I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. I hope something you see today will inspire you to get out there and get crafty!!

Last year my daughter moved to Oregon. In the spring of this year she got very ill and was in the hospital for almost 2 weeks. I talked to her regularly, but was still very upset that I could not be with her. My father finally came through for me and purchased me a plane ticket and I was able to fly out and be with her. She was out of the hospital by the time I got there. I took her around to do some short day trips to help her rebuild her strength and improve her mental spirits. One of the days we went to the Pacific Ocean. It was the first time she had put her feet in the Pacific Ocean. It was very cold. My layout is a photo that she took of me freezing my tootsie's off.

You can find crinkly ribbon and silver thread like I used in my layout over at 3 Girl Jam!!

I am so thankful that my daughter made a full recovery. And I am also thankful that my father was able to help me by getting me a plane ticket to be able to be with her!!! I love my daughter and my father (and all of my family!!) so much. I am thankful for every day I get to spend with them!!

So, your next stop is at Julie's blog. Thanks so much for hopping with us today!
