Thank You For Your Kindness

I want to thank everyone for all their kind words and supports. I know, I have not met many of you, yet you reached out to me and comforted me. Thank you so much.

I love my foster dad as much as I love my own dad. My heart still ache whenever I think of him.  When I reached for the phone to text him and realized, he's no longer there. I simply miss him. I know my heart will ache for a long time. But, like my mom said, as his daughter, the best thing I can do is to continue his legacy. Be the kind person like he was. Always help others whenever I can.

To celebrate his life, celebrate my time with him. Count my blessings. I had 2 great dads in my life and I am thankful for that.I feel so deeply connected to my foster dad, that I know he's not really gone, cause I carry him in my heart. Someday, I'll see him again and I will give him the biggest hug. :)

And, to my friend Leslie, thank you for listening to me crying my eyes out. I tend to keep my feelings in as I always worried about being a burden to others. Even to my close friend. And when I told her I don't want to be a party pooper and feel bad to call when I am all crying, she said that's okay, I'll be a party pooper alongside you. Leslie, I just want to say thank you for being a true blue friend. I love you!

To distract myself, I started to create again. I was going to scrapbook about my dad, but I couldn't do it, yet. Soon, I will though. For now, this simple card to show you all how much I appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness.

The one below, I made it last week, just never get to share it here.

Thank you again everyone for your kindness. Hugs.

Hi Vera,

What gorgeous cards! Both are so classy and the colors that you selected work perfectly together. You are so talented!

Your Mom gave you some wonderful advice. Honoring your foster Dad by continuing his legacy is a beautiful way to pay tribute to him.

You may not know it, but you have been doing that already. It was one of the reasons that I enjoy coming to read your blog. I can see the kindness in your writings, your respectful demeanor and the beauty in your cards.
