We Lost a Family Member Today
I'll be away from the computer for the next week. My husband's father passed away this morning at the age of 78. He's been ill for sometime, but that provides no consolation for his loss. I only met him a few times, but he seemed a dear, sweet man. I'm sure will be missed by his family and friends. I know my husband regrets we didn't live closer so he could have spent more time with his dad, but sometimes life gets in the way of good intentions.
So rather than share my experiences from camping this weekend as I had intended, and hopefully bring about a smile or giggle, instead I feel the need to share a moment to bond with you. Take the time to tell someone you love how you feel. Today is called the 'present' because it is a gift, and none of us know how many more tomorrows we have to share. Make them count.
So, I'm off to do laundry and pack for the trip to Nebraska. Keep us in your prayers for a safe journey there and back. I'll be in touch when I return. Before I sign off, I do want to say again how much I appreciate each and every one of you who continue to come here and read "Dishin It Out." It's days like this, I wish I had nothing to share except love. :)
