After thinking about my granny and grandmother who have both passed away, I realized I wish I had done a few things differently. All of our conversations seemed to be about my family and our daily lives. I cherish and value the moments and conversations we had together, I just wish I had been more curious and dug a little deeper with questions about them.
What was their childhood like? What experiences shaped them along the way? What are they most proud of?
I created the guided keepsake journal "The Making of a Grandparent" (Click here to view grandparent journal) as a tool for others to learn about their grandparents, and strengthen their relationships. Through guided questions and prompts, this journal honours your grandparents journey and insights so that many generations can get to know them as well.
Since telling friends about this journal, I have heard such incredible stories about their own grandparents life experiences. This journal will ensure that your grandparents stories and spirit live on, which is what we all wish to happen.
Your grandparents have loved you your whole life, giving their legacy a place to live on is the greatest gift you could give them.
