Default Baby Shower and Thank You for sympathy presents

OK, this is not easy for me. But, I have to tell someone. Today was a really hard day. I had to get 20 baby shower invitations made for my new grandson to be and now I am trying to get motivated to create thank you cards for those who gave me plants, cards etc for my mothers death last week. I'm actually considering buying cards for the first time in 10 years.

If it's easier to buy cards, do it. Card making should be fun--a release and an escape, not a burden.

I am so sorry for your loss, and so happy for your grandson's upcoming birth. ((((hugs))))

Hi Pear! I'm Beth!

So sorry to hear bout your mother. Times like that are just tough. I fyou would feel better to buy your cards, I think it's totally fine. It sounds like you have had a lot on your plate....I think people would understand! But, how sweet to be getting ready for your new grandson...that does give you something to look forward to...that's exciting!!

Hope you make it through these next few weeks okay. Hang in there....hugs, prayers, good vibes all sent your way!

I'm so sorry about your mother, and happy about your grandchild. What a roller coaster of emotions for you.....buy cards if you need to, and take care!
