Maria Bayote Maria Bayote that’s awesome!!! Do you have any plans to publish it, or are you planning to just keep it as a memoir for you (and/or your family)?
Just for me, so when the time comes if and when I have no more memory of the past I will have something to remind me how it felt when I first held my son; how it pained me when my first marriage collapsed, or when my mother died. Stuff like that. :)

Please do it!! Years ago my mom bought all of my grandparents these Thomas Kinkade Grandparents memories to their Grandchild books. They were full of really great prompts and pretty pictures; but none were actually finished. My one Grandma ended up buying more for all of us. Something is better than nothing; but still its sad to know it could have been completed before they got too old.

Every year on my kid’s birthday eve I video interview them. I ask all kinds of questions about their favorite things, what they want to be when they grow up, what makes them excited about the next age they are going to be. Its really fun and they look forward to it. But man looking back is sooo sweet for me!!

Thank you. yes I will try. Been trying for the past several years, though. Used to write poetry a lot, too. But there came a time when I just suddenly.....stopped.
