I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of you mom.

Your story is one of the reasons why I scrapbook. It's also the main reason why I do most of my journaling by hand.

I'm sure that finding those pages was worth more than anything else that she could have given to you.

LOVELY story and this is why I scrapbook!!!
It's my hopes that once I'm gone, my kids will know how much I loved them by the words that I wrote to them.
Thanks for sharing.

I am sorry for the loss of your precious mother. She truly left you a treasure.

know the pain or
struggles of a rescue dog
the love they show
is unlike any other...

I'm sorry for your loss, what a wonderful surprise to find.

I lost my mom just 2 weeks ago and although she was not a scrapper, I have the last several letters she wrote to me.
