Dearest sweet Jan, this is such a beautiful post and i could so relate to it as i wish the same for my papa. It made me teary reading this because deep inside i so wish i could take my papa back in years when he is younger and stronger.
I love that painting you created. It's so beautiful and meaningful. I feel so inspired that i do wanna create something similar too. :) Thanks so much lovely friend. Sending lots of love to you and your family! Happy sunday sweet friend and love to you and yours.


Your story stirred up many emotions in me...beautiful, sad, and hopeful all at the same time. I was talking to my daughter last night of how we sometimes want to stop the train and slow things down so we don't have to say good bye to what is and has been. The inevitable coming changes both take a beautiful life away and give us the gift of a beautiful life to be. It is a juxtaposition that at times is hard to embrace but the sands of time give us few options.

I appreciate your beautiful way of sharing life with us! <3


So very beautifully said. We were not ultimately made for this world. My heart aches with you.

Brought tears to my eyes. Sometimes I forget I am not alone. We all live with the same human condition, its happiness and sadness. Thank you for sharing.

What a beautiful post. Your jewelry is beautiful AND you are a talented writer. While reading, I felt as if I were sitting right next to you during your visit with your dad. I've been through similar issues with my parents and can tell you that your relationship with God, and having those wonderful boys of yours will get you through this.
