I've taken a day of vacation today because, frankly, I needed the break. I plan, among other things, to work some more on the scrapbook from our trip to England at Christmas. It's difficult to do because it was not like any other trip we've made there. I'm still hoping to get my husband to put his thoughts about losing his father on paper to help him through the grief process. I've already incorporated old photos of his father with him as a baby.
I will include photos of my husband with his mother, too, this time. I never met my husband's mother because she passed away before we met. We visited her grave in December, and it brought on a fresh sorrow to him because he misses her so much.
I think it's one of the many wonderful aspects of scrapbooking that we can record both joyful and sad memories ... to help us move on, to help us look back, to help us reflect, to help us mourn, and to help us remember. How precious life is!
Today's word art has nothing to do with what I've just said ... but hopefully it will make you smile. It made me chuckle when I found it ... and it certainly is a good way to start a MONDAY.
Blessings on your day,
