Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 30th day of July, 2018.

Another HOT one on the way.

So glad that we got up extra early yesterday and had a walk and got our chores done before it started to get too hot to work.

Windows open to cool house off for Alvin for the day.

Glad we went for a walk earlier this morning – it was so nice and cool.

Too bad one could not bottle that cool air and release it into the house.

 

Somedays a poem is just right.

 

IN YOUR HEART

 

In your heart lies the secret to your life.

In your heart lies the beat to every song and every dance.

In your heart lies the dreams for the future, and the ones forgotten.

In your heart lies every moment, every tear, every bout of laughter, every everything.

In your heart lies the gold that shines in the sunlight.

In your heart are the stars that shine like diamonds, blinding in the night.

In your heart is the strength to go where your body must follow.

In your heart is the soul that reminds you to live, love and laugh.

In your heart is mine beating like a reminder to all that we shared.

In your heart ……

In your heart I long to be…

In your heart I wonder…

In your heart I hear…

In your heart I feel….

In your heart I live, I love and I remember.

In your heart, for my heart.

My soul I do surrender.

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 27th day of April, 2016.

Here we are winding down another month … the fourth of 2016.

It is just after 6:00 a.m. here in Edmonton and the sun is already beginning to rise.

Soon it will be up when we get up about 5:00 a.m.

 

I have been away sick for the last couple of days but am better.

Also good news on the grand-puppy “Elton” front – surgery was successful.

I am grateful for all of the prayers and positive energy from friends and family.

Thank you.

What a relief.

 

Sometimes just when you think that nothing will go right and you are nearing the end of your positive energy …. something GREAT happens to restore your faith.

I guess it was there all along but lately I honestly had given up.

But things are going once again in the right direction.

Reminder to us all – never give up, ever.

Always be grateful and live in the moment.

 

Well after sleeping for the better part of two days … I did not sleep much last night.

Mr. Alvin had an upset tummy just before bed and I could not settle down.

Is there such a thing as too much sleep?

I guess so.

 

Well I guess I had better get this show on the road.

After losing our routine for two days time to get it back.

Life is gaining momentum once again in the right direction.

I am so so grateful.

 

Have the most wonderful Wednesday and I hope that life is treating you well.

Just remember “never give up.”

 

Special Hello to: all those people …. well to everyone …. HELLO ….

Always, Carol and Alvin

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 Sunday the 7th day of September, 2014.

The sky is a bit overcast but the sun keeps peeking out from time to time and there is a bit of a breeze.

There is that coolness to the air that this time of year brings but yet it is warm and comfortable.

I think this is the favourite season for women over a certain age.

Well at least it is for me.

I love the change in temperature, the colour changes to the trees and foliage.

I love that in between time …..

The time we go from flowers in bloom with all the patio/deck furniture out and enjoying that cup of coffee in the sunshine on a weekend morning to a bare deck but sitting on the chair no flowers still enjoying that cup of coffee.

From wearing shorts and a t-shirt to wearing long pants, t-shirt and sweater.

From sandals to sandals because there is no snow yet….

I love summer do not get me wrong but there is something about cleaning out the flower pots and putting away the patio furniture and putting away the summer things.

There just is.

I cannot place my finger on it …… but I guess maybe if I had to guess it would be a strange clean/tidy as Mother Nature prepares us for winter …..

Anyway now most of my flowers not all are ready to have the pots cleaned out ….. I have a few that are still blooming nicely …. might as well keep them out as long as they are looking good.

Even Alvin is preparing for winter …. I can tell his coat is getting thicker … if that is possible.

Well all thoughts today are to preparing for the next season …..

All thoughts are looking forward to the colour scheme that is coming and in some cases arrived.

I hope that you had a great weekend.

Mine was excellent.

Got lots done with the help of my kids …..

I spoke to a close friend of mine and although she had some bad news I just know in my heart that everything will work out.

Keep her in your prayers.

I am surrounding her with good and positive healing energy …. cannot hurt.

AS I do with  all family and friends and anyone I know that needs some extra goodness ….. good thoughts always.

Special Hello to: all my girlfriends back in Regina …. sure do miss you all and our getting together for coffee…… hopefully one of these times soon I can come and we can all get together for COFFEE.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 6th day of July, 2014.

The past two evenings just about the time that I have gone to bed …. the sky begins to light up and the thunder roars.

The wind gets up and then the rain comes down.

Mother Nature sure put on quite the light show last night.

I was very proud of Alvin ….. he did not seem to be bothered by all of the commotion.

I am very lucky as storms do not frighten me although sometimes the end result sure can be disheartening.

I know that some of my friends and family back in Saskatchewan are still dealing with the flooding from the storms of about a week ago.

My heart and prayers go out to them.

Also my thanks to all those people who have gone to help.

This morning the air is cool and it is windy.

Sky overcast looking like more rain for the forecast.

I am just having some oatmeal before I get ready to go to work at the store.

With the sky being overcast it looks like the store will be busy and also today is the last day of our semi-annual sale.

So we will be busy.

I hope that you had a great weekend.

I feel so great that with my daughter’s help we cleaned out “eight” rubbermaid containers from the basement.

Two huge black garbage bags out of the house.

YAY.  Am feeling pretty light this morning.

Good reminder to us all whenever you see someone in need – stop and help.

If there is anyway to help someone – do it.

We need to be better global neighbours.

Happy Sunday All.

Special Hello to: Saskatchewan, my old home province.

Always, Carol and Alvin
