I have noticed that as I get older my memory is not as sharp as I would like it to be. Things that I thought I would never, I mean ever forget seem to get blurred over time. My recall is not as sharp as it once was.
Has that happened to you?
Well, I’ve found that as I scrapbook it helps me to recall the story behind the picture…it may be because I add little notes or key words. Or it could be because I am spending time thinking about the event as I glue my pictures on the page.
Whatever the reason it helps to visit with my scrapbooks often. Scrapbooking can be a real source of joy. I laugh as I look at the silly pictures or recall a misadventure. I’ve found that it has helped me to feel and look younger even though my memory tries to convince me otherwise.
But I am holding out. I believe that as I scrapbook it will jumpstart my memory and I will once again have the memory of a 20 something year old.
