Sharing Your Stories
Everybody has a story to tell and sharing those experiences with those you love can be helpful and loving. Writing your thoughts and feelings into stories is cathartic and illuminating. With all the changes we've experienced in our lifetime, we need to record and share this information especially with those who have not lived either in those times or had many of those experiences. This site can help you to realize that opportunity and in a short time you will have a collection of memories you can give to whomever you choose or keep for yourself.
