I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted. It's been a busy week making and sending cards. I have a box of cards for Operation Write Home just about ready to be sent to Washington state. I am so honored to be supporting those soldiers who give so much each and every day to keep us safe.
I visited my mom this week. It's been a very long time since she's let me visit. When I'd call she'd say it wasn't a good time, or give some excuse as to why it wouldn't work. So I was thrilled to spend a few hours with her. Sarah and I went and inspected the grounds around her house. Sadly it is no where near where it should be. We asked if we could weed and cut down bushes that were very overgrown. She said no, it was her therapy.
I may just go back another time and just do it. She'd never know I was there. Most times she sits in her living room with curtains closed knitting her giant squares. The squares are donated to a group who stitches them together as blankets and hands them out to homeless people. She loves to do this and it keeps her busy.
We will continue to visit weekly and see how things progress. Sarah, Ben and Rachel are going to visit this week and see if grandchildren can convince her to allow them to weed her flower beds.:) Out of the mouths of babes.....Sarah suggested this.
Speaking of Sarah we have an appt. with a counselor to get her set up for Tri-C a local community college 5 minutes away. It's an exciting time for her.
This card was for today's Inspiration Challenge. Here is the inspiration for this card.
If you look closely you can see the birds. I didn't want the bird to blend in so I colored him in brown and gray Copic Markers.
THIS video to see how Kay made a card like this.
Here's a song by Hawk Nelson called, A Million Miles Away. See what you think.
Blessing of the Day: I listened to an hour of Rick Warren. He's currently doing a sermon on People Who Drive You Crazy. We all have people who push our buttons. These sermons help you deal with them.
Thank you for stopping by. Hopefully it won't take me so long to get back to this next time.
