THANK YOU, thank you, Thank You...

Good morning my fellow bloggers. I hope you that your weekend it going good so far. Mine started last night at about 6:25pm. That would be the time I finally got out of work and headed home to my family. It always puts me in a good mood to know that I will be seeing Jerry and the kids. As you can tell they are my life and I try to remember to thank God for them each and everyday.
Sorry to put a downer to my post this morning, but someone I know had a tragedy this past week with one of their children and it has really made me take a closer look at what is important to me. It is not the fact that at times money seems to be in short supply. It is not the fact that someone put me in a bad mood at work. It is not the fact that I wasn't able to buy the new stamp set that I wanted. It is my family and my friends that mean everything. So, I will get on with it and thank you all for coming to see my little corner of the world and for being so kind with all of your sweet comments.
I have to tell you that Madison and I were coloring the other night in bed and she asked if I would color one of her Lisa Frank pictures. They really are very cute. I just love the huge eyes one them. She has notebooks out and you can download her pictures for free off the Internet. Well, when I got done coloring I decided that there really was not reason that I could use her in a card just like I do with my digi stamps. Sooooo here is my Lisa Frank card. She is one happy girl because she has been on a shopping spree. I think she must have been in L.A. as all of her packages have tissue paper in them just to keep her wonderful purchases safe until she can get them home. Where, I imagine she will spreed them all out on her bed just so that she can admire them once again. lol...
Have a super Saturday all. Please forgive my little speech, I just needed to voice my sadness for this family's loss. Please keep them in your prayers. Thanks so much everyone. Hugs, Lisa G
