Here is my attempt at the journaling challenge. I used kit: "
All the Feel" for this one.
Something that "takes my breath away" - but not in a good way! LOL!
lots of emotion this month
Lots of journaling with this one. It is a picture (extracted) of the hospital band for my baby boy when he had a febrile seizure. One of the scariest things I have ever experienced.
I have a heartfelt situation with photos Id love to scrap, but I do not think I'm ready yet. I have 2 adult children, a son and daughter. Both were expecting babies in the fall/early winter. My sons baby died at 7 months or so along. The girl then was told by her mother to dump my son, as it was all his fault. He was doubly heartbroken. My daughter had a scare with her baby. They saw a lump on its neck in the ultrasound and thought spina bifida. Prayers were said by many people and when the specialist took a look, the lump was gone. I now feel bad seeing the living baby ultrasounds (my daughters 5th) and thinking of what could have been for my son (his 1st) I want to scrap this situation, but I can't yet. I scrapped my youngest sons summer instead. He had emergency surgery the end of May and then got very sick about 6 weeks later with bronchitis that would not go away easily. He spent almost all his summer healing from surgery, sick, with bad asthma and just home. I feel very bad and guilty his precious summer was wasted. When I see these photos, it reminds me we did have some fun here at home! He's doing better now, so I'm using these few Fridays left of summer that his dad has off to go to a few museums that have mummies!
Here's mine. Thanks for a great challenge!
My daughter has been battling depression for at least a year and a half now. She's getting intensive therapy but it's the hardest thing any of us have ever experienced. Sorry the journaling isn't easy to read; I'm ambivalent about sharing it so publicly.

Wonderful challenge; Here be mine:
@jenn mccabe Can I just say I LOVE you for this challenge? I have had the BIGGEST scrappers block and you said about anything that we were emotional/passionate about. I had a moment where I was like "if I can't even trust you with my pain, how am I supposed to share my heart." This came about after I read your challenge and it made me feel better. Super hugs!! Thanks for knocking some of the rust loose!
This photo sprang to my mind immediately when I read this challenge:
Early Warning Cat Defense
It drove me crazy when Wassy would walk across and stop on my computer. I finally covered a box and put a cute shelf with a mini tea cup to block him. Lid down he still sits.
