While we are all getting things ready to welcome the year
I am remembering my Dad that passed away 2 years ago today
after losing his battle with cancer.
In August I did this layout for challenge #2 at The Story Matters.
It asked what you would do if you had 30 days, and I wrote
I would take 1 picture a day of my dad with you 2 girls from December 1st 2006 until December 31st 2006 when he lost his battle with cancer.
I would record his voice from December 1st 2006 until December 31st 2006 telling you where he was from, his favorite song and his advise on life.
I would THANK him for 30 days for loving us so much and NOT have waited until December 31st 2006.
This is something that hunted me every day until I finally put it on paper that day, it still eats at me that I never told my Dad how grateful I was that he LOVED my mom the way he did, especially since he married her knowing she had 3 kids and 2 of us (one of them being me) were bad @$$ kids for the first few years.
I am thankful for this wonderful hobby and for the challenge blogs that have taught me how to express myself better and how to journal it all, this has been a therapeutic experience like no other.
On a lighter note, I want to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR and may 2009 bring you all HAPPINESS, HEALTH, UNITY, CREATIVITY and nothing but the best.
See you in 2009, hugs.... Maryangella
