Family History TuesdayZ | Looking Forward

Journaling Prompt: 
What are you looking forward to the most?

My Personal Journaling:
I really feel like having something to look forward to is important in life - at least it is for me. Being able to plan and dream a bit and just have something to keep me going is really important.

Right now the thing I am looking forward to the most is actually not set in stone - but we are hoping to visit Disneyland in December again and this time we are hoping to take my brother and his family with us. I really really hope it happens! I love spending time with Cody, Becki and Mallory. They are truly more than just siblings/niece to me - they are some of my best friends and I want to share the magic that is Disneyland with them! I hope it happens!

Journal CardZ for this Week
6x4 and 4x3 Cards - Squared & Rounded Corners


Each Tuesday, I am going to be offering prompts or ideas. If you don't write in your journal regularly - I am going to encourage you to write just ONCE A WEEK and answer the question/idea that I give on Tuesdays. These ideas hopefully will spark a memory and you will be able to capture that in what you write/record so that it can be left for your children/grandchildren/family/friends. Give as much detail as you can when answering.

Will you do this for me? Will you do this for your families? You can write it down in a journal, you can type it up on a computer or journaling software, you can take a recorder and talk, you can videotape your answers, you can even scrap a page with the journaling. It doesn't matter how you do this - it's just important that you do it. The memories, the dates, the information is the only real thing we can leave to our families when we are gone.

New for 2015! Journal CardZ. A very popular trend right now is Pocket Scrapbooking. Part of pocket scrapbooking is journaling cards. So to help you scrap my weekly Journal Prompts, I am offering up 4x6 and 3x4 cards for your use every week! These cards are great to use digitally or you can even print them out!

If I come up with other family history ideas - I will be sure to share it here too - and if you want to share with me your ideas - that would be wonderful and I'd be glad to share them here too. Just comment here or email me at dedesmith32@gmail.com.

I know this is long after your post but at the time of your post I would have been looking forward to summer and weather nice enough to get my then 4-month-old outside for longer than a few minutes at a time.

I really love your weekly journaling ideas. Thank you. These cards are amazing!
