Playing around

I forced myself, again, to play today. I had to do something! This one uses a technique called "Metallic Parchment" from the recent Technique Junkies newsletter. Also, the green and white background is done using Letterpress with a Spellbinders Impressabilities die. The main background was so gorgeous that I didn't want to take away from that, so I used a small stamp image as the main focal point. Stamp is from I Brake For Stamps.

We are still working on trying to find the right medication for my daughter's seizure thing (and you know I don't like to say the "E" word so I won't). The first one ended up turning her into a different kid. So beginning today, we are onto medication #2. This has been so exhausting and my heart just hurts. Seeing her struggle..........has been the hardest thing ever. Some days I just take things hour by hour. ugh. She has struggled all her life. I wish I could take it away. But this morning, as I dropped her off at school, as she was walking to the entrance, I told myself "Look at her! She is walking, and going to school." We honestly never knew if that would happen. And it has. I have created a blog to chronicle her story ( ). I hope that it may help someone , someday. We are in a hard place, but we are so blessed to be where we are, because it could be so much worse.

Thank God you can see the wood for the trees, Kristy. You're right - there are lots of things to be thankful for :) Sadly, you can't take the pain and difficulties for Gilly as we'd all like to for our kids - that's one of the hardest things for Mums to learn. Hope the meds work out. LOVE that background :)
