I'm Home!

I'm finally back home!

It's been a week of unpacking, laundry, cleaning, laundry, going through mail, laundry, emails, laundry, grocery shopping ................you get the idea.  But it is so good to be back! 
I so missed my friends and my blog friends!!

Where have we been?  We went to Ohio to celebrate the life of my darling father-in-law who passed away.  And what an amazing life to celebrate!  He was the kindest, most loving and gentle man I have ever met and raised an incredible son I am so lucky to be married to ;)

He left behind his bride and girlfriend of sixty-three years, two wonderful sons, four beautiful grandaughters and one very honored daughter-in-law. 

Oh yes ~

and one very exhausted gran-puppy who wanted to make sure he didn't miss his ride home ;)

The funeral; well Pastor O'Donnell was definitely blessed by the holy spirit that day as his words could not have been more perfect and brought us so much comfort.  He truly depicted Dad's life and how he was as a friend, neighbor and christian. 
It was truly a celebration of his life!!

We love you Dad and you will be dearly missed!



  1. God Bless. My parents have been married for 60 years and are so cute with each other. Thank heavens for our wonderful memories to sustain us through our temporary home on earth.

  2. Lovely tribute to your father-in-law. Adorable puppy. Glad you are back.

  3. Sharon I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.

    Take Care, ~Melissa

    PS I don't think your sweet doggie can be any cuter. Oh my goodness he is making me smile. :)

  4. I'm so sorry to hear about your father-in-law's passing. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.

    Glad to have you back, my sweet friend.

    And the puppy is just too cute :-)

  5. Sharon, I'm so sorry about the loss of your f-i-l. It sounds like you had a wonderful relationship with him, and I think that says a lot about you and about him. laurie

  6. That was really touching. Made me a bit teary eyed. In a sweet way. It's nice to know those things. You've blessed me.

  7. Hey Sharon, I am finally on and following your blog! See if you can guess who this is! When I see you next, I have a question about one of the quilts on your homepage. See you soon!
