My Heart

Today’s prompt was about a good and bad memory from Christmas.  The challenge was to divide the page.  It was a fun coincedence that I had used a file folder yesterday I originally was going to glue it shut, but with this prompt I just opened it and had a natural divide.

Unfortunately Lena’s first Christmas was my worst, but my grandmother reminded me she would never remember the drama and told me that every Christmas after the first I needed to remember what had been done on the first and not let it be repeated.  That grandmother of mine was a very wise woman.  We drove back across the country, I cried most of the way.  I promised a sleeping Lena that she would never have drama filled Christmases, and I have kept that promise.  Her second Christmas was my first away from my extended family, but to this day was one of my best. 

Don’t you love these pages??

Aren’t these trees cute?

Who doesn’t love Santa?

My heart has been heavy today, it has been for a few days.  My Handy Man husband has made my heart feel good today though.  I see God working on Carl’s heart and I feel so blessed.  A family has heat tonight and it’s because of Carl and Gary, how can that not bless you?  Talking to Sherri today I was reminded that you have many opportunities to bless people without ever leaving your own neighborhood.  If you are sitting in your home today, and you are warm pray for people who aren’t that lucky. 

I found this ornament today while surfing the internet, why do I find these cute things and then stress about making them?

About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction.

    Great use of the folder … I’ve got a smaller one in black I’ve got to remember to use, maybe even in this album! 😀 Love the design of your two pages — they compliment each other very well!

    The file folder makes an awesome two-page spread! Hope you are feeling a little happier today. It’s great that your DH was able to help someone who really needed it.
