Love Month

Hey girlZ,
Years ago a elderly lady gave me a little saying that she had found in a Readers Digest & I have never forgotten it. It said, "The greatest compliment you can pay someone is attention." With my busy life sometimes I find myself not even really listening or giving attention to those I love the most.
I know we all scrap because we love our family & friends & want to leave a legacy of love in our scrapbooks. But since this is "love month" lets remember to spend some extra time & attention on those we love. Let them know not only through your scrappin' but by the special attention you give them that they mean the world to you.

I love that quote! And needed to hear it today... as I'm feeling a need to slow down a bit and spend more time just "hanging out" with my 3-year-old daughter. Even though I'm a SAHM, I find that I get so "busy" with doing things around the house that I realize at the end of the day that maybe the more important thing I could have done was snuggle on the sofa and watch The Little Mermaid with Rachel... or play "just one more" game of Hide & Seek! Too soon she will be off to school..and the laundry and housework will still be here waiting!

I think all of us could slow down a little and enjoy our loved ones more. Our children & grandchildren grow up way to fast for sure!!!
