Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 19th day of August, 2013.

It always surprises me by how quickly it goes from being light and sunny at 5:00 to being completely dark at that time.

It is just after 6:00 a.m. and the sky is beginning to show signs of sunrise.

Both the beginning of the day and the ending of each one are so dramatically gorgeous.

They start with fantastic coloration and end the same.

I guess it is up to us to keep the colour flowing throughout the course of the day.

It is quite something when you think of what an amazing job “Mother Nature” does; but I believe that we are up for the challenge.

If you go to bed grateful and happy for all of the wonderful things in your life you will wake up that way.

So it is a good place to start, right?

When you get up in the morning even before your feet fit the floor …. say ” Good Morning” ……

Maybe it is to your pet who shares your bed or your significant other or perhaps you have the whole bed to yourself; whatever the case may be ….. say “Good Morning.”

Starting the day with a positive affirmation always makes a huge difference.

I always plant a smile on my face as well.

I imagine all of the people and things that I am grateful for in my life.

Try it ….

Lighten your morning and brighten your days.

Have a great one.

Thank you for reading my blog.

Special Hello to:  my fellow bloggers ….

Thought for the day…..

Good Monday Morning and Welcome to the 22nd day of April, 2013.

How are you doing this fine morning?

I am doing fantastic.

The sky is blue and the sun is rising and that is the best way to start the day.

I love this time of year …… it is the best.


So how is your closet cleaning coming?

To be honest I have not yet started ….. that will have to be done this week.

Did I procrastinate?  Perhaps a little.

Was I working and busy, yes I was.

Could I have still done it?


Are you hard on yourself when you do not accomplish everything on that big “TO DO LIST?”

I am sometimes …..

I have found that as I get older I am a little easier on my self when I do not do things to my standards, so to speak.

I think that is the case on most things in life.

We set goals and standards so high for ourselves that when we they are not reached we are highly disappointed or worse.

I say all we can do is the best we can do.

Whatever you do is the best for you.

If you accomplished some at your best that is awesome.

After all my 100% might be someone else’s 130% …. do you see?

I think we are all amazing beings.

Just remember to breathe and be your best self in every moment.

Most times it is enough ….. or at least it should be.

Well time to go and finish getting ready for work.

I took an extra few minutes on the sofa this morning.

Some mornings when the alarm goes off at 5:00 a.m. ….. it is just too early.

I should set it for a few minutes later.

Oh, I spoke with my best friend back in Regina last night and of course we got carried away …. I was up when I should have likely been in bed.

Forgive me …. yes, I do.

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: all the friends out there …. you guys rock.

Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Tuesday, July 10th, 2012.

Forecast is for another hot day but this morning is absolutely gorgeous.

I love the mornings with that tinge of coolness to the air.

Hey but hot is good, too.  Just have to temperate it with coolness.

Last night my Amanda had supper with me as her hubby had a boys night out supper.

So we had fun with the puppies and relaxing.

The puppies spent the night.

Thank goodness for A.C.  (air conditioning).

We, me and the puppies: Alvin, Elton and Penny were comfortable.

I thought that perhaps they would have me up but it was me that was wide awake at 4:45 a.m. this morning.

So that is the thought for the day….. if it is hot and you have air conditioning ….make certain that you share the “coolness” with others.

The sky is that breathtaking blue as the sun rises in the east.

OMG, so beautiful.  I love mornings.

Well the troops are getting restless …. so I should sign off and go tend to the “puppies” …..

I hope that you have a great day ….. keep cool….. no matter what you are doing.

Special Hello to:  my family both near and far….. LOVE YOU MUCH …….

Always, Carol, Alvin, Elton and Miss Penny (have to include everyone in the house) …..    🙂
