The scrapbooking and rubber stamp community lost a wonderful woman on Monday. I had the pleasure of knowing this woman for about 10 years. Kelly and I weren't best friends or anything, but more like two people with a common bond of our love of scrapbooking. She worked at the bank where I do a lot of my banking so I knew her in that capacity too. She lost her battle with cancer after almost 4 years. She leaves behind a husband, two sons, and a daughter. The kids are in their early 20's. Much too young to be without a mother. My friend Chris and I went to the visitation last night. I am feeling very blue today. My family wants to go and get the Christmas tree and decorate for Christmas today. I just want to crawl back into bed and snuggle with the dogs and cats. We have Tom's Christmas party tonight. I guess life goes on, but my world is feeling a bit empty now. No knitting news, maybe tomorrow, or whenever I can get my groove back.
