Hi there! How about a patriotic card today? :-)
I LOVE Kim's new Circle of Honor set! I couldn't be happier to have a set that can be used for so many purposes...and honoring the men and women that serve our Country especially!! I don't have any immediate family that serves in the Armed Forces, but my grandpa did and he definitely instilled a pride of Country in our family! I know we have our problems and obstacles that need to be faced, but I feel SO very blessed to live in America! And I am very, very grateful to the men and women who serve and risk their lives for me!
I plan on using this set. A LOT. In fact, I found out about a local organization that oversees the shipment of cards and gifts to deployed men and women form our area! YAY!!!! My DH (who is Swiss born and first generation immigrant) and I thought it would be a great idea to sit down with our kids and create cards and notes of thanks that we can send to those currently deployed.
Sorry for the long post...I just wanted to share a little about how really excited for this new Circle of Honor set and how I plan on using it! :-)
Oh...and another personal note. I really am sorry it has taken me so long to update you on Alison. In between stamping commitments (which has really been a blessing for me...allows me some much needed therapy :-) and all the running around to various doctors I have been doing, there has not been any extra time. In fact, I'm getting ready to leave again today to take Ali to her Neurologist. I do love where I live, but the definite down side to living in the middle of nowhere is the vast amount of driving I must do. Her Neurologist is 2 1/2 hours away (one way). BUT...I do get to spend that driving time with my daughter!! :-) Anyway, I really will update you soon.
HUGS to all of you! ~Laurie
