Yesterday's prompt: Did you have a favorite friend (or friends) to play with? What did you like to do with them? Try to be specific.
And today's prompt: Do you have any memories of your parents? Try to remember a happy time with each of them.
If you have been journaling along for the past few days, I hope you've enjoyed this mini memoir unit. There are several books you can find to guide you with writing memoirs. One very good one is called, "Writing Life Stories, How to Take Memories into Memoir" by Bill Roorbach.
You don't have to be a former president or movie star to want to preserve your memories. I love to read autobiographies -- and I dearly wish my grandparents or aunts and uncles had kept journals to pass down. I'd love to know more about all the little things in their lives -- what they wanted for their future, their hopes and dreams and challenges, and to hear about what their worlds were like when they were growing up. I wish I had started journaling sooner myself - but as George Eliot said, "It's never too late to be who you might have been."
