This post is part of a weekly series of ‘link-up’ Posts which reflect on life’s journey, old memories and family stories (see below for more info).
Wow, I’m so glad I decided to sort out my home office this week. It provided me with a perfect theme for this week’s nostalgia Linky, and also made me cry the sweetest, most pleasurable tears I’ve shed for a long, long time.
This is why.
I received this letter from my Dad shortly after the birth of my youngest son. My Mum had passed away a few months beforehand and it was a very emotional time for all of us.
I wonder how many of us really know anything about the occasion of our own birth? I count myself very lucky indeed to have my dad’s account of that moment in his, and my life. There is little doubt that I shall be capturing my own memories of the births of my children as part of their legacy. How about you?
Share the story of the day you were brought into the world. We’d love to see them all in this week’s Link Up – either write a blog post (the Linky will stay open for some time yet, so no need to rush), or just share your memories with us in the comments if you prefer – you don’t have to have a Blog to play! Everyone welcome here. Consider it therapy. But do tell your friends!
