Thank you and I am back again. More to come as well

I know I have not posted for quite some time. I have also seen that some of you have checked back now and then and I thank you. Thank you for your patients and not giving up on this blog. I've had some things to take care of at home that took my time for awhile. We have been caring for my dear sweet Step-Father whom I love. He has dementia. He is a good man who made my mother smile again after we lost my Father, which is reason enough alone to love him. I have a strong caring Mother who I watch care for him and I try to help the best I can. I know that what I can do is not always enough, but I try to do what I can do. I see my brothers and sister in our combined family doing what each one can do. Some are able to spend more time helping while others live far away or have things that make it not possible for them to be here helping, but they call and/or come when they can, and do whatever they can as well. I've seen how much that means to both my parents.

Dementia is a hard thing to watch happen, to see a person you love slowly change as it affects their brain. But, it has also given us an opportunity as a family to show our love and support to our parents in our own ways and as we are able. I've felt that I have been able to show them how I care for them in the little ways I have been able to help. To be there for them as they have been there for me. I know I'm not perfect. They have and are still doing a lot for me and I really wish I could do more for my parents. Life is a funny thing. We can't control what might be thrown our way all we can do is do the best we know how with what does come our way, even if it's treading water for a little bit before we can see where to swim to.

Anyway, thank you and I have updated the class pages and will post the cakes that haven't been posted over the past months as well.
