Thank you card


This is a card that I made for a very special person who has helped me tremendously since my daughters death. As most know, I moved my niece in with us last month to try and help get her life on track, but unfortunately I guess I wasn't very successful. This past Thursday she attempted suicide while I was at work. Fortunately we found her in time but she needs more help than I think I can give. So, my husband and I are looking for an inpatient program for her.

I would really appreciate any prayers that you can spare for Cassandra. I hope everyone had a wonderful mothers day!

  23. Your card is gorgeous. Thanks for leading us here from the Yahoo group! I was immediately drawn to your pic on your sidebar of you and your husband with your daughter that says You'll Miss her. Naturally I was curious and after scrolling thru your blog I read the story of your daughter's Car accident. Why the curiousity...I don't know, really, I guess I just wanted to know why such a young vibrant beautiful girl would be lost! I am so sorry for your loss and now with the going's on with your niece, you are someone who is in definite need of some love, hugs and encouraging words! Do u have a snail mail addy I could possibly send a card to? Your strength is amazing and your pictures, memories, scrapbook pages will keep her forever in your hearts! Your crafting is phenomenal. Keep it going. Anything that helps you breathe sometimes is worth it! Take Care.
