How can I tell you how blessed...happy...surprised and even a little sad all of your amazing comments on my last post about my dads pancakes have made me. When I wrote about my dads pancakes...it was all because a beautiful picture of a plate with delicious and beautiful..yes beautiful looking pancakes bought such a loved memory of my dad from my heart to my head.
When I wrote about my memory it hurt a bit, especially when I told about his last days... remembering that is still so hard...but it also made me soo happy to remember him, his pancakes and his smile and even the grumpy comments he made when we asked for his recipe...I just never thought how many of you could identify with this memory and feeling too.
I feel so blessed to have soo many beautiful, wonderful memories of my dad, I am even thankful for the not so happy memories...because, you know my dad was after all only human...like the rest of us...but none the less, they are memories that bring him back to me if only for a few precious moments...but I am so thankful for them. Now for why everyones comments made me a little sad too...I think the realization that so many of us have lost loved ones recently, or are going thru something painful with a loved ones illness is heartbreaking...Also the fact that cancer is so often a part of this factor with so many of us makes it even harder to deal with sometimes...But I wanted to Thank All Of You, that took the time to read my LONG post and left me such amazing heart felt comments....Thru my tears from reading them...I thank you from my heart and hope that you all have some amazing memories of your own loved ones in your heart that bring you happiness when you most need it. Again, Thank You!!!
Now for my little update, I also want to thank you all that have been so sweet to email and ask how I am, it is a wonderful feeling when friends realize they haven't seen you around their blogs and wonder why (makes you feel special..right :) What wonderful "friends" I have made here in Blogland...Dawn...I forever thank you for that :) I dislocated my shoulder...thinking that I just pinched a nerve and that is why it was hurting so bad, I proceeded to try doing windmills (slowly)with my arm, thinking this would help losin up my arm and make it not so sore...SMART...yeah I get that now lol. After Tylennol and Advil did nothing and the pain was to the point it was making me ill, I finally went in to get my arm checked and found out I had actually dislocated my shoulder...yup and let me tell you not fun getting it put back either lol Guess those windmills were a really bad idea :) So I have been trying to visit your blogs still, because I miss seeing what everyone is doing but I haven't left comments...(typin with 1 hand is sooo slow lol ) and it was my right arm I hurt..., I am right handed, I know....only I could do that much damage...so well lol Hopefully in a few more days I will be back to commenting as well as visiting :) Hope everyone has a wonderful week....And if you are in So California....yay do you not just love this new cooler Autumn weather...just lovely, we are getting the sweaters and lap blankets out :) Tine for lovely delicious soups and oven dishes like meatloaf and pot roast with mashed taters....loves it!
Well until next time dear friends....
