Too much…

Has been going on around here lately. Last I posted, grandpa passed away. We went to a-town (Amarillo) for his funeral and it REALLY put peace in my heart. We grandkids wrote his eulogy and my cousin Craig’s best friend who know grandpa for at least 20 years read it. He nailed grandpa’s little sayings that made him grandpa to us. And the service really put me at peace with everything. I miss him a ton and always will, but he is in a wonderful place and will always be watching out for us.

Now on to the now…there are many things I have always wanted to do but put off for dumb reasons. And after talking to Eric A LOT on the way home – 8 hours worth of talking - about what we want our obituaries to say (morbid, I know but it needs to be talked about) I realized I need to do what I want to in order to really be the person I want to be. I have always to learn paint and well, I decided to take a stab at it. I have been “taking” an on-line class which entails me watching different techniques. I know I have a long way to go but something wonderful happened while I was painting – I STOPPED THINKING about what needed to be, what could be, what would be – everything. I found myself in the moment and loved it.
