I photographed some beautiful poinsettias when I was out and about this morning; the thinking behind the shot that there was my page for today. But then I read Shimelle's JYC prompt for today (check out my blog friend Rhona's LO, used as an example by Shimelle) and it was all about lists. I love lists and I've got plenty of lists in my head right now. Okay, I thought, keep poinsettias for another day and do lists today. My brain, however, was having none of it. Do "grateful", it kept saying, "and you know why."
Then the postie brought me this, from Amy in Australia ...
Robyn, she knows all about the something?" So I did, and Robyn replied almost immediately with words of wisdom and comfort. And I cried.
So now my album has a page about being grateful and an extra page holding Amy's card and Robyn's email.
And in case you were wondering, the patterned part of the baubles lift up to reveal the journaling. The left hand one reads, "Grateful to Amy from Over At Our Place blog for sending me a beautiful card and for writing such kind things on it." The middle one reads, "Grateful for DS ~ a young boy who can reduce his mummy to tears with these words, "Give me a hug, Mummy"". The right hand one reads, "Grateful for Robyn from Made In Brooklyn blog who replied promptly, honestly and positively to my possibly intrusive and unsolicited email."
(Did any of you notice that I had to butcher an 'F', in order to make a 'T'?)
