Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 21st day of January, 2017.

It is a gloomy day out there as the air and sky is covered in fog.

Yes, I can only see my garage and one row of houses behind us.

So I can only imagine the highways and in the country.

I guess the temperature must have changed over night.

I am so glad for the weekend.

Alvin has an appointment at noon to have his nails trimmed which he really needs now.

It has been about six weeks since his last trim.

He is impatiently waiting as I want to write this and then have a shower before going downstairs to start our day even though we were up at 5:00 a.m. for his breakfast and bathroom break.

Quietness fills the air and I am grateful for the stillness.

I wish that everyone could/would have a peaceful, quiet, happy, relaxing weekend.

With time for a walk.

Well better get this show on the road ….shower calling ….. laundry definitely calling and soon it will be time to leave for the vet.

Time always seems to go at lightning speed on the weekend.

Have a safe, warm, happy, relaxing weekend everyone.

 

Special Hello to: YOU ….. remember to be kind to yourself….you matter.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 16th day of October, 2014.

Yesterday was an exciting day for us, finally some great news about my nephew.

Twice yesterday he opened his eyes and once was with my daughter and myself present in the room.

He did not move this eyes around but just the simply act of opening them is cause for great hope.

He also squeezed the heck out of my right hand from the time we got there until we left ….

Of course, breaks in between.

I sincerely thought he might break my hand he was squeezing that tight ….

Anyway more cause for hope and that is all we can ever ask for ……

Rained late yesterday afternoon and throughout the night.

We are still to have some beautiful warm days for the next week or so …..

I am so grateful that all of the positive energy and prayers were taken to him.

Well almost time to leave for work.

I “hit the snooze button” so to speak a couple of times this morning.

I guess I should say “hit the sofa” a couple of times extra this morning.

Thank you for reading my blog and for your support it truly means the world to me.

Have a great great day.

Special Hello to: my nephew “J” who is in the hospital and is on his way back to us.

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S. I think I mentioned that Alvin and I finally had our annual photo taken ….. so excited to see the final product. ┬áMy daughter always does a crazy good job.

Thought for the day…..

Are there days when you wish for excitement?

Perhaps a surprise vacation.

Are there days when you wish for that knock at the door?

And you open the door to find the “Prize Patrol” standing there with a big cheque and a huge bouquet of roses and balloons – ALL JUST FOR YOU!

Are there times when you know that something FANTASTIC, AMAZING, AWESOME, INCREDIBLE is about to happen, and you wonder WHEN for Pete’s sake?

Are there moments when you just ask GOD, your Angels, a higher power or just your inner YOU …. what the heck am I doing?

Where am I supposed to be now?

What am I supposed to be doing?

Why, why, why?

Now we are starting to sound like a small child …..

But often I wonder at the end of the day or early in the morning …… WHY?

I have so many things that I want to do with and in my life and I should be doing them ALL.

I was just reading one of my favourite Blogs ….. THE PIONEER WOMAN – REE DRUMMOND

Now there is one busy woman.

She has children, home schools them, has a husband, lives on a ranch, has this incredible (too die for blog), is a cookbook author and now she has written a children’s book.

I want to be her. ┬áMinus the children, husband and living on a ranch – my life much mirrors hers.

Actually I would love to have the husband and live on a ranch but my baby making days are over (thank goodness).

Now I look forward to the Grandma stage.

So someone please tell me, how do I get from here to there?

I just need a small boost – just a little “break” ….. after all, doesn’t everyone?

Well, a few minutes ago, there was a knock at my door.

My neighbour was standing there (not the prize patrol).

Through a conversation a few minutes later with her finance a light came on….

It was just the small boost that I needed.

So here I go.

So whenever you find that you need a “little boost” or a “break” ……

You too, might have a knock at your door or perhaps you might overhear a conversation that leads you somewhere….

or see a sign on a truck driving by or just inspiration from somewhere out there.

So that is my today …. my thought for the day……

It will always come to you ….. if you are AWARE.

Have a great “Good Friday” to all those who celebrate and to everyone Happy FRIDAY.

I hope that the sun is shining wherever you are …… it is shining here and my heart is full.

Always, Carol
