A Special Butterfly

Some cards are just hard to make.  So hard.   July is a very difficult month for us as we anticipate the flood of emotions that come on our Eli's birthday on August 2nd.   It has been a struggle for weeks now.   On Saturday we heard the news that another family had lost their sweet girl to spinal muscular atrophy.    The Strong family has been an amazing inspiration to the SMA community and work tirelessly on helping other families and finding a cure.   Their beautiful Gwendolyn was seven and lived an inspiring life.   Many of us have spent years and years sharing in her life and struggles and just love the family.   Our community was heartbroken to hear of her passing.   I cried myself to sleep that night, but managed to channel some of that emotion into a card.   Butterflies are their thing, so I hope this is the right card to send.

Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.
