Can't believe it's been so long....

since my last posting.  Where has the time gone.  I know February was really bad for me (with losing my brother Doug) and although I'm much better with it now, it's been hard.  And my poor Mom, it's been very hard on her too.  She couldn't remember it for a while, and that stressed the rest of us, having to keep bringing it up so much.  She has a photo of Doug and his obit framed that she must walk by many times a day, and that has helped keep it fresh in her mind.  I almost wish we could just let her forget but she needs to know why she isn't hearing from him any more.  Every now and then she still comments when talking to me that she wonders why he hasn't called lately.  Little brother John is having a struggle too.  So its been pretty rough, but getting onto better now.

And I do have some absolutely wonderful news to report, and maybe that's partly why I'm getting more into the mood of getting back in control of things and writing here again!!

Anyway, my good news is that my oldest son and his wife are expecting a new baby boy just before Christmas.  And we are all over-joyed.  They've been married 10 years, and this is a long time coming!

I want to thank all of you that have stayed with me during this down-time, and I promise to get more and more cards shown.   Thanks for all you who have sent me cards and emails.  It's been wonderful.
I have still been making cards now and then, but maybe not as many, and I just haven't been putting any up here on my blog.  I'll have to go back through and see if I still have pictures of many of them.

Have a fantastic day!
