I missed taking part in the chain last week and didn't want to skip another week.
I have just begun to pull out my crafts from last year in order to prep for this years fairs. I am hoping it will lift my spirits and put me in the right frame of mind for the up coming Holidays.
My father passed away May 2 and I am feeling like I would like to skip all the traditional holidays. It feels like with out him why bother.
I know it is normal to feel this way and I do know the true reason I celebrate is the birth of my savior Jesus Christ. I am reminded of his love every day.
We have had cold temps ,frost and snow already but as I looked out my window this morning I saw Gods work.
There was a beautiful Clematis blossom. It is on a vine that looks dead next to hydrangeas burned by frost.
To me this is a God wink. a reminder that to everything a season.
I am grateful my father is no longer suffering and I am grateful I had so many wonderful years with him. I am just human and miss him dearly.
Well back to the chain , here are a few crafts of mine.
I will be pulling out my supplies and sewing up mice and bears and all that is wonderful for a holiday fair. I will put on a happy face and remember how truly blessed I am.
Thank you for allowing me to share my good days and hard days. I am blessed to have you all as friends.
