Good Morning ALL! How are you this morning? We are doing well. I cannot believe how much snow we got, well actually I can because I shovelled like a ton of it, lol. As I turn my head and look out of my office window I see the sunrise. The horizon is filled with light pastel colours. A happy palette. They bring me joy. I wished that Alvin could see colours, he would definitely love the sky. Late yesterday afternoon the sky cleared and stayed clear overnight as I saw the stars in the sky when we were outside at 2:30 a.m. Yes we were. It is the age thing and the bathroom. I cannot fault Mr. Alvin as I am usually up at least once during the night to “pee,” so what can you do! Life is life. Sometimes I get “bent out shape” over things because I am an emotional creature. I don’t mean that I do bad things to Alvin or to people but I cry easily and I have raised my voice to both Alvin and people. Not that I am proud of those times but I am human. I apologize and move on. Trying to better the next time. Making those times fewer and more far between. One thing is I do not raise my voice to Alvin when he gets up during the night to go outside, I do not. Sometimes he whines when I am doing things, usually because he wants to eat or wants some food that I have ….. there has been the occasional time that I have raised my voice but not often. I guess I am feeling guilty this morning because I did raise my voice to him yesterday. Bad Momma. One thing that I have to remember to do is to take four deep breaths and count to ten. Distracting myself from the situation and that would help with my job as well. Somedays I want to scream at certain situations. So you see, I am not perfect and I am human. I try to be a good neighbour, good Mom, good friend, good coworker and good person overall.

Well I took all of my writing time “venting” on this post. I apologize for that. The words just tumbled out onto the page and I am always writing in the moment. The things that come to my head, to my mind. Sometimes there are “raw feelings” that emerge onto the page. Thank you for reading my posts and for continuing to fall my post. It is appreciated.

Wishing you a great day.

Time to go and make some coffee and start work in a few minutes.

Continuing to live this life with respect, kindness, compassion, patience (work in progress), love, laughter, and gratitude.

Always, Carol & Alvin
