Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 26th day of July, 2017.

Today’s forecast is HOT.

Last night Ed Sheeran and James Blunt were entertaining those lucky enough to attend the concert here in Edmonton.

Sadly, I was not one of them.

But I am grateful to the videos posted so that I could hear just a bit of them perform.

So good.

 

Well here we go two weeks from today I turn 60.

I cannot believe it.

Six decades.

How did that happen?

In a blink of an eye.

So much to look forward to …. spending time with family and friends.

That is the best part of the birthday thing.

Time with family and friends.

 

All too often we take for granted family and friends until it is too late.

So take some time today, tomorrow, next week and call someone …. SKYPE someone …. spend time with those you love.

I hope that we all get to live a long, joyful life …..

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who take precious time out of their days to read this blog, means the world to me.

Always, Carol & Alvin

COUNTDOWN: 60 Days to 60

Today is Monday, June 12, 2017 and it is the 59 day until my 60th Birthday.

I guess at some point one may ask these questions:

  1.  What does it mean to be 60?
  2. How are you supposed to be feeling as you turn 60?

To me it means that I have lived through six decades.

60 years – some good – some great – others less so.

It means that I have lived through major changes in technology.

It also means that even though the years and decades have come and gone – basically the human race has not changed.

We have not evolved past centuries of torturing and killing one another, and the world around us including other life forms.

The one thing that has changed dramatically over my sixty years on this planet is our less than stellar care and protection of this planet, we call Earth, our home.

Greed and Power remain two of man’s largest downfalls.

It is likely not to change anytime soon.

I think what makes me feel so sad, is, I am about to turn sixty years old, and I can clearly see that things have not changed much at all.

Now I am a pretty positive person and I am not about to spend these next fifty-nine days reflecting on things negative.

Just an observation from my vantage point as I near sixty years living on this amazing planet.

It is never too late to change and one person does make a difference.

 

Always, Carol
