Quilt With Us

the first day of this month and I haven't been around here much.
A universal happening that takes enormous emotional proportions and energy out of me yet everyone experiences first-hand at one point or another.
There's days where I feel like I'm sleepwalking through life.
I find comfort in needle, thread, and pulling stitches through cotton.
I think going to Houston next week will be more helpful for me than any
other year I've attended Festival.
So much to think of and remember and hold close in my heart.

I'm sorry. It's so difficult getting through the first holiday season; your inner strength and the friends you have might help you. Thinking of you.

Sorry for your loss- my father passed away the end of July so i know what you're going through.

I lost my Dad 7 years ago and still think I should call him and talk.... I have many good memories that I remember now. I also go to my photo album and look at the good memories. It is hard but we do move on and live life again. The good memories stay with you and make it bearable . Take good care of you. Enjoy the quilt festival, that is good medicine.

The others have given you very good advice. Cherish the wonderful memories; in time they will overshadow the grief. Prayers and sympathy go out to you.

So very sorry for your loss. Fathers are really special people.

This may not be you but I don't think we ever fully realize the answer to the question, especially when we are much younger - what are Dads good for - until they are not with us any longer. Then, for some reason a nagging question of doubt comes and goes - did my Dad really know I loved him, because I think I missed too many opportunitys to show it or say it. That is the time to go through the photos of all the smiles and fun from days gone by. Then some peace - yes, my Dad knew.
