Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 22nd day of December, 2014.

WOW, only two sleeps until Christmas Eve and three sleeps until Christmas Morning.

Where has the time gone?

Have you been busy this holiday season?

I guess most folks have been ….. I know that I have been off the charts busy.

But busy is good as long as it is tempered with some “me” time.

I did take a few moments here and there but likely should have been a few more.

During these last few days before Christmas we should all take a few minutes and think about what you are grateful for …..

I am so grateful this holiday season to my daughter and son-in-law for always taking good care of me Alvin and me.

I am so grateful to work with two groups of amazing, interesting, fun and loving people.

I am so grateful to have the best family and friends on the planet.

I am so grateful that I am able to work two jobs.

I am so grateful that I have my own house.

I am so grateful that I am in great health (this should be a the top of the list).

I am so grateful for this beautiful weather.

I am so grateful to live in such a great country, Canada.

Well I hear my ride getting close to being ready ( I am grateful for car rides to work, most especially in the winter).

I am grateful to all of you for taking your precious time to read my blog ….. it means the world to me.

I love to write.

Special Hello to: all my dear friends and family, to my co-workers and everyone that I meet each day while at work and walking down the street and in the mall.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

As the sun comes up on this Friday morning …… I am reminded of all the many blessings that

surround me in my life.  Each day I find so many more things to be thankful for …… on this day …..

take a look around and remind yourself …… what you are thankful for……

I am grateful for:  the clean air that I breathe every day ….. blue skies…… beautiful sunrises and sunsets….

of course, my faithful companion, my dog Alvin……my gorgeous & amazing daughter Amanda and her husband …. they both

make me laugh on a daily basis (laughter is the best medicine) (*Elton & Penny, my grand-puppies) ……. all the great people that I am blessed to spend time with on a daily basis….

all the new folks that I come into contact everyday and for all the things that they teach me……for all the great food that I am blessed to have in my

fridge and pantry ……for this great country, CANADA……butterflies and dragonflies and ladybugs……spiders….(yes, them too)……my wonderful

family and all of my friends near and far…….all the people that read my blog everyday and perhaps I might bring a smile to their face……there

are so many things from the big to the small ……

Thank you for this wonderful morning.  I am so grateful that both Alvin and I slept completely through the night……YAY….. just woke up when

the alarm went off……I am thinking waking up to music might be nice…..  🙂

Have a great day.


Always, Carol
