Thanks & gift card holder

Thanks girls for the prayers. I can't say we are ok but I can say that we are taking some steps towards being ok. Maybe its better this time because we finally just said we have had enough. I guess I feel like I have a little control back over my life for the moment and I need that. DH feels sure that we will be contacted again about Isaiah. We've decided to move on. I think we both feel like we just can't give anymore to this situation and I feel like its a situation where we will never truly "have" him. May not make sense but its such a long drawn out story and complicated. I know in my heart that I am ready to move on and heal from this and that means letting go. I appreciate all your prayers and support. I feel like its consumed who we are for too long and we are no closer to a resolution today than we were when started in July.

So enough of that for now... I decided to do something constructive today and made gift card holders and wanted to share b/c they are super easy and you don't even have to have a cricut to do them. I got the directions from My Pink Stamper's blog. She made them to hold cocoa but I just measured them to hold gift cards instead. They are quick to make. When you pull the ribbon, the card slides out. Here's the ones I made today.

Close up: I hung them on my tree. Smile

those are the best! I love them. I am going to bookmark that to use for birthday gift cards. I don't give many giftcards at Christmas usually.

Yours look so good!

You just keep finding the strength within you, I don't know how you do it. And I hate that you've struggled so much with Isaiah's situation. The whole thing seems unfair. That poor little boy, I can't even imagine how he's approaching it all in his head. Anyhow, still keeping all of you in my prayers.

I totally dig those card holders! How clever!!!!!!!
