with love and blessings on Mother's Day

Today there is this beautiful release of a Friday Freebie at Catch the Bug.  I used this Bugaboo image along with a sentiment from TLC, Create.
I made this card a while back so this sketch is no longer current.  Work has been going well and I enjoy learning challenges.  I have wonderful co-workers and a positive environment.  The problem that I ran into is that the past weekend I had abdominal pain and thought that I was passing a kidney stone.  My best friend and daughter made me go in and be evaluated to find out that it was actually my appendix and I had emergency surgery on Sunday morning.  Luckily I was able to go home Sunday night.  I took off Monday and Tuesday and have been back to work full time since.  I come home exhausted so that's why my comments are short.
