Gift for my Daughter was my first life story book and now I'm working on the second in the series. I don't want my life to be forgotten and I want to pass on my legacy to my grandchildren and great-grandchildren (and even more generations!) Writing about one's life is not an easy thing to do but it is SO worthwhile - it gives a sense of achievement, satisfaction and meaning. Like everyone at my age I feel I've learnt so many lessons that I wish I'd known when younger but I knowl I've consistently steered the course of my life in the directions I wanted to go in - and that really is the best feeling there is.

Don't think because you've had to face sorrow that your life has been sad - all our experiences enhance our learning and understanding. Each experience makes us stronger and more resilient and makes us who we are today. Recalling all these moments, especially putting them down on paper, helps us come to terms with them and benefit from them. Your life story - and all your experiences - are vitally important - they are lessons to pass on to future generations.
