It is a NEW YEAR.

Hello Monday morning.

I enjoyed, we enjoyed a pancake breakfast with our girl yesterday.

Of course, Alvin did not eat pancakes although he really wanted to have some.

He did have some banana.

We had a great visit and even had time for a game of sequence and a game of JENGA.

Alvin and I enjoyed a walk after the visit.

We even had a visit with one of my neighbours as we passed along their home.

 

Yesterday my sister, one of my longtime friends and a new friend down the street, all celebrated birthdays.

I spoke to my sister on the telephone, my friend from back and I exchanged long emails catching up and the neighbour down the street, I walked over with a small gift.

February has been chalked full of birthdays.

Every single day had a birthday.

Busy month.

March is another busy month coming up.

This feels like a poem kind of morning.

Something to provoke thought and realization.

I am eternally grateful each and everyday for my life.

Would I change things, some things, perhaps.

But at the end of the day, it is the sum of all the parts, good and bad, that make us who we are.

 

I would like to share a poem that I wrote several years ago.

*******************************

“ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE”

There are many mornings when I rise,

That I draw a sigh and am grateful.

Am truly grateful for all that I have and all that I am.

I realize that no matter what, I am blessed.

Blessed with the realization that all things are possible.

I haven’t always been akin to this way of thinking.

But I would say that I have always been a positive being and a “hopeless romantic.”

Some days it is just a matter of putting one positive thought in front of another …

No matter what anyone thinks, life is work.

The work does not always require physical force but always requires “thought.”

Using your brain.

I believe that all things are possible.

Looking back over my life, I would tend to agree.

Think about it!

“All things are possible.”

I wish each and every soul, every being that I encounter on my life’s path; a great life.

I wish that for every boulder in the road that you are able to get over it or around it and come out for the better on the other side.

I wish that no matter what life may bring to you, that you are loved.

That you are able to find a way, your way, of course, but a way to be in every day, joyful and in good health.

May love fill each second and abundance fill each day.

Happy Monday.

 

Always, from me and Alvin …….

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 6th day of September, 2014.

This morning as it is a bit later the sun is shining brightly.

I am feeling so grateful this morning.

Grateful that I have a roof over my head …

Grateful that it is my own house….

Grateful that I have the best kids and grand-puppies and of course, me Alvin….

Grateful that I am always surrounded by the best friends and family that anyone could ever ask for …..

Grateful that I am in great health …..

Grateful that I have siblings who remind me that all things are possible…..

Grateful that even when the sun doesn’t shine the world is bright ….

Grateful that a cup of coffee with a dear friend is a great way to start the weekend…..

Grateful that I have such wonderful neighbours…..

Grateful that I have a computer so that I can write this blog…..

Grateful that I live in this amazing country …..

Grateful that all things are possible.

I ask you to take a few minutes on this Saturday to sit back and list on paper, on the computer, on your phone or just in your head or aloud ….

ALL THE THINGS YOU ARE GRATEFUL FOR …….

Grateful to be able to see and hear the world around me.

So thankful for the beauty that Mother Nature bestows upon us.

Happy Saturday.
