Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 28th day of December, 2016.

Our weather has warmed yesterday and for today and the next few to follow.

 

My thoughts as of late are to all of those wonderful souls that have passed during this past year.

Some have been famous.

Some have been family.

Some have been friends.

Some you know and some you do not.

They made us laugh.

They shared their lives, their stories.

They will always be with us in the air that we breathe, and in all that surrounds us.

Their stories will continue in us.

To all of those who are missing your mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, friends, grandparents, beloved fur-babies: pups and kitties, you are in my thoughts.

I wrote this poem almost twenty years ago.

I would like to give this a tribute to all those wonderful spirits we have said goodbye to in 2016.

 

 

BEYOND THE SUNSET

The sun melts into hues of gold and pink,

as the sky darkens.

A peaceful sigh, as she closes her eyes.

She sees the roses in her garden.

The fragrance soft but strong in the air.

She sees her children and theirs.

She feels her husband’s touch.

She remembers times gone by.

It has been a great life!

She is not afraid,

The time has come.

The Lord extends his hand,

And she follows him home.

Thought for the day……

Welcome to Monday, January 30th, 2012 …

Almost one whole month into the New Year.

So how are things with you all?

Did you make resolutions or promises to yourself about breaking a “habit” or starting a new health care regime?

Or did you just say “to heck with it all” and just try each day to live your very best?

Personally, I just try to live my best life each day ….

Somedays I am more successful than others but all in all, I believe that I do quite well.

I have found that as much as I am a people pleaser ….. I will just say that I prefer to see my glass half full.

I wished that everyone saw their glass half full.

What a wonderful world it would be (I love that line ….. it’s from a old song)

Can you guess which song?

Unfortunately I can hear the words in my head ….. but the name of the song eludes me.

So back to the topic ( see how easily I get sidetracked) …… well at 6:15 a.m. …… it is easy to do that…..  🙂

I am going to keep working on keeping that glass half full and perhaps even one day it will be full to the top or overflowing …..

I guess really it is getting close ….. I have a great life ….. I have my Alvin, my dog  (great companion and has a great personality) ….. I have a wonderful family and great friends.

I have my own home/house, something that I have dreamed of my whole life…… now when I want to paint ….. I can paint until the cows come home…. LOL.

I am in great health, I am pursuing my passions, and hope to make them more dominant in my life in due course (sooner than soon, would be great).

Most days I am very happy …… joyful, even…  I can see a little patch of heaven from my back porch when the skies are clear with twinkling stars and that beautiful moon…

So I am very blessed.

Always remember to take the time and make a list of the things that you love/ are passionate about, ….. and check off the ones that you have or are working towards.

So I hope that you have a “glass half full” kind of day and I wish you that in your life, always.

Happy Monday.

Special Hello:  to all those who really would like to have their glass half full …… just believe, and send positive energy outwards …….

 

Always, Carol

Thought for the day……

Good Monday, January 16th, 2012 morning ……

Alvin is sitting by the office door and making little squeaky / whiny noises ….. I sure wished that he could talk…..

I do not know what he needs…..

I guess he wanted up in my lap…..

By a few little noises and movements …. we figured it out.

There are many times that I wished that he could talk.

I wonder what he would say?

Would he think that I was good to him?

Or would he think that I wished you were home more.

Or perhaps that he was happy and has such a great life.

Maybe he would like more bananas in the morning or broccoli at supper time.

I would like to think that he is happy living here with me….

I love this little guy so much and he is such a great companion.

Perhaps someday I will understand his “language” and that would be great.

If only there were classes one could take to understand “the language of dogs” …..

Special Hello to:  all the four-legged companions of the world …. we love you.

Always, Carol
