May Day

I think I’ve fallen and can’t get up. Can you – will you lend me hand?

Build me up, so that I feel better about me?

Tell me how much I am justified in my actions / reactions?

Insist that everything will be okay tomorrow?

Pray for me – send good vibes my way?

Clip and polish my toenails? (thanks Jannie)

Offer to clean my house? (please, anyone? hello?)

Compliment me and tell me, please, how brilliant, insightful and wonderful I am?
(purdy please with a whole jar of cherries on top)

Let me know how much I have taught you about life, love and even those little things you didn’t know you wanted to know?

So I was just wandering when you blog what do you expect from your dear internets? Well I mean don’t y’all want all those things and maybe more?

Or do you even expect anything?

Blogging is a great sounding board, a fairly harmless way of getting things off your chest. Telling your opinions out right, your beliefs, your concerns, lessons you have learned, information you simply must share. So many of us do it because we enjoy writing and get very excited when a post idea pops in our purdy lil’ heads or some headline or gossip line strikes our interest and we can actually offer our view point to the masses (that would be y’all my dear internets).

So the point of this post is What? Please take a moment and think this question over…think…mull…wander…consider… and a conclusion…So what’s your conclusion? Did you forget the question, ummm okay… I'll wait a bit longer… l - o - n - g - e – r

My point is – for the entertainment of my dear internets and for myself. Yes sometimes I have stuff I simply must say cause it makes me feel better, cause I want, no I need sympathy. Sometimes I just have to know that I’m not the only one that feels a certain way. Yes it’s true sometimes I need prayer and good vibes enough to fill the universe, or I want you to know something for your own good (information that is) sometimes it's just because.

But I read y'all on accounta I love reading y'all. So you are welcome, my dear internets.

I write and share photos because I enjoy it, and I hope for some response to my thoughts. Sometimes I post hoping to make someone smile or laugh or brighten their day in some way. Mostly I feel I am sharing things with my friends, and it makes me feel like I'm part of something bigger than myself.

Verrrrrry nice feets!!

lol on how you said "clip" them, as in what I do to my shih-tzus nails. :)

Paige, you ARE wonderful, all that and much much MORE!!!

When I post I hope to make someone either smile, laugh, cry, sing or go "WOW -- what a freaking awesome post!!!" The latter if I show before and after pictures and such. :)

I do it for all the reasons you've already mentioned. But mostly I do it to learn. Through blogging I learn about myself. And through the blogs of others I learn about them.

In this new world we can make friends in every country, every social and economic level, and every religion through blogging. These are people we'd never meet or get to know because most of us can't afford to travel the world to make friends.

When I feel down I can pop-in and visit any and all of these friends any time day or night. And they can visit me. I can leave a little message of support for them and they can leave little messages of support for me. They never leave wet towels on the bathroom floor or finish off the milk before I'm out of bed. And best of all they are ALL wonderful people.

What Elizabeth said. :) I blog in the hopes of helping others who might be going through the same things I am, or in the hopes of receiving pity...I mean advice, on something I'm going through for the first time. And I read blogs for the same reasons, as well as for laughs, which is why I come here so Thank You you wonderful woman you!

Very lovely feets!

Congratulations Brian!

When I blog, I want people to share in my joys and sorrows and to hopefully find it an educational experience from time to time.

I blog because it's fun to express myself and meet others while I'm doing so. And I do love hearing what others have to say about my posts. It's nice to see the opinions and thoughts.

I love reading your blog, Paige. And those painted toenails look so pretty!
