Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 19th day of June, 2016.

The sky is a mix of clouds and sunshine.

Today marks “Father’s Day” here in Canada and the United States.

Happy Father’s Day to all those Dad everywhere.

Thank you for watching over your families and for being supportive.

Thank you for everything you do …. from tying shoe laces to reading bedtime stories to teaching us to drive a motor vehicle.

 

I was just thinking a few minutes ago about Alvin and that he will never have his own family.

We took that from him.

Our hearts and minds were in the right place or that is what we think.

I will admit that I never thought of things from that perspective.

Most dogs when they mate do not stay together anyway because of us.

I know most times there is  legitimate reasoning behind why they do not mate and have the babies together.

But it is sad.

Most animals in the wild stay together.

The male watches over the female and the young ones.

Hunting and protecting.

Just makes me sad that he will never have his own little boy to play with ….

Perhaps that is why most dogs treat the young ones differently than the ones there age or older.

Well food for thought.

 

Wishing every male on the planet a “Happy Father’s Day” whether you have procreated or not.

I am certain that most males at one point during their lifetime have been protective or helped a young one.

So on that basis I wish you all a Happy Father’s Day.

After all, we should be thinking about this earth as a community, and should be helping each other and every inhabitant, every living creature along the way.

We share this place.

We share this place together.

 

Well time to go and start making pancakes as my daughter is coming for a visit.

I think it is a good time to make pancakes for her visit.

 

Have a great day everyone ….

 

Special Hello to: ¬†all the Dad’s out there … wherever you may be.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 7th day of January, 2016.

The past couple of days I have been home sick and am going to work today.

Still not feeling 100% but have to get back to work.

 

How has the world been the past couple of days?

I know that shots were fired in my daughter’s neighbourhood the day before last.

They are okay – thank goodness.

 

This whole mixed up world.

What is happening?

Why are we where we are?

Is anyone asking this question?

Does anyone care?

Is it because of man’s never ending need to be the most powerful / the richest?

Is it because we cannot stand to see someone else with more than us?

Is it because we never completely found compassion for one another?

Is it because we are never satisfied?

The list of questions could go on and on and I have to go to work but perhaps you see my point.

 

I have always tried to be kind and 98% of the time successful, I believe.

Is this a male / female thing?

I do not know.

But something has to change before we destroy ourselves and this beautiful gem in the universe.

Just feeling a little sad this morning ….. perhaps because I am not at my best …. it has me in reflection mode.

But I hope that one by one we can see the light and change things before it is too late.

Please go out of your way to be kind …. to help each other …..

Forget thinking that someone else will stop and help that person in need ….. it has to be you.

You are that person….

You must stop.

If we continue to pass by …. then we will not have learned perhaps the most important lesson of all …..

Compassion for those in need.

To help each other ….. to have community.

Without compassion there is no love.

Without compassion there is no kindness.

Without compassion there is …..

 

I hope that you have a wonderful day ….

Everything starts with you and me.

Special Hello to: my family and friends.

Always, Carol and Alvin
