I found the coolest old journal of mine at my parents’ house the other week. It’s called All About Me. Did you ever have one of those journals where you fill in the blanks? It asks you questions, gives you lists of boxes to check and offers prompts to get you writing about different ideas pertaining to your life? Well, this is one of those books. And guess how old I was when I was filling it out? I was the responsible age of EIGHT! See why it’s a cool journal? Thoughts of an 8 year old! Well, I enjoyed reading it so maybe you’ll enjoy some excerpts from it over the next few Thursday journal entries.
