For my friend

Ok so if you have visited my blog in the last week or so you know about my friends little boy Porter age 3.  He is at Children's Hospital in Seattle recovering from brain surgery (to be reffered to as BS from now on! Per her sister!)  Anyway he isn't doing as good as hoped and has different struggles daily.  Which makes her struggle.   She is AMAZING (this is her second child with serious health issues, you can read about Payton here on make a wish) and I feel like I should DO something, which we all know I am no brain surgeon (or heart surgeon), so I can't really help.  SO I did what I can do and made this for her:

So this says "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present."  At the beginning of her latest trial she emailed her friends and at the end was this quote.  Of course she probably isn't feeling like these days after the surgery are a gift, I'm sure she is glad that yesterday is HISTORY!  :)  I hope that sooner than later, each day will be a gift to her again.

Love you tons my friend!  Please know that we at our house are praying for your family!

For those of you that are from cricut blogs this is a board I got from micheals, and I painted it with black acrylic paint.  I let it dry, and then I painted a cream color over the top letting the black show through.  Then I used my gypsy and welded the letters together.  It is gypsy font on both of the fonts.  The flower and little flourish are from accent essentials.

Ok so I decided to enter this into a linky party at Getting Cricky Because I made it for a friend that I just love a ton! 


  1. oh my goodness Jenae!!! I looove it. it's really beautiful. love you girl.
