Today was a celebration of life ceremony for my stepmother Sharon, who recently passed away from cancer. She had been doing quite a bit better, the turn downward was pretty recent and sudden.
I am thankful my father got the time he did with her, and she will be missed, but forever Loved.
Given that we live some distance away, my wife, son, and I weren’t able to make it to the celebration of life, but my family (siblings) who were able to were gracious enough to Livestream and record it so we wouldn’t miss out.
Below is an artistic rendering I made in her memory:
What’s new friends? It’s been a great day today. I had a low carb coffee and a bunless Whopper for brunch. I feel like I’ve got more energy than I’ve had in ages.
Also, been hanging out with my wife while my son is in school. It’s about time to go get him.
In other notes: I had the shortest conversation I’ve ever had with my father earlier. It was only like 10 minutes or so. He updated me on how his wife is doing, she’s okay overall, despite still having some med issues.
As you all know if you follow my niche art blog, I continue to be on a roll there. Anyway, I don’t want to ramble too much, so I’ll go ahead and wrap this up.
It has been a very chill day. I have a few new art pieces to share to my niche art blog, which I will in a while. Earlier, I watched “Home Improvement” while I was eating a late breakfast with my family.
I’m back on low carb, and also drinking a lot more water as well.
My wife is taking my son to a picnic thing for his grandma’s work soon, so I’m sure he’ll enjoy that. I don’t know what else is going on today, guess we’ll just take it as it comes.
I had a very productive day (once my hands felt better.) I went back to trying out a new (to me) art program I’ve really been enjoying. I have fresh content to share on my niche art blog as well, so looking forward to bringing those to you all if you happen to follow me there.
Also, had a good, albeit brief conversation with a fellow artist friend of mine.
Since my son is out of school through the weekend, I’ll be getting as much time in with him as I can. Right now, he’s asleep though. My wife suggested we take him to a food truck tomorrow, I think he’ll love that.
Had a great family outing/date night with my wife yesterday.
I don’t care how long a couple has been married, it’s important to keep the fire raging, as the saying goes. Many people START with romancing their spouse, when things are brand new, and they let it wane over time.
They allow themselves to start seeing things as a chore w/their spouse rather than there being the deep and abiding connection and Love there should be.
I’m not saying marriage is all sunshine and unicorns 24/7, but there is no reason for marriage to become stale either. It’s a choice what we make a priority, and if your spouse ISN’T high priority, why be married at all? Just worth thinking about.
It’s literally 2 a.m. here and I can’t sleep. Watching Forensic Files at present. Also in quite a bit of physical pain, I don’t know if I pulled a muscle or what.
Anyway, my son has school in a few hours, I found out via a paper sent home with him that apparently he won’t be receiving homework from the district this year. I don’t know what prompted that decision on their part.
He’s been doing well as far as we know in class, getting along with his teachers and classmates and such. I’m hoping that remains the case all year.
