Pretty much every Monday for more than a year I’ve been sharing a Memory Monday post here on my blog. Maybe you’ve read a few and wondered why I do it. Here are a few reasons why:
- I love Memory Monday because it takes me back to the memorable moments in my life. I find it relaxing to spend my Monday evening commute in silence focusing on a specific memory.
- I write them for my kids. It gives them a sense of my past. Several times they’ve read a Memory Monday post and said, “I never knew that,” or “you’ve never told us that story before.” It’s also a way for me to share with them stories about Great Grandparents that they never knew.
- I write them so my readers can get to know me better. My memories played a big part in making me who I am today.
- I write them to get others to think about their memories. Nothing makes me happier than knowing one of my memories spurred a recollection for someone else.
Those are just a few reasons why I’ve continued sharing a different memory every Monday. They’re not likely to stop anytime soon, either. I’ve got a long list ready to share! 🙂
