A Thank You Scrapbook Page

Sometimes I feel so sad that I have no new photos to scrap of my girls. Slowly, I've realized that once in a while I get the opportunity to scrap new things related to my daughters that have died. This layout is a great example of how you can continue to scrap and make memories that involve your child even if you have no new photos of your child.
One of my daughters' nurses (and my good friend) sent me flowers last Mother's Day. That was such a kind and caring thing to do and it meant sooo much to me. It was the first Mother's Day since Bree died (5 months after) and the third since Chloee died. I was having a horrible time of it and grief was overpowering me. Then these flowers came and it was like I just knew that Lisa was acting in behalf of my girls. I felt like they were able to tell me they loved me because of Lisa's thoughtfulness. I will never forget that Mother's Day and I will never forget my good friend and what a difference her flowers made.
