Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, December 11th, 2013.

How are you today?

I am doing great …. today I work both jobs and tomorrow is my day off.

I love my jobs but I love, love, love being at home with my Alvin.

Being at home is something that I always dreamed of doing ….

When I was a little girl I always wanted to be a Mom of four children and I spent countless hours picking out names.

I would have lists of names in my dresser.  First name and middle name sounding just right was very important to me.

As I grew older, I found out that my paternal grandmother had actually named me …. fancy that and considering I was the first born.

It is a good story … but perhaps for another time.

I imagined a house with running water and indoor plumbing with a nice fence (yes, white) around the front yard which was covered in flowers.

I would have a huge wonderful garden and a dog and maybe a cat.  (it would be on a farm as that is what I knew)

Yes, there would be a husband (although I did not give that much thought except that I had met a young man, he didn’t live too close by) whom I carried a crush on for most of my young years).

Also I had wanted to be a nurse, I loved helping people.

I always thought that I would be married, have lots of children and later travel.

So here I am … none of the above except I have the best daughter on the planet, my dog Alvin, I do have a son-in-law and grand-puppies, I have my own house and I have two jobs.

I guess things have worked out pretty good.

I have always said that when the time is right for me … Mr. Right will walk into my life and stay forever.

I guess I am not quite ready……

Anyway, if you think back as to what you dreamt of becoming when you were a child … I would think for most of us those dreams have changed.

That is not a bad thing for sure…… it just shows that we have options and an imagination…

Which are good things.

I think we change our dream constantly …. I know that I do.

The basic ones remain the same but the details change dramatically.

So on this Friday …. I shall dream of what is to come …. I have to visualize what I want and it will come.

Sometimes it is not exactly the same but close enough.

Have a great day and weekend my friends…….

Special Hello to: all those dreamers …. keep on dreaming.


Always, Carol and Alvin
