Thought for the day…..

Good Wonderful Wednesday morning and today is April 18th, 2012…..

Just in case you had lost track.

Can you believe it?

I know that I say that on a regular basis but each day when I see where it falls on the calendar, I am so surprised.

Because it seems like only yesterday it was April 1st, 2009 and I was just settling into my new home …. my first house, and I was all by myself with three bathrooms.

I had left the city that I had called home for over thirty years, and was moving hundreds of miles away from that life …. to start anew, and be near my darling daughter and her family.

Going from an apartment which was all on one floor with a shared laundry room to a three floor (including the basement) house with those “three bathrooms” was OUT OF THIS WORLD.

To be over “50” and buying your first home was incredible ….. it was one of my biggest dreams realized, and I am forever grateful.

Today the house seems a bit more full, and all of the boxes are unpacked ….. I now have my Alvin, who is great company.  So no more “alone” nights unless he goes for a sleepover at his sister’s house.

But I am okay with that …. once in awhile.  🙂

It is great having my own yard to fiddle with and have as many flowers as I want …. mowing the lawn ….. having a garage sale now and again (time for one this summer)…

I love my life…..

Sometimes you never know when one of those “near impossible” feeling dreams comes true / is realized ……

So from a forever dreamer of things and feelings to you … have the best day and I hope that all of your dreams come true.

Special Hello to: all those dreamers …. it will happen ….. just keep dreaming and dream BIG.


Always, Carol and Alvin
