Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 14th day of May, 2017.

Happy Happy Mother’s Day.

Yesterday after a long raining day the sun came out.

Now this morning it is partially overcast and windy but I can see the sun.

I wrote this on the fly on FB, as I wanted to wish all the Mothers  Happy Mother’s Day

My girl just called and they are coming over.

So happy to see them today.

****************************************************

Happy Happy Mother’s Day “Moms.”
Mothers come in all styles.

They may be yours by birth or they may not.

They may be rich or they may be poor.
They may be light or they may be heavy.

They may be yours, they may be mine.

They may stay at home or work away.
They may cook and clean or maybe hire another.
They may sew or maybe not.
They may bake or not.

But they are always your Mother.
They will always love you.
They will always care about your well-being.
Somedays it may not seem that way but in their hearts,
it is true.

I want to wish each and every Mother a very special day.
I hope that you are as blessed as me.

Just remember to be a Mom does not mean you must give birth to a child …… it is the love, care and attention that you give to another being that makes you a Mother.

Happy Mother’s Day.

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 10th day of February, 2017.

YAY, it is the weekend and the temperatures are warming up.

How perfect.

I spoke to the birthday boy er, I mean man, yesterday and that was nice.

My how time flies ….. still cannot believe my baby boy is 40 years old.

 

So I wonder, how do the milestone birthdays such as 40 of your first born nieces and nephews make you feel?

At first I thought oooh sixty but then I think wow I have a 40 year old nephew.

Actually I have an almost 37 year old daughter, too.

Sometimes I feel old and it has nothing to do with their birthdays.

Just because.

Sometimes your body feels older and some days not.

That is something that will not change – we all age.

Some of us age better than others.

Depends on gene pool and environment.

Perhaps the elixir of eternal life may be found in some future century but not now.

So we do not have to worry about living forever.

Just live your best life now.

If you have a moment where you feel old and truly you are not ….. live it and then carry on.

 

Well almost time to hit the road ….. to the bus.

Have an awesome Friday.

Special Hello to: my Sister, the Mother of my Nephew ….. a great person and I love her very much.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 25th day of August, 2016.

This morning the skies are beginning to clear after a night of rain.

Likely safe to say at this point that we need more sunshine than rain.

Farmers need sunshine to finish their harvest or perhaps to start in some cases.

 

Today marks the 78th Birthday of my Mother.

We passed away 23 years ago.

Hard to believe that it has been that long …..

We miss her and think of her all the time.

She was an unique being and loved everyone and was loved by everyone.

No matter what.

She gave third, fourth and one hundred chances to those who just could not seem to get things right.

Always, always welcomed everyone into her home and fed them.

People always had a way of showing up at mealtime and I guess they knew she would never turn them away.

When someone says they would give the shirt off their back to someone in need – she did.

She had a wit and charm and wicked sense of humour.

No one could tell a joke like she did.

So on this day – I would like to raise a glass to my, our Mother and thank her for all her 55 years on this planet and wish her a Happy Birthday for eternity.

Thank you Mom.

 

Elton is coming to spend the day with Alvin.

So that means his Momma is getting a ride to work, yay.

So thank you to all those folks who take the time to read my words.

I hear that sometimes those words bring joy, sometimes laughter, sometimes a smile and sometimes further thought.

Today is a day to give thanks.

I like to give thanks and to show my gratitude each and everyday.

But sometimes it is good to write it for all the world to see or at least my ever faithful followers.

Thank you.

 

Have a wonderful day.

Maybe today is the day that you see your Mother and thank her for all that you do.

Perhaps you send her thanks if she has passed by thinking of her on this day.

Happy Thursday.

 

Special Hello to: all those Mothers out there …… thank you

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 23rd day of February, 2015.

Today is the 56th Birthday of my “younger” sister.

We have been together now for 56 years.

She has been my sunshine during clouds skies.

She has been my beating heart when mine has stopped.

She has been my thunder and lightning when I need encouragement.

She has been salvation when I needed saving.

She has been my laughter when I need to smile.

Most of all she has been my friend.

I love you my dear sister.

More than words can say.

Even though we live several hundred miles apart now we are joined by our hearts and thoughts.

I think of you every single day.

You are a mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, friend and my sister.

Happy Birthday my Darling.

May you have the best Birthday ever.

CHEERS ….. a few photos of our time together thus far……. in no particular order ……

Good Morning and Welcome to a Wonderful Wednesday the 12th day of February, 2014.

How are you doing this fine morning?

I hope that you are feeling great and are ready to start the best day of your life.

Did you say “thank you” for everything in your life as you arose from bed and got ready to start the day?

Did you eat a good breakfast?

Am I starting to sound like your “Mother?”

Time to “laugh” ……

Both of the above are so important to getting off to a great start.

Being thankful and grateful for being awake and alive.

Being thankful for food in your belly.

Being thankful for clean drinking water.

Being thankful for your loved ones.

Being thankful for your job.

When you are thankful for what you have   –   you are allowing more to come into your life.

So on this mid week day be grateful.

I hope that you have the best day of this New Year.

Happy Wednesday.

Special Hello to: EVERY SOUL ….. YOU ARE IMPORTANT TO US ALL.

Always, Carol and Alvin
