Carefree ***My Little Sketch Blook***

I was GD at My Little Sketch Blook, I love Liz's sketches, this one was totally out of my comfort zone but I really enjoyed working with it, and I am very pleased with the end result.

Here is her sketch


Love Without End ...... Amen ***Challenge Masters**

Today's Journaling challenge is up at Challenge Masters stop by if you can. The challenge is: In honor of Father's Day, we are going to do a Journal about a Special Man in your life. It can be your Father, DH, Uncle, Grandfather, Son (who is a father) well you get the picture. But we are adding a little twist. Pick a Song that when you hear it reminds you of that person. If you don't have a song a Poem will be good you don't have to use the entire song/poem as long as you use some part of it. Hope you can play along.

Journaling Reads:
My father always told us how much he loved us and that no matter what we did the love would always be there. Even if he did not agree with what we did.
I tell my kids the same thing. I tell them that I will always love them, even if I may not like them at that moment. The first time I heard this song, it reminded me so much of my father.
"He was not the greatest father but he was my father."

My Idol AAM Challenge

Today is Reveal day at AAM ALL About Me. It was "My Idol", well I don't really believe in Idol's but I do have a few woman who inspire me and have made me what I am today. My Maternal Grandmother is my first choice. I lived with her most of my life and she influence who I am today tremendously.

The journaling reads: My Maternal Grandmother, Abuela Rosa.

I don’t remember my Abuela ever talking bad about anyone; she always looked at the glass ½ full and taught me to do the same. I think of all of her grandkid here and I had the most special bond, but not because she loved me more because I know she loved each and every one of her 15 grandchildren the same. There definitely was no favoritism in our home. But I was the only one who would sit with her for hours learning about our family history, about her, her siblings and her mother and her siblings.

One story she told me was. Was on a very personal level she told no other grandchild not even her own kids, they knew but not with all the details I knew. My Abuela was pregnant when she was 15 years old, with a wealthy boy from her town of about 200 people, she would have been the embarrassment of her family were not to a wonderful aunt and her amazing mother. When she told the boy she was pregnant he told her it can’t be mine, she said ok it’s not yours and walked away. She carried her baby girl a long her mother and aunt hiding her pregnancy. When the baby was born the boy came to marry my Abuela, he looked at him and said “I don’t need you any longer”, “ I will never marry you”, He did give his daughter his name but my Abuela walked with her head up and proud of her and her daughter. A few years later she met a man who loved her dearly and accepted her daughter. They married and had 2 more kids, my mother and my uncle. Her happiness was going to shattered again, when my grandfather died suddenly of complications from an appendicitis. Once again she was left alone to raise 3 kids. But she said “Never once did I question God and never once did I let anything bring me down”. A few years later she will meet the man that she spend the rest of her life with, he was 18 she was 27 and he fell madly in love with her. She told him “Please go away, I have 3 kids I’m almost 10 years older than you, why do you want me I come with a lot of baggage”. He said “Because I love you, and since I love you I will be responsible for raising your baggage”. Well they got married just a few years later and had 5 more kids all girls. Grandpa, adopted my mom and uncle and they lived happily ever after. My grandmother always saw the best in the worse situations.
