Glad to be back...

Hey, I am back!!!....
We arrived last night just on time to go to the stores and are very pleased because while we were out things were running pretty good and had very very good sales!!!...
Our trip was great, it was tough because the show was big and we had just 2 and a half days to see everything, that meant looots of walking everyday but we enjoyed it. We placed some orders for new items that hopefully will be here for Christmas season... We didn't have that much free time for ourselves but hey, breathing new air and just being out of our everyday routine is a vacation itself!!!
On a different matter, my guardian angel is still working like crazy!!!.... We got back T's results for the second SA and I was sooo happy that they look muuuuuuch better than the previous one. ....Actually this time they seem to be normal. We are still waiting for the results on the culture and I really don't want to get my hopes up, but at least up to this point, it's a better picture to start with!
Last Saturday, 26 years ago, my father went to heaven. That day was a marker in my life, a lot of things have happened, and it will be a lie to say that since I was very little and a lot of time has passed, I don't miss him.....
It surely has been a tough life, and sometimes I think how my life would be if he hadn't left.... A while ago, somebody asked me that if I had the chance to change something about my life what would that be?....
I thought about it for a while, of course what came to my mind right away was my father's death. Having the opportunity to grow up with him at my side would have been great, but then I knew that all that I am today was indeed "forged" ahead by all that I have been through. It certainly hasn't been easy but what really matters and have real value in life NEVER come easy.
Dad - You are still my pillar, I love you!

How exciting that the SA results are looking better!

Your dad sounds like he really touched your life even though he wasn't around for very much of it. I'm sorry you lost him so early.

Welcome back and congrats on the SA results!

I think it's wonderful that you have such good memories of your dad; he is probably reading your blog smiling away!
