It seems like forever since I have been actively blogging and crafting. It is amazing how much we truly tend to take life for granted when it sails along smoothly. Add one or two little hiccups and it can feel like someone either 'switched channels' or hit the pause button, especially when one of those hiccups winds up being a health issue. I just spent four months with not only physical pain, but the uncertainty of whether it was serious and/or would require surgery. The good news came earlier this week confirming I can now get on with life. No surgery and no serious issues. To borrow a pun, "Oh what a relief it is!" I am now taking some time to catch up on my creativity and crafting while I get back into the swing of things.
So, it only seems fitting that I begin with this card, '"With Gratitude", as I am thankful that life is getting back on track with less worry.
