Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday, the 5th day of July, 2013.

Another bright sunny gorgeous morning here in Edmonton.

I think this warrants a reminder to us all.


Last night one of my friends came over for coffee and a visit.

She, “G” always makes me laugh, and laugh we did.

Throughout her visit, I started feeling better and better.

Last night I slept through the night.  First night in a week.

Now I know that the antibiotics have kicked in and they are doing what they are supposed to do to alleviate the infection from my tooth.

But good old fashioned laughter is one of the best medicines.

I love my friend ….. she counsels me well and always is true to our friendship.

I think the best thing about my friend is that she makes me laugh …. not just a giggle or fake little laugh but laughter that comes from the tips of my toes and travels all through my being.

Thank goodness for friends.

I think today and everyday should be friend day.

Never never take them for granted.

I am so blessed to have a great many friends.

My daughter is my best friend.  Now I know she is family but we are best buds.

We enjoy the same things and have the same mindset (only difference is she is not technology challenged, I am).

I have friends in Saskatchewan and in Alberta, across the ocean and across the street.

How lucky am I.

I do know it, and even though having no voice followed by an infected tooth filling me with pain and misery; I have found my way back.

I am truly grateful.

Now today I am hosting a garage sale and can enjoy it.

There will be lots of people and they will buy our treasures and we will be giving lots of things away as well.

It is a great day.

So on this Friday …. enjoy your friends and be grateful.

I sure am.

Special Hello: to all the friends in the world …. that means everyone on the planet.  We are all friends to someone…….most importantly to ourselves.


Always, Carol and Alvin
