it, I think that you will find the walk down memory lane as enjoyable as I did!??
