Tanya had picked me to play in a photo game a while back.
I didn't do it because personal photos
are kind of not going to happen around here for the time being.
But it got me looking at my photos again
and remembering the good times at the beginning of my digital camera days.
---------------------------------------------------
I'm off to visit my mom this week.
I'm feeling quite sad about it.
For a bunch of reasons, really...
but I think mainly it's because we're going to visit my mom.
just my mom.
--no dad.
This is not new.
We've visited a couple of times since his passing
but it's hard this time.
So I leave you with this old photo of pumpkin and my dad.
Her Papa.

From a time when he was still warm and his hugs were sure.
He took in the cool air with pleasure and basked in his family.
Mainly,
he was here.
Now he's not.
It seems simple but death can be so complicated.

I am so sorry for the loss of your father. We will keep you in our prayers this weekend.
On a side note how do you make the button on your sidebar that says email me click here and then have it link up to an email account?
I have a spot on my blog for email but I have to send it to a post that then shows my email address.
