Today over on My Year as a Poet blog, I've written a poet saying thank you to someone who is no longer in my life. It made me think on Crafty ways to say thank you.
- Is there someone in your life today that you need to take a step back and thank?
- Is there someone no longer in your life that you wish you could say thank you to? Have they drifted away? Left in a blaze of glory? Or unfortunately passed away?
- Is it a parent, lover, child, friend? Or even a pet?
Project of the Day - Be arty, 'writey' or crafty and create your own special scrapbook or journal page, thanking that person. Compose it in your own way - add photos, collage pictures, draw, or even write a letter to the person. Tell them how you feel about having them in your life. Why they are so important to you. How they changed you. Why you miss them.
I know that this might be a bit of a painful idea, but it might exercise a few demons you've held onto. Or it might open your eyes to how important someone is to you.
Don't worry about what you end up writing, you don't need to show anyone. You can give it to the person on the page, or keep it to yourself. Remember crafting doesn't have to be for other people. It's all about your own personal choice. YOU are the only one who can say what is the right thing to do, and only YOU knows what is in your heart and mind.
