Hello my blogger friends.
Hope you are having a nice "middle of the week".
I just wanted to make a quick stop to show you this layout I made for the Scrapping Everyday Miracles challenge. The direction is to scrap about something sad. Not everything is in pink around here, you know... but God is always there to remind us that all these things are part of life. I always say us humans need the sweet and the bitter, so we can really understand what sweet is and appreciate it when we have it.
So I decided to scrap about my dog-son. He was sick the other day and he was very weak. We were very worried and didn't know what to do. We had taken him to the doctor and he was on medication but still we did not see improvement.
I could not take him out of my mind while working and asked to myself, what are we doing wrong? I asked God to please help us understand so we can help him. He is very important for us and has given us so much joy in our lives.
There was one day that he was so weak that we really got scared. It was a work day and I stayed with him during the morning to watch him. Then my husband stayed in the afternoon... He was the one who received the call from the doctor telling him to take our dog for hospitalization because some analysis had came out and he was not good.
Long story short... he was with the Vet 2 nights, he recovered... but recently got sick again, and we found out it was this virus that stays in and out from the body (it hides) and thus the in and out fevers and so on. Now he's still taking medication and getting better and better.
The page is titled "Feeling Blue" and I cut the silhouette in the photo and added a white cardstock thin border to provide some "light" to that magic moment when I was trying to cheer my dog up for a photo but all he did was to put his head in my lap and I kissed him, and took the photo.
Journaling will be hidden in the little envelope at left and it says outside: skies are gray!
When my dog is sick I feel my heart is in pieces. That's why I covered this chipboard heart with pieces of paper and some outside of the heart to show that. (I now realize the date is missing in the journaling card in the photo, but it will be there before storing in the album... LOL!)
Well... hope your gray moments are less than the pink ones... but remember they are necessary.
Have a great rest of the week.
