Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Monday, November 19th, 2012……

I hope that you had a great weekend.

I had one of those weekends.

There were a few moments …. perhaps minutes where I was less than my stellar, positive self.

I was trying to print something and the word document, computer and printer were just not cooperating.

It had to be something that I was missing but I tried everything and nothing worked.

So after 1 1/2 hours of try after try …. and in between bouts of tears I gave up.

Also I might add that somewhere in there I called my daughter ….

It wasn’t for help but to vent ….. someone just to listen to me.

I am certain that Mr. Alvin must have thought that his Momma had lost her mind but he just looked at me ….. as if to say ….. it will be okay.

But there is nothing like wanting to get something completed only to have it not.

So I went and prepared supper (which was getting late) ….. the stir fry was great.

I did manage to do another aspect of my project while watching television and that went okay.

On Sunday my daughter and “Penny” my grand puppy came for coffee before I left for work at the store.

When we discussed “the night before” …… I told her that I had been thinking that it would have been nice to have had someone to “vent” too.

She said that I should “write it in blog” and I said that I was thinking about having a forum where “folks were are alone” could come and vent, get things off their chest.

Perhaps SKYPE or something.  I am a great listener or so I have been told.

I just know that having someone to listen to me would have helped.

Besides just imagine all those poor dogs and cats out there would are thinking ….  “What do to do, what to do?”

So perhaps that could be something that I could do in my “spare time” ……

Somedays all it takes is a “good ear” ……. right.

I hope that you have someone to listen to you when you are less than your “stellar self” …. we all have those moments.

I must admit that I am blessed that my moments only last a short time …. a few minutes or maybe a couple of hours.

Even though Alvin couldn’t comfort me with words ….. he did give me comfort by being here.

He is and will always be a great companion.

Have a great day……

Remember if someone even a total stranger starts talking about something to you ….. just let them be and you listen.

Everyone needs a “shoulder” or an “ear” once in awhile.

Lend one …. it does not cost you anything but good will.

Take care.

Thanks for listening …. I appreciate it.

Special Hello to:  all those listeners … you rock.


Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S. venting does not have to be necessarily “in anger” …. it can just be a moment of frustration….
