Season of Change

This year has been a complete whirlwind for me. I spent the first part of this year focusing on me, trying to understand myself and what I want for me. It is a really a good thing that I took that time, because I just spent the last several months going through the worst time of my life. It seems like God was allowing a time of preparation to be strong enough emotionally to handle what was to come.

On April 20, 2010, my father was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in the bile duct that leaves the liver. From that moment on, I watched my father's health and abilities decline daily. I spent every possible moment with him and made ever accommodation possible to ensure that he could make it through this terrible situation as smoothly as possible. While there were hopes that natural medicine would heal him, that didn't pan out. Sadly, my father passed away on July 22, 2010.

I have to say, my father and I had a beautiful relationship. The time I spent with him over these last few months were a wonderful gift that I thank God for. I do miss him terribly. He was such a huge part of my life and he was my best friend. I am so greatful I was always his "Little Buddy". It was the highlight of my life.
