Who is the bestest buddy ever may you ask?
Why my good friend Dorcas! Surprise girlfriend!!
We have been friends like forever and been through a lot
together. We pretty much have a good time no matter what
we are doing, but, we especially love to craft together.
This past month has been a rough month with losing my
sick of hearing about it, imagine Dorcas who gets to deal with
me on a daily basis! She has been there for me no matter what!
There has been a lot of tears and plain crazy moments,
but she has not run away yet!
The day I came home, after being in NY for my Grandmother's
memorial, Dorcas came over to spend the day with me since it
was the first time being in the house after my cat died.
It was a rough day, but she made it special.
We went to Michael's, had lunch,
watched a movie, ate chocolate. Good friend stuff!
Before I have her totally barfing over all this mushy stuff I must
get on with it! I don't mean to leave any of my wonderful friends out.
Everybody has been very good to me. I appreciate
everybody's care & concern. I just had to thank her because
she puts up with a lot and goes out of her way for me!
Although me, making a card for Dorcas, is like feeding
a gourmet chef a hotdog!
It is the thought that counts though! LOL!
At least this card is all my own! No stealing today!
Thank You for lifting me up when I needed it most!
I will bore you with one more personal note!
When I came home from NY, my husband had
these pretty flowers waiting for me. They were a
much larger bouquet then. My first very selfish thought
was "REALLY, carnations is that all I'm worth is
carnations? I am grieving here, and am I not worth
roses?" Then I thought it through and realized we did
not have the money for roses and it is the thought
that counts. Well now I am eating those selfish thoughts
because 3 1/2 weeks later and these carnations
are still kicking! They have a few brown spots, and I
have had to cut them down, but roses would have died
