Have You Had Your Daily Hug?

This card was inspired by my daughter, who has been rather sad this week, as one of her teachers at her high school passed away on Monday from pancreatic cancer.  The teacher was 46, and had three children.  She had been fighting her cancer battle for 15 years, when the doctors had told her originally that she would have 6 months to live. She inspired the students at the high school and people in the community to raise over $45,000 for Tackle Cancer.  She was an inspiration to my daughter. 

The first thing my daughter did when she saw me that afternoon was to give me a huge hug and tell me she loved me.  So I made this card for her.  Go give your kids a hug.  Or your mom. Or a friend. Life is precious.
