My beautiful Mom

Hi everyone! I have been M.I.A. from this blog practically all summer and I wanted to let you know why. On September 21st my dear Mom passed away after a long battle with lung cancer. I have been spending the summer weekends with her at her beach house getting much needed quality time in, and sitting with her at her house during the week days helping out and keeping her company. The last two months, I was one of her primary care givers and at her house practically every day and occasionally nights. During this time, she was my whole world and everything else had to be put on the back burner. Now, I am trying to pick up the pieces and get back to my old routine. My heart is so broken, and I haven't felt inspired much at all. But I do miss all of the blog prompts, creating new art, and all my visitors with their wonderful comments. Give me a little time, I'll be back soon.

Awe, Cin....seeing her brings back such memories.
I know 1st hand how caring for a dying parent :( can be so draining to your heart, and so rewarding as well.
Its so hard......i hate that you have to go through this too.
Im so glad that you got in all of that quality time, therefore have no regrets!
It does make things easier, and gives you peace in your heart.
The grieving process is a long one, sometimes you'll take giant steps forward, only to find yourself falling back, so remember to be kind to yourself!
I love you...
