I Get By...

How apropos that this week's Theme Thursday topic is..

Friend

My friends have come out of the woodwork this week to help out after my fall. I have awesome friends both locally and in the more global online world. One thing about blogging is that no matter what the hour of the day or night, you can always feel in touch with somebody. When I wake up in the middle of the night and can't sleep, I know I can reach out and connect with a fellow blogger. Reading about what's going on with somebody else, getting a chuckle or guffaw, being inspired by some nuggets of wisdom or reading a response to something you wrote makes you remember how connected you are in the world. And that's what having friends is all about. To connect to other people is to be alive.

I can think of no better way to say "Thank You!" than to share an oldie, but goody.



Love to you all!

Now, please share the love and check out the other Theme Thursday participants by clicking on this link:

When you wake up in the middle of the night, you reach out and connect with a fellow blogger?

Your husband doesn't mind these people sitting in your bed?

Cool.

I loved starting the day here in CA with John, Paul, George and Ringo. Thanks!

The Silver Fox said...

Love the Beatles, by the way. My Silver Fox blog and my little-visited "You Learn Something New Every Day (Almost)" blog have both had Beatle entries recently.

Leah said...

Bloggy friends can be such a blessing! And I thank you too for the gift of the Beatles.

Betsy said...

So glad you have friends to tend to you! Thanks for posting this song...haven't heard it in quite a while and it is perfect for today's theme!

Willow: It just popped into my head! Thanks for the good wishes!

Lee: True, indeed... always good to hear from you!

Moooooog: My ex-husband couldn't care less... he's gettin' all the lovin' he needs from his newer, younger, improved spouse.

Brian: Happy TT right back at you, my friend!

Skip: I always wanted to learn salsa dancing! It would make me appear so much more exotic.

Janice: It's always good to start your day with the Beatles. Hope your weather is sunnier than ours. (But, of course it is! That's why you live in California!)

Silver Fox: Thanks for stopping by! I'll be sure to check out your "You Learn Something New Every Day (Almost)" blog!

Leah: The Beatles are always a wonderful gift!

gayle said...

That song is stuck in my head!! Love it!!

Baino said...

So sorry Cat I tend to only visit after Theme Thursday. I didn't know you'd had a fall. Hope all is OK. Posting about friends was really hard this week so I took the safe option. Plus it tied in nicely with my daughter's birthday but I can't tell you how much I value my bloggers. They're there at all hours, we chat, we email, we support each other, we laugh with each other and we worry when we're absent for long periods. It's a fantastic community of the best friends I've never met.

Jasmine said...

The Beatles are wicked. My 3 year old daughter loves the yellow submarine, I remember growing up with that movie too.

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

You wake up in the middle of the night? How lucky for you! I've reached the point where I don't think I ever actually fall asleep. In fact, the only time I get any good shuteye anymore is when I'm driving. And that's just not safe, is it?

Madame DeFarge said...

Okay, caught up now (intrusion of real life occasioned absence from rather more enjoyable blog world). Sorry to hear about your fall, sounds ghastly and very painful, but glad you have friends close by to help out. Take care.

otin said...

How did I miss this???

I am there for you anytime!!

The Old Silly said...

Love this. One of my favorite oldies and goodies from my favorite Old Hippie Days band, and from a new blogger friend! What could be better?

Me-Me King said...

We all need a little help from our friends at one time or another. It's awesome that you have so many that can lift your spirits both off and online.

Hope you are feeling better today!!!

CatLadyLarew said...

Thanks, my bloggy family & friends for all the good wishes!

nonamedufus said...

That's the first time I've heard of someone going for a trip...without going anywhere. Hope that leg mends soon CL. Take care.

Ann's Rants said...

Look at all your friends! Hope you recover--if not quickly, at least fully.

Best,
Ann

Little Ms Blogger said...

Being it is 5:30 a.m. when posting this comment, I completely relate to your post.

Hope you're feeling better.

CatLadyLarew said...

Dufus: As they say, "Have a nice trip, see you next fall!"

Ann: Thanks for checking in.

Ms. Blogger: It's nice there's always someone to connect with at 5:30 a.m.

Jeanne said...

I have an award for you over at my place! (Hope you're feeling better.)

When Did I Become said...

Wait, I don't visit you for a week, and you go and fall down the stairs? I loved the pic of your "evil" house. Reminds me of a Simpsons episode...

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

Vic said...

CatLady, my friend:

I have been
A: No earthly good to you
B: Thinking about you for days, and sending you get well vibes.
C: Both A and B

Your house needs to be spoken to sternly.

When did I become my Mom said...

How are you getting by with PT and work?

Mr. Condescending said...

I hope I'm your friend!
