Bittersweet {Kendall}

Hello all my colorful friends!  I think I have a good match this week, with color and meaning!

This weekend I took my two boys, my dad, and my grandpa to the Tulsa Air and Space Museum.  It's not my favorite place, probably since I'm a girl, but the boys love it.

The next picture didn't have the color but it is the feeling that is bittersweet for me.  My dad was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in January.  He is in remission from that, but we found out last week that a spot he had removed from his thyroid a few weeks ago is malignant. This has been a rough year emotionally for my family.  My grandpa currently has cancer all over his body and is suffering from "I only believe what I want to" syndrome.  I guess the denial helps him deal with things, but it sure makes it hard on everyone else.

While we were at the museum, they had some veterans there talking about a trip that is available for veterans to fly to Washington DC.  My grandpa was so excited, which doesn't happen real often, but when the lady said they would take a trip next year, I had to walk away, crying, because chances are, he won't make it until next year.  He, with his positive outlook, wants me to fill out the application so he can go on the trip!  So, I love this picture, because these two men mean more to me than almost anything.  And this trip to the museum was very bittersweet.

I love your sepia finds!  Keep them coming.  And good luck on the Bittersweet search.
