A new week is upon us!

Last week I lamented the quickness of time and how it's passing seems faster and faster. Many of you expressed the same feeling. A fellow reader, Rick, shared the following article with me:

It's a great read about the events of life and how they affect our memories. This all coincided with my wife letting me read her journals from when she was a young girl. We discovered that we had many similar outlooks on young childish life. It was a truly great experience. As a result, we realized that we needed to start journaling again. So this week, I bought my wife and me new journals. We decided that we would also encourage our two children to journal, and bought them journals as well. Hopefully, when they reach my age they'll be able to look back through their journals, and while many years will have passed. The memories they write about won't seem so distant.

Thank you, everyone, for the words you shared. I hope you enjoy this week's tips.
