Thursday Portrait......




Hi Everybody....Like the Ear Ring?
Notice something strange about My Thursday Portrait?
(Other than some freezing Old Fart)
This week there is No 55!
Get It? No 55........


The beautiful Peaceful lady sitting in the bottom photo, is one of my Oldest and most loyal Blogger friends Mona. On Dec. 21st her husband died.
Her Link is on my sidebar if you know her and wish to send condolences.
A few of my fellow bloggers and myself affectionately refer to her as the "Town Crier" because she knows everybody's Birthday, and proudly announces it to the World.
She lives in Agra India, and that might be a scary place for a widowed woman.
She is a Brilliant, Compassionate Soul...And I send her my prayers.
May God give you Strength Mona....
Peace...!!!

Hi, Galen: I didn't know about Mona's husband. What happened? I'll go by her blog and leave her a message. She is such an intelligent, sweet person. Thanks for letting us know. D

Oh, my God! I had no idea about Mona's husband.

Thom said...

My thoughts are with her. Happy Holidays. Nice earring.

Dianne said...

Thank you, Gman
I posted a poem for her, written under similar circumstances for a friend,

I hope our prayers are heard.

This blog-world is strange and alien to me but such a supportive place (the only blog I know, what luck!)

Have a warm and honest and intimate holiday with those you love, because, as I always say, LITSNT

Merry Christmas to you, G Man and my heart goes out to Mona.

buffalodick said...

She E-mailed me, so I figured she wanted it private... Great lady, dealing with a tragic loss.

Missy said...

Galen thanks for sharing this. Mona will need the words of encourage and support during this time.

I stopped by and left her a note. I know I don't participate of late, but I still keep tabs on you all.

To many crisis's in my own life right now. Thanks again for sharing about Mona.

G-Man said...

Buff...She E-Mailed me as well, and asked that I tell others. So I was just following her request.

G-Man said...

Thanks Missy...I know you are spread pretty thin.
Mona appreciates any words of love!

Cloudia said...

Aloha, Friend!

such sadness,
and so unexpected.
my thoughts are with you Mona.
such a beautiful picture, too...

and G-man,
you look pretty darn cool
with your festive earring...
eyes looking pretty yummy there!
happy Merry, sweetie...xo

Oh, Mona dear, my condolences.

Mojo said...

India was at one time a difficult place for widows. But these days, it's not nearly so bad. Which is fortunate, because there's enough to deal with without adding on the stress of facing life in an ashram.

My prayers are with Mona and her son, especially in this time of loss.

And "official" 55 or not, this is one that needed writing, and needed to be published today. So if I'm the only one playing that's fine. But I'll play on, because it needs saying.
