Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 10th day of November, 2015.

Remembering my brother today on what would have been his 52nd Birthday.

Happy Birthday dear one……

 

Tomorrow is Remembrance Day ….. this week is all about remembering.

Memories of loved ones.

Many of whom passed way before they even had a chance to live.

 

I think of all those young men and women who entering the military thinking of adventure and of serving their country.

Likely they did both although I am certain the adventure part was not what they had in mind.

So this week you are all in my heart, thoughts and prayers.

To their families who miss them every day of every year, you are also in my heart, thoughts and prayers.

 

Thank you.  Thank you. Thank you.

 

Special Hello to: all those who gave their lives to keep us free.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 6th day of October, 2015.

What a gorgeous evening last night …. slight chill to the air but beautiful nonetheless.

Alvin and I thoroughly enjoyed our walk.

 

I had quite the surprise as I approached our house last night after work.

Remember how I did all of the yard work yesterday …..

Well pretty much all of the leaves that were not on the ground on Sunday, were on the ground yesterday …..

Covering the grass in a warm yellow blanket.

Very pretty.

I will admit that I did figure that there would be one or two more raking sessions left to do before the end of fall.

 

I am so grateful to live in this great country.

I am so grateful to live in this great city.

I am so grateful to live in this great neighbourhood.

Where we from all NATIONS live in peace and harmony.

No matter what stories circulate about …… we live in the best country on the planet.

My only hope is that we always remember this, and that it continues forever.

 

Last night while out walking (was with one of my neighbours and her Jasmine) and almost home we saw this beautiful animal and his young “guide.”

A couple of nights before I thought that I remembered seeing this beautiful dog out with an older man (was the young man’s Father, we found out).

I say guide because owner makes me cringe.

Anyway the dog is special.

At 12 weeks he is more than twice as tall as Alvin and still growing.

He is a Romanian Shepherd and brought here by his now Romanian Family.

We all need each other whether two or four-legged.

We learned more about another family.

Thank you.

 

Well looking like once again it is time to leave to catch that old bus to work.

Actually the bus is not old.  Smiling as I think that ……

 

Have a glorious day.

Remember that we are all in this together.

If we treat each other with kindness and respect it is only an even better place to live.

Special Hello to: all those people that I have met and who have taught me so much.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 24th day of January, 2015.

It is a glorious morning here in my bedroom in the city of Edmonton in the province of Alberta in the country of Canada.

The sky is a beautiful clear blue and the sun is SHINING.

I have something very cool to tell you.

Last night I worked at the store.

I had the best time as usual.

So much fun.

Even saw a couple of our regular customers (after awhile you get to know some people).

The nicest couple on the planet.

It was a great night.

So when I left the store about 9:20 to go and catch the bus …

what do you think happened as I left the mall?

You might think that January in Alberta it might be snowing.

You might think that January in Alberta it might be blowing and snowing.

You might think that January in Alberta the temperature might have taken a quick nose dive and be very COLD.

But you never and I mean pretty much never would go outside to …..

POURING RAIN ……YES, IT WAS POURING RAIN ….

Like the rain we get in the summer time.

It was warm and raining …..

So on my walk home from the bus stop to my house was a bit tricky.

I walked very slowly and carefully.

The streets were a mess.

SNOW …. ICE AND POOLS OF WATER.

Some from the warm temperature and it has been melting and from the rain.

There were spots that looked dried but was “black ice” and a few times I almost took a fall but manager to arrive safe and sound.

What a great place to live.

Supposed to be warm today so more will melt.

I think we need the streets scraped.

Well time to get this Saturday rolling ….

Big plans: LAUNDRY, Alvin needs a hair cut and bath (he is looking like the SHAGGY D.A. from the Disney movie) and miscellaneous other things.

So I hope that you have a great Saturday.

Always remember to take some time to relax and have that cup of coffee or tea or lemonade.

Be kind.

Pass out compliments and be polite.

We need to be better “neighbours” to each other on this planet.

Also big one: be kind and respectful to all of the other inhabitants on this planet.

Our dogs, our cats, our wildlife …… how would you like to be kicked or thrown about all for being you.

 

Special Hello to: everyone who is respectful and kind …. let us show everyone how it is done.  Shine your light.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 15th day of October, 2014.

What a gorgeous day yesterday was …… sunny and warm.

Alvin and I enjoyed a lovely walk around the lakes in our neighbourhood.

So wonderful and peace.

That is what we all need is peace.

Peace in our relationships.

Peace in our place of employment.

Peace within ourselves.

Peace in our everyday lives.

There is so much chaos in our lives.

We need to find that peace.

We need to live that peace.

The peace is positive.

Positive is always good.

Last night that walk was just what the “Doctor” ordered.

Also I had a phone call from a dear old friend.

Someone I have known for over 40 years.

We shared current news.

We supported each other.

We laughed.

It is always good to have those conversations.

I felt so good after that call.

I would say that last night was a great evening.

So find that peace and live in it.

Have a great Wednesday.

Special Hello to: my all my friends new and old ….. you are the best.

Always, Carol and Alvin
