Scrap Therapy . . . .

I am scrapping this week with Lauren Reid .  She is running a new series on her blog called Therapy Scraps.

I hope you will participate, and share or not share, but tell the story.

When I started this layout about Madison's birth experience I wasn't sure what direction I was going to go.  I wondered about what my friends and family might think about my journaling.  Then I shared it with my sweet husband and got a hug, a nod and complete agreement with what I said.  It felt good to get some of this out - what has been bottled up for safe keeping within myself for many years.  If it changes the way you think about me, that is okay.  I didn't do this for you. I did it for me.
