Happy Holidays from the Fritschmann's

GUESS WHAT? We are moving!!! We are heading out from Florida to California on Sunday...we are driving cross country! I can't believe it....we are going home! We are amidst boxes right now but are excited in so many ways! We will miss this house but we know going back is a great thing....and where we need to be!

Anyhow, I have a little treat to share with you all....Alec (my 8 year old) and I put together a video Christmas Card tonight! We hope you enjoy our little piece of HEAVEN! It has a few photos that have been taken over this last year! It is really neat! ENJOY!

Prayer Request Please!!!

Please pray for my husband David. Last Sunday he had a major seizure caused by a pain medication that was prescribed for his back. He stopped breathing and his heart stopped. He is home from the hospital now, but would like to ask for prayer requests for his recovery! I also wanted to let everyone know why I have been away from the site this week!

Here is what transpired....A week ago his primary care doctor prescribed a muscle relaxer for his back problems he is having. That medication cause a massive seizure. He stopped breathing and his heart stopped for over a minute. I was able to revive him through CPR – thank GOD I took the class and knew what I was doing!!! He went to the emergency room where he remained for about 9 hours. He was in excruciating pain – but the doctors discounted it just saying it was because he had the seizure! They wouldn’t give him ANY pain medication while in the ER!!! They did a bunch of XRAYS and tests then moved him to a regular room in the Critical Care Unit. About 30 hours later they discovered that both his arms were dislocated (they made a MAJOR mistake of negligence!!!) – and he had to be rushed in for emergency surgery to relocate both shoulders because he had lost all circulation in them and the joint was dying and they thought they were going to have to amputate both arms….but they were able to save them. He was seizure free the entire time in the hospital and they determined that the medication did in fact cause the episode. His chest and arms are completely black and blue from the relocation of his shoulders and is in terrible pain but he is finally home!

We have contacted an attorney and they have stated that we definitely have a malpractice suit on our hands! So now we have that to contend with but he is alive! And I praise God for that!

Thank you for you prayers for him and my family during this time!

Trying my heart.....

This week was a tough week with a couple of incidents on the site....

I feel as if I have a broken wing.....but I have decided that my spirit will NOT be broken....and I found a new fire within to push on! Anyway.....

The song playing in my head today is by Santus Real. It is called "I'm Not Alright" is a song that describes me from within....where my life has been....what my heart is feeling....and the healing I am finally going through! Here are the words....

"If weakness is a wound that no one wants to speak of
Then "cool" is just how far we have to fall
I am not immune, I only want to be loved
But I feel safe behind the firewall
Can I lose my need impress?
If you want the truth I need to confess
[Chorus:]I'm not alright, I'm broken inside
And all I go through, it leads me to you
Burn away the pride
Bring me to my weakness
Until everything I hide behind is gone
And when I'm open wide with nothing left to cling to
Only you are there to lead me on.
Honestly, I'm not that strong.
[Chorus:]I'm not alright... that's why I need you."

I just wanted to thank everyone who supports the work of Digital Scrapbook Designers....the time, effort, inspiration and energy is sooooo consuming....more than most know....and I thank you and everyone of them that contribute to our community! We are truly blessed!

Have a DIVINE Weekend!

Not tears of sadness but ones of pure joy! are a blessing to me...a friend I feel that was put here for angel...and one that is connected to me by are my soul sister....and I am so touched by your love and support through this layout!

I am amazed that people get it (my message)....get me for that matter! Life is so MUCH more than money, material things, hurtful words, is about how you live your life, love, inspire others and cherish what is truly important! It is about the legacy that you leave...!

A HEART of Thankfulness!

I have been reevaluating life lately! And I am really counting my blessings that I have an outlet for my creativity, have the opportunity to design, enjoy my passion and get paid for it...but even more that I have made incredible friends and have been so touched by an incredible group of women in the digi scrapping community!

I am VERY thankful for the talented group of "ANGELS" at 3Scrapateers...the Creative Team, Administration design team and Moderators!

To show my appreciation to the family of women (CT, Admin & Mods) who give their heart and souls everyday to 3Scrapateers and to our products that we designers produce, I made them a very special movie....

Grab your tissue boxes! I have put together a “LOVE & GRATTITUDE” MOVIE for all of the CT’s, ADMIN & MODS! It is my letter of thanks to them….for everything they have done, do and will continue to do in the future!

They have FOREVER changed my journey, and each one of them have impacted me in a special way and I just wanted to thank each one of these BEAUTIFUL women!

The movie is called “ Unwritten – The Journey of PURPOSE!”

This is an 11 minute movie in a Microsoft (WMV) Windows Media Video File. To view it, download zip. Unzip it. To play it you must have the latest version of Microsoft Windows Media Player…..

Better grab that tissue now! ENJOY! Thanks for listening to my rambles.....I am just very BLESSED!

Have a great day!

BoyZ ROCK My World!

Can I just say...

On Valentine's I threw my family a little "Candlelight Dinner" for four at "Chez Fritschmann!" It was a beautiful dinner of lobster, steak, sushi....ALL THE GOOD STUFF! It has been our tradition to do Valentine's dinner together as a family...and include our kiddos in the day of LOVE! And I am a French Trained Chef, so I can't see going out when I can put the extra special touches on a meal right here at home!!! This year I did it a bit funky...TONS of Candles, leopard print fur fabric, gold mesh, red and black accents, china and silk was just toooooo cool for words!

After Dinner....I got a gift that was truly from the heart from my 3 MEN (David and my two boys Alec & Taylor!)...a hand made card! But not just ANY handmade card! A GIANT ONE!

David secretly bought two pieces of red poster board...he got them into the house without me knowing...he taped them together....and made a HUGE card! Then he and each of the boys drew me a special picture....funny thing is I never knew my honey could draw more than a stick person....truly an amazing gift from the heart!
