I really miss you

I am not a writer, yes, I do write proposals but they are technical and to the point. But here it is, I am opening my heart to you and sharing my raw emotions. 

On September 10th, 2017 the world lost a special woman, at least a woman special to me. Her name was Borka Andreeva, she was a math teacher, a mother,  a wife, a sister, a grandmother, and she was my aunt (she was my dad's sister). She was a woman with a HUGE heart. A role model how to be a wife, a mother, a sister, aunt. She gave the best hugs ever! Her love was always overflowing. Sometimes I even felt like she loved me more than my own mother. I spent days and nights with her. Her home was always open for me. She was an example for everyone. She is 99.99% the reason I love math so much!
If you ever needed anything she was always there to help. She was a great cook and she would never let you leave her house hungry. 
Besides a math teacher she was a great seamstress. 
No matter where she went she always brought presents for me, like I was her own daughter. 
She was one of the people who made biggest impact on me through my life and set a great example. She was a true Proverbs 31 woman and wife.

She loved flowers and her favorite were tulips. 
So this card is dedicated to you "tetka Borka". I really miss you and it pains me that I don't live closer to Macedonia. It pains me that I always thought I would see you one more time. That I would give you at least one more hug. It pains me that I can't be there for your funeral to say one final good-bye. I can't believe you are gone, and I don't want to.

I made this card using the Chameleon Color tops (I am taking part of Splitcoast Stampers Product focus details HERE) and couple sets from Power Poppy

My heart goes out to you Ilina! Those people that touch our lives are priceless and you were very blessed to have such a shining star in your world. I will keep you in my prayers and hope that this grief fades and helps those beautiful memories of your aunt bubble to the surface to help you to continue to honor such a wonderful woman.
