Woody Family Stories

by Mike Woody

  For those fortunate enough to reach an elder age, a natural time will occur to reflect and reaffirm the validity of their life's journey. Listen to what they have to say (I did some listening but did not document). This is their time to show us that through all the mistakes and pain, there was also joy and happiness. When we write these stories down it helps us put into perspective what we may have gained and lost as a family or culture.

  There is a rich harvest in reading the many tales of life and travels peculiar to our family. They provide the vehicle by which traditions and values are transferred through the generations. No matter the story line or the length of the yarn, these accounts contain our Woody heritage.

  In our world today we hurry from one thing to another and sometimes get a feeling of vacancy. Stories of our Woody legacy can fill us.

  Please take the time to listen when Grandma reflects. It wouldn't hurt to encourage her a bit either.

By claiming our past..............We can see the future
