With Heartfelt Sympathy.

I made this card with the mother of dear family friends who was thought would, most certainly, not make it through the night.  While saddened by this news and after having offered any and all assistance to our beloved friends, I just felt the need to craft.  While I am certain that I won't have to explain the therapeutic effects of this to you crafty lot, so I disappeared for a while into my own little comforting crafty bubble and worked gently on this card.

Come sunrise, although bracing for bad news, we made the call to see if the cherished mother of our family friends had made it through the night and indeed she had.  YAY!  We were so thrilled for the news.  Not only had this 90 year old miracle of a woman survived, but was much improved!  It is now 3 weeks on and she has gone from strength to strength.  All I can say is that I have never been so happy to have made a sympathy card and not needed it. Now that is something, you don't say often.  Nice.

Thank you ever so much for allowing me to share with you.  The pleasure is truly mine.  Keep well. x
