Butterfly Kisses

I love butterflies, I visit butterfly farms if I know there are any around (none here) but I did visit one in St. Martin while I was on a cruise with my precious daughter and her family.  I made this card with the Elegant Eggplant  SU card stock.  I used Sizzex texture paper to make my butterflies with the SU embosslit folder, Spellbinder ovals and my polka dot ribbon.   The sentiment is from SU Butterfly set.  These are just a few of the things I got when I put in my SU order last week.   I made this card and that's all, just not in the mood to make cards right now.
Journal Time: I'll name my special posts about my life Journal Time so that if you don't want to hear about my personal life you can quit reading when you see Journal Time.  I've been in a real funk for the past few days, I took Mom to Abbey's Place Monday afternoon.  We toured the home and Mom met the nurse Agnes and David the CNA.  She's blind but she can see shadows and she liked the house and the huge bright sunny 'Sunroom' full of comfy chairs and TV.   I thought all was well and she understood but all of a sudden she said 'Jean I think its time to go' and Agnes stepped in and told Mom she was staying while I did some errands.  They have called me twice a day since then to let me know Mom is doing well, sleeping well, getting along with the other patients and asking when I'm coming to pick her up.  It breaks my heart that she doesn't understand but yet I know that she is being well cared for and she is making friends with the others there.  Personally I've been home for the past three days, I'm out of RLS meds so I haven't been sleeping well at all.  I'm waiting for the med's to come from Caremark so I'm doing alot of walking since my legs are bugging me so bad.  I'm a little down in the dumps but I'll be OK, I'm strong.
God Bless,

Jeanine, this is such a serene and elegant card, with it's swirling butterflies and beautiful shades of purple and teal!

I loved reading about your journal time - I think it's so therapeutic sometimes to type what we feel and (((( 's )))) to you about the decision you made with your mom. I pray that she will find some comfort and rest and some really good friends and praying for peace for you as well! x0x0
