Finished Happiness Box 2019’s Scrapbook

Power is back on, finally! It came back at 10:30 am, at least that’s when mom texted me, and at 11:30 am, my aunt lost power. We invited her to stay, but she declined and she should get her’s back soon. I’m grateful for the few days I spent with my aunt.

Since I decided to use the quarantine to work on the scrapbook for Happiness Box 2019, I’m happy to announce that I finished it last Saturday night! What usually takes me 9 months to complete, I was able to finish in 5. 😁

It’s about 75-80 pages, it’s huge! I decided to make a video to show it off a little. I would like to share it with you.
Unfortunately, I didn’t bring it to my aunt’s, but maybe next time. Sometimes I’m nervous about sharing my spiritual journey with my relatives, especially since I am still learning about Judaism. I did cook my aunt some Kosher food while I was there and she loved it, so maybe it wouldn’t be a big deal. My family loves me and want to see me happy; and I love my family too. We looked at old photographs and it gave me some ideas for future projects.
In a few days, I’ll share the final two months of lyric scrapbook pages. 😁

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I’m all verklempt after watching your video, dear friend! This is the first I have heard your voice since the time you narrated a video while wading in the water on Coney Island beach. Your voice is trance inducing and I mean that in a nice way. There’s a lot of caring and tenderness in your voice as you page through your HB 2019 scrapbook and fondly recall all those special moments, highlights and events. I dare say 2020 is a completely different kind of year, but we make our memories any way we can. Perhaps this year’s theme will be all about patience, flexibility, adjustment, endurance, bonding with parents and with online strangers via Zoom, establishing resourceful new habits, frugality, money saving and self analysis.

    It’s ironic that your aunt lost power at her house by the time yours was restored. I hope you get back up and running at 100% capacity very soon. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, dear friend JM!
