Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 10th day of March, 2015.

Happy Birthday to my son-in-law’s brother “D” who turns “50” today.

So many birthdays this month.

In two days my baby girl, my only daughter turns “35.”

Now that is scary …… really 35 ….. it cannot be.

Where has the time gone.

 

Well it would appear that spring may have arrived here in Edmonton.

Well at least for the next couple of weeks we will experience plus single to low double digit temperatures.

The icy sidewalks are finally melting and walking home is not such a terrifying experience.

Last night one of my friends from the bus who happens to be a neighbour from down the way ( just met on the bus ) and I walked my regular path.

It has been so icy as of late …. it is the street from which I fell a few weeks back.

So thank goodness for the little things which is pretty huge.

I am so grateful to be able to walk at a regular pace home from the bus stop.

Soon the snow and ice will have melted.

The ground will be relieved to be able to breathe once again.

Life will start to show up all around us ….. leaves on the trees …… baby bunnies ….. the birds will be back.

YAY, I love spring.

 

I was thinking yesterday morning when I opened my blog and looked at the photo of me and realized that maybe I should put a more recent one up.

I do love that photo but it is a few years old now.

I will of course leave the one of me at a much younger age …. 🙂

Maybe I will post one of me and Alvin …… time will tell.

Right now I have a lot on my plate …. working two jobs ….. seven days a week.

But I do want to get back into writing more …… especially some of the other categories ….

I will …..

Thank you so much everyone for taking time out of your busy lives to read my thoughts …. it is so appreciated.

Well almost time to leave for the office.

I hope that you have an amazing day.

Smile lots ….. keep the faith …… stay positive.

I try to do this everyday ….. there are some days it is a bit harder than others but I do try.

After all, we are human …..

 

Special Hello to: my family and friends back in Regina …… thank you for always being there.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 13th day of January, 2015.

Today is the 50th Birthday of my baby, my little brother.

He was born January 13th, 1965.

I cannot believe that he is 50.

He was born a few months before my 8th Birthday.

He was a good natured, shy little guy.

He has grown up to be a good natured, not so shy guy.

Although I would say that he is not as much an extrovert as me.

But nonetheless he is a wonderful caring, loving human being.

He is a brother, father, grandfather, friend, Uncle, cousin and human being.

I want to wish him the Best Birthday ever.

May his day be filled with great joy and laughter and love, of course.

Happy Birthday “T” …..

 

On the family front, I spoke to the brother of my nephew that “WAS” in the coma and I am happy to report that he is “awake” ….

He does not communicate verbally but he does communicate.

Most especially with his brother.

 

So this is a great day …..

I wish you all a great day.

Special Hello to: all my family …… “Birthday Boy” and “Getting Better Boy.”

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 12th day of January, 2015.

WOW ….. almost my youngest brother’s 50th Birthday ….. it is tomorrow.

I cannot believe it.

Time flies.

Yesterday he was a baby…..

Or so it seems.

 

Yesterday one of my co-workers from the store had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her.

She is a great lady …..

 

You never know what the day will bring ….

I had one customer yesterday who was very mean to me.

I was only doing my job.

I hope that she realized this at some point.

Another customer even pointed out her rudeness.

Life is too short …

Just be kind.

We are all just trying to make our way.

We are all just trying to make a living.

Be kind to those dear souls working in retail.

It is not “easy” work ……

 

I hope that you all have a wonderful Monday.

Special Hello to: my friend “B” from the store ….. hope you are well soon.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 10th day of November, 2013.

The snow is coming down softly and Alvin is laying outside our bedroom door waiting for my nephew to wake up.

My nephew stopped by from Saskatchewan on his way to work on the oil rigs in Northern Alberta.

He took me out for a nice supper shortly after he arrived last night.

I love my nephew, he is such a interesting and funny young man.

We always have a laugh or ten, and share some stories.

Hard to believe he will be “37” next year and I will be “57.”

It seems like only yesterday that he was born.

We have shared a lifetime together.

I am so blessed to have so many great family members in my life.

I also learned of a cousin who recently passed away – another great man.

He was about my “Dad’s” age and they were first cousins.

Always in our thoughts and prayers.

Time has a way of grabbing you by the hands and pulling you along for the ride whether you want to go or not.

You just have to learn to be go for it.

There is nothing currently on this planet that will stop time other than passing away.

Maybe in the future we will be able to stop time or at least play with it more effectively but for now we just have to go along for the ride.

Make the most of each moment and live with no regrets.

So on this Sunday as I begin to get ready to go and work at the store …. I am so reminded that I have been very blessed throughout my lifetime.

I have lead a very interesting life and am looking forward to the rest of the ride.

There have been a few twists and turns along the way but without them I would not have had this ride, my ride, my life.

I am so grateful for it all.

I hope that you enjoy your ride and hang on and go.

You never know where the ride will take you.

Special Hello to: Happy Birthday “J” – hard to believe it is “50” …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
