Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 9th day of July, 2016.

It is a bright and beautiful morning here in Edmonton.

Full of light and promise.

As things roll around in my brain all I can think of is: just take it one minute at a time.

Do the best in that minute and the next and the next.

All you have is that minute.

All we really have is that moment to shine or not.

Our strength and determination to get through those moments will carry us on.

Some moments we may have less strength and less determination than others but we will carry on.

Everyone has moments of utter glory and moments of utter dread.

I do not believe that there is one human being on this planet that has not experienced both glory and dread.

It may appear to those on the outside that some people may be only on a path of glory and joy but it is all relative.

What you feel is downright dreadful may not be to someone else.

So on this day ….. feel ….. eat ….. smile……be joyful……listen to music…….walk with your dog…..admire the roses……smell said roses……look up at the sky and see what you can see.

Enjoy your life.

Do what you can to enjoy your life.

I am going to a tea tasting at my Steeped Tea “leader’s house” with another consultant this morning.

What a great way to start the weekend.

Special Hello to: my family and friends all over the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 8th day of April, 2015.

Well I will admit that I am running a couple of minutes behind so this will be short.

Starting to get used to the new schedule.

Thought better try it before the kids move to their new house.

I will be leaving the house at 6:10 so that I can catch the bus and hopefully arrive at the office before 7:30 a.m.

This will be for a short time.

Then I will be able to leave about 6:30 a.m. for the office.

Which doesn’t seem like much but early in the morning 20 minutes, is 20 minutes.

Last night I signed up with my friend “G” for boot camp.

Every Tuesday night for eight weeks.

I knew that I was out of shape but it makes you realize just how “inactive” we really are in our day to day lives.

I feel good this morning other than tired …..

Perhaps tomorrow will be the telling story.

I break my time down into segments in the morning.

That way I know what needs to be done and how much time I have ….. seems to work.

The kids are home today as they go for the final walk through in their brand new house.

I am beyond excited to see the finished product.

Hopefully I can make it over before they get moved in ….. like to see it while it is empty.

Well I had better hop to it here.

I hope that you have an amazing Wednesday.

Remember to try something new ….. mine is the boot camp.

I did go once but never signed up for the class.

I am looking forward to finally getting my core back to it’s original glory.

Or at least have a core that works.

Special Hello to: my sister ….. I miss you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

This morning as the sun was coming up the sky was the most exquisite combination of pinks, yellows and “red”.

The moon was hanging up there “beaming” as always (on a clear day).

There were little if any outside sounds from the neighbourhood.

Only the sound of my heart beating and Alvin sloshing through the wet grass.

I think that I am in heaven.

So glorious.

It is those few moments each and every day that make one realize …

that life in all it’s glory …..

is clearly defined by those “tiny fractions of time” …. the ones where you are still in the moment ….

just enveloping it all…..

 

So from me to you ….. as always….

enjoy your day and those “tiny fractions of time”

 

Always, Carol
