It was a week ago today that my dad died. It is impossible to explain just how much that sucks. I know some of you already know, and for those who don't, I hope you don't have to find out for a long time.
My dad's death was sudden and unexpected. However, having also witnessed the slow, lingering, die-by-inches type of death, I can honestly say that for the person who must leave us, the quick death is better. I am thankful he did not suffer long. The sense of disbelief and surreality that the unexpected death leaves in its wake takes some time to fade, but after a week's time it is mostly gone.
My dad would want my mother and me to get back on life's horse and ride, so that is what we will try to do. I will return to blogging on my topic theme--quilting--as soon as I can, and I'm already finding times I can concentrate enough to comment on my fellow bloggers blogs. If I fail to comment on someone's blog, it's not because I'm not interested; I just don't always have my act together. Please bear with me.
