My prompt from the Story of My Life journal was about a keepsake from my childhood.

Here are my keepsakes I still have (and can find easily!):

  • Butterfly bookmark
  • Bible (Precious Moments)
  • American Girl books
  • Other books
  • Volleyball t-shirt
  • Student Council t-shirt

The one I chose to write about was my butterfly bookmark. I chose to write about this one because it is really remarkable that I still have it. I mean, who doesn’t lose bookmarks? It was also not something I intentionally kept. I happened to come across it (in a book) a couple of years ago. I didn’t even remember it, until I saw it.

Here is my writing, enjoy!

Happy reading and writing!

I am a middle school English Language Arts and Social Studies teacher.

    Like you, I have some cherished books from my childhood. When I reread Anne of Green Gables, there’s something comforting in knowing that the book in my hands is the exact same volume I read and reread when I was a middle schooler.

    I also have some “Teen” magazines with feature articles on the Osmonds and David Cassidy. That tells you how much older I am than you 😉 I even have a few Osmonds bubble gum cards. Does anyone even sell bubble gum cards anymore?

    Thank you for sharing. I love this prompt!

      That is how I am with my Harry Potter books! I read the first when I was in 6th grade, I still have that copy and I am proud of how well I took care of it!
