Today was an emotional day as Mom and I went to Wichita Falls to a funeral of a family friend. As I looked around, I saw so many familiar faces, but it had been years since I had seen most of them so I wasn't positive about anyone! It's crazy how you "remember" silly things, being a part of someone's story and then you look up - some 20 years later - and everyone is grown with kids of their own. They have their own stories and their own lives - and you are no longer a part of their world, only a part of their history. If today doesn't speak volumes as to why I am passionate about scrapbooking, then I could never explain it. My goal is to leave my stories, the big ones and the little ones, the happy ones and the not-so happy ones, the daily moments that distinguish who I am and from whence I came. I'm so incredibly blessed and I could never put into words the gratitude I feel for every single individual who has crossed my path...that includes you. Have a blessed day.
