Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 27th day of August, 2016.

Well it is almost afternoon and has been a late rising busy morning thus far.

Lots to do as Alvin and I were invited out for supper this evening.

Actually he will eat at home but he is coming with me.

Lucky to have so many friends in our neighbourhood.

We can walk to our friend’s house which is so nice.

I feel as though today is a poetry kind of day.

So just wanted to share this poem with you that I wrote a few years ago.


It is titled simply:


Thank you for the sunshine

Thank you for the rain

Thank you for the laughter

Thank you for the pain

Thank you for the cool nights

Thank you for the warm days

Thank you for the love

Thank you for the way it fills my heart

Thank you for each buzzing bee

Thank you for all the trees

Thank you for the roses

Thank you for their sweet smell

Thank you for my family

Thank you for the way

Thank you for my dog, Alvin

Thank you for this heaven

Thank you for the abundance

Filling my day – keeping me full

Thank you for the sun, the moon and the stars

Thank you for old ladies, young men

Thank you for music played on guitars

And then !!!

Thank you

It is so easy to take for granted our health, our homes, our family and friends but do not.

Everything is fleeting in life and can change in a nanosecond.

Take care and have an awesome Saturday.

Special Hello: Birthday Wishes to our friend “C” who celebrates on this day.

Always, Carol and Alvin
