Stamping Is The Best Therapy!

Stamping Is The BEST Therapy!

It is hard to give myself permission to give myself time off! (Let me tell you, it IS hard!) Thank you for checking in to see how I am feeling. I am feeling a little bit better this afternoon, but I fatigue easily.

One of the things that I wanted to share is that I am overwhelmed by your outpouring of affection! Each and every card, flower arrangement, phone call, email, text or meal means so much to me. I guess you could say it is like one HUGE hug! I consider everyone an angel on my shoulders!

This sweet little hand carved angel has been watching over me.

mantelYour gifts and flowers have all brought me much encouragement and I have certainly never felt so loved during this difficult time.

flowersIt is sometimes so overwhelming that words cannot express how truly grateful I am that you have reached out to me!  I am not sure what tomorrow brings and I have lots of fears, but I know that I am very blessed to have so many wonderful and caring people behind me.


Bridgeport Hospital and it’s staff have been wonderful.  The doctors and staff of the Norma Pfriem Breast Center have been caring and kind professionals and I thank them wholeheartedly.

But, last Thursday, Ed and I received news that deflated my positive balloon. The results of my pathology report came back that I had Stage 1 cancer and an appointment with an oncologist was scheduled for Jan 30th. The bright side of my mastectomy is that my lymph nodes are clear. I am not sure where my journey and recovery will take me, but you can be sure that I will stay in touch in the next week or so.

I am taking advantage of this afternoon to write to you and get some thank you notes finished.  I wanted to show you that you don’t need to send anything elaborate for your thank you notes.  I will be sharing a few ideas over the next few weeks.  (I have a lot of them to stamp and write.)  Like the post title says, “Stamping is the BEST therapy!”

I fell in love with the Swirly Bird Bundle a few months ago when the Annual Catalog came out.  I think it is versatile.  So much so, that I used it for some Christmas Cards this year.

To make your thank you cards even easier, add a set of Note Cards and Envelopes, either in Whisper White or Kraft.  They are cut and scored for you.
