Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday, the 13th day of March, 2014.

YAY, it is Thursday.

So happy for Thursday …..

Tomorrow is my day off from the office and the store.

So exciting to have two days off in a row.

I have lots to do ….. will start the day with coffee with my friend who leaves for Hawaii on Saturday.

Lucky girl.  So happy for her and her family.  A great trip.  Someday I will visit there.  It is on my “bucket list.”

Then working on the preparations for the Trade Show next Saturday.

We, Dear Stella Jewellery ….. (my daughter and I make jewellery in our spare time).  We rented a table.  First time.

I am nervous but excited.

Also, me and Alvin are hosting a birthday supper for my daughter, his sister Friday night.

Alvin needs a hair cut …..  the laundry ….. stuff ….  there will be time to kick back and watch a movie or three.

What do you do on your days off?

Are you grateful that you get time off from work?

Most people do not even think of anything different.

I know a girl that happens to work two full-time jobs ….. 80 hours a week.

She works 7 days a week.

I admire her ….. and I am grateful that my two jobs total on average 50-55 hours per week.

I know that there are so many people out there who do not have the luxury of working only a 40 hour week with weekends off.

These days most people need at least two jobs to pay the bills.

I remember reading over the years …. especially just before the new millennium arrived that we would all be working shortened work weeks and have more time to relax and be with family.

Well that never happened and in fact, I would say it has lengthened.

Too bad.

Pension plans have all been hit by the economy and by bad management.

So whenever you have time away from work ….. be grateful ….. always take some time to relax and have fun with your family.

I hope that you all have an amazing THURSDAY.

I am so looking forward to today, tomorrow and the next.

Thank you for reading.

Special Hello to:  all those who realize that gratitude does make a difference.

Always, Carol and Alvin
