Good morning! I've been feeling a lot better lately - it really does help when you make yourself do things besides sitting around thinking about all of the bad stuff... because there's always going to be "bad stuff". I'm not the kind of person who normally lets it get to me. But I guess I'm only human. Anyway, Jeremy's dad finished his last radiation treatment on Monday. He'll continue to feel the effects for a while - the radiation continues to burn even after it's done. It's heartbreaking, actually, but worth it if it saves his life. I've been keeping in touch with him via text messages, since he can't really speak (throat cancer). I haven't spoken to my mom in a few days, but my step-dad says she's not great. Not terrible, but not great. The arm just doesn't want to heal - most likely because she doesn't want to sit freaking still. She told me that she told the doctor if they want to operate on her again, they're going to have to admit her and keep her for a few days because she just can't go home and sit on the couch and do nothing. She's crazy and stubborn and I wouldn't change her for the world. ;) But I am looking forward to going home and being there if she, or Jeremy's dad (or gram, or anyone else) needs me. :) Just trying to stay positive and remember that everything will work out the way it's supposed to.
Today I have a card to share that I'm going to enter into the following challenges:
I used "Light of Life" - a digi stamp by From the Heart/Designed2Delight. I printed it on some polka dot DP and then colored it with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits. This DP is from My Mind's Eye - I wasn't crazy about it until I needed to make a masculine birthday card - perfect! I added a button and kept it pretty simple, but I like the way it came out. Peace.
