Gig wanted me to put up a more upbeat post so that we can begin the process of healing. So, I thought I would oblige. I've got the grill all fired up and I'm ready for a good old fashion BBQ. So what do you say Wild Onion Crew? You all want to contribute your favorite dishes, beverages, and desserts? Let the Party begin!!!!
Gig's mother passed away today. I spoke with Gig on the phone this evening and she is dealing with things as best as she can. I told her I would post and let all of you know. So in honor of Gig's mom and for all of the loved ones that each of us are missing in our lives, I wrote these words....
Even though they are gone,they live on inside our hearts.
The memories will never fade as long as our memories remain.
We miss them when they are gone,but we hope deep down in the depth of our souls
that they are indeed in a better place. A place without pain, without flaws, and filled with beauty.
A place where tears of pain never flow, but tears of joy are bountiful.
A place where they can look down upon those of us struggling to cope in this stone cold world with out them. And where they can smile rays of sunshine upon us in order to light our paths to brighter days. I want to believe these things, I need to believe these things, and it is the Remembrance that sees me through. The remembrance that they would want me to continue life as though they had never left. And because I love them, this I must do.
OK since you all are just a group of party animals, I thought you might enjoy this cute one.
I've had it up on my blog for most of this week, but none of you have gone there to comment about it, so I thought I would bring it here. Oh and don't forget to click on the link so that the puppy can get fed. It's free, so JUST DO IT! I'm the Boss!!!! Hope everyone has a great weekend.
Just a friendly reminder from a Random Chick...while you're out there enjoying the summer, don't forget your sunscreen or you'll end up looking like this guy and spending your evening frying eggs on your skin!
