What kinds of stories should we tell in our families?
|Some of my husband's extended family looking at old photos and sharing stories at a family reunion last summer|
In Mr. Feiler's own words, "The bottom line: if you want a happier family, create, refine and retell the story of your family’s positive moments and your ability to bounce back from the difficult ones. That act alone may increase the odds that your family will thrive for many generations to come."
How lucky are we, as scrapbookers, that we are already preserving memories, and documenting these vital stories in our albums. What a gift to our families! The challenge is to remember to get them out and read them. That's where we'll see the maximum benefit from our efforts as story tellers. Now go gather your family, pull down one of your favorite albums, and let the story telling begin!
