So Its been a busy week and weekend. I was able to do some things in my studio/art room. Nothing finished, I tend to work on 3 or 4 things at a time. Just works best for me that way.

Tomorrow I have to get some reorganizing done in my studio. I am just not liking the flow of the room any more.

It has also been a time of memories. It was this month that my dad passed away and my mom came to live with us. It was 10 years ago that all that happened. My mom is gone now too. Has been for a few years.

It was the hardest and best thing I ever did. We ever did. Having my mom here for the last 4 years of her life was an amazing time. It was full of happiness and sadness. Joy and frustration.

I am going to share a little about this each day this week. the things we learned about people and each other. What we learned about caring for someone very ill and elderly.

Here is a picture of my parents the day after they were married and my dad was headed back from leave. He was in the Air Force in world war II.

Hope your weekend has been blessed!!!

  1. It sounds like you have some wonderful memories. I'm so glad you were able to enjoy your mom's company, and such big life changes, even after the loss of your father. I don't think one is ever truly over the loss of a parent, please accept my deepest sympathy.

  2. What great memories. Just stopping by from the Cricut Circle Blog Motivation group to give you a nudge.

  3. Beautiful memories. My mom and dad are gone too. It is good to remember... {{{Hugs}}} from the Cricut Circle Blog Motivation group.

  4. Sorry for your loss. The memories are what sustain us. I am here from the circle mb and giving you a gentle nudge.
