Unplanned Break...

My friends, I am just not up to finishing the post I had in progress for Wednesday morning...
my Dad is in the hospital, fighting cancer,
with developments today that have overwhelmed our family.

My mind is just not on decorating or the holidays right now.
Hopefully I will get back to blogging for a post on Saturday, 
but depending on how things progress over the next few days,
that may or may not happen.
My family is my first priority, and I know you understand that.
I'll be back when I can.

In the meantime,
I am offering this 'commercial break':
You'll find loads of holiday cheer, inspiration, tutorials, and projects
on my December: Everything Holiday! Pinterest board.

And if you are so inclined, 
your healing thoughts and prayers would be very much appreciated
by this girl who just wants her Daddy around for a long time to come...


  1. Deb,sorry to hear that your Dad is not well. Thinking of you at this very difficult time! Sheila

  2. Deb, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I've been in your shoes and it's a terrifying place to be. Rely on your friends, your family, and our God for comfort. Be strong, or don't. Be what you need to be. I was a daddy's girl and I miss him so much. I lost him almost 12 years ago when I was 42, just days before his 75th birthday. I hope your dad comes through this and all our prayers are answered with "YES!" Blessings, Patty

  3. You are making the right decision. This is the season for family and with your father is where you need to be.
    Saying my prayers for your family tonight

  4. Best wishes to you and your family that all goes well with your dad. Many prayers are coming your way. Milena
