Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 10th day of September, 2013.

What a gorgeous month we are having here in Edmonton.

Alvin and I had a beautiful walk last night albeit it was short.

We had just reached the top of the path and started on our way around the lake when Alvin stopped and looked into the distance.

There was no one around that I could see.

He turned around and pulled towards home.

I was thinking that perhaps he wasn’t completely back to his old self and maybe he knew not to push it.

So home we went.

I am so grateful that he is feeling better – he gave me quite the scare on the weekend.

He might be a cute puppy to most people but he is my boy, my roomie, my friend and we share an unique bond.

So when he is sick it is like a part of me suffers with him.

I am so grateful to his “sister” – my daughter for nursing him while I worked Friday night at the store.

She is an amazing person and both Alvin and I are so grateful to have her in our lives.

Sometimes you go along and live your life without much thought about the little things …. like breathing ….. walking and such.

Not really small or little things but they are the things that you do without much thought.

So I just want to pass this thought onto you all ….. always be grateful for all of the little things ….. those things that we have like the ability to see all of the things that you love.

To always be grateful for the ability to walk on your own two feet or in some cases four.

To always be grateful for each breath you take …. for each of the senses that we are so blessed to enjoy.

So happy Tuesday and I am grateful for each breath, for eyes to see, for skin to protect my body, for feet to take me where I want to go and a mind that let’s me imagine the world and dream for today and tomorrow.

Thank you….

Special Hello to: my friends …..

Always, Carol and Alvin


Alvin, you are my sun, moon and stars.

The brightness in my days and the warmth in my nights.

I treasure our moments together.

You are a great friend my little one.

You are one of the rainbows in my life.

I shall love you forever more…..

    Aww, thanks mom, that brought a tear to my eye. I’m so happy my little brother is feeling better, he scared me too. I always feel off when my babies aren’t themselves. Love you
