Thought for the day ….

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 15th day of October, 2018.

Today we celebrate my Grand-puppies birthdays Miss Aspen and Baby Milo.

Miss Aspen joined our family December 2016.

Baby Milo joined our family October 2016.

Here are some photos of our babies.

I was looking for a more recent photo of Baby Milo as his hair is much longer since his early days but alas did not find one.

Happy Birthday Babies.

Well gotta run as I am catching the bus today.

Have an awesome day.

Special Hello to: my grand-babies Miss Aspen and Baby Milo

Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 27th day of April, 2015.

I must tell you that there is nothing quite like pancakes with your daughter surrounded by our pups.

Good food …. excellent company ….. best Sunday ever.

The sun shone which is exactly what you would expect for this special day.

It was great.

I am so blessed to have such an amazing daughter.

She helped me set up a television in the basement (which they gave me).

Followed by finishing up some paperwork ….. the fun stuff, of course.

Then a trip to COSTCO.

Whoops, we knew when we hit the parking lot that it was busy.

Kudos to the staff at customer service (return) and to the check-out staff as they had things moving right along.

We got in and got out.

Successful trip …..

Followed by a glorious walk with me Alvin before supper.

Perfect day.

I guess my thoughts are all about the many blessings in my life.

If you just take a wee look about you will see that there is much to hold in gratitude.

Make that list.

Each day alive is a blessing.

Do the things you are passionate about and surround yourself with the ones you love.

Then life is perfect….or very close.

Your perfection is your perfection.

Not anyones’ but yours.

Happy Monday everyone.

Well almost time to grab that stuff and snuggle with me Alvin for a couple of minutes before heading out the door.

Special Hello to: all my friends all over the world …. thank you.

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Tuesday morning and today is August 14th, 2012 and it is the birthday of my great nephew AZLIN.

He is SEVEN today.

It seems like yesterday that he was born.

I remember waiting anxiously in the waiting room with his Grandma (my sister) for his arrival.

That was seven years ago today ……. WOW.

It seems like only yesterday.

All these babies being born and now they are seven, nine, ten, two and one …….

When you remember an event and it seems like only yesterday ….

Then someone kindly jogs your memory to tell you that it was ten years ago or more ….

Well that is just crazy.

It seems like only yesterday or maybe three weeks ago that my daughter was born.

She is thirty-two ……

I just turned “55” last week and that seems unreal to me.

I guess age is simply a number ….. something to remind us of all the memories.

Of all the years that we have to be grateful for ….

Happy Birthday my boy ….. your Anta misses you very much.

I hope that you have a great day.

Birthdays are special as they are a reminder of a life lived …..

So remember to remember on your special day ….

That is the most important thing of all ….. the memories..

Your life is a great memory.

Special Hello to: ¬†all everyone …. have a great day.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin

In case you were wondering why no blog yesterday … I was home unwell …… but today feel much better.

Thought for the day……

Happy Wednesday February 1st, 2012.

February …… the month of “all things heart shaped” …… Valentine’s Day.

I love the thought of that day …… receiving flowers from that special someone.

Picking up a cute teddy for a special child.

Perhaps picking up a box of your best friend’s favourite chocolate.

Then there are always the gifts straight from the heart requiring no cash, cheque or credit card.

Those are the best kind.

You can give coupons (made specially by you) or else a verbal promise to:

(ideas) take out the trash for a month, babysit for someone, walk a friend’s dog, cook something and take it to someone who lives alone,¬†visit seniors, shovel a sidewalk, invite a neighbour over for coffee, help someone with a special project and the list goes on….. use your imagination.

What do you think about Valentine’s Day?

I think simply that it is an extra special time to show people how much you care.

We should “care” all of the time but it is great to have a “national” day ……, I think.

So if you are contemplating doing something ……. just do it.

Make someone’s day…… doesn’t have to be ten dozen roses ……

Have a great February 1st ..

Special Hello: to all the angels wandering this earth …… thank you.

Always, Carol and of course, ALVIN …..
