Good Morning Ladies,


Welcome to the Autism Awareness Blog Hop.  If you are stopping here from the talented  Zenita - ScrappnwithZ blog than you are in the right place.  If you get lost you can always start at the beginning with my good friend Cori at createdbycori who has worked for months to bring together this group of ladies for World Autism Awareness Day.


Today, people all over the world will "light it up blue" to shine a light on Autism.   Today I am thinking about several of my girlfriends who have children with Autism, they are my heroes.


Here is my card:


The sentiment reads ~ " We know God wants His best for us, we just don't know how difficult His best will be".


I always have to give away a little candy for my blog hops, so here is some for you.



To win this candy, please become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment telling me that you are a follower. If you are already a follower, just leave me a message saying hi.  I will announce the winner on Tuesday, April 3rd.


Ok, your next stop on the blog hop is the super talented Colleen Creations by Colleen
Hugs!

  5. Beautiful card! I am a new follower but I dont need to win any blog candy. :) Thanks for supporting you friends who have children with autism. People never realize how even a smile will make someone elses day a whole lot better. Even Having children without autism is a tough challenge and to know you have people there to support you is a wonderful feeling.

  6. Beautiful card, Chriss. The sentiment is OH so true!! Those that have autistic children are my hero's too. I don't know if I could manage or have the patience as all of these women do! God only blesses those that can handle it, and for that they will be some of the strongest women! : )

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."
- Carol L. Riser, Autumn
