My father's only sibling, my Aunt Pat went before the pearly gates today. I am sure that she got in right away knowing the person that she was. I'm sure that she was pushed to the head of the line. She was one of the most unselfish, non-complaining, sweetest person I have ever yet to meet in my life. She never thought of herself ever. Her only worry was for other's constantly. Her death was very unexpected... no one knew she was ill. It is a great tragedy not to have her with us anymore.
This wonderful woman took care of my father (helping his wife) until the end of his life last year. He battled many cruel years with Lukemia. I don't think that Aunt Pat had much to live for after he left her. She didn't want to be a burden on her children... thinking she would inflict damage upon their marriages. She stayed on with my father's wife, and helped in anyway that she could. I really think that the stress did her in.
To My Dearest Aunt Patty:
I spoke with you a little over a week ago Aunt Pat... but I wish that I could speak to you now. My heart is breaking for the things that I should have said, but didn't. I know that you are in a better place, and that is what is comforting me right now. I will always love you! Thank you for everything that you brought into my life. Thank you for all of the advice that was given. I will think of all of the things you tried to teach me about forgiveness. I can't say that I can do it, but I will try to remember the reasons. Being Irish is sometimes a curse that cannot be broken in terms of stubborness. I know you understand this about me, better than anyone.
Please say hello to Dad for me.

I was tagged by Juli... thanks... lol
The question was what is on your desktop? I wasn't sure what the question meant at first. I thought you meant my actual desk...duh..That is pretty messy, and would be hard to describe. If I had to take a picture I would be horrified!
I looked at Juli's taggers site, since I couldn't get on her site. So I guess you want to see my background picture. I'm not sure if it will show since I am into green everywhere including my blog. Here it is though... it's called "Fall Leaves". Pretty boring huh? At least it fits the season around here. I think I've had it up since last year... maybe it's time for a re-decorating on the desktop.
If they read this I tag: Lynlee, Karen, & Ken!
