Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 13th day of July, 2017.

Rained some yesterday ….. but a beautiful day overall.

The house is cool to start this morning which will be great for Mr. Alvin.

Warming up again.

The smoke from the fires in British Columbia is slowly seeping into our city.

When you can see, smell and taste the smoke one can only imagine the density and severity of those fires for the residents of the affected areas.

To all the people and the animals whether domestic or wild you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Please rain.

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

On a more personal note:

Sometimes someone will make a remark that makes you think and take notice.

I will admit that somedays, okay perhaps a bit more often as of late,  I feel frustrated with/at “work.

My job can be stressful for sure.

I think that a great many people are under stress these days and I am not alone, for sure.

So as, with most people there is that frustration whether it is because the workload is daunting and never ending.

Or office politics.

Whatever it may be ….. it does have an effect on us all.

 

But at the end of the day it is the work that keeps one employed.

I have never turned away from work and most of my jobs over the years have carried a substantial workload and that is okay with me.

Sometimes it is just a combination of things.

So time to perhaps change things up a bit …..

This morning when I walk through the door at my employment; I will be me once again.

Back to the kinder, gentler, less stressed, less frustrated and more sympathetic ME.

Take things in stride and have patience.

Do not sweat the small stuff.

Remembering that it is okay not to be SUPER WOMAN each and everyday.

 

Outside of work I am that kind, gentle, easygoing, happy person.

I, as with everyone on the planet has bad days even at home but on a whole I am a good, happy, hard working gal.

Just somehow it changes when I go to work and not everyday for sure but somedays.

 

Special Hello to:  All those folks who work outside the home …..

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day …….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 31st day of March, 2016.

Oh, the last day of March.

Guess what?

You will never guess what?

It was pouring rain here last night.

Cannot believe it …. March and RAIN.

 

SPECIAL FRIEND

People appear in your life day in day out.

Some come to stay while others come and go.

Some people you might have an instant connection with and others may not.

Some people you may be friendly with others become dear pals.

I have know “V” for many years.

We were friendly to each other and had a connection through our place of employment and also a family member on her side.

But it was not until I moved away to another city that we truly became good friends.

We keep in touch via social media.

She is one of those people that has a special and rare gift.

She is most kind and generous.

She is intelligent and hard-working.

She has a great sense of humour and perfect timing.

Yesterday I received an email via Facebook from my friend.

It read “CHECK YOUR MAILBOX.”

My heart jumped for joy.

I have come to realize that can only mean – good things.

But over the course of the day I had forgotten about the message.

Home after work – out for a walk with Alvin.

We stopped at the mailboxes.

It was not until I saw the special red mail key that I did my happy dance.

When I opened the mailbox there was a huge parcel inside.

We ran home ….

This friend had sent me some homemade goodies and chocolate from the REGINA EASTER BUNNY.

Complete with a card from the Easter Bunny apologizing for being late.

How cool is this friend.

Friends come and go but this one will stay.

How do I know?

Because she is kind and kindness always remains.

Thank you my friend.

P.S. the rice treat or Easter Bark as it is named was so GOOD.

 

Have a wonderful day everyone.

A poem for my friend.

Special Hello to: my friend “V” back in Regina ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

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

This is my “777th” THOUGHT FOR THE DAY and my LUCKY NUMBER SEQUENCE.

Wow, 16 sleeps till Christmas.

The mall was so busy yesterday …… I cannot believe how many people are out and about.

Just wondering if anyone makes anything anymore or just does something nice for someone.

Like cooking them a nice supper or perhaps offering to shovel their sidewalks for the winter.

So many wonderful things you can do for someone other than buying the stores out.

I think it is nice to buy something that someone would like but it is even better when someone puts thought and consideration into the gift.

Always good to mix it up ….

Buy things as it keeps me and so many others with employment.

Also make things ….. from the heart is always a good choice.

So on this Monday …… just remember to send a thoughtful card and letter to a friend or relative.

Cards and letters are so nice to receive.

I always look forward to them.

So on this Monday write that letter …..

Special Hello to: all my friends who live hundreds of miles away …. miss you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

So
