I love my guy...
If you are a scrapbooker...how do you journal. My grandpa kept a daily diary but it had more weather information in it than anything else. My grandmother would add a few occasional tidbits like "the little girls stayed tonight, Ina went to have the baby". I wanted more! I was one of those little girls and the baby is my brother Matt.
What did they think about keeping us? What did they have planned. Did they wish for a boy or a girl? Were we well behaved? These details matter to me. Finding their journals with excitement and then with some disappointment...was another reason I choose to fill my time with scrapbooking. Our history is so much a part of us. It can define us...break us...or load us up with hope and inspiration. Journaling matters...not just the event...but the feelings.
