Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 6th day of October, 2016.

Dark outside typical of this time of year.

No moisture of any sort over night or yet this morning.

Great to be dry as we have had quite a lot of moisture this year.

Not complaining as we did need it over the spring and summer.

Most of the leaves are now off the tree out front.

Likely one for sure or possibly two times more to rake.

Forgot to keep a bag of leaves to decorate for Halloween.

I guess I should have enough to fill a bag before then.

***********************************************************************

My thoughts as of late have been on our four-legged friends.

The little guy you named “Charlie” or the little girl you named “Daisy.”

Over the years they greeted you at the door after work tails wagging so happy to see you.

They cuddled with you when you felt as though your world had ended.

They kept you exercising through walking and tossing the ball because you felt it was good for them.

But all the while it was to keep you from vegging on the sofa (so smart they are).

Actually good for everyone.

Even though in the beginning there was no way he or she was going to sleep on your bed.

Now they are a permanent fixture.

They live in the moment.

There are also our feline friends who are just as much a part of our families as our canine ones.

Sally and Joe who lived with you since they were kittens.

Chasing each other all over the house bringing a smile to your face.

Sometimes we take for granted how much joy and goodness our four-legged friends bring to our lives.

They start out as kittens or puppies.

They make us laugh and cry throughout the learning  process but then we all grow up.

So if you think for one moment that they are just “animals” or just there for your protection or for your power trip, think again.

They are our friends, our companions, our family.

We play with them, we take care of them and we love them.

Just like any other member of our families.

Treat them well.

Respect them.

One day they will be gone and you will regret not being a good family member.

They do not ask for much.

Just food and respect.

So on this Thursday my thoughts and heart go out to all those family members that we lost this past year.

Watch over us.

We love you and miss you so much.

************************************************

Happy Thursday.

Special Hello to: my family and friends

Always, Carol and Alvin
