Approaching 100...



You didn't really think I'm approaching 100 did you? OK, whew! No it's the post I'm talking about.


It is true I caught the blogging bug in July of this year.

 
I saw a shrink (my daughter) for help, because I'm obsessed with blogging. She just said, "I told you so."

 
I prayed for deliverance. But God seems to have bigger fish to fry.

So I have accepted that I enjoy this time consuming, thought provoking, but delightful new obsession. I can't and refuse to be cured.

I love blogging as much as a warm summer day, a good cup of coffee or a kiss.

I love blogging more than taking my vitamins, my job, or cleaning toilets.

I don't love blogging more than my soul, my family or my health. (Just thought I would make that clear to family and friends,just in case they are entertaining the idea of hiding my computer.)

What will I give away? Well, it WON'T be money.

No not money.

It WON'T be a diamond!

It WON'T be a sailboat!

It WON'T be love (I'm not that kind of girl).


It's nothing to write home about (clue) and dear to my heart (clue). Just stay tuned. You might want to enter. You might like it.

  1. Dear JW....having read your blogs now for the last few months, I've never been disappointed in your content....so varied with your many interests, your faith, family, pets, compassion, sense of humour,style, sometimes a sense of doubt within yourself.....all written in your inimitable way, which lifts my day. I'm glad you've got the blogging bug...keep going girl!

  7. I started blogging at the end of July after my poor blog languished forgotten for almost 2 months. I love the interaction and reading other people's perspectives. I find it interesting how many regular bloggers are women. Hmmmm.

  10. Elspeth, It IS amazing how many regular women bloggers there are. We women have more to say, more to share, just more...than men.

  11. I've been bitten, too. I love how blogging has changed my life. Due to health problems, I was spending way too much time hanging around the house, rarely going anywhere. I've found that I feel a lot better after getting out in the world, even if it's for just an hour. Seems to clear the cobwebs on a bad day!
