Thought for the day……..

Wow, what a beautiful August morning.  The sky is such a pretty blue and the sun is coming up on the horizon.

My life is great.  I had the best birthday yesterday.  Thank you to all my family & friends who are my family, too.

You know you are blessed and lucky when:

…. your seven year old friend calls from Quebec to wish you a Happy Birthday before you leave for work in the morning (that’s early)

…..your friends and family send you best wishes via phone, e-mail, the mail and Facebook

…..your daughter and son-in-law prepare you a yummy supper followed by a super delicious chocolate birthday cake

…..your neighbours decorate your front porch with balloons, streamers and a birthday banner and birthday wishes  written in coloured chalk down the front sidewalk and gifts inside the house

I am so incredibly blessed.

…..the best gift of all was that my dog Alvin was at the door when I arrived home to greet me ….. with kisses and lots of love.

I always think that it is so cute.  Those first 20 seconds after I unlock the front door,  he rushes to greet me, wagging his little tail, he is so excited he knows he has to pee, he wants to give me love and attention

but he is also hungry, he stops between the back door at the pantry for just a second.  He’s back and forth for those seconds …… I guess I would be confused as well (or perhaps I am a bit) LOL.

Thought for this day is:  be grateful for the blessings in your life each and everyday.  There is always something to be thankful for ….. clean water to drink, food in the fridge, family, your dog or cat, friends, the air that you breathe, the fact that you can breathe everyday is always super good.

Have a great Wednesday everyone.

Always, Carol
