Memoir Writing Prompt: How did You Celebrate Presidents’ Day?

When I was a child in the 50s and 60s, we celebrated Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12th and George Washington’s birthday on February 22nd. Starting in first grade, we studied these two great leaders in depth and what they did for America. Both days were seen as holidays, but we still went to school. […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: How did you celebrate Valentine’s Day as a child?

To make the prettiest valentine box ever seemed to be my goal every year in grade school. Using colored tissue paper, construction paper, and, sometimes, newspaper gave me so much material for my creative mind. I folded red construction paper and cut out hearts to paste on the box. However, it never failed that by […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: National Send a Card to a Friend Day

My Mom sent cards of greeting all the time: get well, sympathy, birthday, anniversary, and just thinking of you. Now, almost 97 years old, Mom still sends greeting cards and loves receiving them in return. She has brought so much joy to so many people over the years. Many of my relatives wrote letters and […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What memories does Super Bowl hold for you?

Super Bowl LII has come and gone. And what a game it was! Even I was cheering for the Eagles. As I was growing up, football was not an item in our home. When I reached high school, football became a social event. My parents left me off at the school with $1.00 and a […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What about forgiveness?

“To err is human; to forgive divine” Alexander Pope. Wednesday, I asked you to write about a mistake you may have made in life and what you learned from that time. Today, let’s look at the last part of that quote—“to forgive divine.” For some, forgiveness is easy. Or at least they say they forgive. […]

Words of Wisdom from a Very Special Friend

I met Jean Tate Howard just as she turned a very young 84 years. She was one of my first Legacy writing students. She wrote and spoke much wisdom into my life and into the lives of the other students in my class. The ladies from that first class would not stop writing and after […]

What Advice Would You Give?

A dear friend and father of three children, who I had the privilege to teach, passed away yesterday morning. What a shock! It was quick and sudden. With no time to prepare for the sudden loss, the family and community will need to take time to process the fact that Mike’s jolly smile will never be […]

Who’s Your Hero? Happy Birthday, My sister–My Friend!

Today is my sister’s birthday. It’s a big one–a milestone. It’s more than 60 but less than 80—Pros and cons there. But it doesn’t matter that the calendar shows an advanced year, she’s still my precious protector and mentor. Oh, she sees my faults, but she doesn’t care. She chooses to overlook them and looks […]

Dates We Never Forget

Certain anniversaries we never forget. Sunday, October 5, 1982, Daddy died. And even though it has been 32 years, I remember that early morning, standing at his bedside at 3:00 a.m. and realizing he was gone. He fought a two-year battle with colon cancer but decided he would rather die than suffer the ravaging effects […]

Any Mismatched Problems in Your Legacy?

Strange how our senses can remind us of past events. The smell of hot apple pie brings back memories of Mom’s delectable offerings right out of the oven, the crust browned with sugar lightly sprinkled on top. Sometimes when I pass the bakery in the grocery store, my sense of smell takes me back to […]
