This year instead of receiving gifts from the team for Christmas, Brenda asked if we would make a donation with her to the Adopt-a-Family program through the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington. There are still a number of families and independent youth in our community who need donors this holiday season. Last year 2,527 children and youth received gifts tailored to their wants and needs. As of yesterday 53 families were still waiting for donors! This experience has certainly put our hearts into the spirit and magic of Christmas. Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference. @ChildrensFdnGW … Tis the season ! #cfgwadoptafamily#memorymakers#decembertoremember#guelph#guelphphysiotherapy#guelphmassagetherapy#keepmoving#givingyouthefreedomtomove
As I came up on this, immediately I thought how wonderful to be remember, missed, loved hard, maybe even...irreplaceable.
Then I thought, in a world of millions, we are known by so very few, in a fleeting moment of this thing called “time”, ones life’s time. Remembered by less, no one knows your name, who you are, who you were, eventually forgotten by all, not known by any.
Those cars, just keep driving...passing...by, day after day and night after night.
This thing we call “time” passing, you by.
Important, as you think.
You matter, to some. Memories, like dust settling on a dirt road.
Memory makers, we are. #death#life#blackandwhite#sit#memorymakers#whoareyou#howyouseeit#stayhumble#begrateful

Mum’s prints created when she was just 6 months old....and now we are back to do her son’s prints.👩👦 We are proud to have been making keepsakes for so long now that we are being invited back by families to meet the next generation of little ones. 😊
Today Memory Makers Print Taker Naomi visited a family at home who wanted to add to their growing family set of framed imprints.
Each little one has had their foot & hand print taken at 6months.
Every one of these individual and family sets of framed imprints has been professionally created by Memory Makers.
Naomi is a Memory Makers Print Taker based in Lancashire. Just one of team of Memory Makers Print Takers available for Home Visits across the UK.

Mommy got a (first) hand-written love note.
Gramma & Grampa got a song specially recorded for them.
Vinnie got a can of catfood given with the words bon appétit!
And LoLo got her favorite 6-second hug. #iamaluckylolo
There is a beautiful harmony in giving and getting.
And if you start children out with what they know, and can feel, and experience, well, you’ve opened a pretty big door for them.
Happy Giving Tuesday my lovelies! LoLo loves you!
Day 2 on our advent calendar was build a gingerbread house! We had some engineering errors and had to hot glue it, then SOMEONE wanted to eat all the candy, but all in all we finished it. The 2019 Ellenz gingerbread house. The feet may be chewed off our gingerbread people but she’s all there in all her glory.
Hey Girl!! What are some of the things you will do this month to make memories?
There is so much going on during this time of year!! So much to do, so many places to go, so many things to buy.......SLOW DOWN!! I found that the best gift that I could give my children was a well rested, fully present, all in, happy, full of life, full of love, full of fun...me!! Take care of yourself momma! And in all of this hustle and bustle.....remember to make memories!! 5 years from now, (or even next year) they may not remember the AirPods or latest game...but they will remember going sledding down a hill (even if it’s on a cardboard🤷🏽♀️) or riding around singing in the car and looking at all the lights, or baking cookies for yourselves and the neighbors, or laughing so hard their stomach hurts, or singing Christmas Carols at the Nursing Home, or reading the Story of the First ‘real’ Christmas....every year.
And when you do get tired....(and you will get tired!)...learn to rest, not quit!!
You can do this mamma! Hang in there!! #HeyGirl #MemoryMakers #Mom#momlife#singlemom

Twinkle lights complete me😂 This is the earliest we've ever put up a tree and I'm a little giddy about it. The glow is pure joy:) And a little joy is needed around here;) Apparently, I'm super annoying...at least to my teenage daughters🙈 I'm blaming hormones on both sides. I know I'm doing something right because I remember my mom annoying me at this age too. It's a rite of passage😂 Scroll over to see the looks on their faces🤣👊🙄💓 #memorymakers#christmasdecor#oholynight#christmastree#mygirls
