July 1, 2016
The day began like any other lazy, summer day. I was sipping my hot tea, reading my Bible, just enjoying life. Within minutes, my life was turned upside down! The text message from my daughter- in- law...there had been an accident, a fall, 4 skull fractures, cerebral hemorrhage ...my oldest son was being rushed into life saving surgery...a craniotomy no less...and prayers, prayers, prayers. All I can say is a miracle took place and after only 6 days...he is home! He has to let his brain/ and body rest and heal...for at least 2 more months, but we are so thankful! Please see my offer on my "Greatest Love Letter 'Page for a free booklet. My family and I had peace within the storm of life, and I want to make sure you have it too. By the way, you meet some of the kindest people in surgical and ICU waiting rooms! The family of the man (whose surgery got delayed by 5 hours because of my son's surgery) were so sweet. We all became family in those waiting rooms, talking and praying together.
I had many letters to attend to when I arrived home! I was able to do some letter writing while out of town, but I had 2 little munchkins with high energy needing attention on the home front. So the letter writing had to be done in small batches of time.
This lovely parcel was awaiting my return home, about a week after the accident. Look at all of this gorgeousness! The amazing pen and ink art work, and the beautiful patriotic stamps! Thank you Sharon! I just mailed off a letter to you today!
Look at all the goodies that she packed into the parcel...not to mention a wonderfully LONG , newsy , chatty letter. I loved all of the paper ephemera, vintage theme, and the super cool patriotic tag! She is a gifted card maker, if you are interested in hand made cards, you can visit her Etsy Store here.
I have more posts coming! I have been busy with all of my letter writing and crafting away! But , I just wanted to remind you. Slow down. Smell the roses or in this case, the wild flowers that have been somehow thriving in my absence all summer long.
I'm glad I decided to go with wild flowers this year, because I knew I was going to be on the road most of the summer, and as you can see they are thriving even without me lifting a finger. (Yes, yes, I see the weeds too!). I have much to be thankful for, like these little flowers, I was well taken care of when one of life's storms hit. (Matthew 6:25-34).
I will be on the road for another two weeks, but I hope to have posts up and running in my absence. Happy letter writing everyone!
