Easter Weekend

We spent Easter weekend visiting my grandfather’s ranch.  Honestly, it wasn’t in my budget.  However, I can’t imagine how he feels losing his youngest child and I’m trying to spend as much time with him as I can (even though we are several states apart).  It’s good for him, it’s good for me, and it has helped my daughters with their loss as well.  Sometimes….you just have to forget the budget and do what’s right in your heart.

We all know I’m a DIYer. It’s just how I am and what I do.  So I did some DIYing for my sweet grandfather.  It’s amazing what a little paint can do.

The deck was worn down by weather and three different colors of paint.  Plus, random natural boards that had been replaced….something had to be done. lol

It’s not a lot, but I figure if I can fix one thing up every time I’m visiting it will make a difference.  I’ll never replace my father, however, the least I can do to honor him is make his father as comfortable as possible.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday and were able to spend the time with family! Remember, family is not an important thing…it’s everything! Enjoy every moment.
