Sympathy cards are the ones you don’t want to send. Still, there is something comforting in knowing, even for a brief moment, you’ve brought comfort to someone in mourning.
One of my Stamping Bee Team members lost her mother yesterday. As soon as I heard the news, I knew I had to create something special for her. We’ve been crafting together for almost 5 years and she’s party of my Stampin’ Up! family. At times like these, we remember…it’s more than paper and ink. It’s the relationships and friendships we’ve built and nurtured along the way.
Hug those you love tight today and let your words be kind. Sending you all light, love, and gratitude.
