And Then…along with the music
I used other creative arts and crafts as well-and still do. For me, creativity is a strength and this is the way I keep things fresh in my relationships. (It was how I kept teaching my children values and life lessons too. I taught them how to see things differently and look deeper.)
I took lots of photos of Larrie and I together because these were what sustained me whilst we were apart. Often whilst we were together, I didn’t get time to view them or do anything with them, but when I went home- I did. ( hence the video above)
Tip #2 ( #1 in earlier post) Keep the memories tangible. Make an album of photos, or “A Little Book Of Memories”- in this way, you are reliving it and fanning the flame till you meet again. Send it to your love.
Or share what is happening in YOUR world, so that they can be part of it too. This is good for keeping a healthy balance in your present life as well. Compile a visual album of the songs you shared.
Here’s the latest ‘little book’ I made for Larrie.
We couldn’t be together for Valentine’s Day, and as he had just come out to Australia, the Nov/Dec before, I used those experiences and made a special album of highlights.
Did I mention how much I love making books!
Come on, now.. share your story 🙂
