Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 3rd day of March, 2015.

So excited as I get to see my nephew “J” this morning.

I haven’t seen him since Christmas.

He is now awake and has been since he went to the hospital near his hometown.

This morning he is being transferred to one of our best rehab facilities for brain injuries where he will begin his long journey home.

He has to learn how to eat and dress himself; virtually all of the life skills that we take for granted.

His brother assures me that his memory is intact and that he just has to learn how to get the sounds out.

Even when he laughs you cannot hear a sound.

He gets very frustrated.

Anyway I have to get ready for our trip.

This place is about one hour from Edmonton but several hours from his brother and his mom.

It is now light when we leave for work in the morning and I hear that the clocks turn forward on Sunday morning.

YAY …. spring is here.

Well time to go and eat and perhaps have a cup of coffee before my nephew picks me up.

Have a great day.

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 30th and last day of April, 2014.

Whoa where did April go?

It was an interesting April of 2014, I shall say.

We are grateful that here in Edmonton are skies are bright and blue as the sun rises in the east.

We hope that the snow that has fallen to the east melts quickly and that our neighbours in Saskatchewan and eastward have our weather soon.

Thank you.

Mr. Alvin came in to take a look and sniff at me as this morning I decided to wear a “skirt.”

This is not an usually sight in my house.

In fact, this is the first bare legs I have had since last summer.

Feels good to not have material covering my skin although my skirt is longer.

I am so happy is we are just about to touch “summer.”

Although you know that spring is my favourite season; summer and fall come in a close second.

I also do not mind winter.

I guess I am a all season lover.

Lover of all seasons.

You always have to take it all to appreciate the high points.

That is life.

So on this last day of April – let us be grateful that:

– we are alive

– we have food in the fridge

– we are surrounded by family and friends

– we are surrounded by love and laughter

– we have blessings in all shapes and sizes

– we can hear the clock ticking

– we can taste that good food in the fridge

– we can smell the fresh air

– we can see the bright blue sky and that perfect sunrise

– we can walk to the mailbox

– we can buy that cup of coffee on the way to work

– we can talk and communicate

– we have each other.

Have a great day.

Special Hello to: all those amazing human beings that read my blog and every blog ….. thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day

Sometimes the direction is not clear, ¬†and then all of a sudden you hear something and the light comes on …… the way is more clear and you are ready to go.

I had a stand still point last night, and now this morning, my direction is clear and my focus sharp.

Time to carry on……
