Unity Friends with Flair (20.04.2012)

Wow, Friday is here again, the week has gone so quickly by.  Are you looking forward to the weekend?  I sure am.  We'll be going out to dinner tomorrow night and I'm looking forward to it.


Thank you so much for your kind words and wishes for my dad yesterday.  He had a lovely birthday and he is well. This card is dedicated to all who have relatives and/or friends who are suffering from Alzheimers.  I know it's sad to gradually lose your loved ones to this illness.  There are days when my dad appears to be in a world where I can't reach him.  I would really miss his coherent self, the dad who can converse and laugh with me.  But, we have more good days than the not-so-good ones, and it's a blessing. 

I feel I didn't do this image much justice, trying to colour the setting sun {grins}, it simply didn't look right, but I hope you like the message of the card.  The image is from the Unity set by Phyllis Harris, Present in my Heart.

Please be sure to hop along with the Friends with Flair today.  Have a beautiful day!!
Kary

Kary, this is such a beautiful card! My dad has dementia and I can totally relate to being blessed with the good days as opposed to the bad ones. Just take it day by day and know that you are not alone!

My heart goes out to you and your family Kary.. I know how terrible it can be at times. I think this card is so very beautiful, love the coloring, the beautiful stamp, and the kraft! God Bless

Alzheimer is a difficult disease and my heart goes out to you and your family. We lost my grandmother to it last year. Hold onto the memories for him. While he may forget the now, his soul will always remember his love for you.

I couldn't wait to get to this card. I think you definitely did it justice. You have a way of coloring emotion that is just amazing.

Kary, your card is just so very beautiful! I am truly sorry to hear about your Dad. We are dealing with something similar with my Grandmother. She raised me and is like my Mother. It is so hard but I will be praying for you and him. You are just the sweetest! Lots of hugs from your friend here in sunny California :-)
