Fear ***ALL ABOUT ME****

SECOND POST TODAY, SCROLL DOWN FOR SKETCHES IN THYME REVEAL

Super Exciting news that I have been waiting for such a long time to tell you all. We our Blog at All About Me got published in ScrapStreet check out the Blog Bay Article, this is so exciting.

We have an amazing Sponsor this month. COUTURE CARDSTOCK So, if you have ever thought of playing along with us this is the challenge to do so. They are giving away some of their NEW line of cardstock as the prize of the month. We are getting to debut this fabulous, new, scrumptious stuff from Couture Cardstock.

Our Challenge this week is FEAR...I have quite a bit of those, but decided to go with this. Now hope I get to see a lot of you playing along.





Here is what I had to say about what being in this DT mean to me.

What being on this team means to you: Since I was a little girl I would sit with my aunts and grand aunts to learn about our family. Because of that I am able to write and/or journal many stories of my ancestors. The opportunity this challenge brings to me, it’s leaving a little piece of who I am to my children, grandchildren and so on. If it were not for “It’s All About Me”, I would only scrap about my children. I want them to know who I am.

Journaling: One of my greatest fears is not to be around to raise my children. I don’t think it’s a fear of death, as my faith is strong enough that I know that death is not the end but the beginning of eternal life. My fear is dying and leaving my kids before they become adults is an everyday fear. I’m afraid what their lives would be like being raised by their fathers and stepmothers, because life goes, I don’t expect Stan to stay alone and my other kids have a step mom already. I don’t want to miss anything in their lives. I want to see them all graduate from College see them become man and woman. I pray every night, to give me health and life until they all at a minimum graduate from High School, I know, I need to also stay healthy and that is up to me, I have taken many steps into achieving a healthier life style to be around for a long time.
