Another thank you

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your comments. I really do appreciate all of you!

I'm sharing another thank you card with you today that I created in the same style as those in the Thanks guys! post. I'm very happy with this one and even happier that I was even able to get my favorite white on white into the design. Yay! :)

Some of you might recall that back in late March I decided I needed to get back into physical shape, having overcome some health issues that had been around for a few years. I also decided that I'd challenge myself to work up towards a marathon swim later this year and raise funds for a couple of military charities. I wrote about it all in the Battling Back blog.

Unfortunately last week I announced that the challenge itself has had to be postponed, due to an injury that I've been carrying almost since the beginning of my training. I've been supported by so many throughout the journey, and if I could, I'd create cards for them all, but this one is for Sarah, a friend and former international swimmer and coach who became my honorary coach. As soon as I told her of the injury sh tried to get me to rest and then rehab, but I'm stubborn and wasn't ready to give in so soon, knowing that even then I'd risk not being ready for the challenge.

Now I have accepted that it will need postponing and so this is to thank Sarah for being such a great and VERY patient friend.


I will be continuing with the Battling Back blog as I continue to work on my fitness and then rehab the injured arm. Posts there may not be very frequent for the time being, but I'd be honored if you'd perhaps consider following that one too, please?
