Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 10th day of October, 2013.

Well, Mother Nature sure shone down upon our fair city yesterday and especially last night.

It was absolutely gorgeous outside.

Alvin and I took advantage and went for a walk with my daughter and puppies.

This is the weather that we should have until it is officially winter.

Which I believe is near Christmas.

I just cannot get over the awesome beauty of nature at this time of year.

The colours are vibrant and rich.

Even though most of the flowers have gone on to a better place until next year – there are still those who grace us with their amazing beauty.

I still am amazed that I have a beautiful pale pink rose blooming in my back yard.

Can you believe it?  October 10th and I have roses.

In Western Canada, no less.

Anyway it is amazing and awesome and wonderful.

Guess I should have taken a photo to show you all.

Quietly I admire it every evening when Alvin and I are in the back yard.

Something so elegant and you would think fragile but is so strong.

So another wonderful evening from my “hood.”

I am so blessed and so lucky …. what can I say I am a fortunate gal.

So enjoy the little things.

It doesn’t have to be a trip to The Bahamas or a diamond necklace to make you feel special ….

For me, I can find it in my back yard.

My back yard …. my very own back yard.

Something I have wanted my whole life.

I am grateful to have that one single pale pink rose to remind me that I am special.

You are special, too.

I know it.

Have the best day ever.


Special Hello to: you and you and you from me.

Always, Carol and Alvin
