rosie was terrific on our show. she was gracious, kind, funny and sincere.
as paulie said "rosie is so regular. she’s so normal." and she is.
yeah, she’s a super celebrity but rosie has no pretense and no airs. she’s just cool.
my brother brian (he’s so great!) called in and said that i have been struggling since my mom died, but since i met rosie, i have been happily distracted and focused on something other than my loss.
i have been struggling and i have been sad, and i have felt little joy, and i have been consumed by thoughts of my mom.
and meeting rosie has given me an opportunity to dwell on something other than missing bunny.
but now i keep thinking how great it would’ve been for my mom to hear yesterday’s show. i know she would’ve loved hearing rosie with alexis and me. and i know my mom would’ve called in with something completely retarded and ridiculous. and i know i would’ve said "ok mommy, i love you. bye!!!!" and we all would’ve giggled.
so maybe my mom had a hand in my getting to know rosie. maybe she was orchestrating from somewhere beyond.
no, i don’t REALLY believe that, but i can bask in the fantasy that she’s not gone she’s just "unreachable" and is still involved in my life as she always was.
so thanks ro, for a much needed break from the morose.
please check out rosie’s website for information about her wonderful foundation.
and here is rosie and me with our feet up in the office.
