Week 11: You are loved!



The first reason why I got hooked into scrapbooking was just to  organize Gaby’s (my firstborn)  photos in a pretty way  (you know how eager-beaver a first time mom is).   To record her milestones and arrange special occasion-pictures with captions.   But as my photos pile up,  even though I do pages regularly, backlogs still keep on building up.   I,  then came to realize that scrapbooking is not merely doing pages chronologically.     It means telling stories which I will surely forget when I’m old and gray.   It means letting go of emotions, sharing of thoughts and  dreams for the whole world to see.  It means telling your friends and family…especially your husband and children that they are truly loved! 

Now, I let go,  darn the backlogs.  I stopped doing it chronologically.  I now scrapbook photos which inspire me, be it a day or a decade old photo/s.  

Here’s a favorite photo of my youngest which was taken 7months ago. 





Journal:  Your antics mostly amuse us.  But sometimes they get into our nerves especially in your Ate Gaby’s.  You easily get away with it, anyway (edit),  because…you are loved!
