Thought for the day…..

Wow, Wednesday, November 30th, 2011 …..

Happy middle of the week to you all !!!

I have a couple of thoughts on this snowy winter morning here in Edmonton.

Yes, we got some snow over night, and it is still coming down ever so lightly.

Okay, sidetracked once again ….. back to those two thoughts.

First one, I just realized that the title of my blog which is “My New Life @ 51” should perhaps be changed to “My New Life after 51” ….

Definitely would be more appropriate, as I am now 54.

Although the “sign” for “AT” looks better than the word after….

But what the hay ….. perhaps in the new year I will change it.

Second thing, while out walking my dog Alvin last night after work …. I met up with a new friend.

She was walking her two dogs and when we approached each other ….. we exchanged greetings and the conversation kind of went from there.

Such a nice lady/gal/woman/human being.

We chatted about how much stuff we all have …… as they downsized from a house to a half-duplex….

She reminded me of how many people in this city ….. carry their belongings in tow from place to place.

Where the most important things are food and shelter (just a dry warm place to sleep and be).

How blessed am I!  How blessed are we!

Because really how many outfits, fancy pillows, knick knacks do we really need?

I think at this time of year …… and all year round …. we should reflect on what do we need.

And then do something about it…..

It is nice to have stuff but there are so many people that could use a hot meal and a place to sleep….

It would be great if everyone had a job that paid more than enough for them to live comfortably.

It would be great if everyone shared.

It would be great if “greed” was gone from our vocabulary.

Perhaps replaced with “goodness” ….. just a thought.

Well, it is getting close to time to leave for work and I like to spend some time cuddling with Alvin …

So shall sign off for now.

I hope that I have given you pause for thought ….. and then perhaps action.

Seasons Greetings and Blessings to You and Your Family.

Special Hello:  to everyone who woke up this morning to snow on the ground (new or already there)…..

Always, Carol
