This year I have missed recording weekly gratitudes. I began the year, instead, attempting 1000 gifts and didn't get very far...maybe I'll return to that, sometime. In the meantime, in August, I saw a journal heading, good things, and thought - hey, I like that. Thought it would be a great photo-less page of good stuff. When I speak of good stuff, when I write them down it isn't an exercise of speaking the words off into the unknown but is, in fact, an exercise in gratitude my big God who is good all the time and this is simply another way to acknowledge my thanksgiving, my gratefulness for the blessings He gives.
I'm recording them on a 6 x 8 page, adding a couple Ali Edwards' digital brushes and putting the page into my All About Me album. I have been creating pages about me since the beginning of the year and have already filled one album and well into a second album. I cannot lie. This is and has been one of my most favorite scrapbooking endeavors, surprisingly, to me. If I look through my 25 years worth of albums and pages of our lives I might be able to fill half an album of pages about me and yet this year I've filled one and am on my way to filling two.
But, times are different. All my kids are grown up. Sure, John and Jarrod still live at home but they have their own things, now. For the most part it is Jeff and I doing life together, not empty-nesters but that isn't far off. Will I continue this with another year of All About Me in 2019? I'm not sure. It's been creative fun for sure.
