My mom kept a journal for several years. Starting when her 2nd child was young and ending just months before she died (with several large gaps in between at times).
She never threw the old journals away. My brother and i decided that if she kept them for that long there must of have been a reason for it. We decided to read them (keep your opinions to yourself. i've heard it all). Honestly, i'm very glad i did. I got to know my mom in a way that i wished i could have known her when she was alive. And i got to really realize how much i really was my mothers daughter.
I have started a journal and hope that i can keep one going for a long time. And i will leave a note in my will about those who feel the desire to read them most certainly may.
Do you keep a journal? If you do, what do you plan on doing with it once it is full, or after your time is finished?
