Have you ever met someone who just knows how to tell a story? It might be something from their childhood or something that happened yesterday, but they know how to make it come alive.
I love to listen to someone like that tell their stories. My grandparents were story tellers, especially my grandmother. When I was a child I spent hours listening to her talk about her childhood, the depression, the war, going to school, boyfriends, etc… Her stories captivated me and made her life seem so full of color and adventure.
We all have stories to tell, some more exciting than others. I think about telling my future grandchildren stories and I wonder if they’ll be as good as the ones my grandmother told. Will my life feel as colorful and interesting or will they be bored with “grandma’s stories”.
That inspires me to live life, really live, so that I have something really awesome to talk about when the time comes!!
