Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday, the 22nd day of July 2013.

What a fantastic morning it has been thus far.

When Alvin and I got up this morning it was walk time …. no more putting it off.

We were going to go.

When we got outside there was a breeze, a good mix of cool and warm; huge dark blue rain clouds hung off not to far away and there was lightning.

I hesitated and then thought “we have time” and we put on a good pace and did our complete walk.

Once we got back home, I decided to pull the flower pots close to the house for protection and to put the patio cushions in the garage.

Just back in the house and I heard a noise and looked out to see huge raindrops hitting the deck.

We were so lucky.

It has been pouring almost since that time which was about 5:30 so almost one hour.

I think we have enough moisture now.

Anyway, I am so grateful that we were able to get out and walk this morning.

 

I have one more “thought for the day” ….. bit more on the serious side.

Have you noticed these days with all of the social media how easy it is to “by a key stroke end a friendship.”

Perhaps it is not actually ending the friendship but certainly it is ignoring it.

Years ago …. people would physically ignore you or call on the telephone to “say it was over.”

Perhaps that was more if you were dating.

But how sad is it?

We are becoming a society of individuals that do not communicate.

No responsibility …. no face to face.

I am always surprised by the amount of “rudeness” there is in the world.

Anyway, I just wanted to mention that if you are less than happy with someone or have a gripe with them ….. call them or go see them.

Do not just “un friend” them.

Take responsibility for your actions and thoughts.

How would we ever know what the issue was ….. if no one says anything.

Speculate … that’s not good.

Sometimes there might be things we do not wish to hear but they need to be said.

That is how we grow and develop as humans.

So on this rainy Monday ….. “remember to talk” …. really talk ….. not just keying some abbreviations and signs.

Take Care.

Special Hello to: all my fellow bloggers ….. you rock.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday, January 7th, 2013 …..

The start of a new week.

Last night I was dreaming of my friends back in Regina ….. it has been awhile since I have seen them, and was thinking of them.

Thinking of special events and such.

I treasure all of my friendships new and old.

Some of my friends I have known since I was a toddler and I am now fifty-five….. so really all of my life.

I am so grateful to have such wonderful friends.

I am blessed as I am able to keep in touch with most of them via social media ….. like FB and now can SKYPE with them as well.

So on this day …. take time to think of your friends …. perhaps send them an email or give them a phone call.

I wish all of my friends everywhere a great day.

I miss you and hope to perhaps see you this summer ……

Take care everyone and have a great day.

Special Hello: to FRIENDS, mine and yours ……. you rock.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin
