Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 22nd day of February, 2015.

It is the day before my sister’s birthday.

She will be 56 this birthday.

That reminds me I will be 58 in August.

Where does the time go?

Have you ever sat down and recorded things that happened during your life thus far.

Perhaps each one …

Maybe by decade ….

It could be anything …. really ….

Perhaps the birth of a younger sibling.

Marriage.

First day of grade school.

The birth of your children.

Your first pet.

First adult book you read.

Graduating from college/university.

Death of a parent.

First time spoke in front of a crowd/group.

Your first winter vacation.

Your first job.

Major move from birthplace.

First flower you remember seeing and smelling.

There are so many things ….

Grab a notebook the next time you visit the neighbourhood discount store and start recording your life.

When you have a day or maybe a week where you are feeling like your life is blah and doesn’t mean anything …. grab your notebook and look at all that has happened thus far.

You will be pleasantly surprised.

It doesn’t matter if you are not a rocket scientist or inventor of the modern day computer.

It doesn’t matter that you do not have children.

It doesn’t matter if you did not graduate high school.

It doesn’t matter if you did not get married.

But what does matter …. and is most important.

Is this: that you were born,

that you took the time to smell that rose, and appreciate the wonder of nature;

that you adopted that wonderful dog who had been abused, neglected and unloved;

that you shovelled the sidewalk and driveway every winter for your elderly neighbours;

that you recycled cardboard, tins and such;

that you were kind to all those who surrounded you each day;

that you always gave your best.

See you have lived a great life ….. now write it down.

Have the best Sunday.

Happy birth – day …… you matter.

Special Hello to: each of us.

Always, Carol and Alvin
