Can you believe.....
It is September 1st...
on Sept. 3 this is what I will hear "can you believe September is almost over!" said Rose
I have heard this for every month for as long as I can remember
my mom, mother, mame, nonna
just one of her Roseisms
the queen of malaprops
the queen of many things
being a lady
setting a table
holding your tongue her generation was proper
in her 99 years of wisdom she has changed her political views
held the hand of many a young woman looking for guidance
& walked me through the most difficult 2 years of my life without a lecture or constructive criticism!!!!!
She is proud of her 2 daughters and adored her son loves and respects (d) her son in laws and has a special bond with her 3 grand daughters in law
She is strong savvy sassy and smart "can't pull the wool...." yes rosism
her buttons pop when she speaks about her 3 grandsons 2 great grandsons and 1 great grand daughter
Sept 16th Rosina will turn 99 she is in want for nothing but she loves loves loves cards so if you feel the urge drop here a line and send it to Pergolina
she will be tickled and she will no doubt say a rosary for you
grazie my lovelies. xo p
