I saw this saying a while ago but it wasn’t until this Christmas that I was reminded of it again. Although it wasn’t my children but my extended family who enjoyed my efforts.
Christmas can be such a hard time when you have lost special people from your life and I think my family was feeling that this year. Gifts such as these can be bittersweet but the sentiment behind them, the conversations and memories they spark are hopefully more meaningful than the pain and longing they trigger.
Rest in peace my special people. Gone but not forgotten.
This year could be the year for YOU to start getting your photos and treasured memories shared as well. Scrapbooking is a great way to do that. I have been working on my album today and have been using the Project Life system along with traditional pages which has made things go along a lot faster. I’m off camping tomorrow and my current albums is coming too so I can work on it. Hmm judging by the weather report I shall have plenty of time to work on it!
