Okay - I don't want to believe that saying is true because at midnite on New Year's Eve I was sitting in a hospital room watching fireworks taking pictures through the window!
Had I known your mom was in ER I could have gone down & visited with her!!!

Cindy Elam

Oooo, I'm a proud owner if one if these cards, and it's even more GOJUS in real life! Glad your mom is okay, Jan. You're right, every moment is precious.

Jan, this is beautiful. I ordered this set in the demo pre-order but haven't had a chance to play. I was sleeping at midnight -- sure hope I don't spend the whole year asleep. I definitely get the driving part. Drove across NY State twice during the holidays so that my daughter could spend some time with her family!
As always -- TFS!

Susan Carlson

I was "controlling the chaos" with three of my four kids at midnight. I'm sure I'll be doing that all year! Glad your mom is okay. I'd better visit my mom sometime soon. She only lives a few blocks away.

Cindy Beach

Oooh, Jan, YTIG, stands for Yes This Is GO-JUS! I can't wait to get this set, LOVE what you've done here! I"m needing a dose of spring today...
I so agree about time with parents. If it helps to know, my Mom seems totally out of it with a UTI. Now at first signs of her seeming to be under par, or not making sense in what she says, we check for that. More often than not, the antibiotics set her back to normal.

Jen Timko

I was so happy to see this little spring beauty in the swaps! Just lovely! Glad your mom is feeling better and that you got to spend time with your parents over the holidays.


you are just crazy talented! this is lovely!
