MOJO225 & SSIC154 ~ With Heartfelt Sympathy

Blessings to you dear friends.  I must say this is the type of card I do not like to do.  Sympathy cards seem to be so hard for me.  I know that death is a going home celebration for those who die in Christ and the expressions of sympathy are simply for those left behind. 
With my Mother's accident and subsequent surgery, the fragility of life has become very clear.  We are not promised tomorrow.  We must live as if it were our last moment on earth.  So today, I plan to hug my loved ones and tell them how much I care.  What a blessing that we awoke to celebrate another day of life!  Who can  you share God's love with today?  Hugs and blessings...
