So very true. Both of my grandparents were the same way. This must be where my Mother got her infamous saying. She always told us kids to.............(are you ready?).... Spit on it and wipe it in the grass.!! Can you believe I have never scrapped that saying before? I think I know what my next page will be!

Another one I made today - journal reads: "Strength wasn’t a childhood theme for me but one thing kept popping into my mind associated with the word: something both my parents (and Gran) told me about: they all agreed that while Hitler had many bad ideas, he also had some good ones, like the “Volkswagen” (car for the people) and “Kraft durch Freude” movement, which means “Strength through Joy”. An awareness of the fact that mind and body are connected, that is much more widespread nowadays, but was rather novel then. They all talked a lot about the fun they had on outings and holidays with their local KDF groups.

For strength I chose these photos of my cousin and I after a freak accident at the beach one year. We were playing on a log near the edge of the surf one spring and a sneaker wave caught us and about 20 other people off guard. I was facing the ocean at the time and was able to dive in, but my cousin was facing the beach and was pinned under the log. She broke her leg, arm, pelvis and bruised her liver and kidney. It was a very scary time and even though the beach is my favorite place to be, I never turn my back on it.

That's so scary. I am very aware of the ocean's danger. I almost drowned when I was younger so I am always alert. I don't fear the ocean, just cautious.

This was a great card. Thanks for sharing.
