Topic tags/keywords: just a thanks

Since my Daddy died last May, I pretty much quit doing things that I truly enjoy doing, such as wood working and blogging. In this time I received DM’s from quite a few of you showing me your care and concern. I just wanted to say thanks to all those that wrote. It meant a great deal to me. I just recently bought myself a new laptop as my PC was on its last legs and with that I can now come back to LJ’s and start commenting on all the beautiful wood working projects this great bunch of people make. And now I can once again join in on the threads I so enjoy doing. A very dear friend of mine just gave me a whole bunch of hardwood ends from some beautiful wood that will be perfect for intarsia. I plan now on getting back in the shop and am looking forward to it. So my healing has begun and I am ready to move forward with my own life and I cannot find a better bunch of people to start that with, than all you great folks here at Lumberjock’s. I missed you all and the whole LJ experience. It feels GREAT to be back!
Sooo again I just want to say thanks!!!

It takes time to work these loses Allison and working on some projects just might help. You know the folks here really want to help and support each other and your part of the Ljs family. Welcome back.

Nice to have you back Allison! I didn’t foresee it, but my Dad’s passing indirectly made it possible for me to get started into wwing. The small insurance policy he left allowed me to get started buying some tools that I otherwise couldn’t have justified from the family budget. I think of him often while I’m in the shop.
