Sorry to have been a bit melodramatic yesterday. I was just feeling a bit down and melancholy.
I do appreciate that I have it easy in relation to many, many others out there who are really suffering right now.
Anyway, I decide to do a layout from that post (although it is totally coincidental that Cathy Z posted a layout directly created from a blog yesterday, it does have a certain Z influence to it!) and came up with this:
And today the skies are blue, the birds are singing, the sun is shining and spring is back again. You can actually feel that everyone is in a better mood. When I am feeling a bit low, all I have to do is raise my eyes upwards on a bright sunny day and I can feel better in a moment.
I have so much to be thankful and grateful for. I know this. I think about it every day and it is most definitely part of my attempt at becoming a more positive person and even this year's word, calm, fits into this too.
So I produced this. Love this photo so much, for so many reasons. It has a certain poignancy to it, even more right now.
I'm also really proud to be dipping into my scrap box a lot at the moment in an attempt to get through some of the mountains and mountains of stash that I have! I have been doing a lot of scrapping recently, but most of it can't be shared just yet. And I am bursting with ideas of topics to do pages on - just have to capture these and get them done rather than procrastinate like I do.
The weekend is nearly here - yipeee
