sharing in your sorrow

I'm typing today's post with an extremely heavy heart. My friend and upline, Beckie, lost her husband suddenly and unexpectedly this past Sunday. Beckie is one of those people who is always encouraging and supportive and looking out for everyone in her life. Beckie and Brad were best friends and have been together for 20 years and have 6 children. You can read more in her blog post here.

We are starting a Thank You card drive for Beckie so she can use those thank you notes to send out to all the friends and family who are helping her out in this time of need. If you would be interested in donating a blank thank you card and envelope, please email me for information. I'll be sending the donated cards April 30th.

Thank you all so much.

recipe -
stamps: trendy trees, thoughts & prayers
