Hello all friends and fellow shabby-chicer's! I've been away this past week. Sadly my father-in-law just passed away. He was a wonderful man with beautiful blue eyes and a loving heart. We're going to miss him dearly. Now I'm back home again, trying to play catch up and trying to regroup. I've suffered loss before and it always feels as if the world should stop because our hearts are breaking. How can things continue on around us as if nothing has changed when everything has just come crashing down around us? I have often wished that life came with a remote. We could fast forward through the awkward and uncomfortable times, (like high school!), and pause during those precious moments that we want to last forever. And best of all we could rewind to undo hurts we have caused, and be able to once again enjoy the company of those we have lost. But there is no remote and life goes on. We begin to settle back into old routines. The world is righting itself again, or rather we are picking ourselves up to match those who have remained standing. In time all will be well again. Different, and sad at times, but still good. There is much to do and work and responsibilites are still there waiting for us to pick up where we left off. So now that I am back, there is much to be done. I have minature houses to paint and decorate, vintage finds waiting to be photographed and lots of laundry!!! So off I go to get to it all... It's good to be home!
