Im not really sure why I feel I need to say this, but I do!

I think because I was getting into Redbubble so much lately, great people and so much wonderful talent I sometimes think about closing my site and just coming on to look! That would be one way for me to not get so far behind.

My father in law was diagnosed with ALS early last year. I spent most of my summer months helping him and my mother in law get settled in to their new apartment at Pathstone Nursing Home. And cleaning and sorting thru 65 yrs of memories in the house they were living in. I was very honored to have been trusted with that task. Even though at times it seemed like the saddest honor too! Shortly after finishing it was put on the market to sell and did sell two weeks ago!

In the time it took to do the house my father in law little by little was eaten by ALS a nasty disease for sure and today he is a shell on a man that can no longer breath, speak or swallow. He is for sure dying! And even though all of that is new for me in a horrifying way he still can smile when I enter his room and he can still find enough air to call me sweety as he smiles. It breaks my heart to see such a hulk of a man be reduced to skin and bones.

I spend a lot time at the nursing home either with him or my mother in law. I think I feel the need to say this because every time I think Im back to Redbubble to stay something always gets in the way! I don’t want anyone to think I don’t care any more or not interested, I so love what you do and look forward to every log in that I do! None of you will never know just how much your wonderful works and talents have lifted the dark cloud hanging over life right now and I will always and always be grateful to each and every one of you. Thank you for that, for everything!
