Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 15th day of July, 2014.

It is a beautiful sunny morning here in Edmonton with a nice cool breeze.

Forecast:  HOT.

Thank goodness for central air conditioning.

The puppies will stay cool and happy.


I would like to share a story from our walk last night.

We generally walk around the park in our neighbourhood that has three smaller man made “lakes” with homes surrounding them.

While we were walking we said hello to this “Grandma and little Girl” ….. they said hello.

Of course, Mr Alvin ran toward their fence to greet them.

They came down to the fence.

We live in a very multi-cultural neighbourhood which is very cool.

This Grandma speaks only some English but enough that we could have a conversation.

She commented on “how beautiful Alvin was” and if “a boy or a girl”?

I told her boy and that his name was Alvin and she initially could not say Alvin but more like “Albin” but then she got it.

We had a giggle and the little girl squealed with delight over Alvin.

But the cute part of the story was this:  “She said the beautiful ones get more love.”

I said very true.

Isn’t it funny that we all have that idea planted in our minds.

Perhaps we need to love each other no matter our appearance.

Well time to go to work.

Just wanted to quickly share that story.

Keep in mind ……. everyone deserves love and respect.

I love my neighbours …..

Special Hello to: my family and friends …

Always, Carol and Alvin
