Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 10th day of September, 2016.

The sun is shining amidst some deep blue rain clouds.

I hope that the sun wins out.

The forecast is for a nice day.

Last night Alvin and I enjoyed a beautiful walk in our neighbourhood.

The leaves are turning away from summer green to fall yellows and oranges and reds.

Mostly yellows at this time.

Alvin is waiting patiently for us so that we can go downstairs.

Of course, he forgets that we were up much earlier than now for his breakfast.

This morning decided to work backwards by having a shower, changing bedding and doing my blog before having breakfast, writing in my gratitude journal and having coffee.

I like to check back from time to time and see what I wrote over the years and I found something that is good advice if you will and a little bit funny.

From September 2010:

P.S.  Every day take a few minutes and just be grateful.  Pick up a notebook and it doesn’t have to be fancy. Then every morning before you go out into the world or if you are at home before you start doing your thing – write down all of the things you are grateful for or at least five.  Trust me, you feel better and it starts the tone for your day.  Suddenly that drive to work is more relaxing, the little one tugging on your pants (child or dog) doesn’t make you crazy, waiting in the line-up for your first cup of coffee doesn’t phase you out in the least and you just plain feel better.  Being grateful and loving just make the world a better place.  Also, remember to thank the girl that just made your first cup of coffee, and  to thank the young man that held the door open for you.

Back to 2016,

Have a brilliant Saturday.

We have quiet plans to do laundry, go for walks and do some tea stuff.

Happy Saturday.

Special Hello to: all of my dear friends and family ….. I think of you all the time.

Always, Carol and Alvin
