I forgot I had one more grad card to make for my granddaughters friend. They are having their party together and I wanted to make her a card as well. My sister in law will be coming here and we will go to the party together.  This time it is real - I am getting help from an agency. I called Thursday and they will send someone to assess DH tomorrow.  I am asking for three days a week and they have a minimum of three hours. So they will shower and dress hubby and do housework until the three hours is up. If they just sweep and mop I will be in heaven. They even cook! I am hoping maybe they can come from 10-l each time. I am thinking maybe I could go to lunch with my friend that keeps asking me when I would like to go for lunch with her. Maybe. I won't leave for a while until I know they get along and he is happy with her. I hope it goes well tomorrow and they can set up a schedule for us.
So I have high hopes again. Be kind to one another.

Hi Brenda :) xx
That is a smart card-perfect for the grad!
So happy for your news-I hope that it will make a huge difference to you,not only from the help point of view which will thankfully lighten your workload-but for the fact that it will free up some time for you again,to enjoy the things you like to do without having to worry about what is going on at home.Folks who care for family members at home,are so selfless-and give up everything to care for those they love,but there should always be time for you,without any guilt or worry-taking a break will re charge your batteries and lift your spirits,and you will come home refreshed-good for you :)
Have a happy day,
Love and hugs,Nessa xxx

Oh Brenda, here I am so far behind once again! You have been on my mind a lot though. I love this beautiful CAS grad card. Will have to pin it and make some like it. You always inspire me my friend! Hugs, Brenda
