January 29, 2013 a day to celebrate


Let the celebrations begin… It’s Dot/Mom/Cob’s birthday! Let’s hear it for her outfit, her hair, her guitar… and no she can’t play it, not that you would want to hear it, but oh can she hold on to it!
Let’s hear it for her today as she celebrates her day by hitting the streets early this morning on her birthday to head out to the YMCA and hit the pool for her swimming lesson and take to the waters.. and was able to swim the length of that pool to the applause of her peers and her coach/teacher there! With no funny faces, nor fear she took to the water and did her thing, maybe this year she will swim through her fear and emerge the swimmer she has always hoped to be. It’s her birthday!
After drying off and receiving those hugs and words of encouragement she was then off to the Nursing Home to volunteer; where she was as I sang out a rusty rendition of “I hear it’s your Birthday”, and she of course had to throw it on speaker for residents to hear it… all wanting to then tell her stories of their relatives and their singing abilities as I sat and waited on hold for a bit. Oh well, it’s her birthday … thankfully you don’t pay for those long distance calls anymore (or do you)… Almost time for her to call bingo there; as they were rounding up the residents, and oh they love to play Bingo! Since it’s her birthday she will probably sweeten the pot and throw in a $5.00 high stakes pot for the lucky winner today! Oh yes, today is the birthin day of the Dot/MOM/Cob, and yes I am blessed beyond measure as she stomps into a new and wonderful surprised filled day and year doing her thing and running the roads.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM, thank you for all that you are to so many!

 From trying on hats at Disney, to walking on the river or swimming in Lake Tarpon and then swearing the gators will use her for bait, she is filled with spirit, with life and with life. It’s her day to be celebrated and to do as Granny would tell you, “as she pleases” which  she does quite well!

It is also the birthday of Landon Korabek; the son of Susan and Greg Korabek, gone too soon. A day that he is now remembered, always cherished and a day that is to also be celebrated. A day that they gave birth to a son, a day that they shared so many precious memories and bestowed love and happiness with and set a foundation for, provided love within walls of a home with. He was one gifted with a guitar, a sense or humor, and a boy who loved to run on little boards with 4 wheels to the delight and amazement of others.  He zoomed, he took risks and loved the thrill of it all. His fingers flew on the frets of a guitar and music was in his very soul. He had a wicked sense of humor, mixed with the boyness of youth in sarcasm that we all have seen in every youth since the beginning of time, some of course inherited from his “wicked cool parents” of course … He was a trickster, a fun loving kid, and this day is the anniversary of the day of his birth now celebrated in the next place as he watches his brother, his parents, and those who love him make sense of his sudden and needless death.  From trauma they are healing through advocacy, through action, through powerful sounds of music that will help others. From speaking out and from continual action steps to benefit others with scholarships for music, from advocacy with N.O.P.E with monies raised at the annual Landon Korabek One Love JamFest held here in Palm Harbor. Let the music heal and those who come enhance community as parents and a brother, families and loved ones continue to heal their pain of loss and keep Landon alive in hearts while his death stands for something greater than his short life on earth. Happy Birthday Landon; May you dance on the clouds today playing your songs for the angels and our Creator as you watch the miracle of your parents at work here on your behalf and as they heal.

Yes, you can tell the way Landon is holding that guitar vs the way Mom/Dot/Cob was holding hers… they may share a birthday today, they both may have had a guitar; but. Well I don’t need to go further with that train do I? haha

So then, happy Birthday to all who share this day, both here and in the Next Place, celebrate, dance, dance dance; this is YOUR day.

Sending you gigggles and kisses from here to there on your special day and for those who gave you birth along with those who are taking a moment to wish you a Happy Happy day.

  5. Happy Birthday to me. A lovely way to start the day with all of the phone calls from near and far. Angie and the boys were the first callers singing the song. My dear Texas friend was the next. My dearest daughter was next and it was at the time I was rounding up residents for Bingo. I had to let them listen to some of the conversation I was having with Dr.SES. Other staff coming by and then it was on. Then WVA. called my dear friend Mike. He said to be sure and watch for a box to arrive. You better believe I have been watching. Another friend from WVA. and so it went that way all day. Some locals also. Next a phone call saying they had a package and low and behold they arrived with of all things some of the most beautiful strawberries and apples dipped in some wonderful chocolate. What a treat. By the way I bribed the residents with a generous amount of money but they had to sing Happy Bday to me. It was wonderful. My friend from the Mexico border called and invited me to visit. The family took me to Outback steak house and you know what I had, me and Kamryn had that juicy, hot ribeye. Mmm good. Of course the surprise was a great ice cream with hot choc. syrup and of course whippped cream which Kamryn gobbled up real quick. We did have a spoon fight to see who got the most and I think it was a tie. This is the funniest happening on me today. A staff member at the Nursing home walked behind me to the salad bar and I did not know she was behind me. She shouted in my ear Happy Bday. It scared me so bad I had to cross my legs and sit down, she was laughing so hard her false teeth fell out. Picture that scene. It was hysterical. I came home and ate a choc. strawberry, I think I am on a sugar trip from the looks of this comment. I loved the video it was beautiful. Thanks to you and all of the family and especially Dr.SES and DLB. My wish is each of you to have a wonderful day as I have had today. Getting serious tomorrow is back to the YMCA and another swimming lesson. Training for the olympics. Blessings to all and to all a good night.
