From The Bottom Of My Heart ...

Hello my dear friends,

I would like to say a huge "Thank You" from the bottom of my heart to all of you, who have left me so thoughtful, kind comments and emails after I told you about my recent health scare. I will get back to each one of you hopefully soon. You are all so very sweet and have yet again touched my heart with so much love that it brought tears to my eyes.

I am feeling much better these days. I am taking it easier and I am working on being much much calmer too. My stress levels have gone done quite a bit already which is doing me the world of good.
I have been out more often walking which is such a lovely thing and I have shared some of my photographs on Instagram already.

I have also started to be creative again without feeling any pressure from myself. This is the first time in a while now and I am enjoying it so much. You never know, I might just have something new to share with all of you soon.

Unfortunately I won't be sharing any gifts this Christmas with my dear friends which makes me sad but there is next year to return to one of my favorite things to do. I am still working on getting my Christmas cards out by the end of today and some of them might arrive late this time but that doesn't mean that they are not filled with much love and the best wishes ever!

And just in case I don't get back here before December 24th ...

... I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

May 2018 bring you everything you dream and wish for my dear friends!

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

  4. Wonderful to read that you are feeling much better. Looking forward to seeing all your new creations....Merry Christmas to you.

  5. Dear Karen--
    After reading this and your last post, I am even MORE honored to have received your special package this past week! Oh my goodness.

    So glad to hear you are feeling better and I'm also glad you are taking positive steps in your self care! My husband has high blood pressure and acute anxiety attacks, and he, too, is learning that he MUST take time for those little steps toward better health and never to feel selfish for doing so. Continued good health wishes for you!!!

    Have a wonderful Christmas!


  6. Good to hear you are leading a less stressful life and are resting and walking. Good to share that you had to let some things go this year that is an encouragement to us all. The season is about joy and celebrating the great gift of Christ's birth so have a Merry Christmas! Blessings Pam

  9. I'm sure your friends and family will understand your needing to let some things go this year. I wish you and those you hold most dear a very blessed and happy Christmas season.

  10. Dear Karen. Good to read that things are going in the right way. I will send you lots of joy and happiness for the Christmas and best wishes for a happy new year.
