Hang in There!

I made this card for a coworker who is going through a rough time right now. She is 5 months pregnant and her husband is starting a new business with his father (who he doesn't get along with...??). For some reason with this new job the money doesn't come in until a while after the job is done or something--I don't really understand it. They have been using her paychecks to pay the bills and don't have anything left over, so her mom has been buying their groceries for 4 weeks now. Between not having any money, listening to her husband gripe about his father, and being pregnant she is really stressed out. This is her first pregnancy too so this should be an exciting and enjoyable time for her, not a time where she should be burdened with these other worries. I put a Wal Mart gift card in this for her. I wish it could have been for a larger amount but I wanted to do something for her and encourage her to keep her chin up.

Mary, The cards are great you are doing a wonderful job. I really loved the Mother's day gift. Congratulations on the first communion and Holly's pictures are great they both are growing up real fast. Cindy B.
