My mother turned 70 this year. Seventy years of faithful service to her Lord and family. In honor of this milestone, my sisters and I decided to give her a memory scrapbook. Each of us, children and grandchildren, created a separate page of pictures, artwork, poetry, and memories — whatever we wanted to include to show our love and appreciation for Mom / Grandma. We compiled the pages into one scrapbook and presented the finished project to her last evening.
She was completely surprised, delighted, and, I believe, touched by the love and care that went into creating such a special gift for her. It was wonderful to see individual personalities shine through in the way the pages were created. Twenty-three pages of memories for Mom to treasure.
Here’s a sampling of a few of the pages.
Here is the story letter written by Allison, age 12:
Thank you, Lord for my wonderful mother!! Bless her “real good” this year!
