Here is my sweet sweet dad. For Father's Day I gave him some wood items that he can paint (and play with). He use to build things, gadgets, thingamabops, doohickies, creating them from his head. He can no longer get into the sawdust, but thought maybe he could keep busy painting some small things just for fun. He is so limited activity-wise and his days get long and boring. It does not take much to cause him difficulty breathing. It also does not take much to please him and amuse him. He has such a big heart. I love him so much and treasure every minute I am with him. This girl loves her dad!

I am so excited I can't hardly stand it. I am so proud of Emily. She is singing with Aaron Ivey on his new CD that is coming out June 23. It won't be long now and I will have one in my hot little hands. When we were at his place in Austin, we went back into his studio and he let us hear a couple songs and they were awesome!!! This is big, folks! REALLY BIG! I can't say enough about it. So I'll just stop for now. You gotta get a copy. It's really good stuff. Go to Emily's blog now and link over to "Aaron" under her "Austin Friends" list and you can hear something really really superb! I just can't say enough, can I?!

Bushes between the driveway and house. They're crazy this year.

Our hostas are going nuts, too!

I don't even have words to go with this picture. I don't. So that's it.

I miss him!

I miss him.

I wish I could say it doesn't hurt anymore, because I want to be able to say that to my sister in law Kathy. I want to reassure her that it goes away, but I'd be lying. " grieving" is suppose to "be over" and I have moved on. Instead it became a part of who I am wherever I go and whatever Ido.

I am homesick.

12 years. . . unreal.

I yearn for heaven.

I can feel Jesus holding me up.

I can feel the love of my family.

but. . . I miss him.

I can't believe I haven't posted since around mothers day. What a slacker! Austin was awesome, we had so much fun with Emily and her friends. This is really bad since I haven't been blogging, I thought I would write today and say that I feel like crap. Don was sick over the weekend and maybe I now have what he had, I don't know, but I was sick all night and today. Feverish, achy, want to puke. Right now I feel like I could pass out. I'm getting a cold rag and lay down. Don suspected food poisoning was his problem, but I'm not so sure. How does one know, anyway?????? whatever. I got something and I don't like it! Just wanted you all to know! ha!
