Thank you all so much for your kind words during this time. It is still hard for me to comprehend that my Dad is really gone. I was able to see him and spend time with him on the day of his death. I promised him I would try to be strong. I also promised him that I would work on a garden just for us with a few of his favorite plants and a few of my favorites. I think he would like that and it will be our special place.
At the present time, I am getting ready for surgery. I will have my gallbladder removed on August 25th and then do whatever "recoop" time the doctor feels is necessary. After all of that, I will probably be going back to my Dad's house to help my stepmother sort through his belongings.
I haven't done any cross stitch in quite awhile and haven't even felt like picking it back up yet. But I have several patterns and even some quilts in mind that I would like to work on after I cross this first bridge.
Thank you all for being there for me during this extremely difficult time. You are all wonderful and my life is so much more complete because of your friendship. Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.
