Hi blogging friends. Well our two foot plus snow is gone. With warm temps, the sun coming
out, and rain all night and all morning, it has just disappeared. So ready for spring, even
though we have had a mild winter here.
On February 3rd, five girlfriends I went to school with met for lunch as we
do about every two months. One of the girls is a lifelong friend, and we worked
side by side in her Accounting business for 30 years before retiring. We finished
a lovely lunch and agreed we needed to get together again soon.
The next day, my best friends sister called me to tell me that while we
were enjoying a lovely lunch my friends house had a terrible fire and all
was lost. She had worked for ten years to get the house just like she wanted it
and at lunch that day, she remarked that she was just going to enjoy her garden (big
vegetable garden), her bees (she keeps bees for honey) and her chickens and rabbits.
Of course we were all devastated for her. It turns out that the battery in her
laptop computer had started the fire.
She celebrated a big birthday in January and had a big celebration. For a gift,
I had made 50 cards for her. She loved them and was so happy to get them.
Well, as I said, all was lost. So I am making more cards for her as she sorts through
all the paper work and deals with the insurance companies involved in
settling with her so she can move on. She is a strong woman,
but this has really rocked her world. None of us can image losing everything
we ever had in a lifetime, just like that.
So, I thought I would share some of them
with you as I go along.
I'm making cards that can be mailed for standard postage. I found this
cupcake image on Pinterest. The card is for her daughter for her birthday.
Her daughter is my Godchild, and she loves sunflowers. Word stamps are
by Kitchen Sink Stamps.
If you made it this far, thanks for listening.....
