It’s All About You!
Enough about me…
I want this post to be all about you!
We all have stories to share…sad stories, overcoming hardship stories, funny stories, stories of faith, stories of triumph.
It’s your turn to tell a story, share a laugh, or just tell me where you’re from – scroll down to the Comments box and just start writing!
You pick the topic and decide how much you’d like to write…one sentence or two… or two dozen. Go for it!
I can’t wait to hear what you have to say!
Have a GREAT day!
I’m chuckling to myself as I see no one wants to talk today! And no one likes the idea either!
Oh well, it was worth a try! We’ll go back to stories tomorrow!
I always want a chat, but you have to wait half a day for me to wake up, well, actually I’m half a day in front of you, so, oh dear…. now I’m really confused.
I’m sure everyone is just waiting for some big-mouth like me to start, and then they’ll all rush in with their stories, right?
I’m a 45 year old, mother/step-mother of 8! That’s right, 8 beautiful bouncy big children. 3 of whom are still dependent on us, and 5 who are grown and flown.
We are a very close family, so we spend every occasion we can together, and it’s the ones where every single child is home that make me the happiest of course.
It’s harder than you would think to get 5 grown children home when one of them lives 800klms away and another over 1500klms. Thankfully 3 of the 5 grown children live closer to home.
Very soon our eldest boy is getting married here in his home town, and we are so excited. The whole family is abuzz with activity.
There are going to be 5 generations of my partners family present at the wedding!! His dear Grandmother Ruby is 101 years old! She tells some fantastic stories about life on the farm way back when. If only she had a blog!!
Oh my goodness Meg! You will have a housefull! What a wonderful story of your family! I do understand a bit about how difficult it is to get them home once they’ve left! And what an exciting time – a wedding! And to make it even more exciting the 5 generations all together – that’s amazing! Maybe you should sit with 101 year old Grandmother Ruby to record her stories!
She tires very easily, and I’d hate to put too much pressure on her. She is one of the loveliest souls I have ever met.
Oh I can well imagine she does. My husband’s two Grandmothers will be turning 91 soon and also tire easily. I can’t imagine how she does it at 101. It is so wonderful to have these lovely ladies in our lives isn’t it? What wonderful treasures they are!
Fitty is blessed with a longevity gene, and your husband seems doubly so? My mother is a trim and very fit 75, but all my grandparents are long gone to heaven!
Grandma Ruby is a family icon, and a community treasure. She is very well known in our valley and her daughter, and Fitty’s dad have a lot of treasures she has passed down, such as the Family Bible. What a gift!! It has been through so many generations it’s hard to know exactly how old it is?
Oh to have that longevity gene! My parents both passed at 69 – a little over one year apart and their parents many years before. I treasure my in-laws and the Grandma – God gave me so much more than the gift of my husband when he brought us together!
Hi Patty, thanks for the follow, but you are following an inactive blog. I made a few mistakes creating “at home work play” so if you’d like to follow here’s the link to my posts?
Thanks again, and sorry for mucking it up 🙂
I saw that it seemed inactive, but couldn’t get the other one to come up. Thanks for the heads up…I’ve got your new one now. You may want to make sure to change (I don’t know how) your link that shows up with your gravataar…what I see is: athomeworkplay.wordpress.com. Which explains why I couldn’t find the correct you!
