Forget-Me-Nots

This flower was one of several I chose to plant at my daughter’s

gravesite 25 years ago.

To me it symbolized a connection that lasts thru time, true and

undying love for a daughter whose life was taken way too soon.

Time passed; however, the ache of losing her still remains.

A parent’s nightmare!!

Germans coined the name of this flower and there’s a few myths

floating the hemisphere addressing its floral beauty.

One lovers’ myth, although quite sad, warmed my heart.

It read of two lovers walking the Danube River, spotting the bright

blue blossoms, the man’s desire to fetch some of these delicate

petite blue flowers with petals resembling the shape of a mouse’s ear

(cute tidbit of info) for the lady when suddenly swept up by the river.

As he was floating away at a distance he spoke the words to her

to ‘not forget him’.

Romantic!!

If someone asked me why I was writing this post the honest answer

would be, “I have no idea“.

Today isn’t one of those special days, the more painful ones

experienced by a Mother who has lost a child.

Thinking to myself perhaps the answer lies in an event that transpired

earlier today.

This morn’s social media journey was different as I chose to bypass

articles on my homepage’s slideshow.

Rather I headed over here to WordPress and read some truly

inspirational posts – a great start to a sunny, blustery day.

Before I shut down I accessed Facebook to tend to the garden I created

11 years and 5 months ago in memory of my daughter known to some

as TuffiMcGuffi.

In recent weeks the Fairyland app had been under maintenance.

Today it wasn’t listed on the sidebar and I couldn’t find a way to

access it.

Wonderful!!

Another creation taken from me without warning.

Needless to say although I shut the computer off and figured I’d wait

awhile to check back, my mood changed dramatically.






Share Your World – Feb. 8th 2021

Prompt: Questions and Answer

  1. In your opinion do May/December romances ever work?
    Ans: Age isn’t always a determining factor of forever after. If the younger
    person in the relationship is mature enough and both individuals share
    lots of common interests then my opinion is ‘yes’.

2. What physical action or gesture do you find romantic?
Ans: Those impromptu moments shared alone together – a stolen kiss
shared laughter.

3. What is your idea of a romantic dinner?
Ans: Sitting across the table from the partner I love (restaurant or
at home) under dimmed light with candles glowing, fresh florals on
the table, a tasty meal plus shared dessert and intelligent conversation


4. Is ‘love’ a real ‘thing’ or merely a physical chemical response and
brain activity pulling our emotional strings?

Ans: Love is real when you both finish each other’s sentences.
The chemical response happens when the heart finds the right one.

Gratitude section:

Question: How do you show your loved ones that you love them?
Ans: Daily ‘I Love You’, unexpected surprises, enjoying the good
times and being supportive during the bad ones.

Three Things Challenge – No: 159

Todays’ words: ear – peg – trophy

Thought to self e’er bit late 
Divorce for’er seal own fate

Secrets wish ear ne’er hear
Nor family members’ advice adhere

Trophy for long-term faithful wife
Last chapter life alone amid stress ‘n strife

Today without further adieu
Topic no longer wish write ’bout nor read ‘n review

Forgiveness not always ’bout reconcilation
Colorful peg placed quote on visionary board – sense elation.

Three Things Challenge – No: 159

The Monday Peeve No: 21

Today I was going to peeve about myself and how disorganization has played a part

in how I feel at times.

Ah, then I read a fellow blogger’s post about monogamy and dating.

The older you become (if alone) the more vulnerable or perhaps men think you’re 

plain dumb.

Senior men search for Barbie doll types, women financially set or plain hookups.

Few on dating sites look for exclusivity. 

I don’t know what goes through another’s mind only this gal once married long 

term isn’t about to share any man in the intimacy department.

At one time I blogged a bit about different types of men – charmers – players etc. 

I have more self-respect for myself, able to resist temptation early-on and sad

but true lost a few men along the way due to my personal beliefs.

The Monday Peeve No: 21

 

Song Lyric Sunday: Lost

Today’s theme:  lost/found/hide/seek

Details can be found:  https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/64726988/posts/2463146335

I chose Blake Shelton’s hit “Came Here to Forget” – 2016

Song Lyric Sunday: Lost

At a later date I shall type out the lyrics since dealing with YouTube has been trial and error on a dismal rainy Sunday.

I love my country music and originally chose a Canadian country western artist’s tune. Unfortunate for me ‘little’ wanted to work to allow the song to be played on this site. 

The ocean for me was a very comforting place following a major breakup – period I found myself lost at times. 

Today in the aftermath of the pain (who can forget history) I’m quite a bit wiser having learned some harsh lessons. 

It appears ‘seenagers’ of today’s dating world enjoy the game of hide ‘n seek. Topic for another post. Chuckle! Chuckle! – The ghost and the haunted (actual TV series in US).

Continuance:

Since not a gal who gives up w/o a battle I decided one last try at my original choice of the
Canadian country western artist’s lyric site of tune “Lost”.

Amorous Communication

Heart red
Key pastel pink
Press immediate skunk stink

Quick hello
Message give receive
Intention be deceive

Weekend locale
Across bridge precedent
Check 'n found non-resident

Mis-match information 
Polite insinuation amuck
Male decision argue wish him best of luck

Time wasters
Profile liars from start
No way captivate woman's heart.
