Checking In & A Freebie

Hi All,

I'm not sure if you are still with me or not but I thought I should check in and update you on what's been going on with me.  It's been a long, rough summer for the most part dealing with my daughter's health issues.  We are very thankful for the physical progression she's making but mentally there is still so much work to be done.  I've said this before and I'm saying it again .. this is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with.  Watching your child struggle so hard and wishing you could just fix everything but being helpless to do so is an unbelievably difficult thing to do.  I find myself emotionally drained and physically exhausted most days.  Right now, it's especially difficult as she finds it almost unbearable to deal with the physical changes her body is making.

With school starting in just a few short days, her anxiety is extremely high.  It doesn't help that she's going back to classes where she doesn't know anyone because her classmates all graduated in the Spring.  She was unable to graduate with her class because she had to drop a few courses to make finishing her year possible.  Now she is going back to pick those courses up so she can finish her program and get her degree.  I'm praying we can get her through this year so that is possible.  We could use your prayers in this matter as I know it's not going to be an easy road.

I'm sorry that I've not been more faithful in posting my freebies and cards but, to be quite honest, I have lost my mojo and it's been weeks since I've visited my craft dungeon to make anything.  I do have some digital papers and embellishments that I created in the past and I may choose to share some of those with you from time to time.  Hopefully this will suffice and help to keep you around as I would hate to lose any followers.

Here's a card I made a while ago but forgot to share.

And here is a 12-inch x 12-inch digital paper that I created a few months ago.  Just click on the paper to enlarge it to full size and then right-click on it to save it to your computer.  Enjoy :-)


  1. So sorry to hear that the struggle continues for your daughter and for you, Sharon. You will both be in my prayers. I hope that things get easier for her as the school year progresses. Thanks for sharing the beautiful digi paper with us, but don't worry about anything but yourself and your family right now. Thanks for the update and take care.

  2. Hi Sharon.
    I agree with Carla S. We understand how difficult this year has been for you. Take care and share when you are able.

  3. I agree with Carla's thoughts. Thank you for the update - stay strong.

  4. Good luck. God is with you, your family and you daughter every moment. May you feel His comfort and healing power within and around you.
    Hugs from Africa!

  5. I'm so glad you let us know how things are going and I'll keep your family in my prayers. Recovery from any illness, physical or mental, can be so very trying to all involved.
    Bless you.

  6. Hope things get better for you soon. Will be thinking of you.

  7. Thank you for the lovely paper.
