*Pebbles + American Crafts + a little thank you = ♥*
(snippet of one of my Pebbles + AC card)
It's a Pebbles Swap over at American Crafts blog today.
check out all the gorgeous cards by the AC team
using lovely Pebbles & American Crafts.
here's another little snippet of one of my cards:
to see both in full & what I used, check out the blog .
Also...I just wanted to say thank you.
to all of you for your sweet words about my dad.
he had a SERIOUS surgery yesterday that involved his heart...
it was the type of surgery you sit and wonder, during it's length...
will he be ok, will he pull through this, is this going to make things better...
well...God is GOOD and prayer is powerful.
he came through the surgery wonderfully and is in recovery.
this is the man who's loved me unconditionally for 42 years now.
as a little girl he's wiped my tears, hugged the blues away,
kissed my boo-boo's.
The man who as a young girl showed me the Way, the Truth & the Life
of our Lord and Savior.
The man who as an adult lady who's instilled in me valuable
advice, life lessons & love as big as our world.
He's a blessing to me. to ALL of us. My siblings, my family...everyone.
He's a bright light to all he encounters. Now I see where my kids get it.
He's got the most contagious personality. EVERYONE wants to know him.
That's been that way as long as I can remember.
as hard as it is to see the man who's taken care of you your entire
life so sick...
I know that because of his active, healthy lifestyle
(at 74 years old he STILL plays golf every day.)
he will pull through this 100 % soon.
but that was hard. harder than you can imagine.
he's such an important part of our lives...
please, if you're the praying kind, continue to lift him up.
I appreciate it so much and I KNOW my family does too.
here he is with my 2 kiddo's...
we love him with all our hearts and we're so thankful
that God protected him and made HIS heart better.
He's got a big recovery in front of him..
but he will be much better soon.
