This is the perfect gift for my friend who is a cancer survivor. She was diagnosed 5 years ago with STAGE 4 cancer. She told me that she kept thinking about how much she would do if she could only live to 45. This gift is part of her 45th birthday gift & also celebrates her 5th year of survival.

My Life- So Far...Perfect!

The product was fine. The problem I had is the company charged me shipping despite entering a discount code. That was reflected before I paid for it. I contacted them to get it reversed and they told me that they don't give free shipping. I was ready to order more gifts from them but this put a sour taste in my mouth.

Future heirloom

By

Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

I was searching for gifts for my parents and when I saw this book I thought it would be a beautiful way to preserve memories to pass down to future generations. I bought them each one and thought it would be wonderful for them to do together, reliving special memories and learning new things about each other. I look forward to reading them one day.

Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

Bought this for my 87 year-old mother. She lives in a nice Assisted Living four states away; we do not get to visit her as often as we'd like, but speak over the phone each day. As she progresses through this book, we will discuss and hopefully enjoy the journey and process together - as will my children.

Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

My mother is such a unique person and deserving of a unique gift. To humble to think she should leave behind her story, I forced her to do so with this book. While reminding her how important she is to the whole family and generations to come !!

          It was so hard to find a gift for my granddaughter without buying clothing or make-up. What a great way to encourage her to think, to write, and to appreciate the things that she has in life.
