Pfatt marketplace

I know you all are probably thinking WHAT? she updated this month with her dad just passing?

Yes I did. My dad was the type of man that said; Life must go on. He wouldn't want me to wallow in self pity or be depressed for long. I forced myself to pick up what little of me there was left and get to work. My Dad was one of the hardest working people I ever met and I always wanted to be just like him.

Oh trust me, I am not over this, through this or okay with this pain in anyway shape or form. I am just dealing with it. If that makes any sense at all.

I so appreciate everyones thoughts, prayers, cards, flowers, letters and emails of support. We knew this was coming but it still doesn't make it any less painful when it does. I still cry everyday and probably will for the rest of my life. He was simply put my Hero and that doesn't ever die. He saved me from myself most days but saved me just the same.

So go hug the ones you love, chat about the weather for tomorrow it may all change.

remember pfatt marketplace updates tonight at midnight or a wee bit sooner.:)

Thank you very much Gina,
I do appreciate your kind words and gentle advice. I am doing better then expected. Moments come over me and overwhelm me and others fly right by. The closer to flannel and Christmas we get the harder it will be. Daddy wore flannel every year for Christmas as I got him a new fishing shirt. So I think we all will be wearing flannel this year in honor of that.
I threw myself in my room last night and finished up a santa shelfer. I had it started. I do want to make a Pea Picker's dolly and may have to throw myself into that.

Oh how nice of you to go to the show and shop from me. The turkeys were a hit and there were more in back stock that had been forgotten. I took them out and they went right out the door. Folks came back for more. I will have to have a few more of them next year but they are so much work for my friend that made them for me this year.
The show was okay not like last year which was super wonderful for me, but okay considering all the dollar crunching folks are doing.
Thanks again Gina! and Kimmy

How sad for you to lose your Dad, my deepest condolences to you and your family.

Gentle hugs to you, and you just get out there and create, cause I am pretty sure that your Dad is standing right behind you helping you to stay upright and to move on as best you can. When you don't need him to hold you up any longer, he will move inside and keep a little part of your heart warm.

Wooly hugs,

I can not tell you how soft and gentle those words were to me. Just lovely and brought a smile to the corner of my mouth as a full smile isn't possible yet.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
God bless you!!!

Oh my dearest friend...I had no idea you had such a loss in your life. Reading what you said about the work ethic you have and how your father inspired that just proves how powerful of a legacy he has left behind. May his next journey be a journey of wonder and peace. Think of him often and treasure it! We keep our loved ones alive with our memories and as we grow we see more of them emerge through us in our daily lives. May you have peace soon Pea and only smile with fondness in your heart when you think of him....Pam

Pea said...

Your words were truly sweetness to my heart. I am continuing to try and work through this loss and we have had one more. a dear uncle but we shall get through this too.
My heart is trying to concentrate on the upcoming homecoming of my son Jacob who will be Thanksgiving. we will be celebrating. Trust me! Thank you again pam.
