My Daughter's Memories

Good morning!!!

 Karen Taylor here today to share an altered book with lots Wan2Scrap™ goodness. I made this for my daughter, who like most mom's and daughters we have had our ups and downs in our relationship. Mother and daughter relationships are complex because the daughter looks to her mother as a role model of what a woman is. As she grows up and sees other woman who live their lives differently, she chooses between imitating her mother or other significant influences in her life. As an adolescent she may come to look down on her mother and think that other woman are much better.
Of course she is not a fully grown woman so she does not understand the challenges and choices that her mother faces. It is only when she herself becomes a woman that she can fully appreciate her mother.
 But through it all one thing has remains strong and that is LOVE. I want my daughter to have lots of memories in the future and remember how important it is to share those memories with those we love.
This is a fairly large book so I can only share some. I hope you enjoy.
Memory Altered Book: LOVE LOVE LOVE

Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.                                            

Memory... is the diary that we all carry about with us. ~Oscar Wilde

What we remember from childhood we remember forever - permanent ghosts, stamped, inked, imprinted, eternally seen. ~Cynthia Ozick 

All Grown Up

© Wilda Parker

You are all grown up as anyone can see.
A beautiful lady standing in front of me.
Spreading your wings and leaving the nest,
to see what’s out there for you at best.
Learning what works for you,
depends mostly upon yourself.
Trust in what you feel is right.
Always remember throughout your life,
I'll be here whenever you need it.
You're still my little girl,
even though you're an adult now.
You always be young to me
All grown up in others eyes.
Still young as ever to me and will always be loved.

mother's love for her child is like
nothing else in the world. It knows no
law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes
down remorselessly all that stands in its path.

~ Agatha Christie
