Thought for the day…..

Good Wednesday Morning ….. welcome to June 20th, 2012.

Wow, Wednesday already …… really ….. okay, who turned the “time dial” to EXTRA SPIN?

Lately I have noticed that both young and older people, like me all are having the same thought and that is:  “time is flying by.”

So it isn’t just a over 40 or 50 thing.

It is happening to everyone.

During a visit between me and two friends (Mom & Daughter) in my neighbourhood last night (while Alvin and I were out walking)…. the young woman said “it is because we are all so busy.”

I was both relieved and saddened by this statement.

Also the gals brought up that even though they have relatives at a short drive ….  there does not seem to be enough time to see everyone on a regular basis.

What has happened to us?

I know that I have been in Edmonton for three years, and now have my two brothers at about a two hour drive  in different directions and guess what, I have not been able to make the trip to see them.

I know that I do not have a car but that really is no excuse.

I have spoke to them but not regularly.  They are always in my thoughts and prayers, and I would love to have them in physical form, to reach out and touch them.

So often, actually more often than not these days we are working long hours, busy doing house and yard work when we are not working, perhaps running children to different things, and we do not visit our friends and loved ones as much as we should or once did.

I remember as a child getting together on a regular basis with family and friends.  We had several cousins that lived in our area so distance was not an issue.

Anyway, I would love to see my family and friends more often ….. the ones at a distant, and the ones close by.

I am however so grateful for SKYPE and all of the other technology that makes it possible to see people as though you were nearby.

I SKYPE with my sister from Regina every Saturday morning and I love it.

Well it is getting close to leave for work time so I had better sign off.

Have a great day.

Enjoy your family and friends.

I hope that you get to visit them on a regular basis ….

Special Hello: to all my dear ones near and far … I love you so much…… family and friends….. miss you, too.

Have a great, great day.

Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin
