Gift of Gab, Rewarded!

Never thought it would happen in a million years....but I've finally hit 100 readers, whooo hooo! That's amazing to me since I talk about nothing most of the time. I look back on the labels for my posts and I have 51 posts labeled Daily Life and 34 labeled Observations. I inherited the "gift of gab," our family all talk at once when we are together! I can write long posts on nothing, but to me it's something.

Like "The Old Medicine Cabinet" after my dentist told me his Mom and Dad had only one bottle of 81 mg aspirin, Pepto Bismol, Band-aids and Calamine lotion in their little medicine cabinet. I was shocked when I looked in ours and realized it held eight different kinds if medicine for a headache, hmmm. Then cold meds, 11 different kinds. Pepto, Mylanta, Imodium, Tums, Gas-X...I'm prepared if my stomach bothers me! Skin creams of all kinds... hydrocortisone, Neosporin, diaper rash... and we haven't had a baby in 30+ years!... Eye drops for dry eyes, eye drops for red eyes, eye drops for allergy season... There are so many medicines, ointment and drops that there's no room for Band-Aids. They have to go into another cabinet!

I've tried to get "National Stay-at-Home Day" started, had a post about Swarovski encrusted toilets, even one sharing my struggles with the middle age game called "Where's my Glasses?" I like sharing and you encourage me with positive comments, affirmations that the stuff that rattles around in this head of mine is worth something. In fact most of you are going through similar if not exact scenarios.

When I talk to my daughters they are repeating the same things we did, now with their kids. School, errands, homework. They worry about them, pray for their safety, correct them and encourage them. It's a never ending, morning till night job. Across the nation we face the same struggles in our lives. Blogging is New Age Over the Fence Neighbors. Turn the computer on and there's that good friend who's come for a visit, Hello...hope you're having a good day!

With lives going full speed ahead...blogging, Facebook and Twitter all make sense now!

    I love all your ramblings..and I think you are right, blogs are the fences of this day.

    Happy day to you!

  3. I agree with you about blogging. If I waited for one of my neighbors to talk to me over the fence I would shrivel and die. I guess that is what happens in the big city. (It's not really that bad.)

    I too have two medicine cabinets overflowing. What is our problem?

  4. Happy New year Joyce.
    I am not here much anymore either but come once in awhile.& enjoy your musings. Sounds like family to me.
