And so it goes.

Dear Friends

I’ve just finished packing. Not for a holiday – our October week in Fremington has been cancelled to give us time to recover. A loved one is having major surgery on Thursday DV, and I am going too. Do you remember a couple of weeks ago I asked for your good vibes, wishes, prayers – whatever is relevant to you - and then I put them on hold. Now is the time to gather them round us.

As they used to say in business letters:

Thank you in anticipation.

Pat

P.S. Enjoy Dinah and the lovely song - an old favourite. Keep the faith.

A loved one, not the loved one; if you are going too it must be a very much loved one: all my good wishes, vibes and thoughts are yours to add to your comfort blanket. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Pat said...

Eryl: yes and thank you:)

Good luck, my dearest Pat. All my positive thoughts and vibes are coming your way. I am sure the surgery will be a success and you will share the good news with us soon. Take care.
Much love XOXO...

Loved the Dinah Washington song. Have you been messing about in my record collection again?

Good energy of all sorts is winging its way to your loved one, and to you. Such times are hard for everyone concerned, so make sure that you take care of yourself, too, please.

My apologies for being so slow to acknowledge your lovely comments over at my place. It has been a fraught few weeks since my last blog post and energy for "talking" has been in short supply. I do appreciate your visit, though, and look forward to engaging in some regular back and forth commenting upon your return.

debra said...

I am also sending love, light and good thoughts across the Pond. May you have peaceful, healing days, dear Pat.

Pat said...

Thank you Warden - I am grateful.

Milady: thank you for popping in, your wishes and I'll see you later:)

Pat said...

Debra: thank you. We are leaving tomorrow with our kitbags full of loving wishes.
