Can you believe it?
I am getting back in the daily swing of my personal Library of Memories, spending 15 to 30 minutes each day engaged with one part of my system. Since my energy bottomed out in the spring last year, I’ve done very little scrapbooking that didn’t have a deadline attached. But I’m slowly recovering my creative inertia and am happy to report that I made a page! It’s nothing amazing, but it was restorative and it records a glimpse of my relationship with Tafty.
My complicated, sensitive and very cautious Taft wrote me a note last week and it was so good that I wasn’t OK filing it away. I needed to scrapbook it and I did. In this note Taft assures me that he appreciates the encouragement I give him and that without me he would probably still be in kindergarten! I laughed and I cried and found two photos of Taft (pre-kindergarten) to use on this layout that holds his note. I wrote a response back to Taft and told him he has no idea how much I need notes like his or how much I love him.
He is brilliant and full of potential.
I will continue to push him in positive directions and know that his reluctance should not be taken too seriously.
