Yes, I should have been studying. Yes, there is washing to be done. Yes, the floor is filthy LOL
I don't care!
I had fun ;)
This month's challenge was to incorporate the saying 'there is no greater gift than today' into your LO (using a Kraft base of course).
As soon as I read that quote, I knew that I wanted to use these photos. These were taken the weekend before we found out that mum was sick.
The past 9 months are divided up into two times for me....the time before and the time after mum got sick and died.
At the time these photos were taken I truly had no idea what a gift that day was.
A last fun, carefree family time before I disappeared up north and my life changed.
The Kraft envelope has journalling inside explaining the reason for the title.
I had no idea this day that mum was even sick. We packed up the kids
and drove to Mount Perry for lunch. At the time we were disappointed that the
restaurant was closed, but I look back now, and think about what a fun,
special time it was. I feel that mum's sudden illness and death has changed me
forever. I still don't feel the same as I did 'before'.
Mum's death truly made me realise that this life we have, every day we
have, is a gift. Not to be wasted. Who's to know when it will be our last happy
We should tell people that we love them. We should fill our days with
happiness and fun, and people who matter.
Truly, 'there is no greater gift than today'
And, I promise that the wonkiness is the fault of the photographer...the title is straight!!! ;)
I really wish i could take better photos of my LOs!
