{big sigh}

Good morning.  I can't believe its been a whole month since I've been on here.  Geez

Lots has been going on around here.  Mainly we went to New Mexico to see my dad early in Jan.  Since I did not get a Dec. Daily done this year I thought I would do a Week In The Life documentation instead. 

And now in retrospect, I'm so glad I did.

Here is a post I wrote about my dad a few years ago.......just to give you a little background

I used the Becky Higgins Project Life Design A page protectors.  My Week In The Life album is 8.5x11 so I just cut these ones down.  I used clear packing tape to close up the open edges.  I also used the journaling cards from Becky Higgins.

The number stamp is the old Headline Numbers set.  I used regular whisper white cardstock for my larger journaling cards.  Becky, you should come out with some 4x6 journal cards.  Maybe you already do, I just haven't looked.

I am going to add a few last words to the back of this page.  I just haven't done it yet.  I'm so glad I got this done so soon after getting home because a few days later, my father passed away. 

I had a feeling it was getting to be time.  I knew before we got there that he was just waiting to see us all so we could say good bye. I'm so glad that we were able to.

We are going back next week for a memorial.  So it may be awhile again before I post anything.  I need to make thank you cards.

I am humbled and blessed to have such an outpouring of love and support from my friends.  Thank you all for being here. 

Blessings, b.

Love you dad.

I am so sorry for your loss, but I am also SO glad you got to see him in Jan and do your mini album! I know you will always cherish those memories! My parents are both in heaven now and I still miss them, although I am also thankful they have healthy bodies and are rejoicing with the angels instead of hurting here on earth. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers!

I am so sorry for your loss, but SO glad you were able to visit in Jan and finish your mini album. My parents are both in heaven, and I still miss them often. I am glad that they are no longer suffering, but there are just times when I want to share something with them. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers! Blessings, Linda

Beth, I am so sorry to read about your dad's passing. I could tell in your posts how much you loved him and will miss him. Just wanted to pass on my sincere sympathies and send you a virtual hug...take care.
