Joy !!! **2 Sketches 4 You Laura #36**

Joy is what I'm feeling in my heart this morning! I had the BEST weekend ever! I was able to spend my dad's 90th birthday with him. No that isn't a typo...90th birthday! My daddy is my hero and to be able to have that tender mercy from the Lord to enjoy these 90 years with him is an indescribable blessing. He is so fun and loving. Everyone just loves to be around him. He was so touched by the number of people that came to celebrate with him...flying from all over the country. None of us would have missed it for anything. What a joy that we had this wonderful reunion to celebrate his birthday and not wait for his funeral. That is too often the case. So I ask a favor of you all today. Celebrate the joy of your loved ones. Call a parent or someone special in your life and tell them you love them. Life is too short not to. Thank them for all they have done for you. I want to thank you all so much for celebrating WCMD with all of us at 2S4Y! Wasn't it fun!! Thank you all so much for your oh so kind comments. I'm still smiling from reading them all. Congratulations to all the winners and to Diana (dj-enns) for winning the Creative Cuts and More prize package from this blog. Remember you can win another prize from our challenge this week from our wonderful sponsor Sakura of America. They are so generous to us at 2 Sketches 4 You.
