You may be out of my sight... but never out of my mind...

Can you miss your child every minute she's not with you?
There is something about this one in particular that makes me miss her alot.
Maybe it's her energy...
her passion
her joy
her ability to move forward,
at a pace that most of us cannot maintain,
that I find so intriguing.
She is a walking box of crayons.
The biggest box of colors you could find.
It's a burden to be given that kind of charisma.
It's powerful.
It's awesome to watch her compete
with herself.
I think this girl does exactly what Hashem wants her to.
She uses her G-d given gifts to
inspire and love.
So what do I do when I miss her?
I don't call.
She's really busy!
I pull out my stuff and do what I love best.
I remember.
I craft.
I document.

Do you want to join me?
Start by scraplifting.
I've shared the idea with you here.
Find a layout you love and make it your own.
It's a quick way to satisfy a strong desire to get it done.
The original layout is here.

If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden.  ~Claudia Ghandi
