Have you ever been told that you have lost your
But those that have said so are the ones
who have lost their arbles.
I may be a bit ditzy but I know
where my arbles are at all times.
Well, to be honest, I sometimes lose track
of some of them but I always know where
at least one arble is at all times.
I may not always know what’s going on around me.
But even at my ditziest there is always that
one arble rolling around in my head
keeping me aware of what’s going on in there.
Sometimes it drives me crazy banging around in my head.
But it is important to hang onto that one arble because
honestly, it’s better not think about that.
That’s my post for the letter

Marbles were a wonderful think…always so pretty. I tried to get my kids into them, but unfortunately, it never stuck.
Kids today seem to think anything without a battery is no fun. How wrong they are!
Marbles are such lovely things! I once had a coworker who kept a large bowl of them on her desk “in case she lost hers”, and everyone who went by seemed to feel the need to play with them. A few even went missing, but we felt that maybe they went to people who had lost most of theirs and were in dire need! This was a fun post, it ties back into laughter! :-). It also could explain that noise of something bumping around in my head! 😉

What a neat idea to have a jar of marbles on your desk. And how thoughtful to help those who have misplaced theirs.
I can relate. I have a couple of marbles rolling around in my head, not to brag. lol Good post.
It’s good to have more than one. Scary to think of the only one left gets lost.
I have a jar full of marbles stashed in our lanai . . . just in case.
Lucky you. I wish I had the marbles from when I was a kid. It would be fun just to have them on a shelf to look at and sort through now and then.
I am right there with you. If I can hang onto one marble, there is hope! *wink*
Sometimes that one marble just rattles around in my head looking for a friend. Hope there is another in there somewhere.
Yes, I have been told that plenty of times. I imagine as whatever is going on with me progresses (memory and cognitive issues) I’ll be told it even more. Oh well.
I used to have glass marbles, too. Sometimes the fancy ones, but mostly the ones that my daddy brought home from work. He worked at Owens-Corning Fiberglas and was always bringing home green ones. I liked them even better than the colored ones because he had a part in their creation.
Have a blessed day!
I don’t think kids would care for marbles these days. If it doesn’t need to be plugged in or a battery it is of little interest. Kinda sad.
I agree. It is very sad. Some kids will never hold a real book, either. 😦
Very sad about the books. I have a Kindle but only use it for reading if I haven’t been to the library. There is just something special about a “real” book.
I agree. “Real” books are the best. They aren’t dependent on batteries or internet connections. They just depend on you picking them up, opening them, and having enough light to see the words. And nothing compares to the smell of real paper and the feel of a book in one’s hands.
Ah yes, glass marbles. That takes me back a few years. Lost all mine to the class bully!

Oh no! Hope that bully got whupped one day.
Bullies usually do, eventually (are you listening, Donald?)
I used to have a lot of the glass marbles when I was a kid. I wish I still had them, but I lost them a long long time ago.

Tossing It Out
We had colorful glass marbles, too. Some were from my father’s childhood. Sadly, they are gone. Some things don’t seem valuable until you don’t have them anymore.
