Another post tonight!
As I said previously I've decided not to enter the EDM competition. I'll still keep the album going, but on my own terms. My layouts were all fairly simple, but I put a lot of journalling into each page. This was the second last one I did, but I think one of my faves. Each page just had a random number, so the 842 doesn't mean anything in particular... it's just a Random Everyday Moment #. I wanted to upload them all together at the end, so I haven't put them anywhere yet, and only those who have scrapped with me have even seen them. They are all double 8.5x11's
The journalling will be impossible to read, so I'll include it here:
Lids off. This is my darling hubbies trademark! Every morning I wake to this sight. Some mornings it annoys me more than others. I mean, how difficult is it to put the lids back on things? It will only take a few seconds I whinge time and time again. Over six years we have been married, and still those lids get left off every morning. And then, in the midst of my rather pathetic whining, I am reminded... What if one day I was to wake up, only to not be greeted by this sight? What if one morning I woke up, to find that the love of my life, my soul mate and best friend had not been into our kitchen that day? What if one morning I woke to find the adored father of my children, the husband of my dreams, my confidant and lover was gone from my life? I bet I would give the world to see those lids left off just one more time. I bet I would shudder to think of all my pointless whining. I bet I would realise, in the scheme of things, just how unimportant some things are. So today I'll look at it differently, and hopefully tomorrow, and the next day, I'll see that what initially looks like a burden, may actually be a blessing. A reminder of the beautiful man I am blessed to not only live with, but also spend eternity with. The beautiful man, who often does leave the lids off, because he is in a rush to get off to work, to earn a good income so that I am able to stay at home with our children. Ill see that even though he forgot to put the lids on, he didn't forget to make me my morning cuppa. So I'll smile as I walk into the kitchen, to be greeted by this sight. And I'll realise it's not that big an issue, for me to take the few seconds to put them away.
