The other day, this photo popped up in my Facebook feed.
And it made my heart sing!!

These sweet twin girls, snuggled in a big ol' chair, were looking at a scrapbook that tells their mama's childhood story. There they are....her babies looking at her baby pictures! I can just imagine all the different stories they'll learn about their mom as she talks to them about each photo...over the years they'll understand more about who they are and where they come from as she shares pieces of her history with them.

It's for moments like these that I do what I do. I believe in printing the photos. And sorting the photos. And putting them together with {at least a few} words to tell our stories. We've read it and heard it - we all really do have stories to tell! It's the happiest of all things for me...and such an be a part of helping people tell their stories. I know we won't all do it 'scrapbook' style - but I hope those sweet twins inspire us all to keep recording the big milestones, and some of the little  moments ... for this generation, and the generations to come!

"A mother's happiness is like a beacon,
lighting up the future...
but reflected also on the past
in the guise of fond memories."
Honore de Balzac
