We have officially announced my daughter's acceptance to
Savannah College of Art and Design
and we couldn't be more thrilled!
So... today is my very first "official"
Every Wednesday from here until... well, whenever :)
I will be creating and posting cards which I plan
to send to my gal while she is away.
SCAD's mascot is a BEE...
how fun will those cards be to create, right?!
But I also love love love butterflies because
God is constantly asking us to sit inside
a cocoon like experience to have us emerge
I have seen my gal go through many
cocoon experiences only to come out
more beautiful than every before.
God is doing such a great thing with/for/through her.
She loves the Lord and I can't wait to
watch her flutter about in school!
Each Wednesday, you will be seeing quite a few
BUMBLEBEE and BUTTERFLY
greeting cards which I hope to not only
cheer my girl on while she is away but
also inspire you to have a cheerful heart as well.
And although there are no "bees" or "butterflies" on
my card posted above, there is a very special image...
and that is a sketch my gal drew while she was
surrounded by homework after vacation.
I just love that little grumpy face and
it depicts me perfectly for how I feel about
having to say "good-bye."
I refuse to do it!
I just won't!
I will end our conversations with
"I love you" and that's that!
(insert biggest cheesy grin as possible)
