My Pink Stamper just placed a call for card donations for an amazing cause. Today while my little ones were sleeping I made a fun card to send along as well. This card donation comes close to home since I have a friend that is my age and has a 2-year-old little girl and a 3-year-old little boy who was diagnosed with breast cancer so advanced it moved into her liver a few months ago. It was a miscarriage that brought the finding of her cancer. The diagnosis is very grim, but she is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. She was handed back-to-back heartbreak, yet she is fighting for her life in a manner not many would think any person could. The level of grace, self-sacrifice, dignity and strength she has floors me and all those around her. She has an amazing strength in the Lord and He is there delivering blessings of joy every day. It is one of the most astonishing things I have ever seen.
I decided to do an Ice Cream theme since it brings smiles to everyone AND from my understanding, most that under go treatment have a fondness for the treat since it is a soothing blessing to an upset stomach and a mouth full of sores that goes with that process.
While making this card, I thought of my friend greatly and thought that there will be a woman receiving this very card that more than likely is just like my friend. Those that battle breast cancer are the most amazing women I have ever met and I was honored to be able to participate in this service project.
Thank you for coming by and having a piece of more of the serious slice of life’s pie with me today.
