My sad news and a little art

I have been missing a while again as you may or may not have noticed. Sadly we lost my Dad on March 23rd. He died while i was there caring for him and went peacefully (which we feel blessed for) The funeral was Tuesday gone and since then, because of mam being unable to live alone, we have also had the trauma of moving my Mam to a beautiful care home especially for Alzheimers victims. Its been a very sad time for my family. I just wanted to give you that final update and while i am here i will share my one piece of art with you too. This is a brand new Journal I am working on. So far, only the cover is finished. I would like to enter this for the challenge over at Visible Image where I purchased the gorgeous face stamp

I'm so very sorry to hear your sad news June and hope your Dad is resting in peace now.
Thinking of you and your family at a very difficult time as I know just what it's like having gone through the same thing here.
A stunningly beautiful piece of artwork too.
Sending big hugs your way.

Oh dear June, how very sad, I wish I could give you a great big comforting hug. Your dad's suffering is over, and your mam will be well cared for, that is something of a blessing, even though you must be missing them terribly, having spent so much of your life with them and caring for them.
I am glad to see your artwork though, it is beautiful, and I hope creating will help you heal.

Dear June, thank you for the update. My deepest sympathy concerning the loss of your father. Such a gift that you could be with him when he passed. I am glad you could find a good place for your mother, too. Your journal cover is beautiful and I hope journaling will provide some level of comfort. May fond memories of your father heal your heart in time. You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Yvonne

Dear June-
I`m happy for you, that you found a nice place for your mother to live, now. It was the only right thing to do, when she can`t look after herself! But ofcourse it is a very sad time for you all, and you know ,you have been in my thoughts all this hard time,dear,
Your new started book, has a stunning cover, how wonderful a blue colour, and I love what you did to all the flowers- the image so beautiful,too, and love the pen strokes.
Warm hugs,Dorthe

Dear June
I am so glad you are back amongst your supplies and maybe you are finding some solace and healing as you create art.
I do so hope that is the case as you have been through far too much for one person. As heartbreaking as it has been for you, your Mum is in a safe environment where she will be cared around the clock and hopefully through time that will give you peace of mind.
Take good care of yourself June, remember, that is so important.
The cover is so gorgeous - there is a sense of serenity to it.
Sending love and a bundle of Wishes

Liebe Juni, es tut mir so leid mit deinem Vater, und ich fühle mit dir.
Und es ist nicht einfach, eine Mutter ins Altersheim zu bringen. Aber manchmal geht es einfach nicht anders.
Ich habe dasselbe tun müssen, und es war sehr schwer für mich.
Ich wünsche dir alles Gute und ganz viel Kraft.

Umarmung und liebe Grüße von Sophie xx

I can't begin to tell you how awfully sorry I am for you dear June and how my heart aches for you... You must miss your dad sorely... Of course it's nice to know that your mom will be taken care off, but that in itself is another goodbye, too... Sending you lots of love and virtual hugs, Ira xox
it's good to see you creating something though, will take your mind off things for a bit...

I am so sorry to hear you've lost your dad June. He had a long struggle. And your Mum will be well cared for now. My mum was in a similar home and loved it in her own little world.
Take care,
