Today I was going through and cleaning out 210 emails (yikes!) that have been waiting for me the last week. I stumbled upon a December newsletter from Tricia Goyer (gotta love her!) and was inspired to take what she has done and use it in my own life. Each month for 2010, she took 2-4 events that happened in her life and listed them. Whether it was releasing a new book or adopting a baby, Tricia was impacted by them all.
I think it is so important as mother's to note events in our own lives. I am asked from Mom's every where I speak, what is the one piece of advice I can give them? I always say, keep a journal. Write down accomplishments your child does, their first words, how being a mom makes you feel in that moment. I guarantee you it will be worth the time and effort.
I give this advice because I didn't do it and wish I did. Something that I can go back to and remember all that God has done for me, as a mother. I encourage you to start!
Better late than never. I'll be starting in January 2011.
How about you? Do you journal events in your life?
