Not only is journaling a therapeutic endeavor but writing down a collection of stories about your childhood will make for a special family keepsake to pass down to your children, grandchildren, and will certainly be cherished by future generations. While you're at it, write down the stories told to you by your parents and grandparents. So many stories, so little time. Write them down before they are lost forever.
