Well hello there, bloggity friends! Do you remember me? It’s been way too long that I have been here with ya’ll! The couple months have been quite a whirlwind, to say the least. When I realized how long it has been that I haven’t been here “chatting” with you, I was sad. So, I’ve decided to kick it into gear and get back into the saddle so to speak. (Literally, so to speak – because me and horses don’t do well!)
I do want to thank all of you who sent us prayers and well wishes through April and May when my hubby’s father took a turn downward in his health and then passed away on May 15th. It was a sad time of course, but my hubby is at great peace knowing that his dad is out of pain and discomfort and resting with Jesus in Heaven. I shared all of your kind words with him and he was touched. From our family to you, thank you, thank you!
Though I have been gone from here a tad too long, as is usual for me I have been laughing myself through that absence! You that have followed along with me for a while know that I can always find something to laugh about even when it seems there is nothing to laugh at.
For instance, here’s just one example of a laughingly good time had through a most sad time. I decided to make a photo board to have at the graveside service since we did not do calling hours for my father-in-law. I told my husband that he needed to come help me. His comment was, “No, you’re the one into the scrapbook stuff, you do it.”
To which I replied, “Nope, it’s your dad and I want you to pick out the pictures.” However, what I was up to is that I knew going through the pictures would be so good for him and I wanted him to have the choice in the photos that would be on the board. Well, in no time we were sitting downstairs with photos all over the table and digging through more and more! We were laughing and remembering some really funny times with his dad. My hubby always says he doesn’t have a good memory, but those photos sure helped prove him a little wrong. Quickly, he was able to recall some pretty hilarious stories about his dad or things his dad has said. We were laughing. And laughing hard!
Are you a photo taker? Do you find that having those photos help to bring back memories for you as well? What do you do with your photos – hang them up, scrapbook them, put in boxes?
It’s good to be back here with you. In case you thought that I’ve flew the coup, I haven’t. I’ve been here, laughing my way through life and collecting some more stories to share with you to cause YOU to become “Tickled Pink” right along with me!
…and that’s all I have to say about that!
But wait…one more thing – what have all of you been up to lately, besides cooking in this heat? Please share, you know I love hearing from you!
