Will be away for while #3

We share our happiness with each other
  and it becomes greater.
We share our troubles with each other
  and they become smaller.
We share one another's griefs and burdens
  and their weight becomes possible to bear.

I read this somewhere , some time ago , and it has come to mind  often of late .

Hello every one , welcome to my room once more . Hope that you are all blessed with good fortune .
I certainly have been . I have a " pantry " full of warm wishes and hugs to last and last as they don't seem to have an expiry date at all.
Progress for Doug is slow but small achievements are noticed every day . I am being supported by family and friends in style.  Last night when I arrived home at 7 pm,  a  group of my papercraft ladies turned up with a meal fit for a queen . Even the washing up after was tended to !
Thank you Sandy , Fran , Jane and Wilhelmina.
As always , life goes on and I have a birthday card to make for a lovely member of our family , hope she likes it . My usual quick and simple style .

All SU products . DSP is from Blueberry Crisp pack. Centre tag is from set Just Believe and sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments .
                                              I hope that I can catch up soon with all your lovely work . Thanks again for all your thoughts and prayers . Cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

Welcome back to blogland, Shirley-Anne. Have been missing your posts. This card is so lovely. Love the paper and the sentiment with the dainty flowers on it.

I deeply admire your positive approach and am so glad that Doug is taking baby steps towards progress. How sweet of your friends to bring a meal for you. You deserve it and more!

And I do so like the saying at the top of the page.

You take care of yourself, too.

xxx Monica

Oh Shirley-Anne, I'm so terribly sorry to hear of your Doug's stroke! I'm sorry too that it has taken me so long to get over here to visit and then hear the news. I hope he is doing better. It sounds as if he is. Know that you are in my thoughts and know that I will be hoping for his speedy recovery. Take care of yourself too. It sounds like you are surrounded by wonderful people that are taking good care of you. My best to you and Doug. . . Curt
