My Dear Blog Friends,
I know you've probably been wondering where I've been.  We lost my mom two days before Christmas.  It was a very difficult time, and we are just now beginning to get back to taking care of so many things that have fallen by the wayside.  
I want to thank all of my dear friends who gave us so much love and comfort.  You know who you are, and you all have been my umbrella.  :o) Thank you for the prayers, beautiful cards, plants, phone calls, emails and food.  We will forever be grateful for your friendship.  Our kids were also a great comfort to us, and helped us with the arrangements.  Thank you, and we love you!
When I saw this card that I'd made a couple of months ago, it reminded me of all my blessings, so I'm posting it today.  The sentiment reads "When things are tough, friends are your umbrella".... you can click on the picture to enlarge it.

Thanks also for sticking with me through thick and thin...and my posts have been on the thin si…
