Thank youSo we embark on the last of our reasons to scrapbook and we’re thankful for it! lol!

Just how often do we stop and ‘count our blessings’ as the old hymn says – aside from Thanksgiving Day?

Use your scrap book to show the things you are glad to be, to have or to be a part of. It’s so easy to take things for granted. If we make a special layout for some of them then we can express thankfulness for now, and for the future. When things get tough, as they will at times, we will have something tangible we can go to and remember the blessings that the current difficulties hide from us.

It can be as simple as the smile of a friend when she’s glad to see us, and the acceptance that shows us when we feel unlovable.

It can be the card we get that encourages us or to say ‘Happy Birthday’. Don’t take that ‘you’re special’ on the front lightly. We send cards to each other because we want to say just that: you are special to me. Accept it and be thankful for it.

Nowadays we usually think of scrapbooking photographs, but we can scrapbook cards, postcards, things said or read. Every little encouragement is something to be thankful for, even if we can’t feel it at the time.

It’s been a marathon listing the reasons to scrapbook. I’m glad we’re finishing on a high like thankfulness. As well as scrapbooking the things you’re thankful for, don’t forget to tell those special people in your life that you are thankful for them.
