{something family} my father-in-law

My true love's father has been part of my family since Jv and I have been together. That's 11 years this month. Back in August, we found out he was sick. Really sick. It seemed such tough circumstances--all our joy for the baby, but all of our sadness for Jv's dad.

Sometimes I wonder if I should add it to the blog. But for the past two weeks I've felt the inkling to add it. And though I see this space as a place to share ideas and art with the world, it's also a capsule of my life. And my life wouldn't be complete if I didn't mention this part of it.

My father-in-law's name is John. He's a very honorable, thoughtful, and generous man. Whenever Jv and I need anything, he is there to help us. I think his smile was the brightest when we showed him the first snapshots of Baby Jupiter. The doctor's say we don't have much time left. And so I dedicate this post to him now. I love him very much.



  1. I know all too well what it is to lose someone close to you... if you ever want to share your thoughts, I'm a more than willing listener (and reader).

  2. So sweet of you to add this post. You are such a wonderful person, always have been :) The night Morgan was born my Grandmother passed away and I did not get to see her, it was comforting to know that she got to see Morgan's picture before she passed. I am sorry to hear that John is sick, I know the photos mean a lot.

  3. good morning...i stumbled upon your little space here via google searching for a quote...another who seems to share a passion for the written words!!! i just
    "pinned it" one of your quotes below...so what out you may have more visitors coming your way!!!

    a few years back i start my own blog...we were going through a similar situation...very abruptly our lives changed when my husbands father was diagnosed with cancer...we were told just a few months...unexpected and life changing...it was after he left this place...the world in which we all know...that i felt drawn to writing more and seeking an outlet to keep my thoughts at bay...by writing about your father in law...you are honoring him now...and that is a beautiful gift...i will keep your family in my thought and prayers...strength and peace be with you all...much love light and blessings shining brightly upon you and yours~
