Thought for the day…..

BRRR, WELCOME to Tuesday, January 29th, 2013 …. and it is a COLD morning here in Edmonton.

Luckily it will be short-lived.  Only to last for a couple of days.

The wind has been blowing since last night.


Well I have been thinking lately of all the people that I know that are still here with me and all those “lights” that have long since flickered out.

I have been so blessed to know so many wonderful people.

I have friends that are every age and from every background.

I think that is such a blessing.

I have learned so much over the years from all of these great human beings.

It is funny when you think back to when you were younger.

Do you remember lots about your childhood?

Or is it just clumps and clusters of little things?

It is strange that my earliest memory is of a nightmare, or perhaps that isn’t strange at all.

I remember playing with my sister outside on the farm and smelling that gorgeous scent from the lilac bushes.

I remember when my Dad built me a “dresser” for my room in our new house.

It was great …. it had drawers on one end and shelves on the other …. a modern day wall unit..

I remember going to a nearby lake to celebrate family birthdays ….we had so many in August that we celebrated them altogether ….. with cousins, Aunts and Uncles.

It was always with family or so I recall.

We roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.

I remember going to Texas with my family for a winter when I was about 10-11.

We visited Padre Island … on the gulf …. the water ….. ooooooooooooooh

It was glorious…..except for the bugs who were larger than life.

We were not used to that …..

But the people were amazing and we had the best neighbours.

I still have great neighbours and always have …… lucky me.

Well here we are … time to go to work.

I hope that you take the time to go down memory lane.

Even if it is for a little while ….. it is good to remember.

Thank you for indulging me.

Special Hello: OMG, thank you to those people who just subscribed to my blog.  You are making my dream come true.  Thank you to everyone who reads my blog.  I am working towards one million … I will get there someday.

Have a great day.

Always, Carol and Alvin
