Well THAT was unexpected!


Needless to say I did not expect to fall off the earth from July to September..but who does? In my case life got very sad very fast .. After an 8 year battle with cancer my Father died in August. I was very lucky to get 10 blessed days with him and to be so lucky as to be with him as he died. During that time I got to spend time with my sister, reconnect with two women who were like mothers to us and get to know our most wonderful Aunt Ruthie. I will miss my father so very much, in fact I am not sure it's really sunk in that he is gone. I am not sure how long it will take but I am sure that when it really gets here it's going to be a whopper.


During those 10 days with him I was able to take him to fish on his beloved lake and get this photo.. I miss you daddy!

I was glad to see you were back, but I was really sorry to hear about your loss. Glad that you had that time together - that fishing photo is priceless.

Ah Maddie - was just dropping in to see what you were up too. So very sorry to hear about your dad. I'm sure you will treasure your last days with him always.
Doesn't it seem like our parents will just be there forever - but then they are not :(

Take care,

Hugs. I'm so sorry. But it was great that he opened up to you & explained some things that made the past make sense.
