hello card

I made this card using Stickerz from the Saying Hello Sentiments and the Funky Frames set.


If you haven't been to the store in awhile, you've gotta go check it out. Fabulous new stuff is being added all the time!

It's a bittersweet week around here. Meghan graduates from High School on Saturday (You go girl!). However, we found out yesterday that she is being shipped out to Navy Boot Camp about 5 weeks earlier than expected. She was set to leave on July 22nd, but she is now leaving on June 18th. In a little over a week. *gulp* *sniff* We had a nice cry fest before I headed off to work last night. lol 
My heart still hasn't adjusted to Kara being gone and now we are sending another bird out into the world. Two of our precious girls leaving home within months of each other, having a child at war, and having an ill child makes my heart feel like lead some days. I am just thankful that I am a strong woman and can see the big picture. It's going to be extra quiet around here with just the 3 birds we have left. I told them last night that I am grateful that we still have years before they leave. :) 

day by day... sometimes even hour by hour. One of the most important lessons I have learned in life. It's what keeps me going. That and coffee. lol

The sun has decided to grace us with her full presence today. It's been a very unseasonably cool, rainy and sunless Spring around here. I think I might take Ashlyn outside and work on schoolwork under one of our beautiful Maple trees if she's feeling up to it. Too bad I have to work tonight. lol Have a beautiful day!
