February 27, 2015 Retail Therapy


Every year at this time of year my "bestie Donna" sending me a "thinking of you" card.  15 years ago on this day my son Aaron took his life at the age of 26, talk about leaving a hole in your heart that it did.  You never forget but you do deal and remember the happier times in his life.  He left a sister and a twin brother and my kids will never be able to say I did not love them.  Anyway this year her card was just the boost I needed to get through this week.  It surely brought a smile to my face and I know she is keeping me in her thoughts and prayers during "this time" each year.  the inside sentiment says Why are you just standing there holding this handmade card?  Jump up and down or something!.  Thank you dear friend.
