A Sympathy Card

I have a post over on the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog by 3L® blog today. That card is a Sympathy Card.  I made it for my dear friend, Holly. I wish I had words for what Holly means to me. Knowing that she is in pain over the loss of her father just tears me up inside.  She is one of the most gentle, caring, smartest, loving, amazing human beings I am privileged to know. 

Making this card for her was so hard. Making ANY Sympathy Card is hard. You just want to hold the person you care about, tell them everything will be okay (even though you feel like such a liar), let them know how much they mean to you. But somehow…it all seems like it’s not enough. You can’t bring back their loved one. That loss can’t be undone. No words, no card, nothing can un-break the heart…not right now.

I made this Sympathy Card for Holly. Because I love her. And I feel her pain because she is like a sister to me. And I wish I could take her pain away.  I hate that she is hurting. That her whole family is grieving. Her father sounded like an amazing man. He had to have been. He raised a wonderful daughter.
