I receive a lot of emails and read a lot of comments that really touch me, really resonate with me, really hit home. And once in a while I feel prompted to share one with you because I have a feeling that it will really touch someone, really resonate with someone, really hit home for someone who reads it. Today I share with you (always with permission), this letter from Kelly in California.
I just wanted to tell you thank you for creating the idea of Project Life. This is year number two for me. I love that the project is able to tell the little stories that I probably would never scrapbook. I’m using the POTD format and loving it.
But, the reason for my thank you …
My mom recently passed away in December. This has been a really difficult time for me. But, thankfully, due to my Project Life I had my sister snap a quick picture of my mom and I when we traveled to San Francisco for a doctor’s appointment with her specialist. My mom has never liked having her picture taken. But she knew about my Project Life and went along with me for one quick picture. Exactly a month later she was gone. I had no idea how much this picture would mean to me when I took it for my Project Life. It’s the only recent picture I have of the two of us together. I will treasure it forever.
So thank you. Thank you for reminding us to capture the little things in life. Sometimes those things that we think are little turn out to be very important.
