Fisher Forced Family fun.
i thought it was only appropriate to start my new blog with a photo of our family. my happy place. my most prized possession.
you see, i had a blog for YEARS. i paid every few months when they reminded me. that’s how i roll. yes, i am unorganized. but i figure i have a lot of other great qualities about me, so this one tiny thing is not a big deal. at least to me. anyway, a few month go my father got sick. long story. i will introduce you to his memory later. i sat with him. i listened to hours upon hours of great stories. i learned the importance of “time”. he passed. i grieved. i am still sad. but my website did not know. and they canceled my blog. the one that had years of photos and memories and stories. i cried for that too.
then i realized… the memories are in my head. i have photos on my phone and in my computer. i can tell the stories to my kids as i remember them. and i kind of like that!
we traveled to CA this past thanksgiving. the 4 of us. and celebrated my dad’s life with some of his family. oh boy, do i have some great stories now. and funny how their dad had different scenarios than his brother, my dad. we laughed. we celebrated. we shed a tear. then we gave thanks for family.
my husband and kids know i’ll never force them. i don’t have to. FFFF is just part of us now.
can’t wait for our next FFFF adventure.
