Legacy - leg·a·cy [leg-uh-see] plural -cies.
anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor: the legacy of ancient Rome.
How in the world do you create one of those!? Sounds hard – doesn’t it?! It’s not – really! Scrapbooks are the perfect place to record and hand down your own legacy.
How many times do you tell your children things –not just “take out the trash” types of things but really important things. If your kids are like mine then you know that no matter how many times you tell then something they may not be hearing it. Even though my boys hear my words I know they’re not yet of the age to truly understand or appreciate some of them. With my hopes and wishes for them safely preserved in my scrapbooks I take comfort knowing that they’ll always be there – waiting to be read when my boys are ready. Our scrapbooks are filled with family stories, our traditions and history. They’re also filled with photos…lots of photos!
There is a great interview with Rhonda Anderson, the co-founder of Creative Memories, on the Blissfully Domestic blog. She talks about creating a legacy, scrapbooking and her faith filled life.
