Hi there to all of you wonderful people reading ~The Seeker~ this week. Tis Cornwall and the S. D. & G. area’s most positive, “REAL PAPER” that you can actually hold on to and read. Mother Nature is finally getting around to the Spring weather that we like and have been waiting so long for. The days are getting longer, the buds on the trees are buddin’ and the multitude of flowers are showing off their pretty, colourful faces for all to see and admire.
Tip of the Week: The Seven Wonders of the World:
1. To See.
2. To Hear.
3. To Touch.
4. To Taste.
5. To Feel.
6. To Laugh.
7. And To Love.
These are the seven things that make up a wonder-filled life. May you realize that “Material things” do not mean a thing, if you don’t have these seven wonders in your life.
Last Thursday I had a most wonderful time spending it with my eldest daughter, Melinda and her family celebrating her 36th birthday. She decided she wanted to go to a Chinese buffet in Ottawa called ~The Mandarin~. What an Experience!!! One feels like they are Royalty as the friendly greeters meet you when you first enter their restaurant. They are so friendly and very helpful as they show you to your table where you are given ~HOT~ cloths to wash away your day. Their food (Chinese & Canadian) is beautifully presented and it is so fresh and tasty to eat. Servers are always at your disposal and are taking away dirty dishes and filling up your water glasses whilst you are eating. After having and finishing your main meal there is a delightful section of many kinds of desserts to choose from. IT’S SO HARD BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO MANY CHOICES!!! After your meal is all done they bring you some more ~HOT~ cloths. If, it happens to be your birthday … You (the Birthday Girl/Boy) get to EAT your meal for FREE and get a Photo taken, too. But you must follow their online rules for this to all happen. Melinda (and the rest of us) were very happy and very full after this Superb Birthday Feast!!! I only wish that a ~Mandarin Restaurant~ would come to Cornwall. I might just have to have a wee chat with one of the many owners. Now, I’m feeling hungry just writing about writing about this place. Where’s my fortune cookie???
Item of the Week: This week I have chosen a pair of sensational shoesies that I purchased from ~Value Village~ for ONLY $7.50!!! (There was a 50 % Sale on … So I took advantage of that and got some other pretty Spring and Summer items as well.) I chose a pair of leopard print, 6-inch heels that even have some *Glitter* added to them. I do so love animal prints and I look forward to showing off these leopard beautays!!! Now, all I have to do is see what is in my wardrobe to match!!!
Here is a lovely poem for Mother’s Day. ~A Mother’s Love Is Forever~, We have been with you before your very birth. We will always stand by your sides, as long as we are here on this earth. A Mother’s love is special, a never-ending gift. A love that is always there, if you ever need a lift. We will think of you often, never missing a single day. Our love is forever, and will always be sent your way. You are never far from the caring thoughts in our heart. No matter how ever many miles that will try to keep us apart. A Mother’s love, is your gift, the gift we’ll always give to you. As we watch our lives go by, no
matter what you may say or ever do. Happy Mother’s Day To All Of The Beautiful & Loving Mothers All Around The World.
I’ve carried seven children within my body. I’ve slept with all of my babies on my chest. I’ve kissed their bobos and mended their broken hearts. I’ve been thrown up on, peed on and I’ve spent many sleepless night in a rocking chair or pacing the floor when they were sick. But you know I wouldn’t have it any other way. My body isn’t magazine perfect, but, when I look into the eyes of my four precious daughters and three handsome sons, there is NO GREATER HONOR OR BLESSING THEN BEING A MOTHER!!! I have made mistakes over the many years, sometimes more than I’d like to admit to, but, I will always be there for you my dear children. To Hear You, to Cheer you on, to Laugh or even to Cry with You, to Protect you with my Life, if I had to. Even sometimes having to tell you things that you don’t or didn’t really want to hear. I will love all of you for Eternity and beyond with all of my heart. NO ONE WILL EVER LOVE YOU MORE THAN I DO. After all, I Am Your Mother!!! Do you realize that “MOM” upside down spells “WOW”??? In your child’s language it means…W(weird) O (old) W (woman) M (made) O (out of) M (money.) HAPPY *MOTHER’S DAY* TO ALL OF THE LOVING MOTHERS THE WHOLE WORLD ROUND!!!
Until Next Week: KINDNESS makes you the most beautiful person in the world … No matter what you look like. Please Be KIND To All Mankind… Especially To The Unkind… They Need it the Most!!! Just Sayin’.
