Well, step-son left yesterday for school. Dad handled it beautifully but step-mom fell apart... I kept blubbering... and asking hubby why I was taking this so hard... He had some very wise words to share... "it takes a special kind of woman to love another woman's biological child. You my dear have loved him as if he were your very own..." So after I sobbed some more... (Kleenex made a killing off of me yesterday...) I pulled myself together long enough to work on this card. I had some leftover pieces of paper and the sentiment... it says it all. Here's to new beginnings and new blessings! Have a wonderful week!
