Family History Video Forethought

I received an email from a client this morning, a client from four years ago. He wrote, “My dad passed away Saturday, we watched the life story last night with all the relatives. I am sure am glad we had that done.” From time to time I will receive such an email. I, too, am glad he had the forethought years ago to capture his father’s stories.

This brings up a few questions: What gives us such a forethought, makes us decide to do something that will only reveal its value years from now? What am I not doing now that I might regret years from now…after it’s too late to do? I’ll think about this seriously and make a list. This is different from a “bucket list”. A “bucket list” is what you want to do for yourself before you die. This list is for what I can do for others now that I might not be able to do for them in the future. What would be on your list?

“Our Life’s Stories” group on Facebook

I get jazzed when I hear the life stories of the people I interview with LifeStories Alive http://www.lifestoriesalive.com/. I created a group on Facebook called “Our Life’s Stories” http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=124463270908016 so you can share your stories with us. Please feel free to share a meaningful story. Happy or sad, about people or things; you know, the ins and outs of life that make it meaningful and fun.
Enjoy … and welcome to the group!
