Catching up

Well, I am a bit overwhelmed today with all that I need to do after being gone and realizing what I've been through and what my dad has been through and still has yet to get through. It is an experience so intense and full of details I find difficult to share with anyone but my hubby who knows the ins and outs and between the lines. Anyway, it may take me longer than I thought to feel normal and behave normally . . . we'll see.

It was such a pleasure to have so many wonderful messages waiting for me and some very fun and special mail. I received one of the beautiful pieces I won from the One World One Heart blog event. I won a beautiful necklace from Bonnie at Some Pink Flowers. What fun it was to open the package with such anticipation of what was inside. It was so beautifully packaged, with extra effort required, I controlled my excitement and opened it slowly and enjoyed every little surprise inside.

How lucky I am! The incredible necklace, the gorgeous packaging, and the yummy extras just thrilled me beyond words. Be sure to stop by Bonnie's blog. She is very talented and has so many wonderful things to share! Thank you Bonnie for everything!

Wooo wheee, that's a sweet looking package. (And that sounded waaaay skeezier than I meant)
I love how the box is decoupaged, or at least I love how it looks like that! Gorgeous, not to mention the goodies inside. The necklace is amazing, so pretty, you are one lucky duck!!! One lucky FLYING duck! So you deserve all the goodness. :)
Big smiles!

It is so draining to have to go through those things with parents. It was a year and a half ago that I almost lost my father. It was hard to find my energy back.

Those are beautiful welcome home gifts!

Wonderful goodies you received. Love the colors of the necklace. My mothers health is failing. 1 year ago I placed her in an assisted living. I was so amazed at how kind and supportive the blog world has been. It is so hard to have the roles reverse and be the parent of your parents. Making life changing decisions for them. Hand in there
