My most treasured handmade item


I guess it is not your traditional handmade item, but it is my all time favorite: a journal my mom has kept for me, and only me, since I was about 2 years old. Each of my brothers and sisters have one, and my mom let us read them when we were interested. We read our own, each others. I remember laughing and crying at most of the entries. I absolutely LOVE that my mom did this for us.
And I have kept one for each of my kids since basically the day we found out we were pregnant. I read back through and it helps me remember just how great my kids are. And reading back through mine, it makes me remember just how much my mom really does, and always has loved me.
