I haven't been doing much creating the past few weeks. My Design Team work and blog hop artwork are fortunately ahead of schedule and those are the only posts coming up on my blog for the time being.
My mother was quite ill for a while and just under two weeks ago, she suffered a massive stroke that rendered her unable to function. My brother and I had to make the difficult decision to remove her from life support as per her wishes and she passed away last Sunday (November 13th). It is the most difficult thing I have ever experienced as she was truly my best friend.
This layout is one that I created several years ago. It is one of my favourites of my mom and me as I have so few photos of her in her later years.
I find myself reaching for the phone several times a day to call her as I am used to talking to her every day... I miss her terribly and I know that each coming day will get easier but it is so very difficult right now.
