Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 29th day pf April, 2019.

Wow, second last day of April 2019.

This morning the sunrise is crazy beautiful as it rises there are some puffy dark blue clouds that appear to be suspended from the clear blue sky above.

Looks like someone just added them with a paint brush.

Oh so pretty.

 

I was thinking this morning as I was getting ready for the day about how much we all take for granted our lives.

We take for granted our health, our family and friends.

Our jobs and our homes.

Usually it is not until we lose something or someone, that we realize this.

How precious every aspect of our lives is …..

When you can swing your legs off the bed and touch the floor and stand up.

Be grateful.

When you can turn on the tap and have clean healthy water to drink and use.

Be grateful.

When you can walk for exercise and enjoyment.

Be grateful.

Every time you make a mortgage payment on your home.

Be grateful.

Every time you pay your taxes be grateful as that money goes for health care, roads and more.

Every moment of every day is a blessing.

A blessing that we can breathe clean air.

A blessing that we are surrounded by family and friends.

A blessing that we have homes and a bed to sleep in at night.

A blessing that we have jobs to make that mortgage payment and to buy food.

A blessing that we are alive.

So on those days when you are feeling woe is me; remember.

Life is a blessing.

Be grateful.

Yes, I know perhaps there will be days that are less than perfection.

But at least we have those days.

Please do not spend your precious moments walling in self pity or complaining about someone or something.

Spend your time being grateful.

Life will always be better if you spend it in a state of gratitude.

 

Have an awesome Monday.

The sky is blue.

The clouds are delightful.

I am alive.

I have my buddy Alvin at my side.

Thank you.

I am most gratefully for all that I have and that I saw my kids yesterday afternoon.

Thank you.

 

Special Hello to: you and you and you.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

How many times have you just missed a great opportunity?

How did that make you feel?

Did you feel upset because it cost you?

Did you feel mad at yourself for not keeping on top of things?

Did you feel wronged by the universe?

Did you play the “blame game”?

OR

Did you feel lucky that you in fact had an opportunity?

Did you feel blessed that because you know in your heart that there is something WAY better on it’s way to you?

Did you feel joy and love, just because that is your way?

I know that I have felt all of those “emotions” at one point or other.

Lately it has been perhaps a bit more.

But even though I have those moments which might even stretch to minutes or hours ….

I find my way back to love, joy and gratitude.

Because I know and have a deep seeded faith that everything will work out for the best.

Sometimes it might take a bit longer to get there because you throw up those roadblocks of self-pity and negativity.

So if you find yourself on this Friday or any other day …. in a less than perfect situation where an opportunity has passed you by …

simply “surround yourself with love”.

Love can “your favourite music, pet, friends, family, flowers …. or anything really. ┬áJust something that makes you feel GREAT.

Love will fill your heart and keep you on track.

So for this Friday, July the 8th of 2011 ….. with my Alvin squeaking to be lifted to look out of the office window …. I

bid you all a fond farewell…..

Happy Friday everyone and have a SPECTACULAR weekend.

 

Always, Carol
