Of course I would read the book of my life and from cover to cover. I’ll like to check if the writer get’s the story right or at least close enough. Maybe it will turn into a motion picture starring Meryl Streep. For sure, before I sit to read I better have a box of tissue. Lately my memory isn’t as sharp as before and getting to read the story of my life would bring those memories back. I would remember the way I was raised the love, sacrifices, and the hard work of my parents to raise six of us. As a child watching my mother’s health deteriorated was tough, however we did appreciate every little thing we have.
Should I want to read my horrible experiences? Depends on which one the author decides to write. Some of my bad experience as a child, I’ve never told not even my parents so those I’m sure would never make it into the book.
Another part of my story that would be touching and heart breaking would be my teenage years. I can’t forget the day I met my precious best friend Lucy. Everything we went through from partying, happy times, boyfriends, shameful mistakes, and tragedy. I lost her in a car accident in 1982 she was 23. She was going to be my maid of honor. I was devastated. My life has changed forever. I married in 1983 I’ve my first two kids 84 & 86 and a few months later after my daughter’s birth I lost my mother. Again, I was devastated. Sadness, tears, and depression began to be part of me.
However, as I say before I would keep reading. I want to bring back the memories that for any reason my brain has blocked. The memories that made me the way I am.
What happen with the future me? Should I read that part too? I will in a heart bit. I’m curious to know what happen to me and what legacy I left to my love ones. It will be interesting to know which of my kids will miss me the most. Who will keep the memories and traditions alive?
I’m wondering if they would ban the book.
Daily Post: If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover.
