Only Love....

Hi everyone...Vintage Chick here.  I wanted to pop back in here to let everyone know we apologize for the delay in the unveiling of the 13 Steps but sadly, Spicy Chick's mother and Sassy Chick's grandmother, Julie, (who was also like a second mother to me and Apprentice Chick) passed away Sunday.   Spicy Chick was blessed to keep her promise to her mother to go through the journey of dying at home surrounded by all the people she loved and who loved her.

The one thing that I will always remember Julie by was her passionate desire to cook and to feed people.  She was Italian, after all.   :)   Every time I visited, the first thing out of Julie was "What can I fix you to eat?"  She made the best desserts too.  Julie also had a deep compassion for animals and humans alike which she nightly said prayers for.  I can see her now in Heaven feeding everyone and continuing her legacy as a loving woman with a passion for her family and for great food.

A very special quote by Johnny Depp was passed along to Spicy Chick by her sister-in-law when she heard of her mother-in-law's passing.   It goes something like this...

"There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.”

~Johnny Depp~

No wonder Spicy Chick's enchanted man is Johnny.

Always remember that no matter what the circumstances, no matter what questions you want matter what is going on in your life...your best answer is to lean towards "love."  You can't go wrong. 

On a side note, Julie's husband who has also passed on (and who she is reunited with now) had a nickname for her....and that was "love."   I will miss Julie very much.  

We love you, Julie.
