You are unique. You are the only one who can describe the people, times, and places that your children and grandchildren will want to know about. Even if they aren't even a bit curious today, I believe that someday they will want to know what it was like when you were a little boy or little girl. They will appreciate your memories of your parents and grandparents. Take this opportunity to tell them.

Writing your life story is also a good time to make sure you express your love. It will be a gift to your family for years and perhaps centuries to come.
