It is a NEW YEAR.

Good Wednesday Morning,

Alvin and I enjoyed another wonderful walk last night in the warm air.

So happy to see the sidewalks becoming more and more clear of ice and snow.

The moon has been glorious for the past few days.

Full, round and present.

I have seen some of the photos taken in New York City and the moon appeared to be sitting beside the city skyline of skyscrapers.

So beautiful.

The colour appeared different than it has here in Edmonton, a few thousand miles away.

2427 miles to be precise ( that is what google is for when we are not quite sure ).

My moon shots were not that great.

Perhaps if I played with the settings on my iPhone, I could have taken better shots but that is okay.

Not everyone is gifted with the eye for taking great, spectacular photos.

I am good at other things.

Like we all are ….

We all have our special gifts.

When you are having a moment and believe that you are not special, that just is not so.

Every single being on this planet, every spark of life, is special and holds a place within the biosphere we call Earth.

I know that it may be difficult some days to think in this way but we must.

No one person is any better than the next.

We all have our quirks, our desires, our ambitions, our creative energies, the way we comb our hair to the way we handle our days.

If we learn to stop, smell the roses, take the time to relax and just be.

Be well, be good within ourselves.

Perhaps maybe we may realize how special each creature is to our very existence.

I hope so anyway.

That is not to say that we all do not have those moments, oh believe, you me …. I have them.

We all do and that is part of what it is to be human.

We run the gamut of emotions.

 

Well it is almost time to head back downstairs to finish the “getting ready” process.

There be poop to pick up (as always), some last minute snuggles with my boy, lunch to grab out of the fridge.

The coat, the mitts, the scarf and the boots and remember to take my purse and phone.

 

I wish you the best of Wednesdays.

Happy Birthday to all those celebrating today.

May you be covered in eternal joy, good health and enjoy much laughter and abundance.

 

Days to be filled with kindness and respect.

Today will be …..

 

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Living … One day at a time.

Good Morning and I guess the countdown has already begun.

There are only “14” sleeps till CHRISTMAS EVE.

How exciting is that?

Very.

Do you believe in Santa Claus?

I have always believed.

Believing in something not the modern day commercialism of it all.

Truly, I love the thought of Santa Claus.

The goodness and the love within Kris Kringle.

The ability to bring joy to millions.

Every July I begin to watch every Christmas movie, I have and I have many.

I believe that we all have the ability within us to be SANTA CLAUS.

Or at least what we have billed him to be.

The giver of wonderful thoughtful gifts to children and adults alike.

Every person deserves to have a little something that they have always desired or wanted or needed.

Does not have to be a jet plane or an expensive video system.

Does not have to be expensive jewelry or a new car.

Sometimes all someone desires, needs or wants is a warm pair of socks.

Sometimes all someone desires, needs or wants is new dish towels for the kitchen.

Sometimes all someone desires, needs or wants is a new warm winter coat as theirs is too small or worn out.

Sometimes it may be a book, some of their favourite candy, a board game or a doll.

It does not have to be big or expensive.

But it needs two things.

  1.  To be given with love.
  2. To be received with love.

 

Well I guess on that note it is time for me to head downstairs.

Finish getting ready.

Pick up the you know what from the you know where !!!!

 

Have an awesome Tuesday.

 

Thank you for reading my blog.

I only have two goals.  One is to write daily and the other is to hopefully bring a smile to your face.

Thank you.

 

 

Always, Carol & Alvin
