Memories stirred when cleaning out the computer documents.


A couple of days ago I spent nearly a whole morning working on tidying up documents on my computer.  I had been looking for a particular document on the computer and realised that I had a lot of “stuff” on the computer that I no longer needed.  I guess it was a bit like cleaning out a filing cabinet.

I did get rid of a great number of documents but while doing that I discovered documents that I had forgotten about.  One folderr of many documents is my mother’s book of memories.  When my mum died I scanned the whole book,105 pages, so that each member of the family would have a copy of what my mum had written.  The scanned pages were put on a CD.  I knew I had the scanned document on the computer but it was a while since I last looked at it.

What lovely memories it brought back.

Just the first page starts you on the journey of her memories.

Although I don’t have the physical copy of the book I can still read it when ever I want to and it is here for my children and grandchildren when they want to look at it.

    I know 105 pages are a lot but you may want to print them out and place in a binder. It would be one more way to preserve this book. Also I noticed that it is in cursive and you may want to make a print edition. Just some thoughts. I wish I had something like that from my parents or grandparents.

      Thank you for your suggestions. Those are good ideas to print out a copy or to type up the journal. I think I will type it up so it is a little easier to read.

      I think I am lucky that my mum kept such a journal.
