The enormity of what we do strikes me at the strangest times. I've been feeling a bit pointless lately, while being a mum is great when every one forgets their pleases and thank you's and thinks you will come running when they scream and an endless stream of I want's
and do we have to's
and it can seem like a pretty crumby job occasionally.
I ask myself how will I leave my mark what will I do, what will I discover and I come up with nothing. Then I finished a layout today, it has been a three day process, I don't like to rush things these days. As I wrote the date on the layout it struck me, 1968
was 40 years ago, I have no idea what was going on in my life or the life of my family, but when Alec and Riley are 42 they will be able to see what was happening and who I am and what I thought. If I do nothing else in my life at least I have been a record keeper for our little family.
and look how much sewing I was able to cram onto that layout :) it is the first layout I have sewn on with my machine. I even managed to change the stitch!
