Well, I found myself in need of a sympathy card this week. I was really sad to see my friend notifying people that her father-in-law had passed away. I grew up in a tiny little town, and her father-in-law was a teacher there in the middle school. I was super shy when I was younger, and I was petrified to have him for a teacher. He was known to be pretty strict, a no-nonsense kind of guy. He taught art and science. Kind of a funny mix, now that I think about it. Anyway, he ended up being one of my favorite teachers. He really wanted his students to excel. I believe he'd have been happy to have every student learn more about every subject than he himself knew. He loved kids to explore and learn everything that they could. And I loved that about his classes. My friend posted how hard it was going to be to tell her kiddos when they woke up that grandpa wasn't going to be around anymore. Well, I was really sad and didn't feel like making a card at all. My blogging friend Chris had made a beautiful card for her friend, and I just decided to take the easy route and case her gorgeous card. Enjoy your Friday, go hug all your loved ones!
