Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 9th day of January, 2016.

Kind of rolls off your tongue …. Saturday the 9th day of January, 2016….. with a bit of a ring to it.

It is quiet here in my house at 8:27 a.m.

Looking out the office window the sky looks like dark and looming as it is overcast.

No sight of a sunrise.

None to be found.

We were up earlier at 5:40 a.m. (which is even late for Mr. Alvin) for Alvin’s breakfast.

It just did not seem like the time to be getting up to start this day.

I love just laying in bed … pondering things ….. dozing off …. waking up and then the “light comes on” and it feels like it is time to get up.

Alvin felt that way because when I made the move to get up a few minutes ago …. he literally did a couple of little jump hops before jumping off the bed.

A shower will be welcome this morning …. they help get the day going.

With no hint of sunshine it feels like bedtime not time to get up.

I find in the winter time it is hard to get going early in the morning or even at this time when the sky is overcast.

We have not had much sunshine this winter …..

 

My daughter will be coming in a couple of hours or so and that does make me want to get up and get going.

I have lots to do before her arrival.

I guess the lights in the house will mimic sunshine for now.

The warmth of the shower will feel somewhat like the warmth of the sun.

I will trick the energy into my body.

 

Perhaps wherever you are there is sunshine and the above is not an issue.

I hope there is sunshine where you are this very moment.

But for me and the one million plus people living in Edmonton …. lights and showers will have to do.

 

Have a Happy Saturday.

Be kind …. be respectful ….

Let’s show the Universe that the people of Earth are caring, compassionate and kind.

Let’s show the Universe that we deserve this beautiful planet.

Let’s show the Universe that we can.

 

Special Hello to: my fellow people of Earth …. have a great day.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to FRIDAY the 24th day of January, 2014.

YAY it is the weekend.

Beautiful windy warm morning.

It has got me to thinking about the different sides of things – you know the ying and yang of life.

When I was about to turn on the shower this morning I cringed for a nano second just as the cold water hit my body followed by the warm.

How about one day the temperature is minus 20 celsius and the next it is above zero and melting?

How about laughter and tears?

Or perhaps like and dislike.

There are so many examples of this in our lives.

It is a fun challenge to remain on the “LIGHT” side.

To think of the warm wonderful shower.

To think of clear sidewalks and days getting brighter.

To think of laughter.

So on this funky Friday …. that is what I am calling it ….. FUNKY FRIDAY ….. have a blast and try walking on the light side ….. the positive flowing ….. fun side.

Have a great day…..

Special Hello to: all those positive thinkers ….. your thoughts do determine your life.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday, January 30, 2013.

Well we have passed the bitter cold day of yesterday and it feels a bit warmer this morning.

It is snowing here in Edmonton.  It is funny how much we as human beings talk about weather.

I was reminded by someone that sometimes my blog sounds like a weather report for Edmonton.

But I guess we write what we observe and usually that is the first thing that I see in the morning as I write.

 

I always think Alvin looks so cute when he comes in from outside with the snow glistening on his coat (his natural one).

He always makes me smile in the morning as he wants to go out but hesitates at the doorway.

He sniffs the cold air and sounds like he is sneezing as he decides ….

But when you have to go you have to go and no matter how cold it is …..

I always have to giggle when people at work are sharing their similar pet stories.

Oh, the puppies.

I am glad that for Alvin and all the other puppies that have good homes .. that their only hardship is having to “go outside.”

I wished that all of the dogs and cats had good homes and were well looked after …..

 

On this beautiful Wednesday morning I hope that life is treating you kindly.

I hope that you have all that you need and a little of what you “want” …. because you deserve it.

I hope that when you wake up to a warm house you think “wow, I am so blessed to have heat” on this cold day.

I hope that when you have your bath or shower you think “I am grateful to be clean” and have running water.

I hope that when you put your clothes on you think “this is great, I am so lucky to have these clean, nice things to wear.”

I hope that when you eat breakfast you think “I am so grateful to have good food to eat.”

Remember that even if you are not a millionaire ….. or live in a big house ….. or have five cars in the garage …. you are BLESSED.

We are lucky …. you are lucky.

I wish you the best day ever.

Spread the wealth ….. be kind …. smile ….. lend a hand.

 

Special Hello to: all those pet owners and kind people ….. you rock.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
