   Wow, we are 2/3 of the way through the month and I have nothing creative to share, not even pictures of my  wonderful  family ~    I will try to correct that real soon

    My daughters, grandchildren and I  had to face another sadness in our lives.  Another death of a loved one,  yes  3  in 21 months to the day , but who  is counting ? !    My girls  loved this man that chose to be "grandpa " to them all of their lives..  A lesson in life that family is not always  connected  by blood.  They were given years of  happiness,  love  and  good memories, along with teachings of  life, respect,and all  HE thought  was  right and important. Tho we may not agree,  but to be able to still care, love and respect  is a characteristic  beyond  my words.
 I am proud  he was able to  to  smile when he was with  my girls  and then their children too .   And  so glad  he  was able to  make  their life  better in  some ways...
Life is full of mysteries,  some never to be  solved  .

    It was  hard the last few months, "knowing" , yet not knowing  "when ".   I am so proud of my girls, for  giving him his  due  respect that they felt was  right... A life lesson for sure ~  no matter what  others saw , felt   or thought,  they were able to do what was in their heart, and important to them..  That was  his choice,  for them to be there  til  the end ...

    Some times  just sharing words and pictures  are necessary.   Thank you all for  allowing me  that privilege .
    I do hope  for normality in my life again, ~  seems like I have been here before ~
so I hope I  find my calm,  my peace...
  When I cannot  reach  others  with  kindness, I try to  still find a way to  express my  heart..
    So now I am off to try to find a space in this mini brain  to  go back to  my  passion...create and share

    Thanks for stopping by,  remember ,  the lone chair is there  for you to sit a while,
  sure wish we could have some tea  and visit...
  Take care , see you all soon I hope... With a smile in my heart
