2013 was filled with many memories.  Some were exciting and fun…others were difficult to walk through.  Regardless of good or bad, memories were made and we started a new tradition at my house… a way to reminisce about the memories from the previous year.

On January 1, 2013 we started filling a jar with little pieces of paper that have memories written on them.  

Memory Jar

Memories like:  My oldest got his braces off.

My Princess started having seizures and went through a month of testing.

We joined Riverview Church.

Camping topped our list of fun things to do this Summer.

Our van hit 100,000 miles.

And lots more!  On December 31, 2013 we took time to read through all these memories and think back on all the memories of the year.  It was a great way to reflect on the faithfulness of God in the good times and the hard times too.  With a new year, we’ll start a new jar and keep adding memories.

Happy Memory Making!

  1. Happy New Year! What a wonderful way to reflect. Love hearing about your family and how you do life!

  2. What a great idea! I should do that! :)

  3. Have followed your blog for quite a while ~ love it! My daughter had her first seizure when she was 10, 5 years ago. We have been through a lot. If I could ever be of any support, don’t hesitate to contact me. We head to UVA next week to see her neurologist, he left our home state last January ~ yes, it is worth the 4 hour drive. We are currently under control with her seizures. Praying the same for your sweet daughter!

  4. I LOVE this idea! I will be making a memory jar for our house today! Thank you for sharing!

  5. Love this idea! I’m have a mason jar on my desk I’m going to start putting memories in! Love your blog!

  6. Love your idea for the memory jar! Such a great way to save memories! On a side note, I was also diagnosed with epilepsy at age 10. I’m now 34 so it’ s clearly been a while, my prayers are with you and your daughter. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

  7. This is such a neat idea!! It would be a great practice for our family to adopt.
