Hope This Helps a Bit...



It has been quite awhile since I have posted. My father-in-law has been in the hospital and yesterday he was put into Hospice. This has been such an emotional roller coaster. My husband's family is very close and they are just beside themselves. Heather made this image for me a couple of weeks ago and it brought tears to my eyes!! She has captured my kiddos perfectly. It was such a nice surprise. I have been very blessed to have her in my life... thanks again!! I am going to send this to my MIL to try to put a smile on her face. I used the Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch for this card. I hope you have a nice weekend, we are just going to hang tight and pray for peace! Please keep my family in your prayers.

I can appreciate what your family is going through. I went through the same thing about six weeks ago and I am so sorry. I wish you the best. The image is darling and how sweet of Heather to make it for you. Heather is a very special lady. It is very touching. Thanks for joining us at SSW.

I am glad you enjoyed the image and it brought you a smile during this time.

My heart really goes out to you Jenn. I have experienced very few things like this and all when I was younger. My heart aches and I know that you are all just beyond overwhelmed, exhausted and beside yourselves. I wish there were something I could do to help. Prayers are all I can send, and I know how God works through prayer, so maybe that is the best thing I can send. It says where 2 or more are gathered in his name there he said he would be also. I know Stacy is praying and I am too. God will bring you all through this.
I love you and am here any time you need me.

I wish you and your family strength in coping with what you are going through. Heather is such a beautiful person and I love her image. This is so special and what a treasure. I love your card. I've only done one easel card but seem to like everyone else's better. Your design is wonderful and cheerful - I do wish you and your husband's family the best through such a stressful situation. Thanks for joining us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday! ;)
