Scrapbookers document. Through photos, words, and products, we chose a story, we convey a mood, we record our perspective. We choose big stories - life's monumental occasions: weddings, new babies, graduations. We choose the reoccurring biggies: first days of school, lost teeth, Thanksgiving and birthdays. But we often forget to record those fleeting moments that make up the seemingly mundane of every day life.
Listen, I'm guilty of this, too. Kids whining about not wanting to unload the dishwasher is hardly compelling scrapbook material. But I got this one right. And it may not make sense, or you may get mired down in the minutia of what was said, but for me the fact that I got that crappy cell phone photo and a quote from my son down - that's my definition of hitting it spot on.
I love that I saved this memory. It might not make sense to anyone other than me, but it's my memory and every time I turn the page and see this, I will smile and my heart will be happy.
