I gave this book to my mother for Christmas a few years ago and asked her to give it back to me for Christmas the next year filled in. I have never cherished anything more. What a wonderful gift! She also enjoyed reflecting on her life as she completed it. One entry a day is all it takes. I'm now ordering two for my own children and will pass down my mother's and father's books to them. Oh yes, I had my dad do the same thing the same year in "A Father's Legacy". I highly recommend these books to all families.
