D * I * A * N * A

Each May, the Diana, Princess of Wales roses bloom in my yard, reminding me of the people's princess. My contemporary, an example for compassion and devotion to her family, Princess Diana will always have a special place in my heart. I know she does for many of you as well. Memories of waking up at the wee hours of the morning to watch her wedding on television, of the births of her children, and of her solid fashion sense endear her to our hearts. Her selfless example in serving those less fortunate remains to this day and is now the responsibility of each of us as we remember her and follow her example in sharing with those in need. When the Diana, Princess of Wales roses bloom, I am keenly reminded of her and the joy she brought to many. Some emotions cannot be put into words, so instead I post pictures of tokens that I remember her by.

Do you have special memories of Princess Diana and her influence upon your life? Would you share them with us?

  1. Awww, so sad to have lost such a shining light, especially at such a young age.

    As a young teen, I remember her fashion sense having a tremendous influence on me. I must have had a dozen hats, all Diana style.

    And because her birthday is the same day as Canada Day, she often spoike of her connection to my homeland. All the more reason for a young Canadian girl to idolize her.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts about her.

    Hugs, Michele

  2. Love the Princess Diana rose. I am not sure she had an influence on me, but I had a great respect for her. She loved her boys dearly and had a heart for helping others. I did love seeing her fashions too. She was a lady with style.

  5. The rose is so beautiful. I admired Princess Diana because in spite of her personal unhappiness, she continued to comfort those less fortunate and raise funds for various charities. She always had a kind word and a smile.

  6. I love the British and I read all the books about her. I was pretty fascinated by her like everyone else. I remember that wedding and the funeral. I guess her charitable works would have to be the legacy she left that is to be admired and just her ability to make people love her. She was truely a princess.
