I've been a journal keeper since I was about 12. I'd like to challenge myself to be a log keeper. Maybe I'll make that challenge on my birthday. My kids have been reading my journal for about 3 years now. I don't give them the older ones because who knows what I wrote before I was being mindful of the audience.
So they read my journal and it's a great way for me to create out story in the retelling of what I thought was important. I hope they will keep a journal someday, knowing I will read it. And I hope they will understand that privacy is a lie. Happy times.
