Distraction...


A little bit of "fiddling" with these fabrics...I am thinking some new cushions for the family room...might look good on my dark blue lounge. Just distracting myself from the difficulties of life....my dad remains very ill & seems to have lost his light...it is hard to see him move away as he feels that his time has come...when he speaks he tells us to go away...this is a tough time & we feel so redundant. Many times in life we face difficulties...this is one of those times...it will pass & we will gain strength from this journey.

Thinking of you guys and praying for you all as you go through this time with your Dad not being well. I hope that you can distract yourself a little from what's going on and that he'll get his spark back... and want to see you guys too. :)

I am so sad for you at this time ....your Dad appears to be coming to terms with this time in his life in his own way; I know how hard it is to watch from a distance; but just being nearby is a blessing for him. Crafting is a joyful peace to us all when times are troubled; so keep stitching in your hands.
Hugs from Judith

Well it is a beautiful distraction - I hope it is bringing you some comfort and rest. Best wishes for your Dad.

So sorry to hear your Dad is so down. Hopefully he may rally. His body needs all his strength to fight so maybe you can look at his pushing you away in this light. It is not because he doesn't love you, he just needs all his energy for himself at the moment. He will know that you are there and love him. All the best
