Cards that really don't leave that warm, fuzzy, feeeling inside. Know what I mean? It's not the card itself, it's WHY you had to make the card.
A friend of mine, from work, just lost her Mom to Alzheimer's Disease. It was terrible to watch her, watch her Mom disappear. I mean, can you imagine, your Mom, who raised you, loves you, brings you joy, isn't able to recognize you one day? Isn't able to communicate or remember who she was married to, where she lived, what she did for a living or that you are her daughter?
Someone that was so vibrant in so many ways and then BAM within a couple of years, it's all gone. You don't even know if there is someone inside anymore. Are they just a shell? Can they hear me? Terrible, absolutely terrible.
I think of my parents and I am so blessed that they are mine. I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like without them. I love them. Absolutely adore them. Sigh...
Okay, let me show you this card...
My friend Dana came up with the layout and then I did my own thing with it (colors, etc). I love how it turned out but I hate that I had to make it. :(
WHAN, I am going to go. This post has made me sad & I don't want to be sad. I want to be glad, happy, excited, etc. So I am calling it quits for the night. I hope you all have a wonderful evening. I will see you tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by!
