1,000 Memories

memoriesWhen grieving the loss of a loved one, it is very helpful to become the historian and celebrate their life by writing about it.  One way to do this is by compiling a list of 1,000 memories.  There’s nothing magical about the number 1,000, but by the time you get to 1,000, you will probably have a fairly complete picture of the person and all of the key things that are significant for you to remember.

This can be as simple or elaborate as you want it to be.  Just take a notebook or journal and write down every memory or thought that comes to mind about that person.  You can make it a collection of one-liners, or add details.  It’s up to you.

With time, details often fade or get jumbled up together.  Having a notebook or journal available when a memory or thought comes to mind is a great way to remember all of the details or stories that may get fuzzy with time.  You don’t have to write all 1,000 thoughts or memories down all at once—it can be an ongoing project until you feel that it is finished.

What a way to honor their legacy and memory!  This is also a great keepsake to pass down to your children or other family members.
