Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 6th day of August, 2013.

Wow at 5:00 a.m. this morning it was still dark out and by 5:30 the sky started to lighten and now at 6:20 the sun is rising.

It is going to be a beautiful day here in Edmonton.

I had a great long weekend.

My daughter and I worked on our jewellery and between us both we made 15 necklaces and two pair of earrings.

So rewarding to do something you love with someone you love.

Double gratification.

I cannot stress how important it is to find your passion and go after it.

Doesn’t matter what it is …. just do it.

If you love looking at the stars, then do it.

If you love reading one new book each month, then do it.

If you love animals volunteer at the local Human Society.

If you love children volunteer at your local hospital.

If you love creating …. then make something.

Doesn’t matter what it is…. just do it.

So on this wonderful Tuesday ….. I almost said Monday …. ENJOY.

Special Hello to:  all those people who go after their dreams …… thank you.


Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S. I set up a separate post for the story that I am creating day by day.  It will be reposted each day that I write with one new line.  It is so much fun never knowing where it will go.

Good Wednesday Morning and Welcome to the 10th day of April 2013.

How are you this fine morning?

I am doing fantastic.

Today I would like to charge you with a mission to give back to your community.

I know this is a strong statement but I feel over the couple of decades we have lost our sense of community.

This does not mean that you have “less than nice” neighbours.

I mean with regard to helping a stranger, picking up trash outside your “home boundaries”, perhaps donating some of your  time to a library or hospital or an animal shelter.

There are so many things that we can do to help out.

Doesn’t mean we have to spend a billion dollars to do so.

Can you imagine what our world, our beautiful blue/green Earth would be like if WE ALL HELPED ONE ANOTHER.

So on this mid week day I would ask kindly that you all take a few minutes and do something to help your neighbour, a stranger ….. someone outside your boundaries.

Thank you so much.  I appreciate this.

Have a wonderful day.

Spread the joy and kindness.

We all reap what we sow.

Special Hello to:  VOLUNTEERS …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Welcome to Friday, January 13th, 2012 …..

Today is a special day as my youngest brother celebrates his 47th Birthday.  So Happy Birthday Little Brother …… I hope that you have the greatest day.

Also this morning Mr. Alvin decided to change our morning routine up a bit.  As I was getting my notebook and pen – Alvin was rummaging around in his toy box.  His toy box is a small rubbermaid container  which lays on it’s side so that he can get things out.

When I was ready to sit down at the table to start writing which is the point where I pick him up, and place him on my lap – he comes over with his snowball in his mouth, ready to play.  So I figured what the hay …… so we played “fetch” for a few minutes.  Very cute ….. playing is always on his terms.  When he is ready to stop …. he stops.  No loud parade …. he just walks away.

So two things today …… Happy Birthday to my brother.  I so remember when he was born.  I do not remember the day that he came home from the hospital, but I do remember him as a baby.  Giving him his bottle and changing diapers, I was all of eight.  He was my dolly, a real life doll.  He was a pretty good baby and got lots of attention from his four siblings.  He always followed his older sisters around, and although there was only one year between the three boys …. he spent most of his time with us.  We played a lot of school and used our imaginations daily.  So have a great day …… there in Calgary.

Special Hello: to all of those lucky people to be born on this day ….. Happy Birthday.

Always, Carol
