Pink Saturday ----- Big G

Welcome everyone to this week's edition of Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

I am scheduling this to auto post because I will be out of town this weekend. I hope that blogger does not disappoint and you will actually be reading this on time. I had a different post in mind for this week, but, decided to save it for another week. Instead, I reached back into my archives for this lovely pink rose.

I'm in a very melancholy mood just now. I am leaving in the morning to travel to the funeral of one of my cousins. The first, of those in my generation of friends and playmates to leave us as part of the natural order of aging. This death was no surprise, he had been ill for some time. But, I have to admit that I was not prepared for all the different emotions and memories that keep sweeping over me. And, I would be lying if I did not admit that mixed up in this jumble of emotional laundry tumbling in the dryer window of my head is the knowledge of the few short years that separated our age.

Big G" this rose is in memory of you.
I Love you more.

To join in the fun or just visit the pink post of others visit Beverly and her friends at Pink Saturday.


  1. Just wanted to reach out for a sec and send you a big hug.
    I can SO empathize, Rita- recalling my own emotions when a cousin passed.... feeling somewhat uneasy at the realization it's "my generation" standing center stage.
    Travel safely!

  2. What a lovely tribute to your friend. *Hugs* to you, it's always so hard to lose someone that you love. Be good to yourself this week.


  3. Aww I love the rose and it is a nice tribute of your love ones. I even love the focus of it too. Have a good weekend.

  4. I'm so sorry for the loss of Big G. It is hard when our age group starts leaving us because it brings our own mortality to the front. I wish you peace in this journey.

  5. Wishing you a Happy Pink Saturday somehow just doesn't seem like the right thing to do.
    I am very sorry that you have a broken heart and sorrow in your life. Loosing anyone is never a good thing to go thru. I hope you mend and feel better soon. My prayers to you and the family, Char


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
