Life is eternal


It's always hard when a friend is suffering a loss. Especially when they live so far away, and there's very little you can do to help. Thankfully, there is a way to reach across the miles to let them know how much you care and are thinking of them.

I made this card for such a friend. Claire Brennan, owner of Waltzingmouse Stamps, and one of the sweetest ladies I know, recently lost her mother. I lost my mother over 17 years ago, so I understand a bit (even though everyone's loss is different), of the emptiness she must be going through right now.

Anyway, Waltzingmouse stamps has a sentiment for just about any thought you might want to convey, and I thought this sentiment from the Words of Wisdom set was beautiful and so fitting! "Life is eternal and love is immortal and death is only a horizon and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight." R W Raymond

I hope you are having a blessed day!!
Happy Stamping my friends!!
