I just thought of something . . .

So I'm reading Missy's Welcome message and this thought occurred to me. Every day that I work at For Keeps Sake I meet and work with very special people. I hear amazing stories from my customers and it reminds me how lucky I am to come in contact with scrapbookers every day. Sooo. . . with that in mind I am going to share some of the neat, cool little moments that I have the privilege to be a part of . . .
I had a young girl come in today, she's a regular customer probably in her mid 20's and while making a purchase she shares what she is working on. She is making a small album for her daughter, the pages don't have pictures but they have a lot journaling. Thoughts and hopes and dreams from her Mom. She is pouring her heart out onto the pages and the neat thing is that this is for a child that is yet to be born. She hasn't even been conceived yet! It was so important to her to do this because she didn't have a good relationship with her own Mother! This is why she scrapbooks!
Every now and then it's good to step back and remember just why we scrapbook in the first place (That's not an original thought, it's straight from Stacy Julian!). That's all for now! Sue
