Leaving You With Flowers

Many have noticed I haven't been around nearly as much. Many things have been going on in the lives of my family. One of the many things I haven't shared until today is the part of my life and the lives of my two daughters. I was once married to their father for almost twenty years. Our religious beliefs and other things in our marriage had taken different paths so we divorced over seventeen years ago. We've had many ups and downs in our lives but one thing which never left either of us is a certain kind of love. My former husband has been battling colon cancer for over a year. A couple of week ago he learned he has the KRAS gene which has mutated his cancer. The oncologist has given him two to four months to live. We are beyond words of expressing our sadness so I leave today with an explanation for my absence and to let everyone know if you email, call, or have been missing me on YouTube or the Silhouette Plus forum my heart, spirit, and mind has been in other places. I thank the good Lord for keeping my faith strong even though my heart aches. God' will be done.

I leave this blog today with a message of love. Make every moment memorable, don't sweat the small stuff, take the time to smell the roses and spread the love. May this peony cutting file be a little reminder of making the best of every day. Love and hugs, Debbie

You can download the cutting file here. It's in .svg, .dxf, and Studio formats...enjoy! Peony and Leaves Cutting File

  2. Debbie, my heart, love and prayers go to you and your family. I know the heartache of losing someone so close, but I also know the feeling of having my Heavenly Father wrap His arms of peace and comfort around me. I pray that you feel His arms. He is always with us and He knows our heart.
