Story Scrapbook Challenge: Words

This month’s challenge will be a good one, it’s about words.  Do you have a quotation that has served you well, words that you live by?  Have you received a piece of sage advice that is something you reflect on often?  Is there a lyric from a song that particularly touches you?  Do you have a mantra that you say over and over?  Is there a passage in a book, perhaps even the Bible that you hold dear and call on time after time?  Is there a particular speech that has hit the spot and changed your life?

I want you to scrap that quote, lyric, passage, words – and also tell us the story as to why.  Why are those words so meaningful and important to you?  Why do they resonate?  Why do you hold them close?

I absolutely cannot wait to see what this challenge brings because I have been spoilt for choice by the Creative Team.
