Polly Lund once had a patch that said "Scrapbooking is cheaper than therapy... I think." I should have kept one of those patches! I made this page tonight to try to capture today's memories before I forget them. I just feel like I need to do little things to make sure I never forget our simple every day things we do. I felt lucky to take these photos this morning. And I am grateful I made time to make this simple page.
Never forget the power of scrapbooking for your own spirit and the other lives that connect with yours. I know having this page will matter one day to them. I cannot tell you what I would give to know how my Mom felt 30 years ago when she took me to first grade.
I feel lucky that I realized to stop making this all harder than it needed to be. I never would have made a super simple random page like this "back in the day" - but MAN, I love it. I kind of want to sleep with it under my pillow if it would not get all crushed. My photos and my stories are all I really need. That has become more than enough for me, and for that, I am grateful.
I tried to cut and paste my rambling long winded text because I know there will be one of you who is like me and will SQUINT trying to read it. I have no clue why I like to read other people's journaling, but I really do. If you have any need to read this long journaling.... email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will email it to you. I am SO BAD at getting things to work on the computer!
If you take time to read this blog - thanks. I hope it inspires you to simply make something once in a while. :)
