When I heard the Last Guiding Light was coming up, I felt sad immediately. I watched that show with my grandmother, then my mother , then my daughter watched it in the summers when she was at her grandmothers. It is a tradition in my mind. So here I sit watching it in my office, with my mute button on and my cell phone on silent, watching the final hour. I really haven't watched it much the last few years but I knew I could and when I turned it on I also knew I would see Reva and Josh and all the crazy moments and know my life was a piece of cake compared to theirs.
A friend of mine told me a funny story; her father was a minister and asked who they should pray for this week. One of the little ladies piped up, Bob Hughes is in the hospital and needs all of our prayers. So soap operas are a part of our life in different ways.
You are probably asking why a media blog is talking about a show, will as soon as it was announced , I purchased commercials for three of my clients in the last two days of the Guiding Light. High profile, well watched , high female based, perfect for Dr Theresa Ross (Bubbles Jones) for opening up a new clinic for women, perfect for Vantage and perfect for S&J for their upcoming special event.
I am going to miss these characters, that are such a part of my life in many ways.
Signing off so I can focus on the last few minutes. Just saw Josh drive off from Riva says he would be back in a year. Maybe they are planning a special, if they do I will be watching and also buying commercials for my clients.
