Serendipity Blog Challenge






So Serendipity is having a blog party and the challenge this time is for posting a scraplift...which I am doing here....I found this board book in a Christmas Kit...I knew it was there, but didn't have a need for it, so I never looked real close at it...well it was a super cool Urban Lily secret Keeper book...when I looked at it, I couldn't believe the little treasure I had...so I am now on the quest to get more of these, but here is a baby album I made from this one...
So THanks Eliabeth for the idea...
Also, Kim's Challenge this week was to write about someone special to you....I am not sure why I think of Laura when I hear things like this, but she really taught me the importance of telling people you love them...Laura was a dear old lady in our church...mostly known as the cookie lady...she ALWAYS HAD COOKIES...anyway, she was very dear to me...when I was pregnant with Grace, before we knew we were having a girl, she told me...I am crocheting you a blanket...it's pink....I thought that was funny....but she seemed to know...then after Grace had been here a few months, she asked if Ruth Circle had made me a quilt...I said no, but that she had given me that blanket...well that wasn't good enough...so I got a beautiful quilt as well....
Then in July, we were working on Vacation Bible School...she was the snack lady and we were planning the shopping list...so we had talked and she was working away, serving the Lord...one hour later she had passed away...that's how I want to go...serving the Lord...anyway, this was a wake up call for me...I never told her how much I loved her and how special she was to me...there are other people that mean more to me than Laura, but she is the reason that they all know that I love them....
