Writing my memoir was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. Having taken a memoir workshop and an advanced memoir workshop studying creative writing and doing a lot of writing in journals that I will never share gave me something. The more I write in journals the better I feel. I had a poem in the newsletter this February 2020 the poem’s title is Poem for my grandfather. I always think of my grandpa. I miss him. I also love and care about my grandmother. I got her gifts last Christmas and for her birthday. December is actually my grandma’s birth month. I remember as a child she would wrap up little gifts at Christmastime and give me and my younger girl cousin gifts under our Christmas tree. I still give my grandma a gift and a birthday gift each year to let her know she is loved and appreciated too. I got my mom a really beautiful card for Mother’s day and we’re going to Costco to order a cheese pizza pie and I plan to get her a bouquet of roses too. I want my mom to feel special for mother’s day.
I shared my story every chance I got.
