An Important Message from Mother to Daughter

Whether an only child or surrounded by siblings, it seems most of us have strong feelings and memories connected to that experience. That’s what made reading the stories in this week’s Logbook Weekly Challenge pages so interesting.

I especially enjoyed the journaling in today’s Layout of the Week by Sarah (sarahbhb), first because it’s so honest and heartfelt, and second, because it’s really interesting to me to get the behind-the-scenes view of how this particular mom’s choices relate to her concerns about how her daughter feels about those choices. That’s something we don’t seem to share very often and I’d be willing to bet, this daughter will appreciate hearing mom’s side of the story this way, if not now than perhaps when she’s a bit older and possibly a mother herself.

Plus how can you resist that photo?

"Only Child" by sarahbhb

This is a note to you from me… a note to an only child from me, a sister of many. I know growing up with so many siblings I often wondered what it would be like to be an only child. I just wanted to let you know that even though I have had these feelings, I never set out intentionally to make you an only child. I just wanted what I felt was best for our family and in the end that meant that our little family of three would remain just that. I know you long for siblings just as I longed to know what life would be without my siblings. I feel sometimes like I have given you the short end of the stick so to speak because I got to experience what it was like growing up in a large family and you will probably never know what it’s like to have siblings. I just really want you to know that I love you and want you to be happy, as I know you can be even as an only child and I truly hope you enjoy your life fully.

Congratulations to Sarah on having today’s Layout of the Week! She will receive 10 bonus points through our Real Deal Book Club Rewards Program.
