Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 1st day of June, 2018.

First day of June.

June showers bring July flowers.

We are having a nice rain shower at this very moment.

It has been raining since we first got out of bed.

The trees and grass are now glorious shades of green and the flowers are looking amazing.

It is a bit on the cool side in the house these past few mornings but the “summer” heat will return soon enough.

Alvin is back on the blue blanket once again.

It has become a routine.

He has always liked to be right close to me.

Definitely a Momma’s Boy, for sure.

…………………………………………………….

June 1st, last year.  I always like to check out what was going on.

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 1st day of June, 2017.

The skies are overcast and the wind is blowing here in Edmonton.

It is a refreshing morning.

Alvin and I both had an off night and were up and down but at the end of it all are okay.

Not sure what hit us …..

But not serious ….. might have just been heat and humidity.

I am running late as I semi slept in so I will just share a cute story from my bus ride home last night.

There always seems to be something happening on the bus so I am just start riding regularly about those experiences.

BUS RIDE STORY:

Tonight on the bus ride home – there was a Mom and three small children.

The older boy who was likely six asked his Mom this question:

“Who controls the rain GOD or SATAN?

Best question ever.

I had to smile to myself.

It definitely made the stuffed into the bus like sardine trip easier to take. STILL SMILING……

By the way I did not hear what the Mother replied.

…………………………………………………..

I will always love that Bus Ride Story and just had to share it once again.

Well time for me to go.

Guess June 1st carries forward some aspects from year to year.

I am running just a tad late same as last year.

Time to go.

Have an awesome day.

Remember to LISTEN as you never know what you will hear.

The Bus Story still brings a smile to my face.

Children are the best.

Okay, sorry Mr. Alvin ….. second best.

Smiling away as I key these words.

 

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who bring a smile to our faces everyday.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday, the 24th day of September, 2013.

Last night it was raining and even “thunder” or at least it sounded like it.

Alvin and I had a quiet evening watching some of the new shows on television.

It was nice to relax after supper, dishes and a few chores.

Work was busy but then again it always seems to be busy.

How was your Monday?

Yesterday at my lunch break I was reading some of the inspirational stories that are published on “The Secret” website.

I am always inspired to be a better me after reading them.

I consider myself a work in progress.

Perfection is in the eyes of the beholder and perhaps only a wish away.

So SMILE ….. LISTEN …… be KIND.

Sometimes being the best you is just listening to someone tell everything that they are experiencing,  with you just lending your ear and the odd acknowledgment that you are there.

I did that yesterday at work…… being able to listen is a good thing – actually a great thing.

So on this Tuesday …… practice “listening” …….

Thank you.

Special Hello to: all those folks who stop and listen

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day.

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday, the 18th day of July 2013.

How are you doing this morning?

I am doing great.

Been thinking a lot about my thoughts over the course of any given day.

Isn’t it strange how you can be feeling wonderful and having great thoughts and then everything get all mumbled and jumbled up?

Sometimes it is where you are and what you are doing?

No matter how positive and how many good feelings it is hard to remain in that mode.

I know this is kind of jumbled this morning but truly I am feeling “jumbled” this morning.

The sun is shining and I even saw a bunny sitting on our lawn this morning just licking his face.

It made me think of things.

I was dreaming lots and perhaps even over thinking.

Anyway, that is it.

Just have to do what I say and say what I mean.

I strive to be the best person that I can be.

I truly love people and want to be thought of in that light.

I hope that you have a great day and understand what I am trying to say.

Life is always easy and all you can do is try to be the best you can be in every moment.

That is what I am going to do today.

Moment by moment.

Time to go to work.

Thanks for listening.

Special Hello to: all those people who try each day ….. keep the faith.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
