M = marbles…


Have you ever been told that you have lost your

I have!
But those that have said so are the ones
who have lost their M2016arbles.
I may be a bit ditzy but I  know
where my M2016arbles are at all times.
Well, to be honest, I sometimes lose track
of some of them but I always know where
at least one  M2016arble 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 M2016arble 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 M2016arble because
without it…
honestly, it’s better not think about that.

That’s my post for the letter

  1. 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! 😉

    1. 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.

  2. 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!

    1. 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.

        1. 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.

          1. 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.

  3. 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.

    1. 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.
