Drawing Winner!

Hi Everyone! Whew! This has been a busy last couple of days and that is a GOOD thing :o) I had two events over the weekend where I met some really friendly people. The first event was the Family Reunion Workshop in Alpharetta, GA. Now I'm not planning a family reunion anytime soon, but this was very interesting! I learned a lot of great ideas and even shared a few of my own about storybooks :o) This FREE event is held quarterly and a great idea for those planning a family reunion. See www.awesomealpharetta.com for more info.

The next event was the Fabulous 50's Festival in Cleveland, GA. This was a lot of fun! I think the best part was seeing the look of sheer joy on my son's face while he was doing the bungee jumpy thing :o) Thank goodness the rain held off and we had a nice evening.

Congratulations to Ms. Precious C. of Atlanta, GA! She is the winner of the drawing for a FREE 5x5 storybook credit. I cannot wait to help her get started!

Letter From Heaven

Today would be my son's 5th birthday. He was born 16 weeks too early and only lived for 2 weeks. I think about him every day. I wonder what he would be like, what would make him laugh, who his friends would be. This post is in memory of Brian Kevin Miller, Jr...

Letter From Heaven ~ author unknown

Mommy, Daddy, how I miss you
and I know you're missing me.
There are windows here in Heaven
and every day I look and see
my toys all in the toy box
and my dolls up on the shelf.
I can't pull them in my wagon now
or hold them to myself.
My little rocker's empty
and your arms feel empty, too.
I can see the sadness in your face.
Mommy, Daddy, I love you.
My music box is silent,
but I don't need to hear it play.
Mommy, Daddy, it's not needed now.
Angels here sing every day.
Please don't worry that I'm lonely
There are children everywhere.
We are all His angels
and there's so much love up here.
Mommy, Daddy, please don't cry.
Heaven's such a lovely place!
God says you did the very best
And your love shows in my face.
Mommy, Daddy, when you need me,
just look up and say a prayer.
I will see you through the windows
and I'll hear your voice up here.

Pictures are the first step to preserving all of our precious memories, but what you do with those pictures will determine whether or not your stories are being passed on for generations to come.

I look forward to helping you with your scanning needs,
