I have been delinquent! After returning home from a great river cruise through Germany the first week of December, I felt a little panic getting ready for Christmas. This Christmas was special because we were able to have all of our children and spouses home for a week. We planned many fun things including a trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and thoroughly enjoyed each others company.
On Jan. 4th, my sister-in-law went into the hospital for a stem cell transplant and I made daily trips to the hospital to spend time with her and to keep her walking the halls! She made it through the procedure incredibly well and was out of the hospital 2 1/2 weeks later. She is such a trooper! Since that time I have been going up to West Haven (west of Ogden) to help with her care. She is doing so well and hopefully this will prevent further chemo treatments for multiple myeloma for years. Cancer just seems to be so prevalent. Having had a son go through cancer I was sympathetic to some of the things she has gone through. She is amazing and so strong. She hopes to live at least another 15 years so she can watch her grandchildren grow and hopefully see a few more brought to this earth.
Here are two Valentine cards and a thank you card to start off this New Year. My son, Brandon, is also helping me to start a monthly card kit that will have everything to make 4 different cards including envelopes and pictures of completed cards. All that will be required by the customer will be ink for distressing, adhesive, glue dots and foam dots. What a great way to show your love to others!!! Hopefully the first 4 will be posted in the next day. (I wish I was better at this computer stuff!)
