All About You in 52, Question 21

Do you realize this is the half way mark? How incredible! I started out with one album, but know I'm moving everything to a three ring binder. I want everything in one book. How are you putting together you albums. Share with us in the comment section. I need inspiration!!

I am afraid of high bridges, other drivers (too many accidents) and the under tow of the ocean and lightning. We all have our fears. Some make us stronger and helps us work though them. Some immobilizes us. Nightmares are inherit to some of our fears. I dreamed for months about a red truck that had hit me and put me in the hospital and physical therapy for months. It took a while to want to drive again. I've quietly been hysterical as a friend was driving over a very high bridge while talking with her hands off the steering wheel. It is a part of us that we do not often talk about.

Question 21

What is One of Your Greatest Fears?

My answer


"It washes over me I watch her play. A longing to always be there, to watch her grow up to be a fine young lady with a family of her own. I want to jump on the trampoline with her, watch her school plays, see her first date. I want to watcher her walk down the aisle with her lifelong love. I wanted to hold her little girl. I want to be there for her like only a Grandmother can be. She's precious, totally precious . At times my heart breaks when I realize I won't always be there for my little girl.

I finished my very first, know what I'm doing beaded necklace. I did learn one thing that will always stay with me. Use seed beads in great moderation. I have to go vacuum up all the beads I lost or broke.
