2008 started out fine. I had a great January! Then in February everything went south. My Dad took ill. At first it did not seem as if it was life threatening, but by early March he had to go to his doctor in the US to find out what was wrong with him… Five weeks later he passed!
My Dad was one of the kind of dads that other people want to adopt as their dad. He was a truly remarkable man. His unexpected death really shook me up. I drive around my minute island and everything reminds me of him. He was so much a part of his environment… and It is emotionally, still difficult. Grief is definitely not for sissies! In one fell swoop it destroyed my creative ability which has only just started to return.
Even though I have been posting to this blog it has not been regular but I hope that my barren streak is almost over. With God’s help I am coming to terms with the loss of someone who was a driving force in my life. If you are looking for ways to overcome grief or difficulty in your life do not forget prayer – It really helps.
So, now you know why my posts and article writing this year are below par. However, I’m back! I feel as if I am now ready to get the creative juices flowing again and begin concentrating on my home business once more.
