Memoir Writing Prompt: What did You Learn from Your Grandparent?

I had planned to write on a different prompt today until I saw this picture my cousin posted on Facebook of him and his grandson. I have to sadly admit to the fact that I still have no grandchildren (another topic); however, I had grandparents and this picture captures the epitome of what I think […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Remembering the Healthy Diet of Old

When I was a student in Home Economics class in the 60s, I learned the pyramid of healthy eating. Growing up on a farm, I knew we had a somewhat balanced diet. We consumed lots of homemade bread, ate fruit from the orchard and vegetables fresh from the garden. We ate beef, ham/pork and chicken […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: Which Teachers made an Impact on You?

I saw school as fun and exciting and couldn’t wait to get there every morning. Many special teachers crossed my path from elementary through high school. Mrs. Baynes, my seventh and eighth grade Latin and Ancient History teacher, intertwined the two subjects and made that entire historical time frame come alive—Julius Caesar, the Apian Way, […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: When did your educational light bulb go off?

It happened in first grade for me. For some reason, I have never forgotten the exact happening and the person responsible. At Mrs. Olsen’s directions, my classmates dutifully took one paper and handed the rest to the child who sat behind them. At least, that’s what they were supposed to do. The girl who sat […]

Memoir Writing Prompt: What childhood pets still bring fond memories for you?

Growing up on the farm in Pennsylvania led to our family adopting many stray dogs and cats over the years. It seemed that all strays who wandered on our property or were intentionally dropped off there quickly assumed our home to be their home. We just took it in stride. Mom never bought dog food, […]

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. […]
