Just a quick update about Beth. I got to visit her yesterday and she is not in great shape. She had a stroke and fell breaking her ankle. Her left arm is paralyzed and her neck is a bit too. however the first thing she said to me when I came in was how much she was enjoying the lovely cards she has received...they are the bright spot in her life right now. So thank you to everyone who has sent one to her...if you care to you can send her another as she will be at the hospital for a while longer until she is transfered to a rehab center.
Beth is a fighter, her brain seems sharp, her speech is very good and she is determined to get back to health and stamping. Bless her heart, she asked me to bring in a catalogue for her as she received a $50 gift and she is determined to buy something with it LOL. Keep her in your prayers please!
Apart from Beth one of our best friends is recovering from surgery, yesterday they received the wonderful news that there is no cancer involved and then last night was returned to hospital via ambulance when he developed a clot which traveled to his lung. He is a wonderful friend and we are so worried about him, again please keep him in your prayers.
To top it off we received some news ourselves which has us a bit shell shocked and reeling...but when we think of Beth and our best friend it puts everything in perspective and we realize we are doing just fine and will weather this storm.
So..I think I need a little stamping therapy this weekend and will try to get some fun time in and will share when I can!
Thanks again for sending the cards for Beth... they are all beautiful and what I was truly touched by was how you all wrote the sweetest notes to her..not just a line but a full card of well wishes...you are wonderful readers and I thank you!
