Julie has taken on the job of scrap booking all the cards and notes amm and our family received since her diagnosis. When we were in Calgary last week Julie gave me the first completed scrap book. It’s red and it’s wonderful. She has done such an amazing job compiling everything, complete with stickers…and butterflies.

I sat down at our kitchen table and slowly flipped through it. I had a rush of memories come to me, of visitors and meals brought to us and various flower arrangements. Memories I hadn’t thought of for months. So I am happy that the card scrap booking is fulfilling its purpose. And I thought of how in 10 years from now, amm’s grand-daughters will flip through the scrap books too, and see how many wonderful friends amm had and how they supported her and her family when it was needed most.
