A Selfie from the Bridge

Today marks 2 years since my Angel Rosie gained her wings. I miss her every single day, and I talk to her every single day, and she will never be forgotten.

Rosie certainly will not be forgotten, because she left me with a bottomless reservoir of fond memories. That's why today, in honor or my Rosie, I do not want to go through the day with a heavy heart. Yes, 2 years ago today was the worst day of my life thus far. But, the 21 years before that, the 21 years with which I shared my life with Rosie, were some of the best days of my life. And so, to honor my Rosie, those are the days that I am remembering today.

In fact, it's none other than my Angel Rosie starring in our selfie for the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by our good furiends over at The Cat on My Head.

 
Now, back in the day, there were no selfie sticks, or all that great of cameras. So poor Rosie could only snap whatever selfies the human assistants could manage. This is one of them.


Can you tell what you're looking at there? That's Rosie being pushed in a play stroller, by me. Yep, I used to push Rosie around in a stroller. She had the patience and tolerance of a saint, let me tell you. For those who don't know or don't remember, Rosie was with me from the time I was 4 until I was 26. The brave girl put with me for that long, bless her heart.


Thank you, my Angel Rosie. Thank you for the memories. I will treasure them always and forever, and because of them, you will always be with me. Until we meet again.

  1. This is a special and lovely tribute to your sweet Rosie. I really love the way you remembered her this day. It is so sweet. What a special lady she was. I'm somewhat amazed that it's been two years. I remember your posts about her and how your love for her was conveyed in each one. I truly hope you don't have a heavy heart today but I know how hard it is. Remembering all the wonderful times you had with her is a great choice. Hugs to you.
