I Am So Distracted

Hi everyone,

If you have been keeping up with any of my posts you may know that last Thursday I had some bad news concerning health issues with my grandmother and my dad. Well, I am very happy to report that my grandmother got to come home after spending 3 days in the hospital. So far she is doing a little better. However, the news concerning my dad was not as good.

Unfortunately, we found out Thursday that he has cancer. They found a tumor on his vocal cords and another in his neck. We are going to Winston Salem this Friday to see an oncology surgeon. I am so worried about him that I can't concentrate on anything it seems. I have never had ADD but I can imagine this is what it must feel like.

I am desperately trying to get new items made and listed in my etsy shop but I can't seem to get anything done. I also had a few more tutorials in mind but those will have to wait for a bit as well. I would like to thank all of my new followers and apologize for this slow period. I would also like to ask that you all keep my dad in your thoughts and prayers. Send as many prayers, good vibes, well wishes etc. his way that you can. We welcome them all. Please bear with me for a little while, hopefully I will be able to start posting some interesting things again soon. Thanks again and God Bless.

Oh Heather, I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad. Being mindfully present for him is most definitely a worthy distraction from work. He's lucky you'll be there with him to provide support on Friday. Please tell him Lori, a fellow survivor, sends him all the healing light I can envision. Prayer really does work! I'm 11 yrs beyond chemo & officially cured. Your family will be in mine.

Thanks so much Lori for the kind words and well wishes. I know exactly the power of prayer and I am thankful for others like you who also believe and are willing to pray for their neighbors without even knowing them. I am glad to hear about your success at beating your illness. May God Bless and Keep You.
