I love today’s WaterCooler post by fellow WordServer Joanne Kraft. She discusses her practice of keeping a journal, and I particularly appreciate her tips on maintaining memorable notes for her children.
If penning regularly overwhelms you, try what another friend does: A sentence a day. That’s it. Just one short sentence that sums up the lesson of the day for your family. Something funny, poignant, or challenging – just jot down the one thing you gained most from that particular day. You can even write it on your daily calendar for quick access wherever you may be.
Find more great ideas on Joanne’s post: My Greatest Nonfiction Tool, and check out her refreshing nonfiction book Just Too Busy: Taking Your Family on a Radical Sabbatical.
I hope you enjoy a fabulous Thanksgiving, with tons of time unplugged, steeped in peace, and surrounded by those you love most in this world.
