My very sweet friend, Millie, lost her son to a long-term illness a few weeks ago. This was the card I made for her to express my sympathy for her loss.
We became friends when Millie, her daughter and son-in-law started coming to our Mah Jongg group at our local senior center some years ago. She is a bit famous there and in our county senior network because she will be celebrating her 102nd. birthday in a couple of months. She is cute as a button, dresses like a fashion diva and is always smiling and warm. You can’t let that fool you, though, because she will beat the pants off of you at Mah Jongg!!
I have decided that Millie’s longevity and sparkle is due to the fact that she makes her own wine at home and has a small glass every evening. She says that the key to a good life is never holding a grudge. I think I hang on to the wine idea because the other would be so much harder for me to do!
Miss Millie is an elegant woman and I wanted to make a card for her that reflected that. I hope I have achieved that goal. She tells me she frames my cards and hangs them so I have to be on my toes when I make a card for this dear lady! Blessings and hugs, Millie…
