Hunting Stories

So, here is a little heads-up.  I've been doing a little family research and looking at old pictures.  I absolutely love looking back and seeing snapshots in time.  Things that may have seemed inconsequential at the time can mean everything to your kids and grandkids while they are trying to piece together the story of your life.  Maybe this blog can serve as something of a history for later.  I will do all of the sitting and story-telling I can with the kids, but either through loss of memory (me) or lack of interest at a certain age (the kids), I'm sure a lot of it will be lost.  So, on occasion, I'm going to write a story about what I thought was an interesting time.  I have quite a few pictures and will do my best to dig them out and pair them with some of the stories  I hope these yarns are as interesting as I remember them to have been.

I'm finding that as I construct my first story, it is quite a long one.  I am trying to make it as interesting as possible.  I'm sure my followers will be doing some skimming on some of these.  :)

  1. dear sweet friend - i find nothing more interesting than when one of my blog friends shares their stories and histories. if you are on my blogroll and daily read list - then i already think that you are awesome! being able to learn about your life and how you grew up and what shaped you - that is the icing on the cake! i think i speak for a lot of people when i say that i can't wait for your stories - please bring them on buddy!

    1. Awww, thanks so much, kymber. You are just the sweetest person ever. Stephen really gave me the idea with his stories for Little Bit. It's a fantastic idea and I was going through some old family pictures and enjoying them so much, but there just wasn't a story where I wanted there to be one. My dad will occasionally tell a random story and I just love to hear them. I hope mine are enjoyable and that my kids will be able to enjoy them some day.

  2. Awesome. Some of the stories I love the best now are the ones that were the WORST when they happened.

    1. I hear you. They are the "we'll cry about it now and laugh about it later" type of stories.

  3. Any story is a good story. If told with heart. That's my thought on it.
