This past week has left many mourning the losses of television pitchman and sidekick to the late Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon, actress Farrah Fawcett and pop icon Michael Jackson. I've heard tributes and memorials to all three, which were in order, but I was really annoyed by people complaining about who should be honored the most. At work on Friday, I listened to a new co-worker complain to a customer about how Michael Jackson was being talked about "too much" and more than Farrah and even Ed. She was mostly concerned about how he was overshadowing Farrah. In my opinion, that's like comparing Elvis and Anna Nicole Smith, but that's just me. There's always going to be someone more popular than someone else, but why should there be comparisons about posthumous remembrances anyway? They all held different titles and added contributions to society in totally separate ways. I'm not one to get misty eyed over people that I never knew, but I will miss seeing them, being that I grew up watching all three. I enjoyed Ed McMahon on the Tonight Show, especially when he assisted the amazing Carmac! They were quite funny together. I'll miss Farrah Fawcett from her role on Charlie's Angels, which was one of my favorite shows. Yes, I tried to feather my hair like her! Didn't work too well because I put too much curl in it, but I tried! lol Although I wasn't that big of a fan of Michael Jackson as a person (my loyalty was to his little brother Randy, who I thought was much cuter!), I did love his music. Yes, I knew the moves to Thriller, but danced in the den in the back of the house, when Momma and Daddy weren't awake! Hee Hee! My heart goes out to all of the children of each one, young and older, who have lost a parent and to the other family members as well. Also, as I was typing this, I just learned of the death of TV salesman, Billy Mays. He sold me on OxyClean, Kaboom and Orange Glo cleaners. I always enjoyed his excitement about the products he pitched. God blessed each one to touch lots of lives in many ways and I pray that each one knew Him as their personal saviour.
I'm a blessed mom with a sweet husband and six beautiful children. I love the Lord and want to do all that I can to please Him! I love going to church and participating in church-related activities. I love doing things for my family and just hanging out with them. I love all things girly, like purses, clothes, shoes, jewelry and makeup! I sell Avon and love watching women light up with the products they purchase. I love my life and thank God for it! I hope that this blog can be a blessing to others as others have been to me!
