You're In My Thoughts

I have lots of people in my thoughts, everyday, all for various reasons, not all of them sad, thank goodness.

It's good sometimes to just sit, and focus on others who just may need you to be thinking of them right then and there.  I've realised, over time, that life is not about me.  It's quite something, to actually accept that one is not placed here for oneself.  Think about it, if you are simply here, on earth, for YOU, just you - it just doesn't seem worth it really.  You die one day and then what, if it was all about YOU, what a waste!  But how more fulfilling if we are here for others, wow, imagine all the good we can leave behind, for someone else to continue and bless someone else.....that's my belief.

And so this tiny little card emerged, using some left over patterned paper from my scrap basket and some foliage stamps from a PTI stamp set and a sentiment from Hero Arts.  The inks are all distressed inks.

And in my thoughts are also all the wonderful people that take the time in their busy day to pop in and say hi on my blog, thank you. Have a blessed day!
