Oh Lovey...

Have you ever walked around all day with 'that feeling'...you know TODAY is something you need to remember...was it an appointment I am forgetting? Was I supposed to call someone today? Is it...Aunt Lee's Birthday. I felt a tug at my heart and knew I couldn't let this day go without a mention on my blog. It is late, very late the day is almost over, but this one's for US.


I wrote about my Aunt last year on this date. Today I will be brief. No matter how much time goes by I still can't get over not having her here. As my Mom and my Aunt were fond of saying, "It's nice to talk with the Lord, but having someone with clothes on is really not so bad"!  Exactly.


So, Happy Birthday today Aunt Lee. I hope you know how much you are loved. Still. 


Ohhhhh Lovey...

How nice to spend some time remembering a loved one who is no longer with us. I don't think we're supposed to ever completely get over losing them - we just turn our sorrow into loving memories.

She must have been a very special person! How fortunate you were to have had her in your life. Hugs, Des xoxo

What a touching acknowledgement of your aunt, who was obviously a special person in your life.

We should all remember to "honor each other" from time to time.

Blessings to you - Marsha

Sush - that was a lovely tribute to your Aunt Lee, and a lovely happy photo to go with it. It's always so terribly sad to lose people we love, but they live on in our hearts with the warm memories they leave behind.

>Anna...lol they broke the mold when they were born...

>Pat...it is a sweet remembrance.

>Desiree...she was a million things to me...

>Marsha...thank you, I'm just glad the back of my mind is so very close to the front, so I could remember...

>Diane...the photo is so so old, that was a Dorothy Hamill haircut I was sadly sporting, a US Olympic ice skater her haircut became all the rage way back when...but her smile was always the same!

That is a lovely photo Sush.

I think it is great that you can remember your aunt with such love and affection.

Take care.

My friend Sush,
Oh, yes aunties are always sweet in our heart, aren' they♡♡♡
My mom's elder sister showed true understanding for me and when we lost her it was hard for both of my mom and me.
mom's younger sister supported me a LOT when bro died last year. It sure was a big help for me mentaly.
I really loved the words,"It's nice to talk with the Lord, but having someone with clothes on is really is not so bad"
Blessing to your sweet heart, Orchid.

This was a special post, Sush, and I also clicked thru to last year's birthday tribute. Interesting how Aunt Lee came to be called "Charlie." I lost an aunt a few months ago and I am sorry that your heart aches without your beloved Aunt Lee. You do look like Dorothy Hamill's twin sister in that photo. It's easy to see where your sons and daughter got their good looks. If you'll check the previous post you'll see that I followed your advice and read your Mother's Day piece. Thank you, dear friend!

Sush said...

>Fiona...she was a persona unto herself and as loving and kind as anyone could ever want...

>Orchid...yes our Aunties are like second Mother's aren't they? I'm glad you had your Aunt's support when you lost your brother.

>Tom...sadly, the only thing resembling in the slightest of Dorothy Hamill's beauty might be the haircut, lol, but you are ever the gentleman to say otherwise! Thank you for taking the time to go back and read about my aunt...

I meant to add, Sush, to the earlier comment that I had a great aunt we called Lovey. Seeing that here in your blog brought back some wonderful memories this morning- thanks!

I know that feeling well!

Happy Birthday to your very special aunt!

Kristina said...

This is a lovely tribute! Thank you for sharing! :)

What a sweet post! The thought is what counts!

I have an aunt who has been special to me my whole life. Above and beyond in all ways. Luckily she is still here, so now it's my turn to give back to her. And it's a joy.

Someone with clothes on :) I know this would have made Aunt Lee smile.

Donna said...

Funny...I have always felt the same way but haven't put into words "talking with someone with clothes on"! Ha!! How wonderful that you had such a special bond with your aunt! I felt that way about my mother and grandmother!! I'll miss them and their talk and laughter till the day I die!!
PS. Thanks for stopping over to comment on my blog!

Talking about someone no longer around is like a little visit with them... so very nice and good for the soul. I am glad you and all of us got to visit with your aunt today....precious....

Sush said...

>Shelly, we should have called her Lovey, I knew a teacher who was called that. Lovey was what she called all of us...'Hi Lovey, how are you doing darling?'.

>Bossy Betty...I guess we are getting to that age and stage we all are too familiar with this feeling.

>Kristina..thanks for the sweet comment.

>BB I knew it was something I had to do even if it was late in the day.

>Karen...it is a joy to be able to reciprocate an aunt's love and care, isn't it?

>Rick..she would have been smiling big time!

>Donna...I guess we will always have a hole in our heart for those we loved and have gone, until we meet again.

>Kathi..it was good for my soul. Most of my family doesn't leave comments here, but on FB and they all felt it was a good remembrance for their soul.
