We’re having a double celebration on today’s post. Please join us for cake and ice cream and coffee—and enjoy. Sorry – no bacon.
The first cause for celebration is that my sweet mother turned 99 yesterday. What a blessing to have this dear lady and wonderful mother in my life for so many years.
These are photos of Mother in her late 40’s or early 50’s and again at 98. She’s not always with us mentally these days, but she’s still the same dear lady who raised me, and she always lights up when I come to see her in her assisted living home. Very few of you know my mother, but if you don’t, raise a coffee cup or cake plate or ice cream dish to your own mothers. They all deserve it.
The second reason for the celebration is that I posted my 500th blog this week. It was actually Tuesday’s blog and not today’s, but who’s counting? That 500 doesn’t include the dozen or two that I published at an earlier blog site and don’t have accurate statistics for.
Among the 500 blogs are 113 on subjects relating to Christianity, 6 about waitresses who worked at restaurants I frequent, 132 on miscellaneous subjects, and 249 in the archives. I suppose I could break down the archives into classifications, but I decided not to go to that much trouble.
Writing these blogs has been enjoyable. I may not have the readers that a Susie Lindau has, but that’s okay. I try to write what God leads me to write, and doing so pleases me, whether my work is read by one person or 1,000.
Since I post twice a week, I should reach 1,000 blogs in the spring of 2020. I hope you’ll be there to celebrate with me at that time. Meanwhile, post a comment below with a link to one of your posts, and hopefully my readers will go over to check you out.
We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.

Double celebration day! You know I share all your love and respect for Mom …. and I am impressed by your 500 blogs, Bro. Kudos!
Thanks, Sis. Looking forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks or so.
Congratulations! Both on your blogging success and your mother’s birthday. She and my late grandma share similar features, so her photo brings back a lot of warm memories for me.
Thanks, Deanne. Glad to help stimulate warm memories.
And I’m very thankful to have had your wonderful mother enriching my life these past 25 years. Keep up the great work blogging. Love, Wife
