Hi everyone! In case you’re wondering where I’ve gone to… Well, life has been changing a lot for me lately. I am still crafting madly everyday, but my personal life kinda takes over. I have been putting off blogging for a while, I just don’t know how to start. So after what seems to be my seventieth time opening my blog software, I finally decided to post again.
About two weeks ago, my Father In-Law died after nearly 7 years of stroke and a year of not being able to get out of bed. It was definitely a sad time for me and my husband. A couple of weeks before that my uncle also passed. There has been a lot of deaths in the family and it kinda takes away my mood to go on. I often think about my father, whom I dedicate my weekends for, and how precious family times are. When we grew up, we never allocated any special family day. My parents never endorsed the custom of kissing their hand or even kissing their cheeks when we’re about to go out like most Indonesians do. We rarely ever have dinner together. We’re all very individualistic. My parents are hardworking people who went to work early and came home almost night-time, and by then we’d (kids) be exhausted by all the extracurricular activities we had earlier and didn’t get to spend much time with them. As we grew older, somehow we got closer. My father who never wants to go out to the mall or restaurants with us, now initiated it. Because he saw the point in us begging him to go out when we were little. It bonds us. So now we go out regularly, we have dinner at home together and just sitting there with them. I am not taking them for granted anymore.
Ah, sorry for rambling on… Especially since it wasn’t written in a witty way. Hehe. I am also here to start showcasing my cards again (oh yes, I have more than a dozen projects I tell you!). Starting with this one which I gave to my sister in law. She is expecting a girl :)
