Beautiful ! Just Like My Wife



My parents were the perfect couple.
They always stuck up for one another.
My Dad had a lot of gusto for life
and My Mom complimented him
by supporting everything he did or wanted to do.
Or almost everything lol
Then he'd stop and reflect and know she was right.
He was right in many constructive things
She was right when it came to life and people.
Whenever he liked something, he'd always say:
Beautiful! Just like my wife.
Everyone would want to come to see who his wife was.
Then they'd tell him he indeed had a beautiful wife and he always loved hearing it.
He was a brat this way.
I used to watch them the last few years of their lives and they
were like two 16 year old love birds.
He, with his arm around her shoulders and
She, with her head on his.

My Mom was sick with Parkinsons and Alzheimers
Dad watched over her with so much patience.
When she had visions he would spend a good two hours
almost every night, cause that's when she had them,
explaining to her what she had and then she would
realize her brain was playing tricks on her.

It was both sad and beautiful to watch the two of them.

They said: You know. It can happen any time now.
Always with a smile

And I'd reply: Nah. You still have many years ahead.
Always with a furrowed brow.
I could never believe or accept that this life force would ever end.
It couldn't and it shouldn't.

No matter how much you prepare, you are never ready to say good bye.
Never ready to close the book as you reach the end of a good story.
The story lives on.
You put the book away and then your eye grazes over the shelf
where it lies
You pick it up and memories flood in

While time stands still
Music and songs return
Laughter, comedy, anger, sorrow, forgiveness,
hardships, joy, contentment,
All the poetry of love and struggles of life
Echo, never ending,
Through a few well chosen words.

Beautiful! Just like my Wife!


A man is driving along a highway and sees a rabbit jump out across the middle of the road.

He swerves to avoid hitting it, but unfortunately the rabbit jumps right in front of the car.

The driver,
a sensitive man as well as an animal lover,
pulls over and gets out to see
what has become of the rabbit.
Much to his dismay, the rabbit is the Easter Bunny, and he is
DEAD.

The driver feels so awful
that he begins to cry.
A beautiful blonde woman driving down the highway
sees a man crying on the side of the road
and pulls over.

She steps out of the car and asks the man
what's wrong.

"I feel terrible," ! he explains,
"I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny with my car and KILLED HIM."


The blonde says,"Don't worry."

She runs to her car
and pulls out a spray can.
She walks over to the limp, dead Easter Bunny ,
bends down,
and sprays the contents onto him.

The Easter Bunny jumps up,
waves its paw at the two of them
and hops off down the road.

Ten feet away he stops,
turns around and waves again,

he hops down the road another 10 feet,
turns and waves,

hops another ten feet,
turns and waves,

and repeats this again and again and again and again,
until he hops out of sight.

The man is astonished.
He runs over to the woman and demands,


"What is in that can?
What did you spray on the Easter Bunny ?"


The woman turns the can around
so that the man can read the label.


It says..



(Are you ready for this?)


(Are you sure?)


(You know you're gonna be sorry)


(Last chance)


(OK, here it is)


It says,



"Hair Spray

Restores life to dead hair,and adds permanent wave."


Happy Easter!!!

AWE SO TOUCHED .
Your parents were blessed.

Mama Zen said...

It sounds like your parents had a beautiful marriage!

Mama Zen -Both my parents were in German labor camps along with tons of other people.
They all new the meaning of freedom and food on the table and what true friendship was. You survived because of heroes who stepped forth, taking risks to throw you a crust of bread.They included brave Germans who didn't like what was going on in their country. As a result, my parents never taught hate.
They said there are good and bad people and you find them everywhere.They life journey was such that my Mom was always two weeks behind wherever my Dad was and they met here in Canada, fell in love and made every day count from that day forward as a couple.
Yes, I'd say they had a great marriage and I was blessed being raised by them.

Gattina said...

My mother had nothing to say and my father critisized her from morning til evening. Never ever would I have married a guy like my father !

A Lady's Life said...

Gattina - I am so sorry. Thats too bad for your Mom. It is so nice when things work out between people.It gives kids a good example of what marriage and love is.

A Lady's Life said...

Akelamalu - To lose your soul mate is indeed heart breaking.
Thats special love your Dad had.

A Lady's Life said...

Sandy thanks.
You never know what you have until you lose it.
So it pays to keep and treasure things that come into your life.

Last night we had a story about this extremely fat pig who saved her owner.
She loves him.

I LOVE THIS POST. I wanted all my life to have this kind of love. I don't know if I ever will, but I'm hopeful that GOD is preparing something just as special for me.

Love you much!

PS. I see exactly why you're such a sweet, king and loving spirit. It's in your genes!
