Sunday Storytelling – She Met Her Man

I’ve been reading Sian’s Storytelling Sunday for a while now, and thinking that I should join in. This time I’ve been prompted to join in by a sad event – my Granny passed away just over a week ago. Today we’re going to be battling our way through snowy East England to get to her funeral tomorrow morning. And because one of the reasons I’m thankful that I discovered scrapbooking is that it encouraged me to collect my grandparents stories, I thought I’d share one of them with you today, in her memory:

Granny told me this story a few years ago, when I’d just started scrapbooking, and I thought it was so sweet that she used to gaze dreamily at my Grandad through the canteen window before they met. I’ll always remember the look on her face when she told me about it – I could see that she could remember it clearly and was treasuring the memory. I’m glad I’ve made a page about it so that I, and future generations, can treasure the memory too.

Bye Granny. I’ll miss you.

  1. Your page and this post prove that it is at times of loss that memories, especially those that have been preserved and celebrated on scrapbook pages, become most precious. I wish you many comforting memories during this sad time.
