52 Stories – Number Forty Four – This I Know

Happy Wednesday!

This story is one of those that I aspire to tell. It’s not about the photo, it’s about a lesson taught, learnt and hopefully remembered.

Don’t get me wrong I love telling the everyday stories that relate directly to the picture, the who, what, where, when and why stories. But happening upon one of the less tangible ones makes me happy.

This I Know

Here is the story –

It first struck me, in 2014 when we were riding on that cable car, that when you travel with a child you have to become something you might not usually be. BRAVE. That journey over the River Thames scared me silly but I couldn’t let it show. I had to be brave and pretend all was calm, all was well. It struck me this last visit to London in the same way and I realise that this is a gift. I know that if I can do it with her I any do it anytime. That is something powerful to remember, something good to remember and hold on to. Thanks H.

Have I got the story down? Would I add anything more?

I mentioned last week that I keep a ‘photos to scrap’ album. Somewhere to pop pictures that I love and know I want to use in layouts. I may not have a story in mind I just know I adore the photograph so I keep it to one side. Hmm… I have rather a lot of these!

This photo of me and her went perfectly with my story. I could have a different story with it highlighting the trip we were on or our relationship but I’m glad I used it here. I think it works well.

Overall apart from some dreadful typos and missing words in my typed paragraph (I blame the typewriter…) I love my story and wouldn’t add anything to it.


52 stories is a series (or adventure) in my story telling. Can I get the whole story onto a layout? Am I telling the stories I want to tell? Read the inspiration post here.
