Keeping a diary

A diary is a wonderful reminder of our lives and to share with generations to come.  I marvel at those who keep one.  Every year I make a resolution to do this and every year I manage about 10 entries.  Today I am cleaning out 3 years of emails (another project that always gets pushed aside).  As I'm reading them I realized that this is a beautiful diary of not only my life but of those I love. Weddings, babies, families, deaths, concerts, plays, everyday mundane tasks, jobs, volunteer work, accomplishments, politics,  hopes, dreams, heart aches - everything is there.  I have my diary.  I'll organize it into years and continue to "save" future emails.
