One of my goals for this year is to be positive no matter what the circumstances are. I know some days won’t be as easy as it sounds. I can either walk away from the source of the problem , or I can live my life around it, knowing that there is nothing I can do, but I can still be happy.
Last Wednesday, my grandma passed away. She was very old and sick. she lost her sight more than a year ago. Wednesday, she went to take a nap and didn’t woke up. I’m thankful she died peacefully. I miss her, but I thank Heavenly Father for the best grandma He gave me, and that I know, she is now in a better place, she is not longer sick and now she surrounded by her love ones.

Una de mis metas para este año es ser positiva sin importar las circunstancias. Se que algunos dias no será tan fácil como suena, puedo alejarme del problema, o puedo seguir mi vida alrededor de el, sabiendo que no hay nada que yo pueda hacer; pero que puedo seguir siendo feliz
El miércoles pasado, murió mí abuelita materna. Ya estaba muy viejita y enferma. Perdió la vista hace mas de un año. El miércoles, fue a tomar una siesta y ya no despertó. Estoy agradecida de que murió muy tranquila. La extraño, pero le agradezco al Padre Celestial por la grandiosa abuela que El me dio, y que yo se, que ahora ella esta en un mejor lugar, que ya no esta enferma y que esta rodeada de sus seres queridos.

In her honor and for my goal of being positive, I changed the saying on the next card I made. The origianl was "I miss you".
It is for Reto Latino, challenge # 39 , Inky Impressions, challenge #29 , ABC challenge and Your next Stamp Challenges challenge #9.

Reto Latino gave us the sketch and color combo. Inky Impressions challenged us to use a charm anywhere in the card.
ABC challenge N is for New, I used my new prismacolor blending pencil and Martha Stewart punch. Your Next Stamp Challenge also challenges to use a charm.
