Taking A Break....

My Dear Stampin' Friends,

I'm taking a little blogging break to be with my family. My daddy passed away after a very short but valiant fight with lung cancer.  Interesting how things go, he said he would wait for me to return from Founder's Circle and he did!!

Hug your loved ones tight. See you soon!

  38. Becky, Take this time to grieve the loss of your precious father. Dolly Pardon once said, "The best emotion is laughter through tears" so think of the silly things he did, the funny things he said and the love he gave.I lost my son and sister in the same month of Aug, 4 yrs. apart and know the sadness of losing someone you love very much. I will be praying for you dear.

  83. So sorry to hear about your Daddy, Becky my thoughts go out to you and all your family, big hugs xx here is a little something for you,

    Do not stand at my grave and weep;
    I am not there, I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints in the snow,
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there, I did not die.
