I recall waking very early so that Mom and I could watch the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. I suppose many women my age share a similar memory; gazing at the TV with tears of joy, in awe of the formality and the fact that we were watching a living fairy tale. I remember every shy glance Lady Diana gave her Prince. I fell in love that day with love. For me, Princess Diana will always be someone I admire, someone that showed me even though fairy tales don't have the predictable endings, life can be a wonderful tale.
Sadly, I recall to well the day she passed, the news coverage and how again, I was gazing at the TV but this time with tears of grief. May we all handle challenges as gracefully as she tried to and may we all try to give as much of ourselves to others as she did.
Love always to Princess Diana.
Best wishes and high hopes to each of you dear friends,
Jennie and the Pekes
