I thought i would join in with the ‘tissue paper’ challenge over at MOXIE FAB
Here is what i came up with
YES…it’s simple….understated…that’s the point of it.
Sometimes…at hard times it calls for something like this…something simple…something different,,,something to show someone that you care , that you’re thinking of them.
I remember when my son died, all the cards that i received…with sympathy…with deepest sympathy etc. These cards were ‘ok’, they were the kind of kind that were ‘acceptable’ when my dad died, when my nanna died…BUT when it’s YOUR child it’s a completely different ball game and i guess that, that’s something that you can NEVER understand unless you are in that situation yourself. You can sit there and say..Oh yeah i know how you feel…i lost my Husband/wife/Brother/Sister/Mum/Dad…blah blah…and you think that you know!!!! Believe me it is NOTHING like compared to losing a parent etc. When you lose a child part of you dies, you change, you become a different person that what you were. You ‘carry’ this ‘PAIN’ with you every day for the rest of your life.In fact from my own experience, and from what a few others have told me …at first it does actually ‘feel’ like a physical pain. The ‘pain’ never goes… 4 years on, it’s still there for me. ‘People’ seem to think that once the funeral is over, you’ll be right, you’ll get ‘over it’ . I wish they could bottle up this feeling, let people ‘really feel’ what it’s like just for a day. The whole point of crafting…creating for me is a way of trying to relax etc. i blog and i blog hop…and the amount of blogs that i stop by and i find someone ‘complaining’ over something soooo trivial…..and i just think..IF ONLY…if only that was all i had to get me down…seriously…. you really DON’T know what you have until it’s gone ,,,and then when it has ..it will haunt you for the rest of your life!
….Anyhows…iam waffling…sorry! It’s VERY rare that i ‘get into’ these sort of ‘conversations’ on here…it just started from me trying to make a point of a simple card that let’s someone know that you are there for them. The point is…sometimes a card doesn’t have to be ‘all that’ sometimes it just has to say the right thing…
Think i’ ll end this post now and go to bed before i stat going on again…lol G’nite all.
