Journaling - The Write Stuff For You?

Did you write today? Are your pages showing fireworks in words or in drawings? Did you talk about what this holiday meant to you as a child?

When I worked in the law enforcement field, I worked every holiday. Since I had no kids, I wanted to let those who did, share it with their families. One 4th of July, as I got off shift at 9pm, I sat on the trunk of my car in the parking lot of the facility. Turning to my left, I could see a fireworks show going off over the harbor. And then, turning to my right, there was another display set off at the university football field. Quite a celebration.

Let's share.

@gingerw Hi Ginger,

Thanks for the reminder that holidays are great times to journal and write. Holidays, even the 4th of July, with its fireworks and gaiety can be times of remembrance of times past, people who are no longer with us, and the general uncertainty of the world where we reside today. For some of us who grew up with alcoholism or other addictions, this holiday was just like the others. The unfortunate time to drink too much and become abusive.

This is also a time when we can remember better days in the past where we had more energy, youth, and a more positive spirit. Losses seem to be profound on a holiday.

Well, it is time to stop posting and start writing. What about the rest of you? What will you be writing about today?
