it has been a difficult past few months.
we all know what it is like when you health becomes a major issue and the energy you used to have is no longer standing by.
i have not been stitching as much as i would like and haven't seem some of my dear friends for many months.
the thing that keeps me going beside family and knowing i have another 6 months of treatment if all goes as planned is my sweet dear friends.
i received a huge package the other day and couldn't remember what i had order or why.
i opened it to find...
don't you love the big eyed lady bug, pink nail polish, peppermint lip gloss, chocolate face mask, a cute napkin with a Valentine card, eye pillow that smells like lavender! plus so many cute little cards with such heart felt love. the red bird cage had chocolate hearts inside (yip i ate those, first) and the beautiful homemade bird with a button jar to perch on. plus an assortment of beautiful sampler cards from the National Trust.
remember never to give in to the pain or the exhaustion.
when you least expect it a smile can arrive in a box.
thank you to my incredible stitching/traveling friends...
Beth, Becky and Julie. your friendship makes each day a little easier, knowing you are on my side.
see you all soon.
