Chivalry is not dead.
He picked me up at half past seven,
a paper bag, with an open hand.
The car door opened to love songs, and treats,
a perfect gentleman to say the least.
Delicious meal toasted
with champagne and chocolates.
We followed the petals,
to fresh clean sheets and
warm snuggly hugs and kisses.
Heavy breathing and wet kisses ensued.
Slippers in the morn, and the Sunday newspaper.
No chivalry is not dead,
my Hunter, the protector,
the best friend I ever had.

Happy Fri-Yay Funday my Funday Friends!
Wishing you love and dreamy moments of all of the things that float your boat which includes, just you taking good care of you, whatever that looks like❣️ I’m early to send you wishes I know, but I have a MasticadoresUsa post coming out on Sunday that I’ll post on Monday so I wanted to make sure to wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day.
Buse thanks you for your continued prayers and donations and wanted to let you know that her friends finally got in touch and are safe. She has been in touch with Doctors in Turkey who need portable toilets urgently, has reached out to London Breed San Francisco, Mayor amongst others.
I’m sending you love and prayers to remind you to do the same thing as Buse, while you are grieving. This is a tall order but moving into action during crisis helps you and others be part of the solution. Thank you for all you do in your life big and small and for being the difference and facing everyday obstacles, being an example to others.
Love yourself, love the one you’re with and remember action in words and deed are gifts of the heart. Reach out and touch someone during the Love and Heart Month to someone you know or someone you don’t know. Be that difference, don’t just talk about it. Love looks different at different times.
When I visited my soon to be 97 year old FIL (Feb. 17th is his b.day) last night at 6 p.m., he thought it was morning. Who wouldn’t when you are laying in a hospital bed all day. He refused to get up for his assessment to evaluate whether he could be released back “home” which he desperately wants. He is deaf which makes it even harder. I helped him get his hearing aides in (which barely help), got him acclimated to the “here and now”, was loving, kind and direct. I made him eat the dinner they had left him and made him do his exercises and gave him a massage. And of course I brought ice cream to sweeten his spirit.
Love is not always chocolate and flowers so look inside at what’s needed moment to moment and respond from that place to yourself and others.
As for me a day without chocolate is a day without sunshine and lucky me; Today I have both.
Love and treats of the heart give you the courage and strength you need to face whatever you are going through. Hang in there, hold the soft parts of yourself gently and pull yourself up by the boot straps and put the Yay in your day. It’s the weekend after all!
Hugs and Love my friends,
