 It's long sleeve weather in Texas....
I had a visitation to go to last night...
it was nice to catch up with a family I haven't seen in too many years...the funeral was today...
it was a beautiful military ceremony...
he had been in the Air Force....
Rest in Peace JJJ...
you were a Great Man....
 I always have a hard time getting back to my normal day...
after I've had to go do something in the morning...
I just can't seem to step back in...
like after a Dr. appointment...or meeting...
the rest of the day just seems out of sorts...
 I know some people can just get right back in step...
like they were never gone...
I try....but it just doesn't seem to work for me...
 isn't it funny how you can be away from some people...
for years and years...and just melt right back together...
like you've never been apart...
then others...you can just never seem to get back in step with....
I guess some people just keep a piece of your heart...
even if you don't see them for ever...
the moment you reconnect...it's like no time has passed...
I'm fortunate to have had that happen...
 
I was talking about that with my Mom today...
as we waited for the funeral to start...
some folks just stay in your heart....they never leave it...
she has reconnected with people from her past too...
So many blogger friends have a piece of my heart too...
I may never meet any of you...or even speak with you...
but you hold a special spot in my heart....

Oh Deb... I know exactly what you mean...if I don't start my mornings right... I can never get into the day!!!....And I also know what you mean about friends...and blogger friends...in your heart!!

I'm the same way. I can only get back in my groove if I come in and change into 'housework' clothes and then look at my planner....My kitchen planner is the key. If I write it down for that day I seem to just get on to the next thing to check off!

These are all great shots! Love them. Good to have times when you can reconnect, even when it is at a funeral

I have a few friends that I don't see often due to distance, but when we do get together or talk on the phone, it's like we just talked the day before!

I have a hard time stepping back after any kind of distraction!!

Funny how funerals can be really sad and good at the same time. I'm like you, I can't step back into a day very well if I'm gone in the morning.

I'm just like you in that, Deb; if my day starts with some kind of appointment, I cannot get back in the routine. Your photos are just stunning!! I am not surprised a bit that you are being requested for photo shoots! blessings ~ tanna
