Like you, I have many many memories that would LOVE to erase from my mind. But on the other hand, I have TONS of memories that I long to hold on to for a lifetime. A recent afternoon spent with Lilly is one of them. Our days fly by so quickly and days turn into years. I know full well that the time I have with my children in the right here right now will soon fade into time that I’ll have with them as pre-teens, young adults and then they’ll be all grown up on me.
So I try my hardest to savor each and every moment that I have with them in these days. It’s rare that we don’t have a good time or smiles on our faces. But just the other day Lilly and I had an especially sweet time playing outside together…..just the two of us. Being the third child that’s not a luxury that she is often afforded. R and T had left to run a quick errand with daddy. Lilly LOVES to ride cars and I knew she would be disappointed that she didn’t get to go. So she and I put our shoes on and headed outside to do one of her all time favorite things. Swing on the swing set. This girl will swing FOREVER!!!
Ok…now on to a fun idea that may help to erase some unwanted memories….well, more like erasing a to-do list.
Grab some CUTE scrapbook paper….And trim it to fit in ANY picture frame. You can write on the glass of the frame with a dry erase marker. But instead of a frame, here is what I did with mine.
I trimmed my cute paper to fit in these little windows on the hutch in my office. I LOVE it!! It’s the perfect place for me to make a list of crafts that I want to accomplish, or write a Bible verse that I want to memorize or need to be encouraged by. I almost feel a little naughty by writing on the glass!! Brings a smile to my face every time I erase!
