Thought for the day ……

Good Afternoon and Welcome to Saturday the 14th day of December, 2013.

Just over a week now until the big day …. how did that happen?

Seems like only yesterday it was Halloween.

Had to sleep in this morning as I worked both jobs yesterday, and till midnight at the store as the mall had their MIDNIGHT MADNESS.  

I can just barely see some sunlight peering through the blue clouds.

Oh, how I wish that the sun would shine.

Please I hope and pray that moisture stays away for awhile.

I shovelled this morning before my daughter brought Mr. Alvin home …. at the entrance to the garage …. I shovelled Thursday night ….

There is no room to put any more snow.

I am now throwing it between our garages ….

The deck looks like someone threw a snow bomb back there.

The roof tops ….. I hope it melts some before we get more.

But alas there is more snow in the forecast.

But a girl can hope …. and pray …. and then hope again and then pray and WISH.

My sister had a Friday the 13th story, that I just read and I would love to share with you.

My sister and (her son) my nephew were supposed to be coming to Alberta to visit one of my brothers.

She was all ready to go …showered …. makeup done ….. just going to put a couple of things in a bag, and go downstairs to feed the kitties when she heard a SSHHHH ….

Running downstairs to the bathroom she saw that the pipe from the toilet had sprang loose, and water was spraying everywhere.

Spraying her in her face and soaking her from head to toe.

Just like in the movies.

Panicking she called my nephew and no answer.

So she called her boyfriend and no answer, then she called his work number and he rushed over and turned off the water.

She was able to get in touch with her son and found out he had during the night  come down with the flu, and not the kind that you can travel with …. was unable to come to help.

His wife came in with their shop vac so at least they could mop up most of the excess water.

My sister was able to get hold of a plumber recommended by my nephew and he came out within a couple of hours.

She also phoned our brother, and he said the roads were terrible and it was still snowing.

These are her exact words and they are perfect:

My take on all of this …. We weren’t supposed to go yesterday!!!!!  Something not only stopped one of us, BUT BOTH OF US RIGHT IN OUR TRACKS.  Now that’s a message from the universe if I’ve ever heard one.

So true.

See the Universe always tells you what to do or at least points you in the right direction if only you listen.

Thank goodness it was a strong message.

You see the important part of this story is …… where my brother is living in Alberta the roads were terrible and it was storming.  No travel was recommended.  If my nephew had not come down out of the blue with this bad flu and the water pipe had not burst they would have been on the road.  

Thank you Universe for keeping my family safe.

HUGE REMINDER TO LISTEN TO THAT INNER VOICE ….. THE UNIVERSE AND SOMETIMES IT IS AN OBVIOUS PIPE BURSTING OR STOMACH FLU THAT STOPS YOU RIGHT IN YOUR TRACKS.

OKAY, now it is time to check on the laundry and then take Mr. Alvin for a much deserved walk.

Special Hello and THANK YOU to: THE UNIVERSE.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
