Finally, My Very Special Post. . . .

Hi everyone.

I've been wanting to do this post for so long but each time I started it, my words didn't seem right. I finally decided that no matter how I word this, you'll understand and hopefully appreciate it.

After my mom died June 30th, I started to receive the most wonderful cards in the mail from my Flickr and blogging friends. The pictures don't do any of these cards the justice they deserve. They are all so beautiful! I cherish every one of them. Each day I would open another card or two and get such a wonderful warm feeling. It was like each of you were giving me the hugs that I needed. I am so blessed to be a part of this community of crafters and I want to give all of you my sincere, heartfelt thank you! Your cards, caring words and lovely messages were so needed. Thank you, thank you, thank you. . .


From the top, down the left side they are from Nancy, Natalie, Dawn and Kelly. Down the right side, from Lin, Anne, Sally and Vera.



From the top, down the left side, they are from Alexandra, Arlene, Linda and Joy. Down the right side from Sue G. Virginia, Tiffany and Anita.

I know they are difficult to see, and I wish I could take individual pictures of each one, but I just don't have the time. Please know that I love all of them, and all of you too!

Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

Barb, first of all I am so sorry to hear about your mum, my heart is with you as you adjust to life without her. Your incredible warmth and kindness shines through your commenting and blogging, so it is not surprising you have received such a wonderful collection of cards and support. It is a reflection of you.
