Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012 ….. another gorgeous morning here in the City of Edmonton.

The sun shone yesterday although it was a bit cool but all in all, a gorgeous autumn day.

This past weekend was so beautiful …….  I so love this time of year.

My roses were still blooming last weekend …. the  most prettiest pink in all of the world.

I took some photos and must download them …..

They remind me of my Grandma Stella ….. delicate but so strong.

When everything else was touched by frost they remain untouched.

Thank you for the roses and also for my Grandma Stella.

She taught me so much,  even though sometimes I was irritated by her (there was a 56 year age difference).

She was 56 when I was born in 1957.

I was 16 years old when I came to live with her (as my grandfather had died in a farming accident);  she was 72.

I am so grateful to her for instilling in me manners, love of dance and music and the arts as well as academia.

She was a teacher who loved music.

Thank you Grandma Stella ….. I shall always be appreciative of our time together and what you taught me.

Do you have someone who left an impression on you?

A positive impression …..

Be grateful for those who helped along the way and for those who may not have been a positive influence but imparted “wisdom” that you learned from, all the same.

Thank you, thank you, thank you …… for all those souls who I have met and learned from along my path.

Today is for you.

Celebrate what you have learned, and give back to others …..

I hope that you have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to:  all those Grandmothers out there who are teaching their grandchildren the important things in life …..  🙂

Always, Carol and Alvin
