Journals...

So the other day at church for enrichment night we had a dinner and some speakers on journals.. and i was thinking... about how my family reas our great great great grandma's or grandpa's etc. and i was like {whats it going to be like when my great great great grandchildren read mine?}... wouldnt it be weird? for them to read my deep thoughts and see pictures of my through highschool and right now and just hear the ramblings of my brian? But then reading my relatives, its not weird for the one whos reading it.. its interesting to know that they have the same feelings that you have, or they enjoy the same foods etc... and how things were with out cars, or without huge skyscrappers and people rushing all day long. Sometimes i write in my journal things about me like when i was born, whos my bestfriend, fav music.. etc. so they know who i was and what i was like at that certian age.. i do it about once or twice every year hoping that they get a grasp as of who i am... and how im growing up. i've gone through 3 journals and im on my 4th... i recieved my first journal when i was 12, which i wasnt even thinking of having one at all in my life... but for me writing just the simple things down and then me now 7 years later go back and reading it.. its interesting funny, but interesting.. i think its good to use a journal.. all different kinds.. this lady who has younger kids.. she has one strictly towards the funy things her children have said. another journal that she keeps is one for each kid until they are old enough to write in it themselves.. i think its really good to do that and i would like to do that when i have children, so we both dont forget what is what and how they were n stuff... well ive made you suffer long enough :) adios!! lol
