Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 20th day of January, 2018.

I believe another beautiful day is on the way.

Yesterday Alvin received a huge amount of BIRTHDAY WISHES and we thank all of our family and friends for them.

We had a quiet but great evening.

He must have had a little extra something that I did not see as he had me up to go outside just after midnight and then up at his regular time of 4:00 a.m.

I think that we are going to have to work on the “getting out of bed time.”

I had a raging headache earlier but it seems to have dissipated.

Thank goodness as we are puppy sitting for the day.

Our friend Teddy is coming to stay with us.

 

I am grateful for my yesterdays, todays and tomorrows, as they have shaped me into who I am.

We all have those times that we would rather not have to remember but they define us.

We learn from yesterday, try to do better today and dream for tomorrow.

No one has the perfect life.

The grass is not always greener on the other side.

So while you are trying to get to “the other side” why not make it green for you.

 

Have an awesome Saturday.

Time to go and start the laundry, have breakfast and make coffee for me and my neighbour.

Time to empty the dishwasher and prepare for the company.

Happy Saturday.

 

Special Hello to: thank you to all those people who I have encountered throughout my life thus far.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Just heard a series of loud noises from outside, I had better go and investigate.

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 24th day of December, 2015 and Christmas Eve.

It is finally here …. the waiting is over.

Mother Nature has even joined in the excitement this day as it is ever so gently snowing.

The snow globe effect …..

While……

Me and the children are waiting patiently for Santa Claus to arrive ….

and Alvin, too.

Counting down the hours and minutes.

I remember back to when I was a young girl …. never could sleep Christmas Eve.

Just remember Santa Claus is a feeling ….. the feeling of wonder and awe, happiness and love.

Capture that feeling at Christmas and you will be set for life.

 

While I am a dreamer I am always a realist and while I, we are celebrating with our family and friends there are those who cannot.

There are many reasons ….

Perhaps they are alone in a hospital bed.

Perhaps they are homeless.

Perhaps they have no family or friends.

Perhaps there just is no money for the “trimmings.”

Or maybe they are not at home and cannot get there.

For whatever the reason…..you are not alone.

I want to WISH every human being on this planet all the LOVE that is celebrated and felt in my home, and in so many others.

I want to WISH every human being on this planet a place to call home, food in their bellies and to have the safety to just take a walk and gaze up at the stars.

We are all together ….. every decision I make, and you make affects someone, everyone, somewhere, everywhere.

So on this much celebrated day which should be the likes of everyday ….

I wish you love.

I wish you an easy life.

I wish you happiness.

I wish you joy.

I wish you laughter.

 

Merry Christmas Everyone from Me and Alvin …..

Have the Best Day and Remember to spread the Joy…..

You do not need another blue sweater or gift card to the mall.

There is someone out there perhaps close by who does ….

Merry Christmas …..

Be safe in your travels …..

 

Best Wishes

Carol and Alvin
