The Queen

She reigned longer than I have lived. She has always been in the news, photos, magazines. I almost feel as if I knew her so familiar was her presence to me. She always amazed me. I loved reading about her.

She was a true servant to her country and people. A generous, gracious, strong, gifted Queen who was completely devoted to her duty.

It seems strangely odd she is gone. An emptiness even a little person like myself so far away from it all can feel. Yet she touched my life as well.

Make Your face to shine upon Your servant; Save me in Your loving kindness. Ps 31:16

Rest In Peace dear, generous Queen.

  1. She will be greatly missed. An amazing woman. She was a “constant” for her country, for her people and for the world. She was our Queen too.
    Beautiful post my friend.

    • Indeed so, Nancy. She was quite a woman, monarch, servant to her people, country and world. You are right, she will be greatly missed. Thank you for stopping by. ❤️

  2. A beautiful tribute. Even in her very old age, she was generous with all she had.
    We were greatly blessed. Seemss so strange and empty now. Thanks for sharing. Kath, your FMF neighbour at #28 this week.

  3. What I miss most about our Queen
    is not the pomp and circumstance,
    but that she dreamed the Corgi Dream,
    and she lived the Doggy Dance.
    The Corgi is a special breed,
    low to ground but tall of soul,
    possessed of quite singular need
    to take the world and make it whole
    in the image held in mind,
    obedient and law-abiding,
    subservient, correct, and kind
    never thinking once of hiding
    (such a plan one must disown!)
