Happy Weekend

Remembering

Dear Lucky,

You became an integral part of my life when I needed you the most.

I became a widow. Grief followed me. Constant shadow .

….and then you arrived. Lucky Buster. My canine grandson. You gave love and kisses from day one.

A few more weeks and you would have lived to be 14. A warrior fighter cancer twice.

You died when I was at the beach in North Carolina with 15 Virginia family and friends. You were in the hospital with Mommy and Danielle . They saw you lift your head up, as if to say goodbye as you left for The Rainbow Bridge🌈. They kissed you.

You gave unconditional love. Unlimited kisses whenever I asked .

It was my good fortune to take care of you whenever your family went away.I loved our times together. Walking in Central Park and chatting on a bench. Always time for kissing and snuggling.

The last time I stayed with you was our last time together. 10 wonderful days, even though you were on 9 medications. You weren’t in pain. Just fighting, and you were frisky too.

But, you knew it was our last time.

There was never a time you didn’t kiss me. I held you and said to kiss me if you would be there in August.

You wouldn’t kiss me.

Lucky forever missed , forever loved. Gama

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened .” Anatole French

Forever loved. When I’m able to think of him with love, not pain and tears, I will write him a goodbye letter. His loving energy will be with me forever . Have fun Lucky playing Over The 🌈Bridge

Gloria Vanderbilt

I just watched the beautiful tribute Nothing Left Unsaid: Gloria Vanderbilt and Anderson Cooper.

Poignant Moving Sad

I would like to share a story

about the lovely and elegant Gloria Vanderbilt.

I’m a perfume lover. Always seeking the perfect scent.

Over 50 years ago I  was at the theater with my husband. A beautiful woman swept by, and she left a trail of a delicious scent. Her back was to me and I walked up and touched her on her shoulder.

”May I ask your scent”, I said.

“Oh of course she said sweetly. It’s Tuberose by Mary Chess. And you get a huge bottle for $7.50” as she held her hands  facing each other wide apart, showing the size of the bottle. “So inexpensive”, she smiled.

…….and that was my 25 second meeting with beautiful Gloria Vanderbilt who died recently.

Mary Chess Tuberose, I wore for many years until it was discontinued.

Gloria Vanderbilt will live on forever in Anderson Coopers heart and soul💐✨

Always important to have someone you can relate with✨

The tress are welcoming me to Virginia. A little sunset, the bonus. As seen from the train. Two months of fun family love. No drama🥰

I need to practice “less is more.” Otherwise, I will  get all emotional and end up embarrassing those I love the most. So keeping it simple. My youngest grandchild , my only granddaughter, will be finished with college  tomorrow . Leaving Thursday to experience her achievements. Well deserved honors, three graduations. My two grandsons graduated college last year.  Spent their college years in a very positive way. Always thinking of those less fortunate.

What I know…..My three grandchildren, in their own way, I have no doubts, will make this world a better place, a kinder place, and a place that deserves them.

Proud??? Is there a stronger word? Above and beyond proud and forever grateful they are in my life.

Thinking about going to the gym, but it’s raining out. Oh wait, the gym is in my building. I’ll have to find another excuse. I will🤗
