Question of the Day

At Scrap with V, its my turn to do the question of the day.....
Random questions, some about scrapping, some about life....
On Monday I added a second question, the bonus points question (Althought there isnt actually any points!!)

I have been listening to the new Nickelback Album....
Its a bit different to their first album, i find it much easier to listen to and the songs have more meaning....
One of their songs
"If today was your last day"
Listen and watch the video here

It asks us that question
"If today was your last day"
Would you call those friends you never see
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive old enemies
Would you find that one your dreaming off
Swear up and down to god above
Would you finally fall inlove
Say goodbye to yesterday
Live each moment like your last
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you had.......

So I asked that question?
What would you do if today was your last day?

Its a hard one isnt it....
But i kept coming back to just spending it doing what i do now each day when im not working.
I usually spent my most prescious time at home with my family
Just chewing the fat like we do most days.
It would be good if Gary, Kel and Zane were here too....
No panick, no trying to sqeeze stuff in, just relaxing and enjoying each others company...

It then led me back to my favorite hobby
Its a morbid thought..
But if something were to happen
I have it all written down, my whole life has been recorded for my family
How I feel about each person is recorded on a page that i have made with love
My whole history from my birth
my thoughts
my wishes
my loves
have all been recorded.

What a wonderful hobby scrapbooking is for this purpose
and what a wonderful gift to leave for future generations.
My kids wont ever have to wonder how i really felt about them
as its all been recorded
the good
the bad
and the ugly!!
Everything in truth!!!

I dont think there would be a bigger act of love for my family than to leave them these legacies if something ever did happen to me...

So, thats why I scrap!!

Funny how one song can trigger such deap and meaningful thoughts isnt it?
