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 Wednesday the 30th day of March, 2016.

Second last day of this month …..

WOW.

I think that every month I am surprised when it is the last few days.

No surprise ……

I am grateful this morning to have wonderful family and friends.

I am grateful that our Elton is enjoying life with his Mom & Dad.

Oh and guess what on March 29th here in Edmonton it was 15 degrees celsius.

So beautiful.

 

The past few days perhaps even weeks my mind has turned to poetry.

I have written poems my whole life.

I am inspired by my family, people that I meet, and life.

I was thinking of some poetry that I wrote in High School and will have to find my book to reread them again.

Perhaps I will share some of them.

Here is another one ….. wow almost 26 years ago.

My how time flies.

 

LOVE

My heart is all aglow

With a feeling I don’t know.

Is it love?  Perhaps!

Who will know.

 

Tell me how it feels,

Tell me so I know,

Tell me is it love?

For surely I ¬†don’t know.

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: my family and friends …… love to you all.

Always, Carol and Alvin
