Hi there you wonderful people of Cornwall and the S.D. & G. area who read ~The Seeker~ each and every week. I am so happy that SPRING is FINALLY HERE!!! Mother Nature sure is fooling around with the temperatures and weather conditions to make us, fellow humans a little bit crazy this year. One day we are wearing Winter coats, hats, scarves and mitts, and then the next day, Spring jackets or pull over sweaters and rubber boots. Please make up your mind Mother Nature!!! Enough of the cold temperatures, the snow and the freezing rain!!! Aren’t you HAPPY that Spring is BACK for yet another year?!?!? The leaves on the trees and bushes are budding, the flowers in the gardens are beginning to bloom, and the birds and the bees, and yes, even the fleas have returned for another season of SPRING!!! WELCOME BACK!!!
I had a most wonderful time with many of my family members over
the long Easter weekend. My youngest son, Marcus and his girlfriend, Kelsey came from Ottawa. Luke and his wife, Tonya and their two little ones, Odin & Ruby, came from Chesterville, and Melinda was the hostess with the mostess putting on the “Easter Feast” for yet another year. I was so proud to be at the head of the table looking over the three children and the six grandchildren that I am responsible for bringing into this world of ours. There were fourteen of us chatting, eating, and laughing together over a delicious turkey dinner that was fit for Royalty. I am treated and I feel like a Queen when I am with my family which makes me beam with Pride and Joy. My family is so important to me and when I have so many of them together at one time it fills the cracks and crevices in my heart that were cracked and scarred for many long years when I didn’t have them in my life due to circumstances out of my control. Now, I am in Control of my own life!!! There are so many things that have been put back into place to make this beaming smile upon my face. Do make and take the time to be with your family … We NEVER KNOW when it will be our or their time to GO… Please make Your Family A PRIORITY!!! Write to them… Phone.. Email.. or Text them… Most Importantly… VISIT them when you can and as often as you possibly can!!! Don’t leave it too long because it may be too late…
TOMORROW May Never Come… So DO What You Have To DO, TODAY!!!
Tip of the Week: Before you do ANYthing in YOUR LIFE…ALWAYS T.H.I.N.K.!!! T: Is it TRUE? H: Is it HELPFUL? I: Is it INSPIRING? N: Is it NECESSARY? K: Is it KIND??? This will certainly be ever so HELPFUL in your everyday lives. Making for a much Happier and Joy-filled LIFE!!!
John and I have been invited to a sweet couple of friends that we have gotten to know and love over the many years that we have both lived here in Cornwall. They are celebrating their upcoming nuptials by having a Bachelor/Bachelorette Party at ~La Maison~ with the band ~The Boys~ playing live music. This couple is very well known and liked by many Cornwallites and are the organizers of the upcoming POP Event ~CAPE~. They are the one and only>>> Randy Sauve & >>> Carol Grant!!! John and I look forward to helping them celebrate with their family and other awesome friends this Saturday night before their wedding day on April 23rd at the ~Benson Centre~!!! I know that I am rather excited about their upcoming marriage… I wonder if they are??? Now, What to wear? What to wear for a night filled with live music and dancing??? Oh Yes, It is Randy’s birthday that night as well. Happy Birthday My Dear Friend.
The happiest people I have met throughout my 55 plus years are people who have experienced sadness and great sorrow and who have climbed their way out of their sad demise… (like I did!) HAPPINESS of this kind is hard to MIMIC in any other way. When I feel this certain happiness, the trees, the flowers, the birds and even the buzzing bees can make me happy. The blowing winds, the puffy clouds and even the thorny, rosebud branches make me happy these days. They can even bring tears to my eyes as to the wonder of their beauty and existance….I am no longer blind to the Beauty of Life… I Am “WIDE AWAKE”… Ready, Willing and Quite Able to take on another day in the Life of Marlene. I hope that you, too, can see and experience the beauty and the little miracles that lies around us… All We Have To Do IS OPEN OUR EYES & HEARTS TO SEE!!!
Item of the Week: The item I want to share with you this week is a pair of black, snakeskin-printed, knee-high boots that I bought off line from a young mother here in Cornwall. I actually got two pairs of cool boots from the same lady that told me that she wasn’t able to wear these kinds of high heels any longer, for just $30.00!!! WHAT A STEAL OF A DEAL!!! I told her that I would wear her boots proudly…and I Do!!! Every chance I can!!!
Until Next Week: Just REMEMBER this…One day we will Wake Up and there won’t be anymore TIME to DO the things that we have always Wanted to DO!!! SO… DO IT NOW, DO IT TODAY!!!
