I'm not behind. I have lots of stories waiting to be recorded but I am not behind. Remember, I'm making a life as well as a scrapbook about that life.
While I love that some future descendant may glean enjoyment from my scrappy craft, I do it because I love it. If no one ever loved it, I would still do it. It makes me happy.
The stories I manage to capture will just have to be enough for the future.
If there are big events that don't make it into my scrapbook, so be it.
I don't owe my sons a certain number of pages about their childhoods.
If my grandmother had been a scrapbooker, (at 89 she hasn't taken up this hobby so I don't really think she's going to catch the bug in this lifetime) you wouldn't hear me complaining about what she didn't include in her scrapbook. No way, no how.
I would be happy as a clam with whatever she decided to include.
I expect it to be that way with my heirs. I do what speaks to me. I tell the stories I value.
And that will just have to be enough.
That's today's bit of Scrapbooking philosophy.
