BREAK TIME!!!

Sittin’ down to chillax after cleaning and grocery shopping!!!  GO TEAM!!!  Hhhmmm…what to blog about now???  Think, think…THINK!!! (Pooh-Bear)  😉

I kind of ended that last post too abruptly.  Boy, I felt the urge to get busy with other responsibilities, so “THAT”… is what I did.  I cleaned the kitchen and went shopping at Walmart!!!  Have I mentioned that I LOVE our Walmart Supercenter?  So, so many hysterical memories there…

That motivational presenter of the knife-set…for “SALE”!!!  He was so darn personable!!!  He was AWESOME!!!  “HE”… motivated “ME” to buy a set of those knives… SIMPLY to reward his presentation!!!  HA!!!  I was so proud to reward his effort.  Yep, I do use those knives, as well.  DOUBLE HA, HA!!!  “THAT”… was a WIN/WIN situation!!!  “HE” was a great salesman (for sure)…and… “I”… needed knives! (I think)  🙂

That electric wheel-chair ,”bumper-cart” lady.  I cannot seem to remember the details, but I DO remember… “IT”… WAS HYSTERICAL!!!  I think I may have blogged about that incident towards the end of last year:  Nov. or Dec., 2013.  “BUMPER-CARTS” in Walmart Supercenter, St. Augustine, FL.!!!  I think this incident occurred during all of the Holiday “HUSTLE-AND-BUSTLE!!!  😉

This Walmart Supercenter in St. Augustine, FL is also “home base” for a former patient of ours at MCNRC.  “WILLY, The Pimp” of St. Augutine (I shudder to type that name out, but you can actually google search his name…and “HE” pops right up!!!)  Willy is an elderly, black gentleman who dresses…flamboyantly…excitingly OUTRAGEOUS!!!  ALWAYS!!!

Now, Willy has become a favorite at work, as well.  He comes back to visit.  EVERY Friday afternoon during “Happy Hour” at MCNRC!!!  He ALWAYS brings 2 clumps of bananas, special… FOR NENA.  Yep… “NENA”… MY “GIRL-CRUSH” at work!!!  Many of the therapists in our Rehab. Dept. sure enjoy those Friday afternoon snacks!!!  Thank you WILLY!!!

Yep, “Willy of Walmart,” St. Augustine, FL has become an integral part of “THE MOVEMENT”.  He often informs the entertainers…”It’s time for ‘God Bless America’ ” when I enter the dining room.  2-3 Friday’s ago, Willy came all decked out in American flags!!!  ALL OVER HIS PERSON!!!  HEAD-TO-TOE!!!   I had to run right over to him, and turn to face the crowd while tearing the snaps of my navy blue scrub top open to reveal my American flag shirt underneath!!!  “YEAH!!!”  And the crowd went… “W-I-L-D”!!!  “THAT”… was so very special to me.  “THE MOVEMENT”… occurs weekly at MCNRC.  EVERY Friday at 2 pm-ish, ET.  Staff, patients, visitors, entertainers… all join together to sing “GOD BLESS AMERICA”!!!

WON’T YOU PLEASE JOIN “THE MOVEMENT”?  Simply “BREAK-OUT” in song, singing… “God Bless America”…EVERY Friday afternoon at 2:00pm-ish, ET.  WHEREVER YOU ARE!!!  And encourage others to join along!!!  “THIS”… is very meaningful.  Very touching.  VERY “TEAM-BUILDING”!!!

GO TEAM USA!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

OMG, folks!!!  I ALSO love Michael Jackson’s song, “WE ARE THE WORLD”!!!  DOUBLE OMG, OMG!!!  GO TEAM WORLD!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!! (Yep, tears are filling both eyes.  I HAVE to go purchase that song on I-tunes… WHAT???  “I”-tunes?  What, exactly, does that “I” stand for?  How about changing it to “U”-tunes?  Sorry.  Just kidding!!!)

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!  AND MAY GOD BLESS THE WHOLE-WIDE WORLD!!!  AMEN.

 

KEEPERS OF CASTLES, con’t…

Yep, that previous post regarding “LITTER-BUGS” has prompted this new post regarding the care we provide to our, non-human, “CASTLES”.  No more talk about our bodily and inner-being “castles”.  What about castles, including, but not limited to:  homes, vehicles, property, etc???  ANYTHING… that serves as “home” OR belongs to someone other than yourself.  WOW!!  “THIS”…  is BIG, folks.  “THIS”… includes “E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!!!   Think about it… DOUBLE WOW, WOW!!!  “THIS”… includes EVERYTHING… in the ENTIRE WORLD!!!

The crazy thing???  (Oh yeah, there IS a “CRAZY” side to everything!)  What, EXACTLY, constitutes “CARING”… for anything?  “CARING”… means something different to ALL of us.  IN EVERY SITUATION!!!  “CARING” may require 2 individuals to respond completely different when faced with similar situations.  Both individuals…may “CARE” about…something, but yet that which  each cares about prompts different actions/reactions.  PRETTY DEEP STUFF, huh?   Please think about your own circumstances that may apply.

EXAMPLE:  The family “CASTLE”:  I am currently struggling with the cleanliness of our home.  The struggle, in my mind, is choosing to “blog” and share ideas…OR…to stay focused on cleaning the place that my family calls “HOME”!!!  I try to jot down ideas as they come, so that I may blog about them later, however, I rarely refer back to those ideas.  They don’t seem to have significant meaning when I go back and”consider” them later.

Blogging is important to me.  My family and my home are important to me.  Hhhmmm.  What to do?  (Wow, it is Sunday morning and I am feeling the need to stop blogging and…”CLEAN”.)  More later, folks…

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

Please give the best of yourself for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
