Birthday Freebie

Well better late than never I suppose.  It's been a busy summer so far.  I'm still scrapping at night, it helps me wind down after a long crazy day.  I've had a few nail biter moments too.  Those of you that have read my stories at DDD know about my aunt and that she has Alzheimer's.  This disease has progressed slowly for several years (at least the past 20 years) and has now consumed her to the point that my mom could no longer care for her in her home.  We have had to put her in a nursing home where she will now get the 24 hour supervision that she requires.  The saddest part of this whole thing is that she just celebrated her 60th birthday in May.  I think I started talking about it when she was 58 and the disease had become so bad that she could no longer do the things she used to do.  We all accepted the fact that she probably wouldn't see her 59th birthday.  Now that her 60th birthday has come and gone, I am now more than ever so grateful to have her in my life.  She is so frail and wears my old (size 6) jeans and they even look too big for her.  When I go visit her I know she doesn't know my face but when I tell her "Aunt Linda, it's me Belle" she glows and has the biggest smile.  These are the memories I want to hold on to.

I've also had a scare with my dad.  He had a cardiac ablation procedure done at the beginning of June and hasn't been right since.  He has lost 45 pounds in the last month and a half, been in the hospital 3 times, visits with many doctors and today FINALLY got an answer!  It's his thyroid!  Good grief...anyway, hoping he is on his way to recovery.  In the midst of all this was my youngest son's birthday, my little sisters birthday, my birthday and my blogs 4th birthday!!!...soooo for Aunt Linda hitting the big 60, my dad making us pull our hair out because he is so stubburn, my son for being the little stinker he is, my little sister who has dropped more "f" bomb's in the last month than I care to admit and of course myself...Happy Birthday!!!  Enjoy!

Happy Independance Day & "America" Freebie

Hope everyone is having a fantastic 4th of July celebration.  Here is a small freebie for you.  It doesn't have much but I figured you could use it along with some other fabulous finds from digi-land.  I've been in a design funk lately and can't seem to find the inspiration.  Hopefully it will find it's way back eventually.  Enjoy.
