Two Wonderful Women

I’ve thought a lot lately about how grand life is and how grateful I am for the people in my life who influence me for good. Of course, my sweetheart is the most important person in my life (btw, he’s recovering nicely…often tired and needs a daily nap, but slowly getting stronger), and I feel blessed to spend so much time with him and to have had the opportunity to serve him lately.

My thoughts then obviously go to our beautiful family, including our extended family, and their examples in our lives of love, support, and goodness. They truly teach us and bless our lives in immeasurable ways. And, of course, my life would be incomplete without all the fabulous people we get to associate with from around the world.

I usually don’t write of a person’s passing, but with Sterling’s recent stroke and the news that two special Stampin’ Up! demonstrators passed away during this past week, it’s a poignant reminder that life really is short and should never be taken for granted.

These two wonderful women, who struggled with debilitating illnesses, have been a part of the Stampin’ Up! family for many years, and my fond memories of them and the way they touched my life will forever be remembered. Among their notable qualities, Joann was one of the sweetest women you’ll ever meet, and Susy had a way of making everyone laugh. They will truly be missed.

I honor them and thank them for being part of my life. I also thank all of you for your influence in my life. I am blessed!
