Thinking of You Bouquet

Happy Friday everyone!  Time to have some fun over the weekend!  I have house guests arriving and I am thrilled to be sharing time with them.  I wanted to post this card before I get too busy!

It is hard as we get older to reconcile to the thought that life moves so fast.  Having recently put my Pop in a care facility has really been a wake up call for me.  Now he and both of his surviving sisters are in care facilities.  They are 94, and 92 years old, and Pop is 93.  I know that they enjoy receiving "snail mail" and like to set the cards out for a bit of cheer.  This card is for my Aunt Mary whom I adore.  When I was a child she sewed tons of doll clothes for my dolls, and also matching outfits for me!  She is a very talented seamstress, and still sews at 94!  Amazing!

I hope this brings a smile and a bit of sunshine to her day.
