100th Post...

Like so many of you before me, I have reached my 100th post. Blogging has been a true blessing to me. I was on a bumpy path on my sentimenal journey in life and I needed direction. So I began this with alot of hope. And with alot of prayer. It has become a place where I'm able to come and lay down my thoughts. It is a place where I often surrender my dreams. It is a place where I found all of you. Your kindness and gentle ways have been like a soft blanket for me to wrap up in. Your creativity has been an inspiration to me. Your concern and support have encouraged me to keep moving forward and to not give up.

My life is simple, plain, and quiet. There is no way I could possibly come up with 100 things about myself to fill this special post. I love reading blogs with those amazing lists and learning more about all of you lovely ladies. So, in place of such a list, I've decided to share some beautiful, fun, odd, and whimsical things that are a reflection, in their own way, of the number 100...


100 Sea Shells...

100 Lilac blossoms...

100 Candles...

100 Pink Tulips...

100 Hungry Ants...

100 Pink M&M's...

100 Dollars...

100 Flames in a camp fire...

"100 Aker Wood"...

100 Years Old...

100 Pearls of Wisdom...

100 Year Old Car...
The Ford Model T celebrates it's 100th Birthday this month.

100 Yellow Rubber Ducks...

100 Calories...
Gotta Love visiting the LOL Cats! Wrong on so many levels... yet funny on so many more... I am bad. I know. You can find the link to "I Can Has Cheezburger" on my side-bar.

100 Year Old Fish...
Nick Calleya, 36, from Cubert in Cornwall and George Carstairs from Scotland landed the 500lb, 100-year-old monster white Sturgeon while angling from a boat in the Fraser River in British Columbia in Canada. The 10ft-long giant was snared using a rod and line with salmon eggs as bait. How creepy is that?!! Feel free to email me for the URL link to this weird story.

100% CUTE...
Two precious, adorable Ferrets... no, these are not mine. Please check my side-bar for more, and new, 100% Cute Ferrets!

Thank you all for being an awesome group of amazingly lovely ladies. Thank you for walking along with me on my sentimenal journey. Thank you for sharing with me, and for allowing me to come into your lives. I admire and care for you all so very much. I'm looking forward to the next 100 posts!
God bless...

Until another time... Pearl

Hidy!

Happy, happy 100 to you!!

My favorite picture is the one of the little lady celebrating 100.

Reminds me of a precious 100 year old lady that lived in my dad's retirement home. Maddy always had a smile and a story. Since she could no longer wear her beautiful broaches, Maddy would attach different ones to her purse that she always kept with her. They were gorgeous! What a doll!

You are a doll too! Keep up the great posts!!

Blessings and prayers!

Happy 100th Post, Pearl!!! I disagree, ...you are a very interesting & remarkable individual, and 100 facts would only begin to "tell your story!" But this is a unique post for your 100th post, and you are a unique lady, so this works well too! :) Great pictures of 100 things! I love the M&M's and yellow duckies the best! I so look to 100 more from you...including your magical way with words and great graphics! Let me thank you for always being so kind and encouraging! When I see that you have left a comment or done a post, my spirits are lifted!

~BIG HUGS & lots of PINK confetti!!!, Rhonda
