Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 26th day of January, 2015.

Last night I watched the Screen Actors Guild Awards or affectionally known as the SAG Awards.

I watched how each category was announced, and each winning actor took to the stage.

They thanked their partners, their managers, their fellow actors.

And I thought …..

How wonderful it would be if we had SAG Awards for the everyday folk.

To all those Moms who put on a smile on their faces when they would rather cry or scream.

To all those retail workers who give great customer service…..

Even when belittled and demeaned; tired after working two or three jobs just to pay the rent.

To all those fast food workers who run like crazy to get “food” to customers in record time.

Who also have to work long hours for minimum wage.

To all those Dads who go to work when they would rather be at home with the kids.

To all those people who everyday put on a happy face just to get through.

To all those who put up with cruel, bitter, angry, disrespectful, unkind human beings with a smile on their face, and maybe even a glow in their hearts.

To everyone who works hard every day of their lives with no award for their performances.

To everyone who volunteers to help both two-legged, four-legged and all beings on this planet.

We celebrate each and everyone.

I always dreamed of being an actor but just living my life I have found is one big performance.

Perhaps I do not always get paid for giving the performance of a lifetime.

But that is life.

I want to take this opportunity to say to everyone in my life … thank you.

You deserve an award.

This is my award to you.

We celebrate you.

Special Hello to: You, we celebrate you today and always.  Thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin


Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 21st day of January, 2014.

WOW, another gorgeous morning ….. thank you.

Last night I watched “The Screen Actors Guild Awards” show from Sunday.

I was so taken by Miss Rita Moreno’s “Life Achievement Award” speech.

The first observation was there is no way she is “82.” ¬†(WOW)

The second observation was maybe “60.”

The third observation she was so full of sass, energy and life.

The fourth observation Miss Rita has definitely been living her dreams.

The fifth observation – I would like what she is having…..

We should all be so blessed to be so alive and vital in our eighties and beyond.

It is a fast reminder that living your dreams with passion keeps you young.

Special Hello to: Congratulations to the SAG Award Winners …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
