For this challenge create a page that shows your emotion. Only rule is the page has to have journaling. If the journaling is personal you can cover it up when posting the page.
This can be a page on anything from
working for the first time with kiddo's in daycare
The love for your children/DH
loss of a pet
really anything that shows emotion

Tia, thank you for posting this challenge. I need to do a page about returning to work...it'll be therapy for me. Your pages have all brought tears to my eyes. Pages journaled with emotion are so wonderful.

This one was a hard one to put in writing. Thank you for the challenge! This is my beautiful sister who passed away unexpectedly before her son, Graden, turned a month old. He is now 3 1/2 yrs old.
The journaling reads, "I thought of you today when Akira started singing. I began to wonder if you gave her your beautiful voice to share. I thought of you today remembering when Graden shared a poop joke with dad and wondering if you gave him your sense of humor. I thought of you today when Hailey came into the house wearing your old basketball jacket and remembering when you used to wear it. I thought of you today when I noticed Taelynn’s hair starting to curl in the back and wondered if she will have the same hair as you. I thought of you today when Journi was just standing there with a devilish twinkle in her eye. I wish they all could've known you. I keep thinking of you daily, remembering all the things we did together and what would you be doing today if you were still here. Would you be raising Graden any differently? Would we still be painting the town red or taking family vacations together? Our wish came true. We finally have kids close to the same age who will grow up together, play together, and be close to each other. I just wish you were here to share these moments. I know you’re proud of all of us. I just wish you were still here to share thoughts, secrets, and advice with. I want to hear you laugh again. You used to crack me up like no other. Brendan has picked that up from you, thank God. I especially think of you when one of the kids does something I know you would’ve done and I need your input. I really wish you were here. I miss you."

DD Twins: 8/4/09 @ 35 Wks - No NICU, woot!
Trina, I love how you took a pic of the for sale sign and posted your feelings about waiting on the house. We are also in the waiting mode so I feel your pain.
Beertje What a beautiful page! Thanks for sharing such personal journaling. As much as I love doing fun and happy pages I also like to scrap the moments in my life that I never want to forget. You did a great job.
Tracy, I agree - beautiful page and even more beautiful journaling.
Ah back to scrapping. I knew I wanted to scrap the photos of our embryos but just hadn't felt the right timing. So thanks for this challenge.
I think I'm going to stickle the rest of the title but I'm just not sure. I didn't want to do to much with this layout because I loved the paper so it is very simple and just for me to preserve the memory of these babies. I'll post the journaling tomorrow hopefully.
