Keep my family in your prayers...


I hope today finds you in good health.

I just wanted to share some things with you. I've not been posting as much as before as I've been focusing more on working with my children. I intend to continue to inspire you.

However, today I want to share something that's very personal to me. My father has passed away. He was 83 years and has lived a good life. My dad was not just a dad by title, but he was very involved in our lives and lived as an exemplary father among fathers. He was a teacher and taught math, English and specialized in woodworking.

As a child, he'd take me to work with him. He had a crib for me in his woodworking classroom. Dad has been an inspiration in my life. He also had his own business as a woodworker and built furniture for many of his customers - beds, kitchen cupboards, living room sets, lamps etc. My dad furnished our home with his creativity. And in all that he still had time to plant a garden, made sure everything around the house was in order, helped clean, cook and even comb our hair. He was very active in our lives.

As a little girl I used to spend many days in our woodwork shop and he showed me how to make my own jewelry box which I covered with fabric and gave away as presents. He was a good man and very patient. I will always keep his memories vibrant in my heart.

I ask that you prayer for my family and I during this time, especially for my mom.

Thank you for your prayers and support and I prayer that my life will continue to be an inspiration to you as  my father was to me.

  2. Oh Alicia, my heart aches for your loss. Please accept my deepest condolences on your father's death.

    Even if they've lived long and good lives, we will always miss our parents.

    I like to think that even though they have gone to another realm of life before us, we will meet again one day. We will see their arms open wide to embrace us once again.

    In the meantime, your father's spirit will be with you always....in your laughter, in your tears, in the lessons you will teach your own children, in memories, and in every breath that you take.

    God bless you and all your family, including your mother, Alicia. You will all, indeed, remain in my prayers. Susan
