Oh my dear girlies....
I've been one busy chickie lately and have been such a lousy blogger.
I'm up to my eyeballs in projects, so I'll try to post and visit as often as I can while I'm making the 'ol cottage pretty.
I've MISSED you!
I was thinking, this morning...........I'm the EXACT same age my dad was when he passed away.
I was 27 then and he was nearly 60.
I can remember thinking that he was soooo old.
Well, now I'm not exactly thinking that.
He had cancer and declined over two years. I went to see him every single day.
I learned to do needlepoint while I sat with him. I finished one project and have never been able to pick up another piece since then.
Now that I'm approaching that SIX-O milestone I'm realizing how much he still had to do.
He had worked so hard for sooo many years and was getting ready to retire........to spend time with family and relax a bit.
My daughter was the ABSOLUTE joy of his life. She adored him and he was crazy about her. She was only seven when he went to heaven. I realize now how many things he's missed.
And, the things about my dad that my daughter's missed.
I hope I'm around for a long time. I soooo want to see my little grandson grow up.
Time is so relative, isn't it?
My daughter is the same age I was when she graduated from high school.
She thought I was soooo old then.
And, my little grandson is the same age I was when my favorite grandma passed away. I was crazy about her. She was the PERFECT grandma. I think I was actually only with her four or five times in my entire life, she lived so far away. But, I felt her love.
I told my girl recently that she was nearly the same age I was when her dad and I got divorced after 21 years of marriage..........she couldn't believe it.
She thought I was ancient.....but she is sooo young! :-)
I'm thinking about you dear ones.......and praying for you too.
God bless each and every one of you sweeties.
Lovies and huggies,
