Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 3rd day of October, 2015.

It is overcast and windy here in Edmonton.

Just a few minutes ago my cousin left for home.

We had a wonderful evening.

Short but so great.

I was reminded over the course of the evening and this morning on how much I miss our conversations.

She is such a well read and good thinking person.

With common sense and logic.

I have always valued our talks and have learned so much from her.

Sometimes in our everyday lives we forget the importance of good conversations.

You know the proper exchange of information and opinion.

No one being right.

No one being wrong.

Just good talk ….

There are no words to express how much I needed that conversation at this point in my life.

In today’s world we read what is posted on multi-media, and then react.

Sometimes it is a positive experience and sometimes, less than.

I like the back and forth ….. the “Ying” and “Yang” of conversation.

Now, I know as I love to write that we express in words both our feelings and opinions otherwise there would not be books.

But somehow the art of conversation seems to have gone by the wayside.

Or at least to what I have noticed.

So many people have cell phones and are busy checking info on the internet, posting on FB and such.

To talk face to face or hold a conversation has become “old school.”

Much like letter writing……

Okay I am definitely showing my age.

I just wanted to share my recent experience and to remind us all about how important it is to just talk.

So maybe on this Saturday you go and see your Grandmother or your Dad or a neighbour ….. have a cup of tea or coffee and just chat ….. about the world, about your flowers, about conversation.

Thank you cousin for bringing me some good information and breathing some fresh ideas into my conversation, and helping me to remember …. we are all humans living on this planet and all we want is to LIVE.

Sometimes a visit is so much more than just a visit.

This was the case.

I am so grateful to my cousin “J” …..

I feel my old self again …… by the way the play was well done, and having a late supper (after the play) and chatting till 2 a.m. priceless.  By the way it was super cool to be at the opening night for the 50th Anniversary of the Citadel.

Thank you.

On a fun note:  Alvin went for a sleepover to his sister’s house …… oh, how I miss my boy…..he, as does his sister, brings me great joy and appreciation for life.

Happy Saturday ……. Enjoy.

Special Hello: to my cousin “J” …. safe trip home and thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 29th day of October, 2014.

Wow another glorious fall / autumn day.

Only two more sleeps until Halloween.

Still haven’t decided what to wear ….. I will dress up for the office and then change before heading to the store.

Always fun …..  any ideas???

Last night I had an update on my nephew, and he seems to be making some progress although still not out of coma.

My daughter and I are going up to the hospital this evening after work.

When I write on my blog in the mornings it is with careful eyes watching me, “ALVIN’S, of course.”

He always makes certain that he can see me …. when I am at home seldom am I out of his sight.

Even as human beings we like to have our space from our loved ones.

It appears not to be the case with this puppy “dog.”

He is definitely a “Momma’s Boy” and at home he goes from room to room with me.

There is a bond between me and Alvin that is strong as iron ….. I do not remember nor do I wish to remember what life was like before he entered my life.

I am so grateful for being in great health, for having employment, to have my bills paid every month, to have lots of food in the house, to be surrounded by loving family and friends, for telephones ( the ones that are portable but do not fit into your pocket), for time and energy.

So on this day I wish you grace and purpose, joy,abundance and love.

Keep dreaming and bring your dreams one step closer to fruition.

Special Hello to: family and friends

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Last night as I laid down to sleep …… I thought of something great to relate to you this morning on my blog.

But alas, my memory seems to be on “slow recall” and those favoured thoughts have faded somewhere in between going to sleep and my dreams.

I know that I was dreaming ….. but of what !!!

I do keep a pen and notebook in my night table.

So the thought for this day is …… when you are going to sleep and get a grand idea for the next day or whenever ….. WRITE IT DOWN.

Sometimes depending on memory when you are going to sleep can be ….. well you get the picture……

I truly wished that I could pull those grand thoughts to the forefront of my memory ….. use some magic trick to bring them forward.

Oh well, no use “going on about such things” …..

I hope that you have a blessed and grand FRIDAY.

May you receive something special ….. today…..just for you……something that you have been wishing for …. for a long time…..

Happy Friday….

Keep your thoughts good …. because your thoughts do become the things of your life.

I know this for sure…..

 

Always, Carol

 

P.S. Both Alvin and I slept until the alarm clock went off …… oh, I didn’t count the time that I got up (around 3:00 a.m.) to go to the little girl’s room.  LOL

Perhaps that was sharing too much.  But as you get older …. it happens….. O Happy Days…….

Thought for the day……

I am so excited about 2011.  Lots of ideas are floating around my head …… just have to grab them and get to work.

So the thought for this day is ……. take a chance……..you are a being of perfection …… you can do anything you chose…..

Remember to dream and go for it…….

Have a great 2011 ……. smile it is catching……..  🙂

Always, Carol
