This is the prim gift Patrick brought home. I've been using the same tree topper Angel for over 20 years and have been wanting a prim star for a while now. Patrick was visiting one of our merchants, Oh My Stars, the prim shop so I said, "bring me back a star topper." hehe And he did. It's perfect. I love it. I was like a little kid jumping up and down with excitement.
I was planning to take pictures and show you yesterday but I received a message yesterday that my dad died the day before. While we had no relationship and I knew he had been sick, it still came as a bit of a shock. I wasn't sure how to feel about it all. As I told my mom, I don't really grieve the loss of him but I grieve what never was and I'm sad that he never had a revelation that made him want to have a relationship with his family before he died. I am more sad for my brother who has tried to be good to Dad all these years. I quit trying 20 years ago and washed my hands of him.
I do feel sad but it's very hard to explain or even understand why.
So anyway, that's why I didn't post yesterday. I didn't get much done and have a ton of work to catch up on today. I'm almost there. Just thought I'd take a little break to chat with you for a minute and show you the awesome star.
