Talk About It Tuesday Writing Prompt and What Family Tree Gal’s Talking About

I’m using the Family Tree Gal Daily Prompts to continue writing my personal history this year.  Talk About It Tuesday is especially great for Generational ChangeMakers (GCMs) who are writing their own ChangeMaker story.  Comment below and let us know how YOU are making a difference in your family line.  Twitter hashtag for Talk About It Tuesday= #taitues

Talk about specific things you are doing this week to meet your family history goals or tell what you are doing to meet any one of the three goals of Family Tree Quest, to 1) Glean Wisdom from the Past, 2) Live Mindfully in the Present, or 3) Prepare Confidently for the Future.  You may wish to record this in your journal (history-in-the-making) or personal history records.

Here’s what’s on my mind today:

I recently got home from a wonderful 7 weeks with my daughter's family in Utah.  I was there to welcome our 7th grandchild into the world.  I had a great time playing with my 4-year-old granddaughter and helping her parents by fixing the afternoon meal each day.  

I loved listening to my son-in-law read from the family history of his well-loved grandfather and grandmother.  My grandson was named after a man that helped save the life of this grandmother (whose history he was reading).  

While there we watched an outstanding video about family history which included the author, David McCullough.  I was able to see some hardbound books containing thousands of family names on her father's side of the family.  (My daughter received these in the mail after making a connection from comments left on RootsWeb.) Then, on the 24th of July, I read a more complete history than I had ever seen before of one of my favorite ancestors.

Now that I'm home, I have to get organized again.  In living mindfully in the present, I am preparing ahead for the upcoming holidays.  I want both my business and personal life to be orderly, so I'm making room on my calendar for extra events and fun times with family.

Do you do anything special to plan ahead?
