The Passage of Time

As we enter the holiday season, I often reflect about how we mark the passage of time. Birthday's, anniversaries, class reunions, years since someone has been gone...... the list goes on and on. I think that this is one reason I like to make scrapbook layouts. For the really old photos, those in my family who I was not blessed to know, I can research their lives. For those I have known it is a way to memorialize them. My memories of their special qualities and who they were to me. In that way, hopefully, my family will be able to share my thoughts in the future.

I have recently completed two layouts that mark the passage of time. The first one Mears Family, honors my DH Jim and our now 10 year marriage. The second one is me as a high school senior. This was 28 plus years ago now. (And I haven't aged a bit).

Thanks to those of you who visit my blog. You are wonderful friends and I truly am Thankful for YOU!

No, I don't still play. I did until about 10 years ago. I may pick it up again in the future though!
