Story of My Life for Meaning In Life

Why Write the story of your life?

Here are some of my reasons.


My Mom was supposed to have written out the story of her life, said my brother a few years after Mom passed away. Nowhere was it to be found. She had passed away in 1997.

Just this year Mom’s younger sister happened to mention that she had a story my Mom had written. My Aunt immediately e-mailed it to me, and I could not wait to read it.

It was five single-spaced typewritten pages of the most interesting bits of Mom’s life that I never could have imagined.

I am so grateful that this bit of history was saved for our family.

It’s Friday. Again.

As the weeks go by in a flash, I wonder how many more weeks I have to get the words down on paper for my kids and grandkids.

They are so precious to me and they are so busy with their lives. I am far away, but if I was closer, I wonder if they would have much time to spend with me…

… So on I write. When the story is done, they will get to know me, even if I’m still this far away.
