Beautiful Rak

The past 2 weeks haven't been the greatest, we had 3 deaths happen in 10 days. One was a complete "shock", as the other 2 we knew it was just a matter of time, they were both in Hospice. I have been to 2 funerals in the past 3 days. The other will be in the mainland, so I won't be attending that one. Of course anyone would be feeling sad at this point, especially the one that came as a complete shock to the family. Went to check the mail yesterday and low & behold a great Surprise that sure did put a HUGE smile on my face! A beautiful, all in pink ,RAK from the sweet Camille. It made my day, and helped to lift my spirits up a bit. It was great timing Cami. Thanks so much, I absolutely love it all.
Please always tell your parents, children & other loved ones that you love them every chance you get. Life is so precious & can be so short!! Love you all ~ Denise


Look at all these amazing Beautiful Creations that Cami made! WOW, I will have fun with them all.


Thank you for all the well wishes for my bro-in-law who had surgery, he is doing fine, and even went to church on Sunday!!

What a pretty card! So sorry to hear all your bad news. I had a year like that last year. Glad you can find some comfort in crafting- it really helped me get through the past year.

Denise so sorry to hear about your grievances, we are just trying to put our lifes back together after my SIL death last month, that was a shock...I found that my friends on blogland really helped me through this and funnily enough I got a gift sent that week too, and found I could smile through the tears. I am thinking off you at this awful time and will pray for you and your family, the RAK is delightful and I am glad you received it at this terrible time..Huge Hugs Avril xxx

Sorry to hear about your recent loss. I totally understand how a little "something" in the mail lifts your spirits.

Cami said...

Denise, I was saddened to learn of all the gievances you've been going through and hope in time it eases the pain. Losing someone is never easy and only time heals. You are an Angel, sent to me, and I would like to think that the arrival of my RAK to you is because the Angels are watching over you. Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Cami
