It's Card Class Time Again

Hello everyone. It's that time again. Another class and loads of fun. We really look forward to class each month. Here are the cards we picked out for the class. The first photo is of the class work for the day. The second photo is of the homework for February. The class is asked to do their cards and bring them for us to see by class time or before the month ends. This year we are giving incentives for the things we ask them to do. During March, there's going to be a surprise or two. We also are showing them a technique each month. We show them and give them the written instructions so they can have if and when they ever want to do the technique on their own. I really love working with our class. They make my day. So until next ime . . . . .

My Best Friend

Hello everyone. I have been trying to get back on track with my blog, but it seems as though there's been one thing after another happening. It has been a hard week for me. Last Friday night me and all the cards players met at our friends house. We usually go there because she has been having trouble with her health and cannot walk very good anymore. We had two tables playing and having a good time as usual. We played until 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning. Before we left, we made plans to meet back at her house at 6:00 p.m. that evening to cook and play more cards. She just loved that. Well that evening came and I called to see if anyone had made it to her house. She didn't answer the phone. I waited about 30 minutes and called again, still no answer. There was a knock on my door. It was my cousin and her husband. They were carrying on casual conversation and I knew it was strange for them to just show up, but I didn't really think anymore about it. While we were talking my phone rang. I answered it and the message was to tell me everyone was over to Dorothy's cause she had passed. That hurt me so deeply. She was my best friend. My lifelong card partner. Things will definately not be the same. Her funeral was today. I will always miss her, but we have a lifetime of good memories. I thank God for sharing her with me.

Happy 53rd Birthday

Hello everyone! Sorry it has taken me so long to blog about my 53rd birthday on January 26th. It was a good day. I shared it with my sister and my cousin. That night I had Praise team rehearsal. I received birthday cards from some of the ladies from card making class. Sis. Dungey sent me a gift bag of goodies and some of my family members gave me cards with a little extra stuffed inside. My Aunt gave me a pair of Red Hat Lady house shoes and I really love them. All and all I am blessed to just be alive.
