Enjoy every moment...

The main image in this card is from a Hero Arts set called Personal Messages . I chose that sentiment because it has special meaning for me right now. We all take so many things for granted, and it’s true so very true that we should enjoy every moment.

This is not something I ever imagined I would do. I always try to keep my blog upbeat and professional. After all, you’re all here to see card samples, aren’t you? But today I’m asking each of you for a very special favor. I need your prayers.

For almost a week now I have struggled with this, and today has been particularly difficult for me. You see, I had a mammogram last week that the doctors didn’t like. So early Thursday morning I went back back in for another one. They didn’t like it either.

I have an appointment with a breast surgeon tomorrow at 1:00. He will take a closer look at the mammograms, do a sonogram and give me his professional opinion regarding where we go from here. It could be nothing…then again, maybe not. I’ve never been one to borrow trouble or imagine the worst. It's just not my nature. So I’m hopeful that this is something manageable. Anyone who knows me can tell you that I have always been quite brave and courageous. But the truth of the matter is that’s only when I’m in control. No doubt, I am not in control of this.

So before you call it a day, please say a prayer, then tell someone you love them and give them a hug. You just never know how much they might need it.

Thanks for you support….and for stopping by.

Michelle, I will say a prayer for you right now. I'm so glad you shared this with us. This summer I learned that my blog friends were prayer warriors, and their prayers lifted me up with I found it difficult to lift myself. Now we can do that for you. Whatever happens, you are strong enough to deal with it. Keep your eyes and heart looking upwards.

Blessings,
