Welcome to 2010!
I have been visibly absent for two months, and although many of my readers know why, not all. So today I wanted to share with you that my sweet father passed away on December 9th after a long illness. This is a picture of the two of us: I was eight years old and we were working for the forest service in a lookout tower fighting fires in the Coconino National Forest in Arizona.
He was a wonderful man, and though we all miss him dearly, we are also glad that he is no longer fighting all of the ills that diabetes brings on.
Thank you to all who have sent me beautiful cards, notes, hugs and prayers. I appreciate you so much!
And now it's time to stamp again and get back into the groove! I will have some exciting news to share tomorrow, so stay tuned!
