Be Still and Know that I am God

I wanted to stop in and let you all know that our wonderful Grandma Florida (as dubbed by my girls many years ago) passed away late Friday night.  Our hearts are heavy as we will miss her terribly until we see her again.  I cannot say enough about this generous woman whose 91 year old body truly just plain wore out while living life to the fullest.  She is my grandma by marriage, but I realized that she was mine for longer than one of my own even.  Grandma was a fantastic Scrabble player, a beautiful soul, and a force to be reckoned with, all in one dainty little frame.  My children all bear some of her remarkable genetics down to her energizing blue eyes. 


I made her a little card to keep with her at the rehab center that I was going to give her when we were supposed to see her at Thanksgiving.  I used one of my favorite My Acrylix stamps, Be Still, a Verve cross stamp, Cocoa Exclusive Ink, and the Yuletide Carol Paper Packet.  I didn't have the chance to give it to her, so I wanted to share it with you...


It will be pretty silent on my Facebook Page and blog as we take care of each other for a while.  I will be back after our Thanksgiving celebrations are finished, though, and have lots to still share with you from paper creations to new shimmer trim colors coming soon.  Yep.  I certainly will have my sparkle back in a bit, so Be Still, have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I see you next month my friends! I am most thankful for you all!
