~ Thank you! ~

This is a belated, however, very sincere thank you for your sweet notes, kind words and prayers. I have tried to respond individually to each of you. Somewhere along the way, I discovered that many were "no reply bloggers".  I then tried to ensure I had an email address. For those that may have been missed and your response is out there in the ethernet, I apologize!  

Suzan, my sweet and funny friend, HUGE thanks to you for sharing on your blog! The support from everyone has sincerely touched my heart and I've shared with my family.

This is, at the moment, the worst experience of my life. My mind is like swiss cheese and I honestly cannot process things in a normal manner. I want to get back to blog land and visit you but it may take awhile. I hope you know how much I really care for each of you and miss the contact!

Please don't take your family or friends for granted! Spend as much time as you can with them, especially the little ones...forget the tons of projects, cleaning & decorating. Make memories and treasure the moments, perform RAOK's, take the time to call, write or email that special person. Just know that life changes in an instant and there will not be any more chances.



  1. Praying for you today. My heart breaks for you.

  2. Pat, I am so very sorry! I just read your previous post and my heart is breaking for you and your family. You are all in my prayers. Sonya

  3. Still praying for you and your loved ones, Pat. Take all of the time you need, blogland will be here whenever you are ready.

  4. Dear Pat..I am so sorry for this horrible loss, words can not express the sadness I feel for you and your family. I will keep you all in my constant prayers.

    We will be here when you feel up to blogging again. Much love and big hugs to you my dear. xxoo

  5. Pat it's so good to hear from you. It makes complete sense that you're still struggling and not ready to jump back into blogging. When you are, you can be assured that I will be here for you my friend. I still think about your family and wonder how you are all doing. I can only imagine.
    Sending you my love and prayers,

  6. Oh Pat, I am praying for you and your family! We'll be here when you feel like visiting with us! Call out if you need to talk! Hugs and prayers coming your way!

  7. Pat, I am in shock. I will hold you in my prayers...your whole family. I am so sorry. May God be with you .xoxo,Susie

  8. Pat, not a day goes by that I do not think of you and your family. I know, somewhat, your feelings, I've not lost a grand child so young, but have lost many loved ones, I hope your heart will heal somewhat, but I know it will never be the same. I'm here for you if you should ever need a ear or shoulder, love and hugs my sweet friend. :D

  9. Wise words for all to heed.

  10. Bless you, Pat, for sharing your words with us. Each and everyday I pray for you and your dear family. Love, hugs and blessings sent to you. xo

  11. We're all here Pat......all of us.
    Waiting for you -
    Life will never get back to the normal it was - but praying it goes to a new normal for all of you.
    Abby's not gone - she just resides inside you all now- tucked right in beside your hearts.....and she'll be there forever.

  12. Pat, I've been praying and thinking about you and your family.


  13. Pat, I realized I kind of lost track of you lately. I've been going backwards through your blog. So glad to find you again! I'm sorry you and your family are going through such horrible circumstances. I just can't even imagine! Something tells me that you are the positive person who tries to hold others up. Be sure you let others take care of you too.

    I'm trying to figure out if you are in Texas or Oklahoma. Maybe you are close by. :)


It makes my Heart happy to hear from you! Thank you so much for taking the time to say hello. I want to respond to each comment, however, if you are a "no reply blogger" I can't. Would love to have an email address to contact you!
