Life...Death...Birthdays and a quick hello

Hi everyone, sorry I haven't been posting, life as usual has a way of getting in the way when your busy making plans :) I haven't really gotten a chance to post, been running around doing errands, spending time with my girls who are on vacation and are always "bored" :) Visiting my mom and just trying to get her thru some hard days. She hurt her back yesterday, just doing something so simple as streching to reach something but it was bad enough that she was barely moving and having a hard time just catching her breath, so as soon as I saw her, I rushed her to get adjusted and although sore, she is at least able to move a bit better. Hopefully in a few days she will be good as new!

We got sad news yesterday of a loved ones passing, so the next few days will be busy with the arrangements and everything that goes with it. The dear lady we just lost, was a lovely woman with a huge heart, she could be tough and said what she felt, she was, I liked to say the female version of my dad :) She could make you smile or laugh or cut you to the quick with her wit just like my dad lol (Hey they earnd that right to say what they felt no matter what anyone thought :) But she was truly a dear heart, always with a ready smile and she will be greatly missed by all those that were lucky enough to have known her. As soon as I get permission from my aunt, I will post a picture and a lil tribute to her :)

Today is my Abuelitas birthday, she would have been 95 years young, goodness I can't believe how it hurts to breath just writing that :) She is missed everyday but I can now smile when I think of her, because she was such an amazing woman and led such a full life filled with the love, respect and the admiration of sooo many family and friends. I will have to do a post soon about her amazing life. To say she was loved sometimes feels like an understatement. My abuelita was my mamas mama, my "Ita" and our large familys matriarch and heart. "Happy Birthday Ita!" we miss you and your precious always smiling baby blues!!

So for now that is all dear friends and Dawn, I haven't had a chance to speak to you, but it goes without saying, I send you and your family everything good that is in me and my heart that your dad is well, because he will be, with an amazing, loving daughter like you, he has to be around for years and years to spend time with you, all his beautiful grandchildren and loved ones and most importantly to teach baby Clara all the wonderful things he taught you :)

Now off to eat some pink cotton candy, cause Mr Wonderful doesn't know how to appreciate a sticky keyboard lol till the next post dear friends......

What a wonderful post, in remembrance of loved ones. You're very thoughtful.

I wanted to come by and thank you for checking out my studio and giving me a pep talk! :) After seeing so many beautiful studios at the Blog Party, the comparisons were quite stark, but I really am grateful that I have a space to create in. Thanks!

Hi Rose,
I came by to thank you for your very kind comments on my blog about my petite studio.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one, she sounds like a character and so sweet for speaking her mind, always a good thing in my opinion... why waste time, let's get it off our chest and then get along ;)

Sending good thoughts your way... one day at a time!

I too love The Enchanted Cottage, they don't make them like that anymore.

Rose, you & I are so living the SAME LIFE!!!! Except I am the one with the blown out back (L5 Disc). Hope your Mom is doing better. I have been to the chiropractor twice Monday, and then every other day this week. Along with the regular doctor for pain meds & muscle relaxers. And, Friday I found out my favorite Uncle died in Denver so I will be off on a jet plane for the services. I guess we both need to take a deep breath & smile for all the blessings we do have. Take care.

Hi Rose,
I am sorry to hear of your loss.
Your energy and sweetness abound even in your times of grief.
Hopefully one day soon, you will be able to settle into your special place and create some amazing things, out of your stash.
But for now, enjoy the wonderful activities that come with having your young ladies home!
Soon these days will fly away. . .
