Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 5th day of November, 2014.

I am back after being sick for the past couple of days.

So great to be feeling better.

I had a surprise phone call from my sister last night letting me know that she is coming for a visit this weekend.

Crazy …… now that is such a great surprise.

We have been having such wonderful weather here in Edmonton.

I hope that it will stay for a few more weeks.

Perfect weather for someone to travel.

How are you all doing this morning?

Can you believe that only two more days and we are finished one whole week in November?

I did put my tree up on the weekend and we did get the front of the house decorated which was great.

Next Christmas cards and a bit of baking.

I have to sit down and draw up my Christmas card list and then set to work on drafting my Christmas letter.

This has been an eventful year chalked full of news.

Do you send out cards for the holidays?

I always enjoy receiving a card and letter.

Most especially the letter …..

It always makes me feel wonderful and warm inside….

I am always grateful that someone took the time to write up a letter and pick up a stamp and mail it.

Now that all takes time and how great for us that people do this.

I wished that people sent more letters.

How about this holiday season ….. even if you have never sent a card and letter ….. that you do it.

You will make someone so happy.

Give it a whirl ……. you never know ….. you might like it and keep up the tradition.

Thank you.

Special Hello to: my sister …..

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day……..

Wow, what a beautiful August morning.  The sky is such a pretty blue and the sun is coming up on the horizon.

My life is great.  I had the best birthday yesterday.  Thank you to all my family & friends who are my family, too.

You know you are blessed and lucky when:

…. your seven year old friend calls from Quebec to wish you a Happy Birthday before you leave for work in the morning (that’s early)

…..your friends and family send you best wishes via phone, e-mail, the mail and Facebook

…..your daughter and son-in-law prepare you a yummy supper followed by a super delicious chocolate birthday cake

…..your neighbours decorate your front porch with balloons, streamers and a birthday banner and birthday wishes  written in coloured chalk down the front sidewalk and gifts inside the house

I am so incredibly blessed.

…..the best gift of all was that my dog Alvin was at the door when I arrived home to greet me ….. with kisses and lots of love.

I always think that it is so cute.  Those first 20 seconds after I unlock the front door,  he rushes to greet me, wagging his little tail, he is so excited he knows he has to pee, he wants to give me love and attention

but he is also hungry, he stops between the back door at the pantry for just a second.  He’s back and forth for those seconds …… I guess I would be confused as well (or perhaps I am a bit) LOL.

Thought for this day is:  be grateful for the blessings in your life each and everyday.  There is always something to be thankful for ….. clean water to drink, food in the fridge, family, your dog or cat, friends, the air that you breathe, the fact that you can breathe everyday is always super good.

Have a great Wednesday everyone.

Always, Carol
