Because...

Because... I'm blonde (internally not externally) I need to post a retraction...
I posted yesterday that I had hit my #600 post... we'll we're about 40 away from that, because this is #561... not sure why I read 559 as 599 but, we'll just leave it at this... so sorry to get you (and myself) all excited but 561 isn't bad either.

I digress...

One of my favorite bloggers Karen Russell used to be in the biz of selling beautiful scrapbook materials. She would create, and then sell. One of her projects went something to the tune of 10 reasons. The pages would start out with the word Because... and you could build from there.

It's a good form of free flow writing, you just start out with Because... then write what's on your mind. I started with a few, and currently have a few pages worth. They make me smile, and the statements are so simple, but so meaningful.

♥Because ... cherish is more than a pretty word.
♥Because... God is so kind
♥Because... life is worth living
♥Because... faith isn't easy
♥Because... we're more than friends, we're sisters
♥Because...you pick me up when I'm feeling down
♥Because...life is better than fiction
♥Because...no one will ever replace you
♥Because...sometimes all you need is a smile

Someday I'd love to make a scrapbook to this tune... but we'll see if it ever happens based on the productivity of my scrap booking as of late - I haven't scrapped since April! (EEK!)

What would you fill in after Because...
