Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 19th day of August, 2013.

It always surprises me by how quickly it goes from being light and sunny at 5:00 to being completely dark at that time.

It is just after 6:00 a.m. and the sky is beginning to show signs of sunrise.

Both the beginning of the day and the ending of each one are so dramatically gorgeous.

They start with fantastic coloration and end the same.

I guess it is up to us to keep the colour flowing throughout the course of the day.

It is quite something when you think of what an amazing job “Mother Nature” does; but I believe that we are up for the challenge.

If you go to bed grateful and happy for all of the wonderful things in your life you will wake up that way.

So it is a good place to start, right?

When you get up in the morning even before your feet fit the floor …. say ” Good Morning” ……

Maybe it is to your pet who shares your bed or your significant other or perhaps you have the whole bed to yourself; whatever the case may be ….. say “Good Morning.”

Starting the day with a positive affirmation always makes a huge difference.

I always plant a smile on my face as well.

I imagine all of the people and things that I am grateful for in my life.

Try it ….

Lighten your morning and brighten your days.

Have a great one.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Special Hello to:  my fellow bloggers ….

Thought for the day…..

Well here it is not quite 6:00 a.m. on a “sunny” Edmonton morning.  The sun was coming up and poking his way through the clouds.  So still at this moment.  I can only hear the sound of my fingers hitting the keys and the sound of my computer humming away.  It is strange how quiet it is early in the day.  But wonderful.

Alvin must have sensed that this was not an usual morning as he had me up just after 4:30 a.m…… I had the alarm set for 5:00.  But that’s okay … I then had extra time.  Getting back into a different routine again.  But that is okay.  I enjoy new opportunities, and life has been sending me a few of those as of late.  OMG, I just turned my head and looked out the window.  The sun is shining across the homes to the south of my view and looks AMAZING.  It is great to see the sun shine after several days of rain.  We were grateful for the rain.  Time for the sun to shine.

Okay, back to the program.  Thought for the day……  ALWAYS GOOD TO CHANGE THINGS UP.  WE ALL NEED TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.  I WAS GOING TO SAY CHALLENGE OURSELVES BUT I THINK, ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT WHENEVER WE USE THE WORD CHALLENGE …. IT SETS US OFF ON A DIFFERENT PATH.  SO I SHALL SAY “DIFFERENT”.  Make sure that you take those opportunities as you might be more than pleasantly surprised where they may lead.

I will share my news later today.  All good though.

Have a wonderful, great, happy, joyful day.


Always, Carol
