This month’s Be Blogged Circle that started with some very talented ladies over on the forum at Girl Hearts Camera which is now located at Light Inspired is Be Thankful . . .What am I thankful for? I am thankful for my family, husband, son, daughter, dog. I’m thankful we live not just in a house but a home. I’m thankful for pajama days. I’m thankful for our laughter, our support of each other, our kisses, our silliness, our love. I’m thankful I’m an American and for a woman’s right to vote. I’m thankful for my dad. I’m thankful for the beach and art and the invention of the camera. I’m thankful for grandmas and papas. I am thankful for the thoughtfulness of others. And I’m truly thankful for the memories of all of it.
As I was going through looking for images that represented what I was thankful for, I came across some images I took of my grandmother’s photo album. It reminded me how I want to make sure I print out all the things I love and cherish so others can see and access my memories too. There is nothing like holding something in your hand that can make you remember how you felt. Sure I could log into a computer and search through pictures but isn’t it more fun to flip through books or even boxes of prints that take your through time?
But then again I’m still a sucker for a book, a good old fashioned moldy used book with torn and tattered edges. Oh how I’m thankful . . .
