There is a quote in the movie, Bridges of Madison County, that Robert says to Francesca, “This kind of certainty comes but just once in a lifetime.” He is telling her how special their love is. I loved that movie and that quote is one of my favorites. But I was lucky enough to find that kind of certainty twice in my lifetime…
Many of you met Keith and I over the years at Lazy Cloud. He was the love of my life. Today he would have been 70 years old but in Jan. of 2011 he passed away from cancer. Keith and I had a wonderful life together. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. He was a sweet, loving man who treated me fantastic. I never posted that he passed away because I didn’t want people to come to Lazy Cloud and be sad, or feel sorry for me. I want everyone to be happy. I had a wonderful marriage and for a long time I couldn’t move on. But that chapter of my life has closed.
A new chapter opened over a year ago when I met Jeff Gordon – no, not the race car driver! But a wonderful man who I fell in love with and who has made me totally happy again. Jeff came into my life when I was least expecting it. I was amazed that I found someone that who was so sweet and kind and loving, who could always keep me laughing, and who had the same goals in life as I did. I feel so lucky that “that kind of certainty come into my lifetime” for the second time.
Jeff is a singer who entertainers the winter Texans and snowbirds in the winter and I travel with him then. In the summer, we come to Wisconsin and he helps me with Lazy Cloud. So, as you can see, my life has changed a lot.
Right now we are staying at Lazy Cloud while we are waiting for our 5th wheel to be completed. So if you see me wandering the grounds, come on over and I’ll introduce you to Jeff.
In closing, remember that life is always changing. Love that special person in your life right now because you never know what tomorrow will bring. So come to Lazy Cloud and “Fall in love all over again!”
