Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Thursday, February 9th, 2012.

Wow, how did that happen?

Today marks a special birthday for my nephew Troy …. he is “35.”

OMG, I so remember when he was born.

In some ways it seems like only yesterday, and then in others …. definitely the 35 years.

He has grown from the cutest blonde haired little boy with the strawberry coloured lips (naturally) to a handsome wonderful man.

He was always busy as a child and kept everyone hopping most especially his Mom.

Troy was the first born grandchild in our immediate family.

One time as I was using the calculator … he asked me if he could use the calculator and I asked him “what for” and he replied “to do some calculating” ….. he was only three years old (this was back in 1980).

My daughter Amanda (second grandchild) was born in March of 1980.  He was both her protector and play-mate.

There was one time when I was changing her diaper when she was only a few months old that he asked “how come Manda has a —— and I have a —–  (perhaps it is too early in the morning to be naming body parts) ….. you get the idea. LOL

Also perhaps I am a bit old-fashioned and to write those words on a public forum ….. well, better not.

Anyway, it is almost time for me to put the finishing touches on getting ready for work.

Just wanted to share this special day with you.

I know that some family members will read this blog today and will smile as they remember something from way back when …

Happy Birthday Troy and I wish you perfect health, happiness, great joy, abundance and wealth.

Special Hello:  to Troy and all those you share a birthday on February 9th.


Always, Carol (Anta C) and Alvin …… of course.
