This week I am Extremely Thankful to my Friend Sandee of Comedy plus. I had posted about breaking my favorite coffee mug that was a treasured gift from my late Celestine. She gave me this mug when I passed the State of Ohio’s Real-Estate exam and became a realtor. A dream I had had for some time.
Join us every Monday for Awww…Mondays. Post a picture that makes you say Awww…and that’s it.

About Dreams, we all dream at night and if it was a really good dream, you might remember it. Chasing one’s dreams can be Just as important. after being a Corrections Officer for 15 years and taking a disability retirement. I was told I can still work the exception was that I could never have a job working any kind of security again. So, I got a job at Sears as a parts clerk. That job lasted 5 years. So in 2000 I than decided that I was going to try to chase my dream as a real-estate agent, my Celestine did not think I could pass the test. the day of the test I finished it before my time limit and walked out she asked if I needed a breathing treatment, I said No I just finished the test. about 15 minutes later I was informed that I did in fact passed the test I scored 87 on the test passing was 75.
Celestine asked if we could stop at Boarders bookstore which was near the testing site, I said yes, I went and had a cup of coffee she disappeared I presumed she was looking for a certain book she was not what she was doing was buying me a gift.
that gift was this Dreams Mug.
in 2021 that mug slipped out of my hand and broke, and yes, I cried over that breaking. Right after that my cousin Keith called, he asked what’s the matter I told him I just broke my favorite mug. He said I can fix it, come over with it and he was able to glue it back together. so now it sits on my computer cabinet next to my monitor holding my pens pencils and assorted stuff. i than decided i needed a new Dreams Mug and found this one, that I use to drink my coffee.
