My Dear P/S Family

Several weeks ago my dad went into the hospital for various health issues.  We  had
expected him to be home before Christmas.   Due to complications and age on Friday
December 11th the Lord called him home.  We were with him until the end and he peacefully
Even though we had a troubled past my dad was a good father in so many ways and he was
always there for me.  I loved him very much and as the days pass I miss him in ways, big
and small.
A couple of weeks before my dad went into the hospital my computer broke and it has been
difficult to come on the site.  I wanted to let you all know that I miss sharing our words
and all of your amazing talents and the warmth and beauty that you bring into my life
through all that you share especially now when my heart needs it the most.
I want to wish you all a safe and happy holiday season.  May it be filled with peace and
all the love and joy it can hold.  You are in my thoughts and prayers and I wish only the
best for you always, dear friends.  I am making arrangements to use a friends computer and
hoping to be able to come on the site when I can.  Blessings to you all.

Love, Robin

    You are among my favorite writers, I was wondering if you were interested in the challenge of my new contest? To try to write in a FORM you don’t normally use and to see if you can TRICK me ;) [most of your writing I can tell it’s YOU straight off! ;)] I would like to run a contest where the BEST and Brightest are highlighted, but it’s only fair if you challenge yourselves. Please do let us see a new write from YOU in a new form! Light & Love Always Debbie
