On Wednesday, my friend's husband died. He was only 56 years old. I had the privilege of working with her in my very first year of teaching, and she became very special to me because it was also my first year living away from home. During that year, I went to her house several times for dinner, or a visit, and felt totally loved by her family. Her husband was like a big teddy bear and he was loved by so many people. I can't imagine losing my best friend, and my heart goes out to her, and I have been praying that God will wrap his big arms around her and give her comfort.
I made her a card and I wanted to mail it off right away, so I forgot to take a picture. This is pretty much the same card. I used markers directly on the stamp and then "huffed" on the stamp to moisten it again before stamping it on the paper. These colours feel like sunshine to me, and I hope they bring comfort when the card is opened.
