On another *sad* note...

I am putting this as its own post because it deserves as much attention as Janessa. The second post from Korin was about someone near and dear to our hearts, Carolyn King. The 13 month old daughter of one of Carolyn's close friends, the Judd Family, passed away quite suddenly on September 23. Click here to read about Anna. Her passing was quite a shock and the doctors are still looking for answers. I can't imagine how much pain the family is going through right now. It is always so difficult when you lose the person you love especially if their life was cut very short. I remember when this happened to one my hubby's good friends from college - it was his friends nephew who was only two at the time. From what I remember, I believe that the same thing happened to him. His nephew had two older brothers. After awhile and much faith in God, the mom became pregnant again with another boy. And we all ask ourselves, "Why me?" when something bad happens. I don't know why things like this happen and we will always wonder, but I have to keep believing that life is a miracle in its self. We never know what life will throw us, so be sure to be thankful everyday.

So after reading this, go hug your children really tight and tell them how much you love them!

Sympathy cards are always difficult to make - at least for me. Not only will I be making a sympathy card for the Judd family, but also for my aunt's husband. His father recently passed away this weekend who suffered from Alzeihmer's disease. He has been touch and go with his health the past couple of weeks until he gave up the will to eat. He had also been going through surgery after surgery and getting injured at the nursing home. His suffering is now over and now at peace.

God will now take care of these two special people....God Bless to all of you! Hope you join me in making a card for the Judd Family to let them know how much they are thought of.

Happy Sunday and hope you all have a great rest of the weekend!

THanks so much Alma for helping to spread the word. God only knows why these things happen but I know it is such a blessing to have so many people showing love and support for others that makes a BIG difference.

Many hugs!
