Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 24th day of September, 2015.

The second day of autumn/fall.

The air felt warm this morning when Alvin went outside or at least warmer than it has been in the mornings.

Yesterday was so beautiful and we enjoyed our walk by the walk so much.

We truly can learn from our beloved “friends” …..

Mr. Alvin loves walking by the lake(s) near our home.

I let him go on the longest length of his leash and he sniffs about.

Enjoying every minute.

Last night there was something close to the trees near the water and I literally had to walk down and coax him to come back near the sidewalk.

I did not know what he was smelling with his super duper senses and I really did not wish to know.

Finally he came up to the sidewalk and we continued our walk.

Truly we can learn from them.

On the way home he even stopped to smell the roses that are still blooming near the entrance to the park.

I often stop to smell them and now he does, too.

We are reminded to “stop and smell the roses” ……

Stop and be still.

Be in the moment.

For in that moment is the best of life.

So stop and treasure it everyday.

Take that moment and you will be forever changed.

Enjoy your Thursday …..

As will I.

Thank you for your time.

You are so amazing and I appreciate you.

Time to hit the trail to the bus.

Special Hello to: my friends back in Saskatchewan …. wished that you were all on a plane coming to see me.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 30th and last day of April, 2014.

Whoa where did April go?

It was an interesting April of 2014, I shall say.

We are grateful that here in Edmonton are skies are bright and blue as the sun rises in the east.

We hope that the snow that has fallen to the east melts quickly and that our neighbours in Saskatchewan and eastward have our weather soon.

Thank you.

Mr. Alvin came in to take a look and sniff at me as this morning I decided to wear a “skirt.”

This is not an usually sight in my house.

In fact, this is the first bare legs I have had since last summer.

Feels good to not have material covering my skin although my skirt is longer.

I am so happy is we are just about to touch “summer.”

Although you know that spring is my favourite season; summer and fall come in a close second.

I also do not mind winter.

I guess I am a all season lover.

Lover of all seasons.

You always have to take it all to appreciate the high points.

That is life.

So on this last day of April – let us be grateful that:

– we are alive

– we have food in the fridge

– we are surrounded by family and friends

– we are surrounded by love and laughter

– we have blessings in all shapes and sizes

– we can hear the clock ticking

– we can taste that good food in the fridge

– we can smell the fresh air

– we can see the bright blue sky and that perfect sunrise

– we can walk to the mailbox

– we can buy that cup of coffee on the way to work

– we can talk and communicate

– we have each other.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those amazing human beings that read my blog and every blog ….. thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for this day ……

Remembering happy times from long long ago …… is a good thing.

I am writing stories from my youth and throughout my life.

It is a good thing.

Take time to remember …… it makes you appreciate and live each moment to the fullest.

Live NOW….. but remember always…..

Always, Carol
