Goodbye 2018, you’ve in truth not been good to me. October 9th, 2018 changed my life once again – this is the day I lost my Mom. She suddenly passed while she was at work which has devastated me. I lost my father over a year ago and now I’ve lost my Mom my other best friend. It’s been very hard because we were close.
You think it’s the same grief since Dad died, you would expect it to be the same, and it’s not. It’s completely different. My Dad was my other best friend, my Mom and I grew closer since my Dad past. She was my rock and I hers. Through the ups and downs we made it through a lot together. Separate I don’t think we would have been successful.
My Mom and I were moving ending the September and you can image how much of a chaos it was. One I never want to repeat again. The stress and standing beside oneself was overwhelming. Again my family was there for me. (I can’t thank everyone who helped enough)
It’s been hard getting back into things. Luckily I have family who has gotten me through these tough times from Thanksgiving to Christmas. It’s been extremely hard on Christmas because it was my Mom’s favorite time of the year. Yes a Christmas tree was put up, decorating it took ages.
Where does this all stand with my website and art? Simply enough, I took some time away to regroup, letting life take over instead of just wanting to do what I only want to do. That’s basically what had happen.
I hate to be a downer at the end of 2018 but in truth it’s been hard. I never expected this to happen nor did I in my wildest dreams think I would have to write another obituary. It’s hard to understand why all of this happens. Why did I lose my Mom too? Why, why? I can’t answer that but what I can answer is this. It’s the way the universe works I’m guessing. You go through a hard patch before it gets great again. It’s going to happen, no stopping the universe. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and don’t give up!
Drawing and photography has help in the past and since the New Year is literally not that far off I’m going to offer this. I am going to do more art…. Either drawing, photography, watercolor and oil painting (and let’s throw a little quilting in the mix while we are at it). I’m going to see where 2019 is going to take me – artistically.
I will do my best to update on my website as much as I can. Follow me on instagram, I have my photography, drawing and quilting there.
I hope to come up with an updated online store where I would be selling some photography. Selling my drawings well I think we would need to have a conversation first… so please feel free to contact me.
As I draw to a close I would like to wish everyone a happy and safe new year! Hello 2019!!
