Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, February 12th, 2013.

How are you this fine morning?  I am feeling great.

Even had Mr. Alvin snuggling on my lap as I was writing in my gratitude journal earlier this morning.

He’s so cute.  Gotta love him……  🙂


I was just thinking of something way out of the park this morning.

IT is this – if you were living on a deserted tropical island and could choose three non-food items to take with you what would they be?

So food and fresh water are not an issue.

Would you take a certain articles(s) of clothing, mascara and lipstick for the ladies or perhaps a person.

Remember you can take three items/things/objects.

They can be living and breathing or not.

What would you take?

Would you consider the length of time?

Let’s say that you would be there for three years for certain.

Isn’t this fun, trying to compile the list.

I think that I would start with a longer list of all the things that I absolutely love and then shorten it from there.

So definitely would want a good pair of runners or sandals (not the high heeled ones), perhaps a light waterproof jacket with a hood, sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, (okay I am practical), books, chocolate (because that would not be something you would find on a tropical island out in the middle of nowhere.  I would also love to have Alvin with me because he would miss me too much, and ditto for me.  How can you shortlist family and friends?  I would have to have my girl for sure (my daughter).  Some technology that would play music and batteries.  It is overwhelming to think of what to take.  There are so many things.

My shortlist is:  Alvin (man’s best friend-for company and protection and to snuggle with at night); definitely something proper for my feet and last item sunglasses.

Perhaps I should have made it five items or ten….. 🙂

Well you have it.  A dog, shoes and sunglasses.

Isn’t that what every woman would take?

I do not know ….. I guess a jacket would have been nice …. when it rains.

Well that’s it.

I would love to hear what your three items would be.

Please send me a note.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those folks stranded on a deserted island – it is a metaphor for life ….. let’s take today to get unstuck.  Enjoy your day – remember two things.  BREATHE & SMILE.  You will be fine.


Always, Carol and Alvin

    Definitely my babies, Elton and Penny, and my husband because he would miss them too much. I would love to have you and Alvin too. This is too hard. For non breathing things, it would have to be a book, my ipod and probably a hat or sunscreen.
