Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

Several years ago I started a e-mail group with about 6 other women... we were scattered all over the country and one gal in Canada.. we talked DAILY about life, kids, faith and more... well... as time went on we got to know one another very much... we eneded up being like sisters... after a few years one of our "sisters" had a constant stuffy nose and a plugged ear... this went on for several months.... Sadly this mom of 2 was diagnosed with a RARE form of Cancer. Through prayer and devotion, Lori lived another two years with cancer.. she was a survivor, but left behind two beautiful YOUNG children... Living such a distance I felt like I HAD to do something for her.. but I wasn't sure what.. What could I give a dying woman.. tangeable stuff was NOT what she needed.. she needed my prayers and love... Having been a Girl Scout leader for several years.. I hooked up to a yahoo group.. and came up with several ideas on how these girls could help me BLESS Lori... About 30 Girl Scout troops made her a array of cards.. she was blessed with over a 300 cards.. and the Leaders knew that Lori loved to scrap.. Together I and the Leaders collected scrapbooking supplies so she could scrap moment for her children.. for their future.. She had no energy to shop for this stuff.. but with little time she did put things together for her kids. It's been two years since Lori has now passed.. and I miss her! Even though we never met face to face.. She was one of the most couragious persons I knew.. and she fought til the end!

THIS IS MY KEEPING IT REAL Photo... behind these beautiful Cinnamon rolls that I made....was a REAL mess.. but who really takes those kind of photos.. HA HA HA HA

I'm just getting into the whole scrap thing myself. Unfortunately I don't get much time to do it, but it's the most fun when you get the opportunity to do it with friends.
