Hello again! Here is my final card for the Hop to Stop Domestic Violence, which is being hosted by the lovely and talented Becca Cruger. Today's card is another simple creation, and the stamp is one of many fabulous stamps from the set "All About Hope" from Unity Stamps.
According to Merriam-Webster, HOPE is defined as such: to cherish a desire with anticipation. I cannot think of a better word to share with someone who has or is enduring domestic violence. Typically, no person chooses to be in a relationship in which he/she will be harmed physically, emotionally and/or psychologically, and most people do not envision their child/children growing up in an unsafe environment. Most of us enter into relationships and create families out of love. Unfortunately, once the abuse becomes present, it is extremely difficult for the victim to leave. Oftentimes, it takes many attempts before a person chooses to escape the destructive environment of domestic violence; and sadly, for some, they lose their lives in the process. If you know someone who is experiencing domestic violence, please don't judge...help them find HOPE in what may seem to him/her a hopeless situation. Love, support, guidance, patience, and understanding is what he/she needs. If you need to talk with someone, call the 24/7 National Domestic Violence Helpline at 1-800-799-7233...the call is confidential and could help save a life--yours or someone you love.
I thank you for dropping by and visiting for a bit. It truly does brighten my day!
Hugs and smiles!
I kept trying to capture the shimmer in the pictures. Hopefully, you are able to see it in one of these pics. Oh how this girl stinks at photography! ;)
