Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 28th day of February, 2016.

Today is the second last day of February – remember this year we have an extra day.

It is a bright sunny morning – the dinner birthday party was a huge successful.

Something I do seldom I did – had a couple of drinks and well up a bit later than usual.

Guests brought some refreshments ….. oh, my.

( Do not worry I was up at 6:00 with Mr. Alvin – he did sleep in for him as we were up until midnight).

The Birthday Girl was happy and all my guests loved supper and the cake.

So sweet both the Birthday Girl and My Guest brought me flowers ….. am I not the luckiest girl, I think so.

So it was a success ….. Mr. Alvin had four-legged company which was great.

So I leave this with you …… on a day that fills me with inspiration .

 

 INSPIRING

Inspiration comes from the oddest of places, at the strangest of times.

Inspiration can arrive with a knock on your door, say around 4:00.

Inspiration can take you places that your heart has always wanted to go.

Inspiration can make the day so much more fun.

Inspiration can come from watching the neighbourhood children running down the sidewalk.

Inspiration can come from catching one’s smile in the bathroom mirror, at just the right time.

Inspiration just sometimes arrives.

Inspiration can come from watching your dog meet his first love.

I am inspired each and every day by something.

It can be a dragonfly flying in my back yard.

It can be the scent of the roses on a summer’s day.

Making me wish that I was a maker of perfume and could bottle that heavenly scent.

It can be from watching the clouds float on by.

It can be from life – such as it is – such as it will be.

Inspiration gives us wings – gives us wings to fly.

Be inspired.  Whether it by something big or something small or nothing at all.

Just be inspired.  Be inspiring.  It is inspiration after all.

To have uplifting influence on ….. I like this dictionary meaning.

Have the most wonderful day …..

Take a walk …. help a friend ….. be kind to yourself.

Special Hello to: my sister ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

      Hi Maria,
      I received your most thoughtful comment and I am so pleased that you enjoyed my post. It was the best night. My friends came over and each brought flowers, so thoughtful. The meal turned out great and the chocolate carrot cake was a huge smash ….. it was a great evening. I replied to your post about the doggies but for some reason my comments would not post. Not sure what I did as I am not the most technically savvy person on the planet. But just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed reading your post on your blog. I know that it is something I need to do on a regular basis and that is read the most wonderful blogs of those who take the time to read mine. Thanks again, it is most appreciated. Have an awesome rest of your Sunday. My work is finally done which included picking up trash in my neighbourhood. YAY ….. time to relax with Alvin and have a cup of tea.
