I’ll jog your memory of fun and heartfelt experiences with your Mom, "dates" with your dad where you walked and talked, invariably ending up in front of the ice cream parlor, as well as times spent with Grandma.
There are eight-million stories in the Naked City.
How many are mine? The same as yours...
So get comfortable
because we're going on an adventure back in time,
and have I got a story for you!
Legacies. The dictionary describes a legacy as anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor. This is not for us, as we all live them, but for the generations to follow. They missed out on knowing him,
I hope they don’t miss out on the legacies he left us.
So here’s where legacies begin.
They begin with words of wisdom, and in our case, followed by
“You know what? I love you…”
Not all heroes wear capes…
We all have at least one unsung hero in our lives,
and because of them, we are where we’re supposed to be.
They say that everyone is brought into our lives for a reason,
and if we don’t see it at the time, we will later on.
I know all the reasons now, and I’m forever grateful.
I remember my wedding day as if it were yesterday.
I remember dancing the daddy/daughter dance,
with tears and a smile all at the same time.
I remember that I would now have a husband
to walk beside me, and a new last name.
Weddings are magical.
They are what dreams are made of.
“For it was not into my ear you whispered,
but into my heart.
It was not my lips you kissed,
but my soul…
“That’s what dads do”, said a man from Massachusetts
when he recently went to Ukraine
to get his daughter and grandchild.
My dad always told me if I was uncomfortable
or in trouble of any kind,
I should walk away, get into a cab, and go home.
I was on a date and, although I wasn’t really frightened,
I was somewhat nervous and extremely uncomfortable.
I was younger than the others and they were a little too
avant-garde for me.
First a movie that was beyond my age and naiveté,
then risqué dinner conversation – what’s next?
So what do you think I did then?
There’s nothing like a hug –
it’s like a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter day.
I’m all caught up now, having finally hugged each
of my kids and grandchildren –
although I admit I can’t wait for more…
What about you?
Have you received your long overdue hugs?
Love is different for each relationship in your life.
There’s the love of your parents, siblings, spouse, children,
and even your friends.
Each one is deep, but unique.
The same holds true for your pets.
You love your dog without reservation, from your toes.
And they love you back. Ain’t love grand?
I hope you enjoyed these stories
and that you were transported back to a warm and nostalgic time.
Perhaps with a tear and a smile?
