Birthdays Trigger Many Memories
My oldest daughter just had her birthday. As I thought about the day she was born a lot of memories came back to me. This would be a good time to record things that happened on the day she was born. We went to see fireworks on the Fourth of July one week after she was born. There was a lightning storm competing with the fireworks. I wasn't sure which was prettier. Memories like this are things my daughter would never know if I didn't tell her about them. Other birthday memories such as a party when you were older or a special gift or a surprise are all good things to record.
