My dear Susan passed away Aug. 6, 2018. Just days short of our anniversary. I carry on this business to keep busy as much as honoring her. Her words below bring a flood of emotions and tears. I cant bear editing, updating or even deleting. So I share, so you might understand how we started and how much these simple little pieces of glass bring joy and comfort.
from Susan -
There are multiple points in my life that I would consider “defining”. This was one of them. Getting hit with Stage 4 breast cancer drove me to reconsider the track of my life. I was in a dismal state where my meditation and comfort in my faith took over my mind and my heart to a place that I finally came to understand as inner peace. I had never known what it was to stare at something with such magnifying precision until them. I had never known a love of life such as I did then at that moment when I asked God, “Why me?” I never got angry at Him, but I stood resolutely in the comfort that He gave me one more day. In that gift, I could change everything, in how I chose to live, in the ways I could touch others’ lives and how to love life and everything about it. I will never forget that day. That day will live forever in my memory as the catalyst to live every single day to the utmost. Everything I will do, I believe in doing in a positive light. I believe in thinking differently. The way I will do things differently is by creating a product, some product that is beautiful and will bring joy, a smile, only positive to those who use it. With encouragement from my loving family, I was moved to launch JustSuncatchers.com. Let our creative designs and themes fill your heart with joy!
