National Scrapbook Day and a Memorial for a Friend

It's a special day for all of us who love to work with paper, pens, pictures, and glue!! There are so many sites to visit for this very special scrapbook day-hope you take the time to check out all the blogs and companies that are offering special ideas and treats for this celebration!!
I am hoping to complete a page about myself today as the beginning of the story of Me.  I really want to get a special album together for my girls to have when I am no longer with them. I know I may sound morbid, but in the past couple weeks I lost my mom and then my husband lost his best friend on Thursday.  Craig was only 53-too young to be taken home, but God had other ideas.  Craig was a kind and honorable man.  He was the first person to welcome me into the community when I first met my husband to be in 2002; his real grace came from his ability to make you feel like  were important to him.  He never minced words and he told you straight up how it was-blunt and honest and you always knew where you stood with him.  Craig worked hard, played hard and in everything he did he gave his all.And he left this life as I am sure he would have wanted-standing tall and walking into the unknown with his head up and his shoulders squared to the task.  God welcomed a strong and brave and true angel into his heavenly home on April 29 at 10 am.  I will miss shooting the apples from the tops of the cans on the front porch with you Craig.  You are one of  the special ones that only come to this earth once in a while-you will be remembered always by your friends Tom and Diane. We love you....

    I'm so sorry about your husband's friend--and that you had to take your husband to the hospital. God is good and He has a plan! Sometimes we don't understand it--but Thank God for His only Son that died for us so that we will meet in Heaven again (and you and Craig as well!). Praying for this family and yours! Love, Sav
