Title: Cake
Post by: quiger on March 22, 2012, 02:20:49 PM
I felt the need to share this, it's just a fond memory and musing. Today as I was replying to a post (at a social networking site), I replied, "I love cake". Instantly I remembered, someone else loved cake as much as me, our beloved Care. I remembered that when her daughter was getting married she was going to have cupcakes instead of a wedding cake. You would have thought it was a crises, lol.  She's the only person I ever knew who loved cake as much as I do, even though we rarely ate it.

I know some of you will remember this about her, as I so unexpectedly did, while replying to a simple post. I love these memories of her. They seem to pop up out of nowhere. They make me smile and I know that's exactly what she would have wanted.

Still missing her,

What a lovely way to remembe a very special friend. I didn't know Care myself, but I'm grateful to hear about her from her loyal friends.

QT - This subject line caught my eye for sure!!   ;) I love cake too!!  (I'm always posting about cake on here!!  Even though I like cake, I too, very seldom eat any.) 

I miss Care too.  Like a lifelong friend that you don't see very often - but, when you get together - you just picked up where you left off as if no time passed at all.

Cake and milkshakes - two of Cares favorites!

((Hugs to you, my friend)),

I didn't remember that about Care, but I do remember her talking about her kids. She was quite the gal and she is most certainly missed.

I have never seen cupcakes at a wedding. I wonder what flavor she had. Irish

Thanks for that memory, Quiger  :)  Sometimes while doing everyday things, an image of Care comes to my mind, too.  She would love that thinking of cake reminds you of her!

Like Care, many of you have made a difference in my life.  I appreciate you!  May you be blessed with peace and health and happiness (and have many opportunities to eat cake!  Life is short!)

Oh gosh Quigers, thanks for the "cake" memories!  Care was warm and wonderful...and remembering the cupcakes instead of a big cake brings a smile to my face too.  :D
