How often have you said that? I can clearly remember the day Mum took my brother and I to see Father Christmas in Lewis’s department store in Manchester. It seems incredible to me that nearly seventy years have passed since then.
Isn’t that the way of it, though? Memories can connect us in the blink of an eye to times, places and people long since gone, but who for us are all still part of our lives. To our grandchildren, however, it’s just history. Of course, we know that each generation influences the next. In a way, our experiences also shape our grandchildren’s lives too. Surely this is why it’s important to leave them the story of our life and the times in which we have lived. They may not feel this is relevant to their lives right now but I can guarantee that as they grow older and have their own children, they will become curious about the people who came before.
If you feel you would like to start writing your own life story but aren’t sure where to begin, our Life Story package will guide you step by step through the process, until finally, you receive a beautiful book for you and your family to treasure and then to pass on to future generations.
