olemisfit Posted November 1, 2018 Report Share Posted November 1, 2018 Oh Boy Howdy. The holidays are almost upon us. What a bummer!!! It was always our favorite time of year. Cookie loved to cook, and would she ever put out a feast for Thanksgiving and Christmas both. She always made way to much, but that was always okay. We both loved the leftovers. I was always convinced that she thoroughly believed the old saying about the way to a man's heart was thru his stomach. Did she ever know how to make our tummies happy. Every year she would make me a homemade (every bit of it) german chocolate cake for my birthday in February. It makes my mouth water now to think about how good they always were. Those suckers were heavy as an anvil because of all the ingredients, but were they ever good. The best ingredient in everything she made was her love that she mixed into it all. She was a "keeper". I wish I still had her! These holidays just don't mean anything anymore-not without Cookie. One Christmas she bought a bunch of small tree ornaments that were like miniature gift boxes. I had bought her a nice ring that year as her main gift, and hid it on the tree inside one of those ornaments. After all the other gifts were opened I told her that there was one more gift somewhere in the living room, but she was gonna have to find it. She never did find it---I finally had to get it off the tree and give it to her. With her, I always did have an ornery, fun-loving streak. The holidays were always fun with Cookie. Just being with her and near her were always enough to keep a happy grin on my face. So I don't smile or grin much anymore. And I definitely don't enjoy this time of year anymore. My happiness is in heaven now. But when she and I re-unite when I join her there we will both have something to smile about again. Having that event to look forward to is where I get the grit from to keep on putting one foot in front of the other each day. Cookie is my angel now. One foot in front of the other... Darrel P.S. I don't want to be guilty of spoiling anyone's holiday spirit, so I won't post anymore until sometime in January. Cookie passed on new year's day (2016) so it won't be until after that. Happy Holidays to my family here! 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
