My neighbor told me to write a journal for the sake of my family. His wife just passed away about three weeks ago and he’s been reading and learning so much about her life. Private thoughts she had that he never knew. He tells me some stories here and there but I’m sure there’s so many memories he can’t even put into words.
I don’t know if I’ll ever journal consistently but I do enjoy writing my thoughts from time to time and maybe I’ll write them with more intention after our conversations.
