The Goodness of Life....FMS190




Life is truly hectic around here as we transition my mother from her apartment to assisted living. She is working hard in the rehab center to regain strength and the rest of us are working hard to sort out her apartment.  But I do take time to visit her every day......I bring my own cup of tea and I bring her an iced coffee and we sit and chat after lunch. Weekdays I also bring along Miss Emma -  who has managed to charm the staff and residents - she does know how to make an entrance.......  









Our talented and also charming Amy O'Neill has created a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches! 



I am also linking this card to the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop led by that bundle of energy and oh so talented Amy Tsuruta!  Such Fun!

Your card has so many amazing elements! I just love the inky splatters behind the cup. Speaking of things that are awesome - how could your little girl NOT charm the pants off of everyone. She's adorable! I'm glad you're taking some time to spend with your mom. I know transitions like that can be hard on all parties, so take care of yourself! :)
