I just had to share this!  Isn't this amazing?!  It was drawn by Jonene Ficklin.  A sweet friend of our family used the picture of my husband from two posts down and had Jonene draw this.  I think it says it all!  I can't tell you what a comforting feeling it gives me each time I look at it because I totally believe this is how it truly is.  I know that my husband is happy, healthy, and ecstatic to see our Savior!  I know that all of his hard work in this life is paying off now in the work he is doing on the other side of the veil.  What a wonderful thing the Plan of Salvation is!  I am so grateful for my knowledge of it as it has made all of this that me and my family have gone through for the past few months so much easier to understand.  I will ever be grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who sent His Son to atone for all of our sins.  What a blessing!  And I am so, so grateful to know that my husband is busy doing our Father's work.  This has truly been a marvelous Mother's Day for me!

I'm Here

My sweet husband passed away March 11, 2013.  It was a short, but long, battle with melanoma.  I have not crafted since we found out about his diagnosis in October.  I have no desire to do so now.  However, I am told to not be hasty and to let life just take over for a while.  So that is what I am doing.  My craft room looks like it hasn't been touched in months!  (It hasn't!)  I haven't moved anything in there.  It is just as messy as when I left it so long ago.  Maybe one day the creative juices will flow again and I will jump right back into it, but until then, I just want to say thank you to all of you who have been visiting my blog.  There is nothing new here, but maybe something older will inspire you in some way.  Until I begin again, or if I begin again, happy crafting!
