Isn't it amazing how a few cards, some fun techniques, and a blog can bring people together? Turning pen pals into friends, friends into sisters at heart... I am so happy I started this venture a year ago. Ooops... seems I missed my own blog-aversary!
I want to tell you all something you may already know... I believe that us crafters are the kindest, most caring ladies around. Although miles away, it is so uplifting to see how many of us will come together to help one another in anyway possible. We share laughter everyday as we read each other's funny stories on a daily basis, send cyber hugs and imaginary soup when one is sick. It's a most unique camaraderie I feel pulls us all close to each other.
There are times in our lives when we all feel down, we all have a tragic experience or a traumatic event. I have unfortunately experienced a great loss recently. Many of you may have known that I was expecting. I lost my baby this past weekend. It was very hard, depressing and I couldn't see the light. My husband emailed my DT members... to be more exact my friends. My friends all came together to help me with my blogs and my business in any which way they could. That is the most beautiful gift I have thus far received from friends I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting face to face yet... well some that is. I have had the pleasure of meeting some of my gal pals, while I hope to meet each and everyone I have come close to from this fun and wild blogging world.
Lisa braved the mountain and brought me these wonderful flowers! Aren't they just breath taking? I talk to them, it's too funny... I have never been a plant person, only because I am afraid of killing them... but I am going to keep these forever! Eventually scrapbooking them.
My kooky kids tried cheering my up with gifts as well... they know how much mommy loves socks. They asked my husband to take them to the mall while I rested, which is an hour and a half drive one way, to get these for me...
Gloria mailed me this wonderful card that will also go into my scrapbooks, the sentiment inside was beautiful... "When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure."
I wish I could fit all my gals at TBD, SBS and SBC in my scrapbooks as they all rallied up and helped anywhere and everywhere they could. Just the support, warm wishes and prayers I received from them and everyone else was just uplifting. I couldn't do it with out all of you girls! I look forward to an everlasting friendship with you all. You are all quality ladies and I will always want to be a part of you girls!
Christy Croll of Tiddly Inks, Carol of Stampotique, Lori Boyd, and just so many sent out wonderful supportive emails that helped me feel the love and friendship. Again ever lasting friendships!
Vicki thank you for being there and ready to talk should I need to, Lady B same goes for you... thank you for the offer of talking things out. I am so grateful for the offers.
Thank you all so much for all of your support. I can't say it enough! It is truly a blessing to know each and everyone of you! I am once again so grateful that our paths have crossed!
Lots of love and respect to you all,
