I'm a wee bit down from my previous post.
I really wanted to acknowledge Abby the rat's condition (Amanda asked if I was going to let you know, since Abby was pictured on my very first post).
I thought doing it BEFORE she died would be easier for me.
It's still sad and painful.
One day I'll let Amanda read it, when she asks again.
But, for now, I thought a cheerful card to display would help.
It would cheer me up look at it, anyway.
Crafting and focusing on blessings is positive for me.
It's my coping mechanism.
We've got a wonderful youth pastor and his wife to thank.
They go over and beyond for our church's teens.
Recently they gave up their WHOLE DAY to take them to a theme park that was 3 hours away.
How many people you know would step up to do that?
I can barely stay awake the whole day AT HOME, let alone drive for 3 hours; spend the day at a theme park; drive back 3 hours.
I was thinking of the grownups that ENTIRE day.
I prayed for them, that God would give them strength. ;)
My two older girls got to go, and they had a blast.
It's not much, but it's the least I could do.
Embellish's Challenge colors are gorgeous.
I was so excited to see the first two colors.
I had the butterfly frame sitting on the pink rectangle piece for a week or so.
I really liked the combo and was hoping to use it soon!
The Sweet Stop's 120 sketch also made me hopeful. ;)
Thanks for stopping in to take a peek. ;)
