Momstribute.com gives you the opportunity to write a journal. Anything you type is saved and can be added to at your leisure. Don't know what to write about? How about taking inspiration from the writer of our featured book on this site, "Lois and her Irish-ness"? It started as a journal about his mom and it ultimately gave him a life-changing insight into the lives of all those who knitted into his family circle. Here is an excerpt:
I have much gratitude and appreciation for the many people I have met along the way. This journey was not planned yet very welcomed with so much to appreciate. It started with a simple request by my mom to document her life story. It has now been ten years of learning and documenting, collecting and collaborating, laughing and sometimes screaming in frustration. It has been rewarding as well as fatiguing, fulfilling and sometimes saddening, but ultimately bringing me a sense of gratefulness and appreciation.
This work is not just a family book, it is an Irish book for the ages, written for all to share and pass on to generation after generation. The hope is that many others with families from origins all around the world embrace a similar journey rather than say, “I wish we did!” This journey is an embodiment of love for many kindred Irish relatives and friends who willingly worked with me to create it. This book is about our collective Irish families, their journeys in life whether they stayed in Ireland or chose to come to America and build a new life. We start with my mom, Lois. As family and friends were her riches in life, we hope to knit together a rich Irish history.
