Telling Our Stories

We each have a story to tell. And the obligation to tell it. If we don't tell our stories, no one else will. It's never too late to start. Write about your growing-up years. About your school memories, first job, first love, and people who made a difference in your life. Tell about where you lived when you were ten years old, your special toy (mine was a home-made Teddy bear), your favorite aunt (assuming you had one).

If writing is not your thing, tape record your stories. Give the stories to your children and grandchildren for Christmas presents. They will be forever grateful to you.

The Old Timer Says: "Hey, sit down and rest for a minute, I've got a story to tell you."
