The Hardest Card


I think that yesterday I made the hardest card I have ever had to make in my life.   Finding everything I needed for it was not the hard part, the hard part was what the card was for.  Our building manager and his wife lost their unborn baby last week--she was at 22 weeks.  Well, we wanted a card for him, and of course I said I could.  I did, and it turned out beautiful.  But trying to figure out what to put on the inside was impossible, so I left it blank.  Which turned out to be a good thing seeing that about fifteen people signed it.  I have to say trying to find the words to express your heartache for them is hard, and finding an appropriate sentiment was just has hard.  I just want to say, I hope that I never ever have to make another card for such an occasion.

Here is the card, in case you were curious.

Well that's it for this time, peace out from the bunny hole.

it is beautiful, and I know how much it will mean to them! I kept every single card and letter we got when our Brenna died. I treasure them!
