"When you can't say something nice, type it in to your computer and let Siri say it for you." A Throwback Thursday Post
One of the things I LOVE
about journaling with photographs is being able to go back and enjoy memories.
Somehow having a photo to look at with a caption describing what was going on reminds me that the ordinary days really are worth remembering.
I used to blog a lot about just the ordinary days. Then Facebook came along those blogposts turned into status updates. That's okay, but I miss the stories.
If it's alright with you (even if it's not), I think I might take some space here on my newer home of the world-wide-web and pull out some story snapshots from my old web-home.
As I look back at the memories, the ordinary really does seem extraordinary. I'm glad I took the time to record the stories of our every-days.
This Thursday Throwback is called "WHEN YOU CAN'T SAY SOMETHING NICE" type it into your computer and let Siri say it for you."
(until I figure out a better way to copy the stories here, you can just click the link to read the original.)
How about you? Do you make Throwback Thursday posts on social media or love it when Facebook reminds you about "this date in your history?" Tell me more.
If you are following along on my Facebook page, you'll see these writing prompts that are focused on random thoughts of thankfulness and gratitude.
Pick up your journals and use these prompts as idea starters for the month.
And I'd LOVE to hear your responses! Feel free to leave a comment here on on the Facebook page.
It's like TWO entire days past halloween.
On the DAY AFTER halloween Brian and I went to Walmart to buy some halloween candy that would be on clearance. Since, you know, it's the DAY AFTER halloween.
Guess what. An entire aisle of shelves, that was completely full of halloween candy just THE DAY BEFORE, was cleared out and condensed into 3 shopping carts in the front of the store.
And my beloved candy aisle was filled with Christmas candy.
As annoying as this was, because hello CANDY on CLEARANCE, I do kind of love it.
I love all things Christmas. The music, the lights, the trees, the celebration, the Hallmark movies, the reason.
But I don't want to just skip over Thanksgiving to get there.
One way I do this is by taking some time to focus on things I am grateful for.
Wanna join me? Feel free to pop in here or on my Facebook page for some writing prompts that focus on everyday joys and random thoughts of thankfulness.
I'd love to read your responses in the comments.
Welcome to a page of my journal....a place where I will randomly post stories that document my life, and some tips for helping you to document yours.
