42 pages so far.
Each one decorated with beautiful paper, each with a title and a space for a photo or two.
This is my Journey Book.
I called it that because I found a beautiful metallic plaque in the Times to Remember scrapbook store in Hershey PA. It simply reads "Journey." That's on the cover.
It's not a record of the things I've done so far in my life. It's a map of where I hope to go on the journey that remains.
Some of the pages represent big dreams...Open a bookstore.
Some are places I want to go ....Visit Egypt.
Some are things at home...Create my perfect bedroom
Some are outside...Find out what happened to Great Aunt Blanche
Some are worldly...Buy a small house
Some are spiritual...Become a chaplain
And a few are deep in my heart ...Find true and lasting love
But all of them, big and small, relatively easy to obtain, and much more complex, have become a part of my roadmap for the time ahead.
As I go through time, more pages will be added.
I may not achieve them all. Or I may someday have a photo on each and every page.
Whatever the outcome, holding a book of dreams in my hands is a wonderful feeling.
