Melanie here… thanks for the enthusiastic welcome yesterday! I’m Canadian, and we celebrated our Thanksgiving last month. But I’m so glad Stacy asked me to join her in celebration of it again. This gives me another chance to reflect on all that I’m thankful for. Today’s letter is : H, for Heart. My heart definitely belongs to my family- my husband and two sons. They’re the reason I started scrapbooking, and the reason I continue to scrapbook. To tell the story of us, to add words to the photos that I love, that I know will slowly disappear from my (aging!) memory if I don’t have them written down. My heart is full when I’m with them, and it aches when I’m away from them.
Here is a challenge to you: scrapbook a page about your family, and add journaling about how you really feel about them. Write it from your 'heart', and try including a photo with YOU in it!
