When it rains...it pours...

Hello !

I started this month out with grand plans...then as the saying goes, when it rains, it pours...

Unfortunately this month our family lost a beloved man, father and grandfather. My husband's father passed away on the 15th of June after a long battled with Cancer. I'm sure there are some of you out there that have been affected by the dreaded 'C' so you will know what our household has been like since my last post !

Like I said, I had great plans for the month, but real life has directed my attention elsewhere over the past several weeks :(

I am looking forward to a more relaxing July to say the least but I also wanted to share with you some exciting promotions that Close To My Heart have on currently and what is yet to come in the month of July!

  2. Sorry for your loss Kristine. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    1. Thanks Brandy, its been pretty sucky, but I'm feeling the love from everyone <3

  3. So sorry for your family's loss. I lost my best friend/cousin to cancer 10 years ago. It helps to know that she no longer suffers from the pain. She is my special angel. May God bless you and carry you through these difficult times. *Hugs*

  4. So sorry to read about the death of your father-in-law. I lost my fil last October due to issues caused by diabetes. I have lost friends and family to cancer, too. I'm not sure there is anyone who hasn't been affected by cancer, sad to say. I wish you and your family well through this difficult time.
