Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday, the 8th day of July, 2013.


Sun coming up.

The mist rising off the water nearly covering the flock of geese as they slowly made their way from one side to the other.

You could hear peeps from the baby goslings and see varying sizes of them amongst the elder geese.

The air comfortable for our walk.

Alvin stopping frequently to sniff something buried from sight.

The fragrance of the roses fills my senses, and enters my body.

My mind wonders as we stroll.

I smile, and feel an incredible sense of happiness.

Now on our way home ….. this morning.


Well time to go back to work ….. I am so grateful that the end of my vacation had me feeling healthy once again.

On Saturday night after Alvin and I had returned home from our walk … I noticed a huge beautiful dragonfly resting on the wreath of flowers on our front door.

At first I feared that it might not be alive but then I very gently touched it and it moved ….

I love dragonflies …. they are my favourite creatures other than my Alvin and grand-puppies of course.

It looked so regal on the wreath.

I let Alvin into the house and very gingerly lifted the dragonfly up and moved it from the front door to my flowers in the backyard.

It rested for a moment and then very gracefully flew up and around me and then away.

I am always grateful to see dragonflies.

They restore my faith that things will work out for the best.

I also saw one on television in the most unlikely of shows.

So it was my day for faith and healing.

As always, I am grateful to be alive and for all the many blessings that surround me.

Special Hello to: YOU

Always, Carol and Alvin
