Thanks so much for popping in today. I just wanted to say sorry for being Missing In Action, but things have been a little crazy lately. My hubby is in recovery and was off work for a while. The poor guy is sick with a terrible flu virus right now, which has put him back some in recovering and getting back to work at full capacity. Also, my Dad had a heart attack about 3 weeks ago. He is home now but still not feeling the greatest. He still is dealing with complications from medications and so forth. So it has been a different sort of time. And if you are of the praying sort, please pray for both my Dad and hubby. These guys are pretty special to this gal and I hate seeing them like this. So any prayers on their behalf would be appreciated. 

I trust that you and yours are doing well. Remember that no one knows what tomorrow will hold for each of us, so love a little deeper, listen a little more intently, and appreciate each moment.

Your card is amazing, Dana! I really like how you layered the images, and your fabulous coloring. I am so very sorry to hear about the health challenges that your hubby and dad have been dealing with, sweetie! I am praying for both of them, and for you, too, of course! It can be so hard to be strong when the ones you love are hurting. May God lift you up during this tough time. Hugs!
