Thinking of You Card

Hello everyone!! I can't believe that Thanksgiving is just 2 days from now, and that means that Christmas is just about a month away!! It seems like the older we get the faster the days go by.. I'm a little more excited about Thanksgiving this year because my daughter asked me if we could have a Turducken. I said "A WHAT", and so she explained to me what it was, so I got online and ordered it out of Louisiana. It's a de-boned Turkey, Duck and Chicken with Cajun dressing between the layers, and then put back together to look like a turkey. Wow, can't wait to try this "thing" out.
Okay now about this card. I am sending this to my sweet, sweet Sister In Law and her husband. This would be my husbands sister, Karen, and her husband. Karen has had to deal with something I hope no mother has to deal with. Four years ago this month she lost her middle child (oldest son, Clay), in a work accident. It has been so hard for her to go on with her life, and now, almost to the day, 4 years later, her Sister In Law lost her battle with cancer. She was only 48 and a beautiful person. I actually went to school with her and even though she was 3 years younger then I am, when you live in a small farm town, everybody knows everybody and their family. Her funeral was Saturday, the same day 4 years ago that Clay was buried. And then if that wasn't enough, in less than a week after that her husband lost an Aunt, and then one of her best friends lost their father. Both of their funerals will be tomorrow. She told me that right now she was just feeling numb.. Just going through the motions, and all of this hadn't really sunk in yet. I just pray that she remains strong through this difficult time. I just wished we lived closer so that we could be there for her... Since we don't I'm sending this card letting her know how we feel.

A beautiful card Fern, your sister-in-law will treasure it - what a difficult time for her - as a mother and grandmother I cannot imagine what she is going through - God forbid I ever have to xx

PS enjoy your Turducken!!
