      Priceless!

      Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

      My mother-in-law loves books, genealogy and history. She very proud of her family and loves to share stories. When she passes away, I know I'll never be able to recall all of the stories she has to share with my kids. This book is a great prompt for her to write down her life story and share it with her grand kids and their kids and so on. It's priceless. I wish my grandparents would have left me something like this.

          I liked how organized all of the different sections were. This made it easier for my grandparents to fill out. They already have a hard time remembering things as it is.

          After going through my grandparents' house after they died, I realized what a great keepsake this journal will be some day after I am gone. Plus, it allowed me to reflect on my life so far - a very cathartic experience.

                This was bought as a 80th birthday gift by my children for my mom. She was very excited to receive it as she had wanted to write things down but was having trouble getting started. The book is organized in a way that can help stimulate the mind, bringing back great memories that can be recorded for generations. My children are excited to help Grandma fill the book out.
