Been away for a few days....

  1. I'm back for just a moment. My father passed away on Monday night. I am very much at peace with it because I know he is with the Lord and back with my mom who he missed so very much since she went home 3 years ago. So as you can figure, I have been very busy this week planning his memorial and gathering photos for a couple of collages I am doing.
    In doing so, I came across an old photo of me on my 5th birthday and I had the biggest laugh (which I really needed!) It is me opening a present which was to be my very first handbag! I remember it so well, it was a black patent leather bag with a gold clasp on top. It was a handheld. Now I know how it all started!:roflmfao:

    Anyway, I'll be away for a few more days but just had to post this.
    Talk to you soon fellow PFers!

    Sorry to hear of your father's passing, but I understand your being at peace w/it. My dad passed away 8 years ago, and my mom misses him so much. I know when she goes to meet him, she will be happy, too.

    Hope you are finding all sorts of fun memories in his stuff. Love the pic of you and your new bag! (I got a green patent leather one for my 4th b-day. I adored it!)

    much love!
