Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 16th day of September, 2014.

I am back …. took a sick day yesterday as I was not feeling well …..

I hope that this finds you well and ready to go for this Tuesday.

I am reminded by those around me that life is precious.

Whether it is a two-legged Father or a four-legged puppy friend.

We need, no we have to treat each life force with love and respect.

All too often we let petty thoughts get in the way of being respectful and full of love.

I am just putting this out there for this Tuesday …..

Let us be grand master of respect.

Let us be grand masters of love.

Let us be grand masters of thought.

Let us be grand masters of feeling with a true heart.

Let us be grand masters of paying kindness forward.

Let us be grand keepers of this beautiful planet we call “Earth” and home.

Special Hello to: all of my dear ones out there ….. you are truly loved and respected.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 11th day of December, 2013.

Are you counting the days until Christmas?

15 sleeps till Christmas ….

I hope that you are enjoying the holiday season.

In between the shopping and the baking and the children’s concerts and the late nights at work – I hope that you are just enjoying listening to some great Christmas music while enjoying the lights as they sparkle on the Christmas tree.

Take some quiet time to reflect on the past year and think to next year.

Be grateful for what you have.

I hope that you are as blessed as me.

To have a tree.

To have a home.

To be able to hear the music.

I also believe at this time and all throughout the year that we should help those less fortunate than ourselves.

If you know someone who needs a bit of help or perhaps some encouragement …. lend an ear or a hand.

Even when you do not have an excess amount of cash to help others there are many other ways to do so.

You can invite someone over for a meal.

You could go through your pantry and make up a package for a nice meal.

You can go through your closet and give away that coat or sweater that you have not worn since last year.

Give a pair of mittens or a scarf.

Volunteer at a shelter for humans or animals.

Go visit a senior’s centre.

Bake some cookies for a neighbour.

Shovel a sidewalk for someone disabled or elderly.

All the creatures on this earth can use a hand.

Be mindful and be kind.

So on this mid week day I challenge you all to be “mindful of what you do and say” and “to be kind to every living creature.”

We all inhabit this beautiful planet and are all here for a reason …..

Special Hello to: SURPRISES …. you never know when or how.

Always, Carol and Alvin
