Remembering You

Sharon 1976

Where does time go anymore..... A year ago today, my Aunt Sheri crossed over. She struggled the last few months of her life with cancer that had spread through her whole body. My Aunt wasn't a victim of cancer...she chose this don't email me about that comment. She was told 5 years prior to her death that she had cancer and decided not to fight, not to tell anyone, and in my opinion death. While we may not understand other's thinking and when someone makes a decision like this there are often a lot of questions unanswered. We believe we ultimately know why her decision was such, but we are so saddened that she didn't think enough of her value as a person to want to share that struggle with anyone else. She wasn't an easy person to love...she had a lot of problems, but she was my blood and she loved me and I loved her. I am saddened today by this void in my life, but I know the soul never dies. She was ready to leave this physical world and we have accepted that...she has changed many lives by the decisions she made...maybe that was her divine purpose. I am having so many thoughts today and those closest to me know the me this post would be a mile long if I went into it....but ultimately, the most powerful one of all is love. She gave me the gift of forgiveness before she passed and for that I am truly thankful. So I am thinking of my Aunt today with love in my heart and I will honor her in little ways for I know she is with me in spirit and I our souls will meet again someday.

Bent Creek Halloween Snapper

Happy Fall! The weather has turned cold here in North Idaho. We had a major windstorm this weekend that knocked down trees and I was without power most of Sunday.

Here is my latest finish. It's Bent Creek's Halloween Snapper. I am missing the little black spiders around the edges because the buttons I was told work work for it were way too big. So now I'm going to see if I can find something that will work. I was hoping I could get this made into a cube and out on disply before Halloween. I hope my quest for buttons is fruitful =) I just love all of the little costumes. Thank you Emily for the wonderful gift!
