I made this card as a way of encouragement for my sister Donna.
Last night I read a fabulous post by Darnell at djkardkreations. Darnell is a new playmate in the Snippets playground. She says as opposed to life handing you lemons when you are going thru really tough times it is more like life handing you an onion as our problems are usually multilayered. I invite you to read her post here as she expresses it so eloquently.
Donna and her family are going thru a very rough patch right now. Darnell calls them Oniony Days which seems so very appropriate as there really are many layers to this family’s problems. It will take a long time, a lot of determination and no doubt many tears for this family to peel thru the layers of this situation and get back to some resemblance of normalcy. Donna is having an especially difficult time dealing with everything. If you would say a prayer or send positive thoughts her way it would be much appreciated.
It is amazing to me how one person’s problems can act like a pebble in a pond and affect those around them. At the moment I am emotionally caught up in the ripples of several different situations. The worst of it is there is nothing I can do to help any of these situations improve. Everyone has to peel their own onion but I am feeling somewhat emotionally overwhelmed and useless to those I love and care for.
At the moment I am finding it difficult to leave cheerful comments on your blogs. Until I can get my head in a better place and get my spirits lifted I am taking a little brake from blogland.
Again quoting Darnell, I wish you all cotton-candy, sweet peach and strawberry-daiquiri days. See you soon.
I'm sharing with the playmates at Di's Snippet Playground.
Hugs & Blessings
