Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday, the 12th day of May 2013 and “MOTHER’S DAY”.

It is overcast but very warm this morning in the City of Edmonton, and it is calm.

I am so grateful to have spring, and to be alive and able to enjoy this great moment, this time, this day.

I want to wish every WOMAN and GIRL on the planet a “Happy Mother’s Day.”

Whether you are a Mother by giving birth to a child, having a child through adoption or by marriage.

Whether you are a Mommy to your dolly or your dog or cat or bird.

You are a nurturer, loving and kind.

You were meant to be on this earth and to spread love through your “children.”

It could also be said that some of the opposite sex could also fit into the nurturer group….

I think Mother’s Day applies to anyone whether two-legged or four-legged or other… that gives love to another.

Someone who gives kindness and joy and doesn’t ask for anything in return.

So as I prepare to SKYPE with my wonderful, beautiful, kind, loving and fantastic sister … I wish you all the absolute most fantastic, amazing, awesome day that you have ever experienced.

I hope that you remember you are special …. you bring joy to others.

So on this Mother’s Day if you happen to be alone …. just revel in the glory that you are amazing and the Earth is a better, better place for you being in it.

Have the best day.

I love you …..



Special Hello: to YOU …. thank you Mom……I miss you.  thank you Grandma, I miss you ….. to all those great ones that have gone before us.


Always, Carol and her Alvin …. who does cherish his Momma …..  🙂

Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Thursday, February 9th, 2012.

Wow, how did that happen?

Today marks a special birthday for my nephew Troy …. he is “35.”

OMG, I so remember when he was born.

In some ways it seems like only yesterday, and then in others …. definitely the 35 years.

He has grown from the cutest blonde haired little boy with the strawberry coloured lips (naturally) to a handsome wonderful man.

He was always busy as a child and kept everyone hopping most especially his Mom.

Troy was the first born grandchild in our immediate family.

One time as I was using the calculator … he asked me if he could use the calculator and I asked him “what for” and he replied “to do some calculating” ….. he was only three years old (this was back in 1980).

My daughter Amanda (second grandchild) was born in March of 1980.  He was both her protector and play-mate.

There was one time when I was changing her diaper when she was only a few months old that he asked “how come Manda has a —— and I have a —–  (perhaps it is too early in the morning to be naming body parts) ….. you get the idea. LOL

Also perhaps I am a bit old-fashioned and to write those words on a public forum ….. well, better not.

Anyway, it is almost time for me to put the finishing touches on getting ready for work.

Just wanted to share this special day with you.

I know that some family members will read this blog today and will smile as they remember something from way back when …

Happy Birthday Troy and I wish you perfect health, happiness, great joy, abundance and wealth.

Special Hello:  to Troy and all those you share a birthday on February 9th.


Always, Carol (Anta C) and Alvin …… of course.
