My dad

I never thought the day would come so soon, without even knowing that this would be the last time I get to see my dad. But he is in peace now and very happy where he is. I spent the weekend with him not knowing it would be the last...ever....I just wanted to share this because I truly believe that life is really too short and you never know what tomorrow will be. And right now although I am feeling very sad, I am also happy for him that I don't have to see him suffering anymore.
You will probably think that I am nuts for posting this, but for me it is good therapy. I made this
yesterday for a Mother's Day gift.
The box is the Sizzix french fry box which I put 2 together and cut an oval out with a nestabilities petite oval die.
Stamps are all Dandelion Designs. I did cut the balloons off the bear.
And here is the top view of the boxes put together. Sorry the photo is kind of blurry but I've been an emotional roller coaster all day.
I may be taking a little break for now since I probably need it.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great Mother's Day weekend!!!

Oh Cheryl, I am so sorry to hear about losing your Dad. I feel so deeply for your loss especially since Mother's Day is right around the corner and I no longer have my Mom physically, but she is always in my heart. Your Dad must have been so proud of all your accomplishments in life and I am sure you were a great daughter to him.

Hugs,

OMG!!! ((HUG)) I am so sorry to hear about your dad!!! I know where you're coming from! Last month my dad suffered a stroke and heart attack and thank the good LORD he's recovering but that scare and seeing your parent go through this is so hard!!! I will keep your dad, you and your family in my prayers!!! Just take comfort in knowing one day you and he would be reunited and that he is now your angel!!!!

Hi Cheryl. I was going to leave a comment about your clever french fry box and then read about your father passing away. I lost both my parents in the same year and still to this day wonder why life is so short. During this sad time try to remember the sweetness of life, too. Afterall, most of the time Life is Sweet.
