Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday, February 28th, 2013.

Two big events occurring today one being the birthday of one of my nephews and the other the last day of February.

Both crept up on me …..

So Happy Birthday “D” – whatever you are doing … I hope that you have a great day and the year to follow.

Good-bye February you were good to us and we shall miss you but will see you next year.

Isn’t it funny how we feel about events/dates/special times of the year ?

Birthdays, Christmas, Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day, Anniversaries, Mother and Father Days,  and the like.

There are also the historical dates that we mark:  like the Queen’s Birthday in Canada,  and President’s Day in the U.S.

We spend a lot of time and money on the above.

We buy cards and mail them, now we send them on-line.

We buy chocolate, gifts and plan parties.

The whole world’s economy is based largely on these  “dates” ….

I wonder in comparison how much we spend on necessities compared to all of these “special dates.”

Something to think about, I guess.

Well time to get going to work.

Spring is on it’s way and that makes me feel even more great.

Tomorrow is my day off from the office and I work at the store.  YAY.

Have a great day.

Special Hello: to the Birthday Boy ….. Have a great one.


Always, Carol and Alvin
