Dang, this was a tough layout. Everything I did to it, I changed at least once before it was finished. The cardstock is altered to the point of being patterned paper. (I got to go outside and sling paint around :P) I cut out slits in my photo (yep, self timer pic) and slid the paint chip under so it wouldn't be overwhelming. The 'moment' in the bookplate was double embossed, and I used more fonts than I can count, lol
The journaling reads:
When the sticom Rosanne came to Nick at Nite, I heard repeatedly how bad it was. Naturally, I needed to know why. So I watched. First, a few episodes a week, then every night. But who could have known that this television show would give me an indispensible piece of wisdom.
In an episode near the end of the series, the Healeys have a baby girl. And in the plot, this baby nearly dies. The father of the wife takes her husband outside and says to him: I know it's hard. things are hard all the time, and when stuff like this happens, you just have to take it a moment at a time. First you take it second by second. Then minute by minute. Soon it's day by day. And eventually, you look back and say, you know, I got through that. I don't know how, but I did.
I remember hearing that and thinking, wow, that makes so much sense. Several months later my grandfather died. And although it was hard, I found myself saying, Bobbi, just take it second by second. Then minute by minute. Soon it's day by day. And eventually, you'll look back and say, you know, I got through that. I don't know how, but I did.
I've drawn strength from that simple phrase over and over again. Moment by moment. My mantra.
I'm sure that in that particular episode, Dan's phrasing is a little different, lol. But that's the part that stuck with me..and I felt like it was something I needed to scrap, in case I ever forgot.
