My father's illness is taking a toll on our entire family, and I know that we are just at the beginning of this journey. Our lives have been put on hold and all of our energy is focused on his health and well being, which is the least I can do for the greatest man in my life. Each day we have left with him is a blessing that I will cherish.
But, it does tend to diminish my creativity and consume my thoughts. I would like to keep Retro Gran as a happy place, a refuge from every day life, if you will. Lately, my posts have become sporadic in their scheduling because I am trying to maintain the atmosphere I hope to portray here, but my heart is far from being in a happy place. When the mood and time allows, I try to seize the opportunity and create several posts at once before the moment is lost again. I hope that you, my dear readers, will be understanding of this and stick around.
With that, I would like to leave you with lots of love and happy thoughts. Here is a photograph of one of my grandsons enjoying his time on the beach.
