I had planned a fun week of Celebration, but sorrow and heartbreak crashed in on my parade. Friday mid-morning, I received a very disturbing call from my sister: My younger cousin had passed away in his sleep of a heart attack. The fun week of walking down memory lane, rejoicing over the laps of time and loss of poundage was replaced by a memory walk of a different kind. Remembering and celebrating the live of one you love.
Chris was a big guy with a heart as big as he was, with a ready smile and a fun laugh. I will miss him. All of my childhood playmates (my cuzins) gathered to support the family and cherish each other. I will try to keep a post or two coming while I visit with family. But again, I find myself WITHOUT much access to internet around here, and it is hard to pass the opportunity to be with those you Love While it is Today!
I am sharing with you a picture of some Louisiana style food. The iPhone pic doesn’t do it justice. You can’t tell that this table is Bar (like where ya got to grab a drink) height, the metal flashing is the hole you throw your scraps into as you chow away at the “trough.” I loved that! What a Perfect way to eat GREAT food and dispose of the waste without much fuss or muss!! WTG BUDDY KIRBY! What meal he prepared for all. As you can see — I had MY SHAKE! Help me Lord … but that WAS Hard NOT to take part in!
Blessings to all … and remember … love while it is today …S
