So much to be thankful for…

An update on my dear Mama! :)

I’m so grateful I got to spend some time with my parents during the holidays, and Mama and I got to have some fun, “just us girls” time, too!  Among the highlights was a wonderful lady who worked with us at Saffron in Vancouver, WA to help fit Mama for a prosthesis.  I cannot say enough wonderful things about how comfortable  and relaxed the process was, and how sensitive, gracious and helpful she was. I believe her name was Gloria–if I am in error, please forgive me.

Sushi for lunch (Only $1.35 per plate??!!! GET OUTTA TOWN!!!) and then some crafty shopping, followed by dinner  later in the evening with the boys at Gustav’s… Phenomenal eats, good times!!! I think we may have some new holiday traditions to adopt. ;)

Anyway, Mama is doing extremely well and has an amazing positive attitude and spirit that continues to make us marvel. She is taking medication for the next 5 years, and so far, it has not caused her any adverse side-effects, other than some initial dizziness, which has since disappeared.

She shared the box of treasured hand-made cards that so many of you had sent and we both got teary-eyed by the outpouring of positive thoughts, prayers, and wishes for good health… the personal stories that some of you were so kind to share… We’re kinda emotional, so I’ll admit we got a little verklempt… :) Mama says every day she pulls one out and re-reads it and presses it to her heart… She is still overwhelmed by the kindness of your cards and I assured her I would convey her–our–appreciation.

Thank you, from the bottom of our ever-so-grateful hearts.

JarGlobe

Another 5MQ, this time in white! Doncha’ just find those snow globes in a jar on Pinterest totally magical? I ADORE them! I’ve even made a few for my holiday decor *gasp*–mine are not elaborate, but they were pretty easy to whip up and I love how charming they are on the kitchen counter. I wish I had a fireplace mantle to display them… I’d make more… heh, heh, heh! *cheeky grin*

So, getting back to the card… I went “rogue” by die cutting SILVER leaves instead of green ones. Boy, talk ’bout livin’ on the edge, right?!  BAH HA HA HA HAAAA!!!

I know. Silly things like that totally crack me up… ! :)

Enjoy!

 

Happy Holidays!
