Father's Day

What a blessing my father was in my life. I miss him terribly today, as always. He left us at much too young of an age, due to cancer. I think of him today especially and wish I could wrap my arms around him and thank him for being such a terrific influence in my life. I love you, Dad!!

Happy Father's Day to all of you fathers...may you enjoy the day with your loved ones!


Patricia found this old portrait, badly damaged, when she was packing to move. Her husband, Jack, loves the portrait of her and said that he would love to have it repaired, framed, and hanging in his office. (that is where I came into the picture...)

So, I repaired it for her and she had it framed as a Father's Day gift for Jack. Happy Father's Day, Jack!

Taking a little break here...I have not picked up a camera or thought about blogging since May 17. That evening, a medical emergency nearly took the life of my precious hubby, Al. He is well on his road to recovery at this writing; so I expect I will be getting back to work in the near future.

Interesting how a situation like this affects one's perspective. Granted, I am exhausted from the ordeal, the constant awareness that life for us (at least for this moment) has totally changed. However, appreciation for things and people previously taken for granted has taken on a totally new focus. What a gracious gift is LIFE!! We, indeed, will never be the same. Appreciate it to the fullest...consider all that you wish to accomplish while on this earth and don't waste a single day...indeed, a single minute.

We are most thankful to the Lord for not only preserving Al's life, but making him stronger than he has been in years.
