a four letter word

its nothing too nasty - actually quite sweet...its the word
LOVE
 
I have been working on some cards and trying to make one extra special for my sweet hubbs...
Here is round 2..
 

sweet and pretty much says everything. He makes my life BLISSFUL - truly sounds super sappy but it's how I feel.


 
I gotta share something with you 
 it seems that the word DEPRESSION is settling nicely in various people in my life. To be totally truthful - I have never really understood how mental & psychological disabilities worked in people. I don't get how something can consume someones thoughts and mind and then affect their way of living. Before you think I am un-sympathetic - I feel - I do have a heart. I even have people in my immediate family that are affected with various illnesses such as bi-polar, depression, Alzheimer's and cancer. I have been affected directly - but I have never been able to wrap my head around how it works. With that said, I have never been affected personally, I don't ever feel depressed. Sure I have bad days but I never feel like all is lost. I never think there is NOT something better tomorrow...that's just me.
 
 I know life can't be great everyday, I know that my kids aren't perfect, I know that my house isn't close to well decorated or spotlessly cleaned. I know that I will never be a super-model (no matter how much weight I lose) I know I will never be anything more important than a MOM (I am totally o.k. with that) I know that I will never have thousands of dollars in our savings account, I know that the world is getting more violent, more deviant and will continue as my kids grow up, I know that I can't prevent all the evil in the world or even the evil surrounding my  kids....BUT even knowing all that, I am NOT scared - I am not fearful, I am NOT worried - I don't feel helpless, I don't STRESS about it all - it's NOT in my nature.
But truth be told - I have a secret weapon (sappy is on its way again)
My Husband. He keeps me grounded. He keeps me calm, He NEVER stresses, he doesn't get mad, he HELPS me when I feel overwhelmed (housework, kids, dishes....)
 
I know it sounds like I went off in a tangent but my point (didn't think I had one did you?) is 2 fold, you understand why it is important for me to make the PERFECT card...also I think anyone can get through anything no matter how tough if they have a SUPERIOR SUPPORT SYSTEM. Mine just happens to be my husband. {YOU & ME}
 
Here's wishing that you have a wonderful support system.
 
I truly believe we are all alright and that tomorrow HAS to be better than today!
 
stay strong
