Saying goodbye for a while....

Saying goodbye for a while....

This has not been a great week. My precious Mother in Law had a stroke early Friday and passed away on Monday morning. We have made either 4 or 5 trips to the southern coast, about 200 miles each way in the last two weeks. With that being said I am scheduled for surgery on my back on the 28th and will not be able to sit and make cards for a while.

I seem to have lost the spark to do them right now. My emotions are so raw that it hurts to think...all I want to do is cry.

Please send your thoughts and prayers to my dear husband and throw one in for me too!!! Love to my online family and friends....
