Sherrie's House...

Who Wouldn't want to stay 
in this snuggle room?!?
Whenever I go to visit my sister, Sherrie,
she rolls out the 
Pink Shabby Chic Carpet!
 This was her daughter's room, who moved out this fall.
I have now claimed it as MY room.
Yes, other people have stayed in that room.
Little do they know that it is really mine. :)
Oh, and Sherrie's sewing room.
 I go into that room and I snuggle in
 and I sleep so soundly.
 I love my sister's home.
And, I love staying there and spending 
so much concentrated time with her
 and her family.
 We have had two really stressful and sad years
with our Mom's sickness and death,
and with Sherrie's FIGHT against cancer.
 We have had a stress and a sadness 
hovering over us.
But, this visit wasn't stressful or sad.
It was a CELEBRATION of Sherrie being cancer free!
She got her port out, 
and for those of you who have experienced cancer 
you know how wonderful this milestone is.
 So, even with this little surgery,
we laughed, and shopped, and laughed, and ate,
 and laughed, and talked, and laughed,
 She is such a joy in my life.
 My best friend.
I Am Blessed!

Lovely to have room to saw and being surrounded by your pretty materials and things... it will be awhile before my kids move out... my husband will want a pool table in the boy's room, and I... a room like yours in the girl's room! :-)

Often, even if I'm young, I have seen many things very orrible, children killed,people with a gorgeus soul sick and so bad history..but I WANT TO THINK that it's a reason for everithing,I want to believe that God is looking for us, with angels and our dears who were died...I wish you and your sisters that angels give you their courage.
