I'll Be There For You...

Welcome to Stamping Bella's Show & Tell Challenge for November!

"So no one told you life was going to be this way.
Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's DOA.
It's like your always stuck in second gear,
Well, it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.
But, I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.
I'll be there for you, like I've been there before.
I'll be there for you, cause you're there for me, too."
(Copyrighted by the Rembrandts.)

Sound familiar? It's the theme song from Friends! On the simplest level, Friends was a sitcom (one of the most successful sitcoms in television history, btw) about a group of six people who were there for each other. Despite their shortcomings, failures, and sometimes hurtful words and actions, these six friends~Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Joey, Phoebe, and Ross~forgave and were were truly thankful for one another.

Here in the U.S., November means Thanksgiving. (I can already smell the roast turkey and pumpkin pie!) Our Canadian sisters celebrated their Thanksgiving holiday last month. Whether you celebrate a formal Thanksgiving or not, this month's challenge is to honor a friend or family member, someone for whom you are truly thankful.

I made this card for my mom. I know that she knows that I love her. I also know that I don't tell her that I love her often enough. Nor do I let her know how much I appreciate and treasure her. So here's to you, Mom!
I used Stamping Bella's "10 Things I Love ABout You." This is such a versatile stamp~it'll be great in scrapbooks, too! Now I just need to hope that my mom can read my chicken-scratched list. (No, don't strain your eyes~I wrote it after I took the photo.) (Supplies.)

You can participate in this challenge here. A winner will be randomly drawn from among the participants and will win a $15 gift voucher to Stamping Bella! So come join the fun!

And Mom, remember,
"I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.
I'll be there for you, like I've been there before.
I'll be there for you, cause you're there for me, too."

I love you, Mom!
