So I've been lost for awhile...so...sooo sorry. Life has taken an uncertain curve that I wasn't expecting. Our family has been mourning the death of my dear uncle, as well as celebrating the life he lived. He was one of the most intelligent, hard-working, teddy-bear of a man I've ever had the pleasure of knowing and I will miss him so much! Death has a way of making you look so hard at life, sometimes the simpler things fall by the wayside. My blog will attest to that :)
My extended family in CA have begun a long, difficult journey and I miss the fact that I won't be there to walk along side of them when they need a hand to hold or shoulder to cry on. I've enjoyed every second of being with them...even the heart-breaking moments. I love them...all of them and I pray God will continue to shelter them with comfort and peace.
Now that we're home (we made 3 trips driving to CA in 5 weeks) I feel behind, and a little overwhelmed. My summer has definitely been different...not what I was planning of course, but it's almost over and I'm sad to see not much accomplished. I have, however been able to sew lots of neat things, but failed to capture them with the camera. You will just have to take my word for it :)
Hopefully the kiddos and I will get to do some fun outings before the dreaded "first" day of school. I am not looking forward to it...I really do like having them with me. It's all going way to fast, my kiddos growing up & all. I'm going to be one of the sad mama birds when all my baby birds leave the nest. I will not know what to do with myself...
For now, I will continue to enjoy them...all the time I have with them. They grow up fast, and fretting over it doesn't stop it...I just lose valuable time with them. So...enjoy your kiddos ladies, don't let time pass you by...we only get one life to live, enjoy them!
