Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 9th day of December, 2014.

Yes, one more day closer to Christmas.

My favourite time of the year.

I do love the decorations, the hustle and bustle, the baking, the Christmas Cards, the hooting and hall hauling, the music and the fuss.

I must admit I truly love this time of year.

I have another friend who loves this time of year as much as me.

She lives not quite a block away.

We had tea and homemade cinnamon buns last night at her house.

I love her decorations.

Every time we get together the hours seem like minutes, seconds even.

I absolutely love spending time with her ….

We talk …. we laugh ….. we talk ….. we laugh …..

Her husband usually chats at the start of our visit and at the end.

They are such a lovely couple ……

Looks like a trip to Costco this evening after work ……

Just we girls…..

I wonder how busy it will be.

I was surprised at how many shoppers were at the mall last Sunday.

Seems early but likely not.

We seem to forget from year to year.

Well today is another day.

Each second is new and precious.

Even though there are a few seconds here and there that I could do without for the most part I am over the moon grateful for my life.

I have learned so much by my errors or slips in judgement or from lack of information.

Life is all about learning.

I am a student of life.

I guess that is a good thing.

So take the time today to learn something …. even a new word.

Always worthwhile.

You never know when you could use that word or that action you learned to help yourself or others.

So off to the office I go.

Thank you for reading – it means the world to me.

Special Hello to: all those people who create and share their creations with the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Here we are ….. Friday, January 27th, 2012 …..

I am always amazed at how it seems we go from Monday to Friday in a blink of an eye.

I know that I have mentioned this on several occasions but it still amazes me.

Time is just one of those invisible forces ….. that continues no matter what.

It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, satisfied or not, happy or not, rich or not, whether you see the glass half-full or not ….. it continues.

It continues at a rate that long ago we determined in increments of seconds, minutes and hours … and so on.

Time is one of those things ….. I think about.

Not for lack of but just because it peaks my curiosity.

So what makes you think and be curious?

I hope that you have an amazing Friday ….

Perhaps a dream will come true today for you.

I hope that you find the time or time finds you.

Special Hello to: all those people who are curious …….

Always, Carol
