Thought for the day ……

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 29th day of April, 2016.

Wow, second last day of April left to enjoy.

I am so overjoyed to report that our beloved Elton went home with his Mom & Dad from the Hospital yesterday.

He continues to do better and better.

We thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers.

To everyone who aided in his care and surgery, there are no words other than THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.

You brought our little guy back home to his Mom & Dad where he belongs.

His time is not yet to leave them.

I am eternally grateful.

REMINDER:

( I guess I was under the weather last end of April as my blog went from the 27th to the 30th ….. as I did not wish to end the month before it did)

 

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 27th day of April, 2015.

I must tell you that there is nothing quite like pancakes with your daughter surrounded by our pups.

Good food …. excellent company ….. best Sunday ever.

The sun shone which is exactly what you would expect for this special day.

It was great.

I am so blessed to have such an amazing daughter.

She helped me set up a television in the basement (which they gave me).

Followed by finishing up some paperwork ….. the fun stuff, of course.

Then a trip to COSTCO.

Whoops, we knew when we hit the parking lot that it was busy.

Kudos to the staff at customer service (return) and to the check-out staff as they had things moving right along.

We got in and got out.

Successful trip …..

Followed by a glorious walk with me Alvin before supper.

Perfect day.

I guess my thoughts are all about the many blessings in my life.

If you just take a wee look about you will see that there is much to hold in gratitude.

Make that list.

Each day alive is a blessing.

Do the things you are passionate about and surround yourself with the ones you love.

Then life is perfect….or very close.

Your perfection is your perfection.

Not anyones’ but yours.

Happy Monday everyone.

Well almost time to grab that stuff and snuggle with me Alvin for a couple of minutes before heading out the door.

Special Hello to: all my friends all over the world …. thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 7th day of November, 2013 and my  ” 1,000th” BLOG.

I cannot believe it.

Sometimes all you have to do is “start” and the rest is history……

I did not think when I started to write this blog in April of 2010 that I would some day be celebrating my “1,000th” blog.

This has been such an adventure for me.

There is so much that I want to say and do via this forum and I am doing it one day at a time.

Another milestone for me is actually following through with a story.

My idea to write one line per day a feature on this blog has been such an incredible joy for me.

I have always since a young girl wanted to be a published writer.

I will say that writing one line per day without no contemplation or editing has been a bit of a challenge.

Sometimes I think the story is going slowly and other times not so.

But it is mine and I am proud.

Someday my dream of promoting a book on the “TODAY SHOW” will be a reality.

Perhaps sooner than later.

All in good time, I suppose.

So on this terrific Thursday as I celebrate my accomplishment, I give thanks to all those folks who have taken the time to check in with me and read what I have written.

Truly “thank you” is not enough but alas it will have to suffice for now.

We should all celebrate our lives, our accomplishments no matter the size.

For in our hearts we are all celebrity and deserve our time on the “stage.”

Take care this day and have a great one.

I wanted to mention this because it is important.

This morning about 5:15 a.m. I called our “311” number to check on the time that I need to catch the bus this morning (usually carpool).

The 311 operator that answered and identified herself as Josephine and asked how she could help me.

I gave her the info and she gave me the time.

She was so professional, friendly and cheery for that time of day.

It is a reminder that we all do not work regular business hours, and when she was so happy and well NICE,  so early in the morning it gave me new found energy.

Thank you Miss Josephine.  I am going to contact her Manager and give her KUDOS.  She is very deserving.

Always, Carol and Alvin
