Just relaxin...

I needed some "me" time. I've been caring for those with the flu for over a week on top of my own health issues and now I'm nursing a sick husband! Though my head told me that I should spend the day catching up on homework assignments my heart told me to take out the stamps and enjoy myself! My heart won! I managed to complete all my preparations for my Holiday Card Stamp a Stack coming in November. Once I got going, there was no stopping me. I lifted these ideas and added my own twist - so i thought I would share a couple of them with you! Now - tomorrow really has to be a book breaking day!

Have a great weekend blogging friends.

There are days when

bubbling from us comes

the innocent child within,

who giggles at the little things

and wears a silly grin.

There are days when

melancholy comes to

visit for a while;

the mind feels tired, the body weak;

we have no strength to smile.

There are days whenjoy abundant

grabs a hold of you and me;

wraps us up in all it's splendor,

lifts us up and sets us free.

There are days when sorrow

wraps usin its cloak

of grief and fear,'

till our hearts ache to the breaking,

'till our eyes can't shed a tear.

There are days when

love bestows us

with its wonderment and light;

with its beauty and its mystery,

its power and its might.

And there are days when

life rewards us

and seems to make amends

by granting us a marvelous gift,

the precious gift of Friends.

I agree with the other comments -these are some of your best cards ever! Way to go! Hope everyone is well! Scott and I have been able to keep up with the homework pretty well since he's been home :-) And of course we love to read for hours at night when we should be sleeping...I've now got him on MY schedule so he's going to have a rough time when it's back to work. Hope Blaine's sickness doesn't last long. Give everyone a hug from me. Love you.
