So last week I posted a layout with a school theme READING, WRITING, ARITHMETIC! I then wanted to add this weeks layout to it, and by mistake, I totally erased the whole post uggghh! Your comments are still there, but with a totally different post.

I had written that it had been a while since I had scrapped because of going through some difficult times. Last June I lost my mom and it was such a sad, hard time for me. Then we were worried about my dad, being so far away from all of us and being alone. Then my dad was diagnosed with Cancer and a very bad heart, and things went so wrong so fast. He was diagnosed in February, and he died in April. Less than a year apart, I lost both parents. I miss them so much. I just didn’t feel like doing anything for so long. We have had such a horrific year, with some other tragedies in our life that scrapbooking or any type of crafting just didn’t feel right. Then the first of July we received a phone call and they had found my mother-in-law dead, she died in her sleep. We have just been so numb with all the losses in our lives in such a short amount of time. Due to where family members live so far apart, we didn’t even get closure to losing our loved ones until this past August. I think our parents would’ve loved the services that we held in honor of them. We shared laughter and tears together. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family and friends who have been there for me and for all of us. Our Church was there for us also, we thank them for their prayers and for gifts of food and for coming to help us say our goodbyes or rather we’ll see you soon to our parents.

But last week, I decided it’s time to get back into it and be around my friends. Although it so happened that no one was able to attend, I sat down and did the layout, and felt so good when I got it done. So here again is the layout, Enjoy
