Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 9th day of August, 2016.

Last night it poured and poured and there were mighty roars of thunder and bolts of lightning.

The sky appears to be clearing which is nice.

Sunshine after the rain is always good.

There is a long list of people who share this date, this Birthday with me:

My Cousin “M” who is exactly to the day ten years younger than me, today is his 49th Birthday.

A friend back in Regina “A” who turns the big 40 today.

An old friend “D” who is exactly one year younger than me.

Happy Happy Birthday to all my friends, and may you all have a wonderful Birthday and year to follow.

 

I think it is strange how we always reflect on life twice a year.

Once on your birthday and the other when ushering in the New Year.

At this point today I am more than happy.

I have my own house which I have always, always dreamed of having …..

I am in good health.

I am surrounded by loving, supportive family and friends.

I have my partner in crime who is visiting for a few days at his sister’s house making our home very quiet.

That would be me Alvin.

My four-legged boy.

Miss you buddy but it is good for you to venture away from home once in awhile, out of your comfort zone.

He is a Momma’s boy and loves being at home.

Travelling in the car not so much.

I have been a few places …. done some things ….. I have created many things.

My most proud creation was/is my daughter.

So when you can rattle off a bunch of things that are positive and good and you live a good life ….. then reflection is a good memory.

 

I am thinking that I am going to take my umbrella as I do not think we are out of the woods yet.

So excited after work tonight my daughter is picking me up from work and we are going to West Edmonton Mall.

We will grab a bite to eat before going to see the new STAR TREK MOVIE.

I am beyond excited.

I love the Star Trek movies.

To see it on the big screen is also amazing.

 

Well here it is almost time to leave the house once again for work.

I hope that you all have a super great day.

I am.  I will.

 

I always want to extend my sympathies to family and friends who have lost dear ones these past few weeks.  You are in my thoughts and in my heart.

 

Special Hello to:  Happy Birthday loved ones and friends who celebrate this day with me.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 20th day of August, 2015.

Wow, the 20th day of August ….. what a month it has been.

This morning the sky was overcast with big dark blue “rain clouds” but now as the sun comes up they appear to have tints of pink mixed in with the blue, so very pretty.

I am always in awe of the sky.

It can change so quickly and seem to be so many different colours and hold so many different shapes of clouds.

I truly am in awe.

I love the morning sky.

I love the night sky.

The daytime sky I do not see too much of …. but I think I love it, too.

I can see the trees swaying in the wind ….. so it is a bit breezy.

Oh those late summer days ….. I can hear the song from Grease in my head.

On of my all time favourite movies.

John Travolta …. mmmm dreamy

Olivia Newton-John ….. mmm pretty

That seemed like a trillion years ago.

Well on this fantastic Thursday, I am reminded by a dream that kindness and respectfulness are some of the best characteristics one could envelope.

Don’t you just love those words with two or three meanings.

Gotta love the English language.

Gotta ….. whoops another slang word.

On this Thursday “Gotta” with a capital G sounds better than “got to” ……

Well it is almost time to hop on downstairs and grab my lunch and stuff and head out for the bus.

I hope that you have a crazy great Thursday.

Remember to be kind and respectful and even more importantly do this with love in your heart.

Fill the room with laughter ….

Let us have a great day.

Special Hello to: my friend “M” who is so creative ….. your creations are so beautiful…. thank you for sharing.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 9th day of December, 2014.

Yes, one more day closer to Christmas.

My favourite time of the year.

I do love the decorations, the hustle and bustle, the baking, the Christmas Cards, the hooting and hall hauling, the music and the fuss.

I must admit I truly love this time of year.

I have another friend who loves this time of year as much as me.

She lives not quite a block away.

We had tea and homemade cinnamon buns last night at her house.

I love her decorations.

Every time we get together the hours seem like minutes, seconds even.

I absolutely love spending time with her ….

We talk …. we laugh ….. we talk ….. we laugh …..

Her husband usually chats at the start of our visit and at the end.

They are such a lovely couple ……

Looks like a trip to Costco this evening after work ……

Just we girls…..

I wonder how busy it will be.

I was surprised at how many shoppers were at the mall last Sunday.

Seems early but likely not.

We seem to forget from year to year.

Well today is another day.

Each second is new and precious.

Even though there are a few seconds here and there that I could do without for the most part I am over the moon grateful for my life.

I have learned so much by my errors or slips in judgement or from lack of information.

Life is all about learning.

I am a student of life.

I guess that is a good thing.

So take the time today to learn something …. even a new word.

Always worthwhile.

You never know when you could use that word or that action you learned to help yourself or others.

So off to the office I go.

Thank you for reading – it means the world to me.

Special Hello to: all those people who create and share their creations with the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 9th day of September, 2013.

So on this Monday morning I wonder what makes everyone happy?

Is it love?  Money?  A big house?  Having a family?  Having whatever you want to eat each day?

Is it being safe?  Is it knowing that you are surrounded by the people that you love?  Is it having a job that you are passionate about?

Is it dreaming?  Is it pursuing those dreams?  Is it writing?  Is it creating art?  Is it being in great health?  Is it going on vacations?

Is it travelling all over the world?  Is it cooking for your family?  Is it walking with your dog?  Is it sipping on a great cup of coffee on the patio on a Saturday morning?

Is it watching the night sky?  Is it stopping to smell the roses?

There are so many possibilities.

For Happiness.

Is it that you are just plain happy with life in general?

Are you naturally happy and do not need material things to make you happy?

What makes or creates happiness in our lives?

Something to ponder, to think about and perhaps create conversation around the water cooler or over a cup of coffee.

I hope that you are happy.

Special Hello to: all those positive energy happy people …. keep up the great work.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
