Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 10th day of November, 2013.

The snow is coming down softly and Alvin is laying outside our bedroom door waiting for my nephew to wake up.

My nephew stopped by from Saskatchewan on his way to work on the oil rigs in Northern Alberta.

He took me out for a nice supper shortly after he arrived last night.

I love my nephew, he is such a interesting and funny young man.

We always have a laugh or ten, and share some stories.

Hard to believe he will be “37” next year and I will be “57.”

It seems like only yesterday that he was born.

We have shared a lifetime together.

I am so blessed to have so many great family members in my life.

I also learned of a cousin who recently passed away – another great man.

He was about my “Dad’s” age and they were first cousins.

Always in our thoughts and prayers.

Time has a way of grabbing you by the hands and pulling you along for the ride whether you want to go or not.

You just have to learn to be go for it.

There is nothing currently on this planet that will stop time other than passing away.

Maybe in the future we will be able to stop time or at least play with it more effectively but for now we just have to go along for the ride.

Make the most of each moment and live with no regrets.

So on this Sunday as I begin to get ready to go and work at the store …. I am so reminded that I have been very blessed throughout my lifetime.

I have lead a very interesting life and am looking forward to the rest of the ride.

There have been a few twists and turns along the way but without them I would not have had this ride, my ride, my life.

I am so grateful for it all.

I hope that you enjoy your ride and hang on and go.

You never know where the ride will take you.

Special Hello to: Happy Birthday “J” – hard to believe it is “50” …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
