I wanted to tell everyone who has followed Ruby’s story thank you—from my family to yours. Thank you so very much for your love and support and kind words of comfort and encouragement! It’s so wonderful to have this group of people cheering us on, and I just have to say THANK YOU! From the bottom of our hearts. I would give each one of you a giant hug if I could. and then I’d buy you some hot chocolate and donuts and we could talk together. :) But this is my little attempt at doing something for you.
My blog has changed over time with life events, and I am thankful for those who have stuck around and thankful for those who are new here. I will still dabble in sewing and crafting, but it is a different season for my family right now and I’ve never been more content with how things are going on the blog front—I updated my ABOUT ME page (finally!) to represent myself and what you can expect here.
But honestly, there really is no way to fully express my thanks. As I’ve stated before, we had so many amazing people help us through Ruby’s surgery. There were monetary gifts, presents sent, thoughtful notes and messages. It was just fabulous. Throughout it all I kept thinking how wonderful people are. And so I used two different sayings to create 6 different printables. The “follow your heart” quote makes perfect sense of course. The “wonderful world” quote is because THIS SONG kept running through my head every time someone did another act of kindness. Cheesy? Yes, but it’s true :). You’ll find the rest of them at the end of this post.
A big part of working through things has been blogging her surgery in detail (on my little family blog) and thanking people. It felt so wonderful, yet completely inadequate, to write so many thank you’s. These ones to her surgeon, her cardiologist, and the Cardiac ICU were especially emotional to write, but also very healing.
