"I Just Called To Say I Love You"

Remember that song? Probably not, most of you are too young. I am totally overwhelmed by all the very loving and kind remarks about my makeover. You are all so kind and thoughtful. I am still trying to get use to the new me, and I so appreciate all of your gracious comments. Bloggers have to be the most uplifting people in the whole world. Everyone is always so ready to encourage and applaud anything that a fellow blogger does no matter how great or small. I am so grateful to have found such a loving community of women that encourage and uplift every age and stage of life, and are always there to root everyone on. Thank you all for being so kind and always rooting me on no matter what I do. You make my day every day.

Thanks, I so appreciate you all.


  1. Marty, We should be thanking you! I can't tell you how many wonderful hours you have entertained me with your blog. You are always one of the first to leave a comment and so supportive. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness. Take care dear friend.
    Hugs, Sherry

  2. Hi Marty!

    Your mom was a wise woman ...

  3. I was so busy yesterday that I missed your blog post. You have such a warm and friendly face. I could never miss you if I saw you on the street. Thank you for hosting Table Top Tuesday each week. I always look forward to your little changes that inspire all of us to do the same. By the way ~ who did you inherit those darling dimples from? Your Mom or your Dad?

    Lots of love,
    Susan and Bentley

  4. I agree that we should be thanking you. I love your posts and I can always count on a sweet comment from you regularly. I also love your Tuesday party and wouldnt miss it. So you also uplift us, sometimes more than you realize. If Im having a bad Monday...I can put together a little something and link to your TT party and browse all the other wonderful displays. I love it...thank you Marty!

  5. Good for you!! And those were some wise words of wisdom for us all to think about. Giving ourselves a "redo" can be very uplifting and energizing. Cute hairdo!! Sweet lady!!

  19. I love your make-over, you are such an inspiration to me, in so many ways.
    I remember the song well and you reminded me of a wonderful memory I have of my parents.
    When that song was popular my dad called home from work, a rareity unless there was a problem, when mom answered he sang that sone to her. She thought he was nuts at the time but I know she tucked it away in her heart to pull out when times got tough.
    Thanks for the memorey you sweet thing.

  20. Marty, you were fabulous & gorgeous before ... you still are ... & oh, yes! I do remember that song. Chuckle!
    Have a great eve ~
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  21. Oh Marty,
    I just love your new makeover, you look awesome, seriously, I would never ever guess you to be 71 yrs. old. You got it going on girl!!

    I bet you feel like a million bucks.
    Change is strange at first but once you get used to it - it can be wonderful!!

    Well, you look wonderful and you should feel fabulous, I am still amazed that you are 71, keep up the good work!!
    blessings, Nellie
