Blessings, Family, and Tea

Daughter Amy is home this weekend! She is out this afternoon with a college chum. I opted for some Bubble time! Looking forward to some family time later today.

This is one of my favorite sayings. I have it, embroidered, in my office. I read it several times per day. I bought the sampler saying while on a sisters holiday so when I look at it I also remember great memories, ample adult beverages, ridiculous laughter, awesome food and shopping! I've been wanting to type this up and use it on a card for quite some time.

I am donating an assortment of cards for a "pink tea" silent auction event. The proceeds go to cancer victims and families to pay for incidentals not paid for by insurance. I thought this sentiment would be a good one to include in the package.
