Most of us own journals, a lot of them! The majority of them remain empty and forgotten. Some have a few pages full, but that is about it. Our days seem so mundane and unremarkable that after a short while we are pretty sure that no one would ever be interested in what we did and how we did it. Yet sometimes we read a forgotten page and gasp, and laugh … Suddenly we remember the times when we believed that being a super mom and a super professional is very easy to achieve.
I do not want to offer you another journal to be forgotten in a dusty cupboard. I want you to write your story as a mother and a parent. Your happiness and sadness, frustrations and triumphs can be a source of strength for those that come behind, regardless how talented of a writer you are.
My own mother is battling advanced cancer at the moment and I have to face the possibility of a life without her. She never spoke much or told us a story. She seemed happy to stay in silence and care for us without any consideration for her own comfort at any point.
I wish she had written her story… Sometimes its easier to write than to say things. I know that she was an orphan.” I hate my memories, there was nothing but struggle there…” she would say when I pressed her sometimes to tell me about herself. Now when my own children are almost grown up I would have loved to know how it was to be a parent when you do not know what parent is yourself. I would have loved to know how she coped with losing a child, with loneliness and sickness.
We do not have to leave our children orphans after we are gone, because at any stage in our lives we need our parents. We need the perspective, the solution and the connection with those who have done it before us.
Fill the empty book and pass it on.

The fist images in the journal show fashion styles and scenes from the early 1800’s, and with each page we move ahead in time with the last page depicting styles from 1898.
