Grateful Friday

I'm so very grateful for the care of others.  That sounds so small, but it is really huge.  There are so many friends that have expressed their condolences and sympathy that I couldn't even begin to name them all.  Even so, I love each of them for their support - it has helped me so much just knowing others are grieving my loss with me.

I'm grateful for the peace of knowing that my beloved Mom is now in the presence of the LORD she loved so much.

I'm grateful for the time I spent with my Mom.  I know that not everyone has the opportunity to have such a woman in their life, and I am so very thankful and appreciative.  And that just makes me ache even more for those that haven't.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Yeshua HaMashiach.

I'm grateful for so many people that have extended their love and support to me and my family in this last week. I'm grateful for time; it is day 9 since she passed, and the pain of the initial shock is dulled. That is a good thing.

I'm grateful for willing help with the memorial service - what a huge undertaking to put together in less than a week, really. I'm feeling the pressure, that's for sure.

I'm thankful to know that time does indeed continue, and this time will pass. As precious as it is, it is difficult.

I am so grateful for the time you spend sharing yourself with us. In both your joys and your sorrows,even in this time of deep grief, you share. You will likely never know how far-reaching your thoughts have been.

Sometimes it is the reminder that we are not alone that makes all the difference in the world when it seems we've lost someone so dear to us. Your mom was special to many of us. I love you and your family more than you know.

Our History with Saber Forge

UPDATE, April 19, 2012: we purchased new sabers from Ultra Saber LLC. To see a review, go HERE.

Saber Forge's Ambassador saber hilt
This post is to document and record the history of our experience with a company called Saber Forge. I would like this information to serve as information and perhaps a warning to all that are interested in purchasing a machined lightsaber, and/or are considering Saber Forge.

Saber Forge makes and sells lightsabers to be used as props with Star Wars costumes. When we started looking to purchase lightsabers that had the ability to light, Lisa posted for information on the Rebel Legion website. She was contacted by Mr. Phil Isherwood, owner of SaberForge.

It is most unfortunate that we have had problems with the sabers. I love the hilt, to be honest, and felt that we got what we paid for; however, the lingering problems and now the complete lack of customer service is most troubling.

Just Throwin' It Around

I have a friend who just got engaged to be married. As he was detailing the way he proposed to his beloved, something he said caught my attention. In the course of his adult life, dating and living, he had promised himself that he would only use the actual word love towards the one who he was going to marry. He further explained that it was his thought that people 'throw the word love around carelessly' and that it had a special meaning, one meaning. For him, it was only to be used in speaking to his soon-to-be wife.

I can see his point, especially when thinking about dating. I know it happens, all too often, that relationships proceed a little too quickly and emotions peak prompting hasty pronouncements of love and devotion only to be rescinded down the line, after the passion has worn off. Careful and introspective we must be when experiencing and building a new relationship that we don't bite off more than we can chew, so to speak. I agree with my engaged friend - w…


I am a maker and collecter of Artist Trading Cards. In my world, we call them "Letterboxer Trading Cards", because they are made by letterboxers and they must have a hand-carved stamp featured on the card. I have made hundreds, even thousands of these cards, and enjoy the hobby immensely (samples shown are a few of my cards). I also collect them from other artists and letterboxers, and have a collection numbering (also) in the thousands.

So, here's the confession: I HATE LOGGING THEM! Yes, that's right, I said 'hate'. I know, that's pretty strong, but it is the only way I can adequately describe the feeling of dread that comes over me the second after I enjoy receiving them in the mail. If I were a disciplined person, I would immediately make my way to the computer, sign into to my favorite letterboxing site and let these wonderful friends know how much I love their efforts, thus easing their minds that their hard work arrived safe and sound in my care.
