Precious Memories

Precious mem'ries, unseen angels
Sent from somewhere to my soul
How they linger, ever near me
As the sacred past unfold.

Precious mem'ries, how they linger
How they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight
Precious, sacred scenes unfold.

As I travel on life's pathway
I know not what the years may hold
And as I ponder, hope grows fonder
Precious mem'ries floods my soul.

Precious mem'ries how they linger
How they ever flood my soul
In the stillness of the midnight
Precious, sacred scenes unfold... 

Many of you know that I my favorite pastime is digi-scrapping, and I especially love doing heritage pages.  I have completed several family photo books for our Kiper and Phelps family.  It is my attempt to share with my children and grandchildren their heritage; a glimpse into 
the lives of the families, they never really got to know.  They do not have the privilege of sitting around the kitchen table on a Sunday afternoon surrounded by grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends as I did at my Grandma Stewart's house.  And, they don't really remember all the wonderful days we shared with their numerous Mudd relatives at Mamaw and Papaw Nette's
house when they were small.  It is my belief that these memories are great treasures, and it is my duty to get as much recorded for them as possible while I can.  When I am gone, so too are the 
Precious Memories. 

So in that spirit, I scrap, and once again, I am working on some Stewart and Mudd heritage pages. 
It takes many hours to work on these massive scrapbooks, so it is, it seems, a never ending process.
Especially as I strive to keep up with my family's here-and-now, everyday photos but digi-scrapping is how I maintain my sanity as I spend hours and hours with only me, myself and I as a stay-at-home Granny.  Some days, I can roll out numerous scrapbook pages;  some days I am lucky to get one finished.  Then there are days and weeks, that I forget about it all together.  But that is the beatuty
of digi-scrapping for as long as my computer keeps working all it takes for me to get started is to sit down with my photo-editing software of choice, and begin.

Thank you for stopping by today and visiting with me here in the holler.  
I hope you come back again soon for I have plans to share many new scrapbook pages with you.
I also have a couple of Facebook Pages where I share digi-scrapping, and much more!


Thank you :)
