All You Need Is Love...
OK, I’ll be the first to admit this is a gratuitous post. It gives me the opportunity to use and delete two images that I’ve been holding onto for a while.
However, I feel like I’m cheating the readers if I just leave it at this. Cute, big deal, but I will use this post to reflect upon last year.
Last year our pal Tryan (the stat whore) had a contest on his website to give away some wonderful locally produced food items. I think it may have been a ploy to boost his stats. I’ve given up on my stats. If you notice I’ve removed my counter because I don’t want feel obligated to numbers and I don’t care who is looking and who is not. I mean, Rust is just blog, not a business and your humble narrator is just another dopey blogger…BFD. Anyway, the rules of how to get points in Tryan’s contest were confusing at best, but somehow I ended up being a winner. Auntie L was a winner as well. Auntie, being a nosey sort badgered me to find out when I would be going to pick up my prize and wouldn’t you know, she showed up at the same time.
I was going to lie and not show up when I said I would, but I’m honestly glad I did. Auntie has become a true friend. She has personally helped me out on several occasions and only laughs when I complain about her driving instead of telling me to get out and walk. She has been a voice of reason when ever my thought process starts going to the dark side. She is a gifted painter and I’m proud to have one of her pieces hanging on a wall of prominence in my house.
Though I may be expressive in my writing, I am not a big communicator. Auntie understand and gives me my space, but every once in a while she will phone me to check in to say hi and ask how I’m doing.
Auntie has found true love this year, and my wish for her that the love forever remains as vivid as it is now for her. She is a good person with a lot to give and a lot of love in her heart. And if I may, today I send some extra love her way.
