Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!

A small part of scrapbooking for me is communication.
I'm sure many of you will relate.
I wake up in middle of the night.
I'm thinking about how much I appreciate and love this person.
I want to let them know how I feel.
It would be a little awkward to call that someone up and say...
Hey! Was thinking about you last night.
I love you a whole lot.
You are so beautiful.
You make my son so happy.
All of  kids adore you.
My mother adores you.
My grandchildren are crazy about you.
Your friends love you.
Your friend's parents love you.
Your husband's friends love you.
Your boss loves you.
(I'm not making it up. I've been told...)
You have a glorious smile.
The food you make has gained a reputation.
You're smart.
You're kind.
You're fun to be with.
You have beautiful teeth.
(OK, that's just my personal craziness. 
I love beautiful white teeth.)
I think after I say this there probably would be an uncomfortable laugh.
And then I could say,
All right, have a nice day.
She would hang up the phone
and say to her husband
You're mother is so weird!
(in a good way)
Instead of saying all that I just make a layout.
I think that says everything and more.
It says I've been thinking about you.
It's permanent.
It's witness.
It's forever.

The journaling is from the TOMS 2012 catalogue.
It took me all day to think about how to say it just right.

(SIDE NOTE: I asked my youngest teenager what to write.
Her response was
for a special needs family!)

“There's no way I could pay you back but my plan is to show you that I understand, you are appreciated”

I don't know who this guy is, but I feel what he said...
