~A Long Week~

It's been a long week.....Lots of cold blowing snow, a few no school snow days, Valentine's Day in the middle of it all, some migraines and 7 months ago today my Dad passed away......It's been a long week, I haven't blogged for so long it seems like an eternity. I even shut my computer down for 26 hours because I just couldn't look at it anymore.
I'm not sure what it is but I am happy this week is over and it's the weekend. I miss my Dad most of all....and wish I could have just one more day with him. I can't believe it's been 7 months ago today that I sat and watched him die. I find peace in my heart knowing that those last few months are not the way he wanted to live, he was not the person he was, just sitting there, not able to do anything, not even able to eat. And I have to thank God for not letting him live like that for years....Time to COWBOY UP and get back into the swing of things. Get back to the countdown of it's my favorite time of year. As the old saying goes....

Jack of all trades, Master of None

I just finished looking at Niki's, from Nostalgia at the Stone House, blog. She INSPIRES ME!!! Yet, I look at all the eye candy that she treats us to everyday and I feel a bit inadequate. I feel like I don't have that talent like Mary Bella from Isabellascloset or Niki. I look at these pictures of what I have done in the past and wonder, Do others look at my creativity as inspiring as I do at others. Most days, I feel like a Jack of All Trades and A Master Of None.
And so.....the story goes, I will continue to try to find my talent. Try to find that "thing" that insprires me and others around me, that "thing" that makes me feel like I have some talent. Until then, I will keep trying, and looking at these pictures and say..."Did I really do that?"
