Turn your journal into a scrapbook. On one page, paste in pictures, ticket stubs, notes, small scraps of paper or anything else that has some sentimental value. Then on the next page, write about the particular memory associated with those items. For example, maybe you and your child went to a baseball game. Paste in pictures of the two of you at the game along with your ticket stubs and/or scorecard. Then write about the day the two of you shared. Try to share as many specific details as you can so that when you go back and read it, the memory is as fresh as the day it happened.
