Time Heals

time has a way of healing a broken heart. we will never understand way god does all he does. he took chris home way too early, he had just turned 25. my son & daughter are missing a piece of their hearts. they both loved him so much. now, they are finding ways to honor him in life. my daughter is putting together a fund-raiser to help his family off set the funeral cost. i love my children , and i'm so proud of them, i hurt because they hurt even still at the ages of 24 & 22. a mothers love moves differently with our children as they age, don't you think? may god bless chris & his family, my children and all of us who love chris.
i have spent a few days finishing projects and making a few new ones. i've always felt that creating/crafting has a healing power. so, i sort of forced myself to get my hands on, head clear and heart mending. here are a few projects and i will be adding to my website. i would like to share a little happy news. a few weeks ago i sold my first item from my website. a sweet vintage tea cart. wow!! my first customer!! and i shipped the tea cart to up state new york, right outside of buffalo! it was a great experience. thanks again anne.

Marie,
Such a sad story! It is amazing though how you see your children differently when they get into their 20's, isn't it? My youngest son's friend died from leukemia last year @ 20 years old. She passed away quickly after her diagnosis. It is hard for our children at that age because they think they are invincible and then all of a sudden, they realize they are not and it is shocking to them! Take care!
Hugs,
