Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday, the 19th day of December, 2013

WOW, it is getting close.

I am excited.

Just finishing up last minute details and I think that I am pretty much ready for the big day.

REMINDER: any prep work you can do regarding the food …. DO IT.

Day before chop veggies and place in zip lock bags and into the fridge.

Consult that LIST ….. you do not want to forget anyone or anything.

Something else I always do and it sure helps.

As you wrap all of the gifts ….. write them down in a notebook.

I list each person’s name and beside it, I write the gifts that I have for them.

This way I ensure that no one gets ten times more than the other and also that no one is forgotten.

Even before I wrap …. usually I carry a small notebook in my purse and as I come across a gift for someone …. it gets entered.

So on this blessed Thursday and I say that because truly I am blessed.

I have so much and am so very grateful.

Please remember to leave your dogs and cats in the house if it is cold.

They deserve to be warm….

Have a great Thursday.

P.S. if you have a chance send a card and personally written note to someone special.  Everyone loves to receive a card in the mail.  Little kids and older ones, too.  I SURE DO.

Thank you.

Special Hello to: my friends who have remained my friends through all these years….. I love you, all.

Always, Carol and Alvin
