Pollyanna. My favorite book growing up and one of the books that has had the most impact on my life. The whole story is so believable and the message is one that can not be told too often. It taught me that things are never so bad that they couldn't be worse and I'm thankful that I made my way into adulthood with that mentality. It made everything that happened in my 20s bearable and made it easier to keep my head above water when I could have drowned.
The story of how these books came into my life is so treasured. I believe that we are meant to learn from the people around us and that we all have the right people in our lives. My grandmother has made such a difference in my life, even when we lived in different continents. This is just a tiny glimpse into our relationship.
As I've mentioned before, I suscribe to Ali Edward's story kits. I love getting the inspiration every month and I love being prompted to tell my own story. I feel like so many kit clubs and just memorykeeping in general is geared toward mothers with kids and sometimes feel like I just don't belong in that whole spectrum. These kits, however, help me to tell my story. I'm not prompted to show just the surface of my life, what I did and where, but the stories that make up who I am. The little things that come together and actually make up the big stuff. I am getting these stories down on paper and into my album and for that I'm thankful.
I used mostly items from the Read story kit along with my typewriter. The title is stamped with Stazon and these Sans-Serif alpha stamps from Ali's store.
Thanks for stopping by.
