I want to thank those of you who wrote and made such sweet and kind comments about my post on Patrick's birthday.
I would like to add that though I speak of Pat, remember him from time to time on my blog, that blogging, to me at least, is what I love best in life. It includes my past, what made me who I am today, my children and my home and of course my beloved pets.
When I write of Patrick, it does not take away anything from my precious husband that makes my life today so wonderful. We talk of the spouses we have lost. We remember them and neither of us would ever take any offense at all when our loved ones that shared so much of our lives, who were the ones who gave us our precious children, are mentioned.
We know that each of us has a great capacity to love.
My husband and his children and grands go each year on the anniversay of his wife's death, to the cemetary and then to lunch together. No, I don't go. That is their time together to remember.
My family does not do that..but our arrangements were different.
The reason I am writing this is just to make certain no one would ever think I was disrespecting my wonderful marriage to my husband.
We know we have loved before and we are very complete and secure in our love and life with one another now.
So..thank you. Thank you for understanding.
Blogs are such personal things and all are different.
Mine pretty much keeps time with my heart.
Love and hugs,
