Missing him...
We all got together over at deanne's yesterday to meet our cousin Mark's daughter Chris. Mark and his wife jeannie were very supportive when dad died. We don't get together often, but we always have a good time when we do. I have been playing with my machine chris bought me (ok..i put it in the cart and told him it was my xmas and bday present). It is similar to my little cricut only it cuts stuff BIGGER! It will work great for my classroom. Anyway, started this last night, and after I was done feeling like death warmed over, (and sleeping until 11:30 this am), I finished this.
The journaling says:
It has been 5 years since I talked to you. Five years since I hugged you. I took for granted I would have you for one more day. What hurts the most about losing you? The family history, I will never know, the relationship you had with Danny and getting to know the Riles (I know you would have loved her. She is fiesty). Mom missing you. She never comes out and says so, but she misses you. The love you had for your family. All of us. No matter what was happening, and the phone calls to wish me happy birthday. This is
What hurts the most. (title).

I think i need something under the picture, but am undecided on what to put there. the little black stickers say Love, other things may change us, but we start and end with family, and the greatest of these is love.
happy day
(it is not really uneven. That is just how it stitched together after I scanned it.) w

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Ha Ha I remembered! I love the page you did with Mom & Dad. How about adding something under the picture that notes the years they were married...such as "35 years of love" or something like that. I enjoyed our day yesterday.
Love ya
p.s. I wish you would remove this word verification thing. It's a pain in the ass! Ooooo was that me that just swore on your blog?ere! :)
