Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 10th day of November, 2016.

Happy Birthday to my brother who rests with the angels, he would have been 53 today.

Gone but not forgotten.

 

The mornings are now dark until I am at work.

It is dark now as I walk home from the bus after work.

Up in the dark and down in the dark.

It is that time of year.

Our walk last night was so beautiful.

I wore a long sleeved t-shirt and a vest instead of a jacket and was plenty warm.

 

Perhaps you are feeling a little blah today with everything that is going on around the world and in your life.

Here is something to think about or ponder.

Hope is what separates us from every other living creature on this planet, and our ability to accessorize.

Perhaps we are not the most intelligent creatures on the planet but we are hopeful.

( I used “ability to accessorize” from part of a line from one of my all-time favourite movies “Steel Magnolias” ).

So no matter what is going on around you just remember there is always hope, always.

As long as human beings inhabit this planet there will always be hope.

It is what gets us out of bed in the morning.

It is what gives us the drive to do better.

It is what gives us a reason to live.

 

Have a great Thursday.

Special Hello to: my friends back home.

Always, Carol and Alvin

P.S. so excited for Saturday as my daughter and I are taking our Dear Stella Jewellery inventory to a craft sale.

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 1st day of January, 2016.

A New Year.

Alvin and I managed to stay up until Midnight ….

 

The sun is shining brightly in the sky …

 

 

This morning I am reminded of all the dear souls two-legged and four-legged that we lost in 2015.

Just received a call that …

Yesterday …. our friend “KOA” has left us.

The big yellow dog that would visit my neighbour.

Rest in peace KOA … we know she is in a better place and we wrap our arms around her Mom “K” who misses her so much.

We have been blessed to know, to have learned and to have been in their lives.

 

Today remember …. turn on the photos in your memory and watch their stories.

Remember all of the joyful times you spent together.

 

Take care …..

 

Special Hello to: everyone who has lost someone ….. we miss them, too.

Always, Carol and Alvin
