I just have to share with you a blessing I received this week. It was wonderful after all of the sadness that we’ve all experienced since last Friday.
Two years ago I taught one of my “Writing Your Story” classes at a local university. I blogged about the class on this post. Below are a few pages from mine.
This week I met with one of my students, Mary, who actually finished her story. And she gave me a copy!
Now this is a book!
I absolutely love all of the pictures on both the front and the back of this book.
Inside are 174 pages of stories and pictures – so priceless for her large family to cherish long after she’s gone, but also helpful for them to know her better while she’s here. What a gift she’s given her family.
However, she still has stories to tell and she’s talking about a cookbook with stories. That will be wonderful! I’m looking forward to reading that one too.
It was a lovely day. We had lunch at a local restaurant in her town and then spent time at her home eating some of her yummy cookies and talking about our families. What a gift she gave me that day – not just the lovely book but the opportunity to spend time with this interesting lady.
