Tuesday Mailing -- and Sad News

Although I haven't posted my Tuesday cards for awhile, I haven't missed a week.  Today, I mailed these two that feature a much-loved SU! dragonfly image with Scripture from the Book of Ecclesiastes.  "There is a time...for everything under Heaven."  That includes life and death.  Three hours after I mailed the cards, I received word that my college friend of 55 years had succumbed to cancer earlier today.  She had fought "C" for nearly 5 years.  I can say that I'm happy I was faithful about sending her a card every week during that time.

So sorry to hear about your friend. So good of you to think of her and send her cards weekly. I'm sure it must have meant a lot to her.
And your card if beautiful. Edna

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. It is not a small thing to maintain a long time friendship. I am impressed with your diligence in sending weekly cards to uplift her spirits. You are a good friend. My deepest sympathies.

Oh, Evelyn, I'm so sorry to hear this news. You've been a faithful friend. It's important to maintain and nurture friendships, even if you can't be with them in person. Beautiful cards today. You've had this stamp a long time, probably. The blue wash in the background is perfect for the dragonfly and it reminds me of the dragonfly I photographed the other day. You have my most sincere sympathy for the loss of your friend.

Evelyn, my sympathies go out to you. May your faith sustain you through this loss. I have lost a couple of my closest friends in the past 10 years and I miss them so much. I need to dig that stamp out and use it again, as I really like it. Beautiful cards.
