Moving on

It is so hard to get back to work. My artwork is supposed to be cheery and uplifting. Other than finishing a few swaps that had to go out, I haven't made anything in weeks.

In the last week of February, my father-in-law was diagnosed with cancer. It was already advanced. On March 18th he died. Everyone is crushed. Phil was such a good husband, father, and grandfather. My kids adore him.

The funeral on Friday was so tough. I think what got everyone through it was the family being together and telling stories. Laughing at happy memories. Even just being a family.

I will miss him so much. My kids need their Papa. My hubby needs his Dad.
But the world keeps turning, spring is creeping in, and we must get back to everyday life....
