Dannah @ 10

Timi says, KAYA!

Journaling Reads (hidden tag under title):

Dearest Dannah,

How fast time flies! I can still remember the day you were born, 10 years ago. You were a very special baby girl being born prematurely (35 weeks). You stayed in the incubator for 12 days due to infection. Then there was this problem in your digestive system. Thank God you were not operated on. That would have given me so much pain.

Look at you today at 10…who would say that you had encountered those difficulties when you were still a baby? You grew up to be a smart, healthy, talented, generous and kind-hearted girl! Carry on with these traits. For sure these will help you achieve your goals in life. A reminder though, do not be too generous as you may be taken advantage of by not so good people around. I can see that you have a tendency to give everything you have even if it means nothing is left for you. A word of advice… keep a little something for yourself. It always pays when you do some things in moderation. It will bring me much pain when I see you get hurt.

Always remember that I love you so much. Big girl as you are today, I will always remember you as my sweet little baby, a survivor till the end.

About ME:
Married to Danny for 12 years and blessed with two wonderful kids, Jigs(12) and Dannah (10). A College Professor by profession, I have been teaching Crop Science at UP Los Banos for 14 years. I'm a member of the LB Scrapaholics with Cors, Liezl, Issa, Helga and Rita. It was in the year 2000 when I completed my very first scrapbook. It was a gift to my husband in celebration of his 30th Birthday, our 11th Valentine's Day together and our 5th Wedding Anniversary. My next project was my son's preschool years completed in 2002. To date, I have a total of 16 scrapbooks although it was just recently that I started using 12X12 papers and acid -free supplies. I'm fond of joining challenges because it helps me improve my craft. Challenges allow me to experiment and create designs I never thought I am capable of doing. I intend to continue with this hobby-turned-into a passion (or maybe obsession) even after my retirement years.

Hi Timi, you brought life to the black PPS and photo, simply by adding those red flower and fibers. Very striking. All the best to you and Dannah. I am sure she will read this years from now and heed your motherly advise.
