Good Morning..thinking of my friends today

Good morning to all of my friends in bloggyland.

I would like to take this time to reflect on the past week.

2 of my friends lost their dad/husband
1 of my club customers lost her mom and another had a baby that needed surgery.
1 of my dear blogging friends, Summer lost her dad to a battle with Cancer. Summer, I love you!

Dear ^Sweet Ethan^ lost his battle with Cancer.
I pray for him, his sister, Sierra, his mom, Amy and his cousin Kristen who I met through her blog, spreading the word about Ethan.
Dear Kristen, thank you for emailing me through all of this. I am taking Ethan's death hard.
I want to thank Audrey and Kim for checking on me with emails during this time and going through this as well.
I want to thank EVERYONE who made cards for dear Ethan.

I hurt for all of my friends for their losses.

I had a hospital procedure and though it was nothing serious it put me out of pocket for three days. I am just staring to feel back to normal and reality.

I want to express a "shout out" to my friend and customer KIM, who helped me through the physical pain I had yesterday. I also want to tell Kim, I am there for you too!

I think we are all "tight" in this Crafting World and I want to express my best wishes to two dear Crafters:
Monique is having her double Masectomy today and
Brenda from Bren's Designs is having hers tomorrow.
These women are both fighters and I know they will come through. Many prayers being sent their way.

I also have some VERY close people to me fighting Cancer right now and it sucks!

On a lighter note, I would like to send a "shout out" to my dear friend and customer, Ruth, better known as Cricoholic, whose humor never fails to make me laugh. Late last night she sent me a photo of her new Craft room paint color. She took a swatch of our Stampin' Up Garden Green to the paint store and now her room is SU Garden Green!! Got to love her! She is a true SU addict.

Oh and on a happy note, I would like to thank my customer Janie, for signing up under me as a new demonstrator. Good luck, Janie!

I have so many Sympathy cards to make today and one Birthday card for my best friend, Melanie and two get well cards for Monique and Brenda. Thinking about all the losses this week makes me so sad, but one thing about making cards is you can pour your LOVE into them and I will do just that!

Please have a nice day! :)

I would LOVE to hear what you are up to today! I hope it is a good one:)

My thoughts are with you Barb. The illness of our friends always weighs heavy but your are right about pouring your love and healing energy into every card we make for them. I always add reiki to my get well cards and, of course, my sympathy cards. I'm the only one who knows it's there but I can only hope it helps. hugs, eileen

I'm sorry Barb. You are so caring for others and I know although it is hard, you will create some beautiful cards for them to cherish. Just know your cyber friends are sending you warm hugs!!

Sending you BIG hugs

OH WOW!!! My Thoughts and PRAYERS go out to ALL those going thru a DIFFICULT TIME!!!!
YES,YES!!! I'm an SU ADDICT!!!! LOL I LOVE LOVE SU colors!!! Picking a paint color for the room was easier STAYING HOME and looking at the SU "COLOR COACH" than STANDING on your feet at the paint store for hours trying to decide what color under their awful lighting....its hard to explain the "LOOK" I got when I handed them a piece of cardstock and said match this....ROTFLOL....GOOD NEWS is with the craft space makeover...I HAVE MORE ROOM/SPACE FOR SU!!!!!! YYAAAHHHOOOO!!!!!!! Your the BEST OF THE BESTEST BARB!!

Hi, Barb! I am of course wishing and praying you feel better soon! I truly believe everyone feels that supporting and caring about you doesn't require any thanks at all -- just that you get back to being you!!!

I will continue to pray for all those you need help and comfort; we all can use some love and support at many times and we know you'll feel for us -- what a blessing friends like you can be.

Now, go take care of yourself!!! Let Go, Let God!!!

You all will be in my prayers!
