Happy Birthday, Patty!

Patty at her Uncle David's home

Good Morning, God!

Today is Patty’s Birthday! Let’s see, she would be 48 today. Only, up there with You, she might still be 18? Or do we somehow become our True Self — outside of Time? Now THAT’s a lovely thought.

Acceptance is a slow slow process. As The Mother, I shall always “feel” as if — as the Builder or Compiler — I was missing nutrients or failed in some way to do an adequate job — thus the cancer. Is that Excessive Personal Responsibility, God. Or just a fact to absorb and process and deal with? Or, both?

This morning I am willing to accept my part in all of this — peacefully — although, perhaps my cold and coughing represent a residual residue, wanting to be removed. Still, I am forgiven. And, I have, mostly, forgiven myself.

And now I look at this photo of Patty — enjoying frozen yogurt — and smile. I am THANKFUL!

How fortunate we were to have had Patty for 18 years. To have been given the GIFT and RESPONSIBILITY of CHILDREN! Three extraordinary daughters. Your Children, as am I. As we ALL are.

Recently, God, I have become much more aware of Your Desire to NOURISH us. We do so need Your Spirit to care for us — helping us to forgive — to remove toxins. Helping us to OPEN to Your LOVE and then helping us to let Your Love flow through us to others. We err in just calling You Father. YOU WHO ARE THE COMPLETE PARENT and MORE — FAR MORE.

But, back to the point I wanted to make! IT IS NEVER TOO LATE. YOU are always DESIRING to FORGIVE us, to REDEEM us and to LOVE us! Thank YOU!

    Hugs and blessings to you and Kit, dear Margie!
    I know you both have dealt with losing Patty as well as anyone could have; she is and always will be part of you both. I know you also have thought of the good things that you have managed to provide; the fun run in Patty’s honor and the amazing book you and Kit wrote are the two things that come to mind. You are such very special people and I know you are an example to us all as how to live. Hugs, Adriana
