A few months ago, I created a series of programs for the Library Archives Department entitled: The Canebrake Oral History Series: A Window into Our Collective Past and each month, planned something special to share with others. The first one we held is described in an earlier post, and it was honoring the memories of Sallie Ellis Weekley. We did one in December about Sharing Christmas Memories, and had great participation. January we skipped because of the flu outbreak, and February--well, today it flooded! So many were kept away from the event because of the weather, but two friends did drop in for a little bit, and between Diane Sosebee, our co-worker, myself and them, we managed to share a few stories for just a bit before they had to get back out and home before the next front comes through. I heard marvelous stories about how their parents or grandparents met; stories about their life together; and just in general about their childhood! We laughed at some till we nearly cried! We also realized how similar our childhoods were, even with an age difference! Take the time to share with your children, grandchildren, and other family members about your own childhood or that of your parents and grandparents. Share the Love and Share YOUR Story!
