I've been in Dallas!

Sorry about the lack of posts lately!  My personal life has slowed down dramatically--school's out, no baseball, tennis or banquets to organize!  But, my Mom has been sick--very sick.  She has spent the last six weeks in the hospital, but has now, finally, been moved to rehab!!  She's been through alot, but she's a fighter (normally I say stubborn!! LOL!).  I'm so proud of how far she's come.  We can still use all the prayers we can get--would love your help in this area!  I just spent the weekend with her, and have renewed hope that she'll be going home within a month--again, your prayers would be appreciated!

I hope to get back to some stamping this week!  So, don't give up on me! :-)
