Sometimes thing just don’t work out the way you have planned


Inhale, exhale, inhale and exhale…last week was a very difficult week. When we received the sad news that my father-in-law unexpectedly passed away. We booked our plane tickets and made the trip to Dallas to lend support and attend the service.

My head was in a bit of a haze and everything I had planned to do just didn’t seem to matter or be all that important. Our time here on earth is short. Too short to be doing things that don’t add value or bring you closer to reaching your dreams. 

 Even though we were visiting for a solemn occasion we still found a way to bring some happiness and joy into our trip, especially since we don’t get a chance to visit very often. My daughter got in some amazing QT with her Aunt Christine (they got matching Hello Kitty Chococat watches). We visited Santa and did some ice skating in the Galleria, and Ava Blu and I were lucky enough to fit in a visit with Brooke and her boys.

So, needless to say with all that was going on, this week’s Sketchbook Story did not get coded and posted. However, we shall pick up again next Tuesday :-)
