Happy New Year

Just wanted to drop by and thank everyone for the prayers, You have all been so kind. I hope that everyone has a Blessed, Healthy, and Happy New Year. I look forward to visiting more often, but I think I am going to pursue my dream of re-opening my little craft shop and see if I can get people interested in vintage here. It may take over a year to get it done, but it's something to look forward to.

Our celebration was remembering all the funny stories and some of the trouble we got into when we were young. My dad was the most gentle man, but very stern when he had to be. He was the one we always went to when we had problems and I can still hear him say "Sha (cajun slang) I don't know what to tell you".

Love, Live, and Laugh today, for we know not what tomorrow brings. Hugs, Pat

Pat, good luck with your new venture of re-opening your craft shop. Life is short so follow your dream.

Pat, I keep thinking about you, hope you are doing OK... I wish all the luck in the world with your shop. In the late 80s I had a craft shop and loved it!
Hugs & love ~Mary~

I just read about your Father and I am so sorry. Take it one day at a time. Sometimes you have to make yourself move and if you do that - you will come out of the sadness faster. Do not give up anything you love as I almost did when I stopped riding after my Mother passed away. (((hugs)))

I believe in tomorrow and I plan to be part of it.

Thanks everyone. I'm taking one day at a time. Last night was not a good night and I didn't get much sleep. It is comforting to know so many people in blogland care for each other as though we have known each other for years. Hugs, Pat
