All i have to say is...

WOW!

we have been visiting the blogs of the entries and you guys rock and totally inspire me. I hope working through some of this was therapuetic for everyone. I know it was for me. People look at me strange {well at least I feel them through cyberspace, LOL} when I tell them that it is no surprise to find me laughing or crying in my scraproom at times.

And, as I sit here typing with tears in my eyes like total weirdo, lol... I have made plans to go see my grandmother. Thanks for those of you who have reminded me that even though she is not there mentally, that there is still a part of her that knows me and knows I am there.

I wanted to add the second half of the month's layout from Peggy and Jocelyn. Make sure you put us on your blogger feed b/c in the next few weeks we will post the entry layouts.


The journaling reads
Do I want to hold onto the hurt......
the pain that was so deep I thought I could
never take a deep breath again...Will I give
you this much control over my life. NO!
I must move forward....I must forgive.
I can breathe again...I can Smile.....
for this experience I have grown to be
the person that I know Today.....Forgive....


Peggy:



My journaling:
"I would give a lot to see you just one more time. I would tell you how much I love you, and how much I miss you.
You never asked for much, but I was too occupied with myself to even give you the little you asked.
You've always been there for me. I'm so sorry I haven't always been there for you."

Hugging both of you. Regret can eat your lunch. I am hoping all of us can learn to live and love EVERY DAY to the fullest.
