Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 13th day of January, 2015.

Today is the 50th Birthday of my baby, my little brother.

He was born January 13th, 1965.

I cannot believe that he is 50.

He was born a few months before my 8th Birthday.

He was a good natured, shy little guy.

He has grown up to be a good natured, not so shy guy.

Although I would say that he is not as much an extrovert as me.

But nonetheless he is a wonderful caring, loving human being.

He is a brother, father, grandfather, friend, Uncle, cousin and human being.

I want to wish him the Best Birthday ever.

May his day be filled with great joy and laughter and love, of course.

Happy Birthday “T” …..

 

On the family front, I spoke to the brother of my nephew that “WAS” in the coma and I am happy to report that he is “awake” ….

He does not communicate verbally but he does communicate.

Most especially with his brother.

 

So this is a great day …..

I wish you all a great day.

Special Hello to: all my family …… “Birthday Boy” and “Getting Better Boy.”

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 17th day of December, 2014.

7 sleeps until Christmas Eve …….

Last night I was able to have a quick visit with my nephew on the way home from work.

His physical injuries are healed, and he is starting to acknowledge visitors not verbally.

He turns his head to the sounds and looks in your direction.

I like to think that he knows us.

He had a short beard when I saw him last night and he so reminded me of my brother who passed away near six years ago.

 

Today is our “department” lunch at work followed by a gift exchange.

Should be fun.

Tonight to the store I go.

So nice to see my co-workers …..

Will be interesting to see if the mall is super busy.

You never know what a Wednesday will bring.

 

Well on this mid week day I am grateful to be alive.

I am grateful to have my own home.

I am grateful to be surrounded by people who love and respect me.

I am grateful to have this amazing blog and to all those who take the time to read my words.

I am so grateful for my kids and grand-puppies to be living here with me and Alvin.

I am so grateful that I adopted me Alvin those almost five years ago.

He has been another bright light in my life.

I am grateful to be so blessed.

 

On that note, it is time to finish getting ready for work at the office.

I hope that you have a great day.

Special Hello to: my fellow bloggers – Happy Holidays to you.

Always, Carol and Alvin
