More Vintage Brannock & Patek
More fabrics from my online friend, love them, I especially love the big angel panel.
I meant to add this quotation, but the phone keeps ringing, so much how I feel now with Jim's passing, so many people continue to call, send notes and drop by, glad I got out of my pj's today. Reading more, always looking for answers, I do know this now, watching Jim face his suffering and death has humbled me, I finally figured out what I had been feeling, such a sadness yet admiration of what he endured. I will admire his spirit forever.
Anyway, from Melody Beattie, part of one of her quotations;
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude
makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. So with that said, I am grateful for having had a life with my Jim, grateful for family and friends who have made this latest path bareable.
