The other night Stewart pulled out his journal he started in college. He only had four or five entries in it, and started reading me what he wrote. His first entry he basically wrote how he made a goal to write in his journal everyday. His next entry wasn't till three days later (not bad) and he just talked about his day and a few thoughts he had. A few weeks later (smile), was about the time we started dating. He read me what he wrote about how he felt about me, and it made me cry. His next entry he wrote not long after we were married. (Again, made me cry), but also made me remember that "so in love" feeling I had on that special day.

It was a sweet moment when Stewart shared his journal with me, but it also made me realize how bad I am about journaling. I love how just reading about what I was feeling at a specific point in time can make me go back to that exact memory. Not only do I want to remember these sweet times in life, but I also want to be able to share them with my kids someday. So- here is my ode to be better at journaling. Hopefully it works!

  1. Hey Juniel-
    That is one thing that I have to pat myself on the back for!!! I wrote in my journal almost everyday when Zeb and I were dating and I LOVE IT!!!! It really is a treasure to me! I love reading it when I have a bad day or just need a little pick me up to "remember" the good ole' days! But I have not wrote in my journal in a L.O.N.G. time and at the beginning of the year I started writing again, but I have already started slacking again! So when I read your post I thought I need to jump back on the party wagon :)!!!! Anyways, just wanted to let you know that I am going to journal too and we will have to check up on each other, DEAL??? OKAY!!!
