the journaling reads:
i cannot even begin to tell you just how appreciative we've been ~ the support my husband and i have been so freely given by everyone i've met in the scrappin world. 31/2 years ago when my husband had his accident and had his arm amputated...our world changed in an instant and it was my scrappin friends that supported us the most. it was the worst time of our lives...and to be honest ~ the company he worked for ...didn't even acknowlege him ~ didn't even send a card ~ and still to this day...no response. it angers me...and yet saddens me. i mean..like..'really'. how sad is that! i've carried so much hurt over their lack of acknowledgement...and must admit it is hard to 'let go'...but, if it wasn't for my scrappin friends, the cards, the encouragement, the love, the flowers ~ sent even from around the world ~ the unconditional love ~ i don't know if i could have held on as long as i have. so, 'really'... this is for my scrappin friends...each of you ~ 'just for being there' ~ 'just for being you' ~ for holding my hand ~ for talking me through all my hubands surgeries ~ for holding 'out' your hand ~ for holding me up when i was fallen down..for encouraging me to continue scrappin...for just loving 'us'...for being there online..for phoning ~ for your unconditional time...'really' you all hold a special place in our hearts...and 'we' thank you.
