You may think..that I am saying..:"I'm so lucky"..
Well for many reasons maybe I am..
But that's not why I wrote that.
A friend of mine..who welcomed me to this area with open arms over 43 yrs ago..and had moved several times.. lost her beloved husband 3 months ago..she came to visit..now living in FL having lived twice in Texas..In Maine..and now Fl..
Lots of tears..but even in her sorrow she made us LOL..even J..
I'll tell you the funny little anecdotes after..
But a few things re her devastating loss have stayed with me..
A Valentine's Day...( we don't even exchange cards anymore..)
The card he gave her ..
Said something about 3 words for her on this Valentine's day..
All expecting.."I LOVE YOU"?
I'M So Lucky.
To have you.
The card read.
He really meant it..and now he's gone.
So sad to continue w/out the person who felt so lucky to have you.
Made me cry.
My immediate neighbour..a Gentle Giant of a man passed away in the last 2 weeks..
It's a tragic time for the spouses left behind.
They always say Man was Not made To Live Alone and many men remarry..
It's not as common in women yet it certainly does happen.
Watched a fantastic movie last night we had to stop midway.
Anthony Hopkins is so stellar in his role as The Father(Prime)..and so real.. it was hard to watch.
Funny the movie to us much younger would probably not have been of interest..Now myself approaching 70 in a little over two years and J already 80..this movie..is heartwrenching.
Sir Anthony Hopkins.♥
My friend made us both laugh..though on a few occasions.
She is one of the funniest people I ever met.
My daughter and her family are moving in January..they are leaving their past 17 yr old home kittie corner across the street from and moving.
I told my friend..she lived here ...she knows the area like back of her hand..she said where to..
I told her..and she said:"MOVING?" That's not MOVING ..TOKYO is MOVING..she'll be 5 minutes up the highway..
Well it's actually 14.1 minutes away.
Another chapter.So exciting for them.
Those were the days my friend...♥♥♥
We thought they'd never end..
Lucas said they have a big unfinished basement and they will build a wing for me..💕
Oh my God fall and all it's nostalgia right?
