“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you...I could walk through my garden forever.”  ― Alfred Tennyson

Summer is in full swing here in Texas.  Hubby rearranged and rebuilt my area in the studio. He is working on building better ventilation next and painting is happening. 

I am currently in the midst of a commission of three panels on birch.  Hubby aka Terry, is helping with the sanding today of the clear gesso on the panels. I am preparing to clean out the room of anything unneeded or not used.  There is a lot here!   My next dream is to hang Christmas lights. I LOVE them year round in my studio... always makes me smile.

Who do you think of all the time?  I think of my Dad, who died in 2012. If I had a flower for every time I thought of him... it would be...  OH wait... I surround myself with things he loved. The Crape Myrtle Trees, of which we have four, all for for my dad. He loved his Crape Myrtles and the colors.  (Mom did not).  Other things about Dad...
  • He loved God
  • Loved Crape Myrtle Trees
  • The Color RED  (My car is red and we named it Gerald after my Dad.
  •  Books - as I rarely remember him just 'watching' TV, he usually had a book in his hand... and so do I all the time.
  • Coffee brewing in the mornings and a small cup before bed for him.
  • Making a list to help make a rational decision
  • Always thinking of others and helping them
  • Do no Harm  
  • Strong work ethic
  • Always took care of his family
My Dad left a strong legacy. As well you can tell.  So in tribute of Alfred Tennyson, I wanted to share who I think of the most that has left this world for his heavenly home.  I even thought of my Dad when I chose this Bible verse for today.

"Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:2
