Beware of The BLOG...it creeps, it leaps, it glides & slides all over the place.
I really respected this woman. Great First Lady and First Mom.
Her influence on her husband and her sons, and daughter who lived to adulthood changed a nation in ways that we are not able to quantify. I suggest that those changes were all for the better since she was a strong woman with steadfast moral values. She understood people, and the human condition and sought to exercise kindness and promote literacy as cures to a really messed up world. I think that she will be remembered fondly as a woman who did good - and what more can you ask for than that?
DaBlade: She was the best Bush for sure.
LL: She made the world a brighter place and her passing leaves it a little darker.
A Mama Bear:-(
Granny Annie: The best Bush ever.
A wonderful woman, mother, wife and first lady. Rest in peace, Barbara. ♥
Her family called her the Enforcer. What a great compliment.
There is a great story about her that was going around several years ago, it cannot be true but it should be. She and George were driving through an area of Texas and stopped at the only gas station in a small town. The owner was there and when Barbara saw him she jumped out of the car and ran over to give him a huge hug, and they talked and talked for several minutes.Back in the car, George asked her who that was, and she said he was her first boyfriend back when she was in high school. George grinned and said, "So if you'd married him, you would be the wife of the owner of a gas station in a small town in Texas, and instead you are married to the President of the United States." Barbara answered, "No, George, you don't understand. If I'd married him, HE would be President of the United States!"
Sandee: Yes, she was a wonder.
Jan: Yes, she kept them all in line. Sort of like Chuck Norris ;)
Messymimi: That sounds like the kind of story she would've liked. Heck, she probably started it ;)
