This Day Did Not Come For Some Other

One of the things we are trying to teach our girls is that life is about choices
It is full of endless possibilities
It is full of opportunities
It is full decisions
We try to teach our girls that their are consequences to decisions
That with good choices come good outcomes
And, similarly, with bad choices come bad consequences
Sometimes the choices have outcomes that you can see, here and now
Other choices take time to come to fruition
Sometimes you can make a choice that will lead you to different choices
Sometimes other people’s choices will impact on what, or how, you choose
But you will always have a choice
We always tell our girls that no matter how many bad choices you make
You can always turn around and make a good choice
We also tell our girls that no matter what choice they make we will always love them
and will always be here for them
Sometimes we take for granted the freedom that we have to make choices
Sometimes we get swept up in life and before we know it we are at a destination that is unfamiliar
Somewhere that we weren’t excepting to be
I want our girls to see what is coming
I want them to make good choices so they can be all they are meant to be


So this page was made with all of this in mind

I cut up a 7Gypsies mini ephemera card
The bike… is a Crate Restoration rubon

no journaling, as such
Because I think this just says everything I wanted to say
