Greetings! It’s March 21st. My least favorite day of the year. Today, 12 years ago, my Dad passed away. Gods how I hate this day. But, I tried to do something positive. I made an art journal page. Actually, I made 2. I signed up for the 30 Days of lists, and then got the damn flu, and i haven’t been able to catch up. So, I sat my butt down the other night and wrote up all the lists I was shy. Now I just need to make the pages. So. I bring you……the page about my Dad.
It’s got a watercolor background, and I wrote my list on a piece of vellum. It’s my “What I Miss About Daddy” list. I could have written for hours. But I kept the list short and sweet. Lest I start bawling.
1. Going to car and motorcycle shows
2. Watching NHRA
3. Everything that never got to happen
4. The look in your eyes when you joke.
5. The pretend ignoring
6. The shots of Goldschlager
7. Shopping with you
8. Your suits
This was tough to write…and I am sure a lot of it may not make sense to you…..but this is my heart on the page.
And this is Day 6 (yeah…I have a lot of pages to make!)…My Talents; According to Gene. The page (again) doesn’t look complete to me. But I made this before the one about my Dad…and I couldn’t get my Dad’s list out of my head….so I needed to just get this one done. But, it’s a start.
Gene thinks my talents are:
2. Good Teacher
3. Good Decorator
4. Good Cook
Awwwww! So sweet! Thanks for visiting me today. Have an inspiring day!

I think your lists look great! I just wanted to let you know that you've been in my thoughts a lot yesterday and today. Big hugs to you!
Wow – brought tears to my eyes. It will be 15 years since I lost my Father in a few days so this totally hit home with me. I would even write a few of the same things you wrote on my own list if I had one. Thanks for sharing this very personal post,
