The young and the rest of us!

imageNow here’s a face that any woman raising children or caring for grandchildren in the 80’s knows well!  I remember all too well getting my three little angels to nap in time to flop exhausted on the couch and for a precious hour to be transported to another world with “The Young and the Restless”

One of my daughter Amber’s favorite memories of my mother, her grandmother, was watching the soap opera on sick or vacation days from school when her Grammy watched her. It was my mother who affectionately referred to the show as ” The Young and the Rest of us!” I always thought that was kinda corny, but now that I have grandchildren of my own, it is a lot funnier😌

And she took her fan dom very seriously! I remember inviting her to go shopping or out to a late lunch to which she would reply ” but I’ll miss my soaps!”

I can’t believe that Victor is still going strong! He has been the chief workaholic, villain, and womanizer since 1980! Married 13 times to 9 different women… Victor had a way of making us feel like we all had our lives totally together!

Speaking of Another World, my husband, Keith reminded me of an awesome song by Christian music artist, Carmen called “Soap song”

You can find it on YouTube, but here are the very catchy lyrics for you to enjoy…

Gone are the days of Leave it to Beaver,
Matt Dillon and his sidekick Festus.
Now we survive on the immoral lives
Of those of the Young and the Restless!!
It’s not that they’re young,
They’re just uh, restless!
Not doing at all like they should!
So they go to the General Hospital,
And The Doctors can’t do ’em no good.
So they keep on with their Search for Tomorrow
Not doing one thing that’s right!
And they all end up in Another World,
About to fall off The Edge of Night!
But that shouldn’t matter,
Cuz after all, As the World Turns
You only have but One Life to Live!
There remains a blessed hope for you
And All your Children,
More Hope than Ryan could ever give!
If we want true contentment, peace in our homes
With an end to marital strife
We must live for Jesus Christ
The Only Guiding Light
Not one, but All The Days of our Lives!

Thanks for taking this stroll down memory lane with me today!

Many blessings all the Days of your Lives!
