Day 21 - Blogtoberfest - Candle

We had Mum and Dad over for lunch and a nice afternoon 
of playing Yahtzee and spending quality time together. 
Brad had a lovely selection of older songs playing because we 
know Mum and Dad enjoy listening to them.
Well actually Brad and I enjoy listening to them too.
I became quite emotional at one point and 
had to sneak off to my room to shed some tears.
It saddens me to see my Dad deteriorate as time goes on. 
He seems so fragile now and it breaks my heart.
I am grateful for these special moments we share together.

I've been feeling quite tired this week with so much going on.

So, I only had time for a quick sketch this evening.

A candle.

Pencil-free sketch in A6 pocket Moleskine sketchbook 
using ZIG Millennium and Micron pens.

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend.

~ Love, light and peace ~

It's good that your parents live so close and you can spend time with them as they get older. Here's hoping you can get some rest this week...feel better.

I can relate. I hadn't seen my dad for two years and he looked so different this summer--frail, tired, forgetful. It's hard. So glad you had time to visit--and I LOVE Yahtzee!!! Lovely candle. When it gets cold out I want candles lit once in a while. I hardly ever light them in the summer. Glad you had a nice day together!! :):)
