Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 28th day of April, 2016.

Another month in April almost complete …. hard to believe.

 

Yesterday was a stellar day in our household.

Our beloved Elton continues to beat the odds and is making a full and “speedy” recovery from his surgery on Tuesday.

The kids went for a visit yesterday and he was so excited to see them he just stood and wagged his tail and then began to eat his food.

The staff said he wouldn’t eat before they arrived.

He continues to astonish the Doctors and all of us.

We are so grateful that he remains with his family that treasure the little guy more than words can say.

 

The other was just as much a surprise as Elton’s amazing recovery was this.

On our way home from our walk we stopped by the mail box to retrieve the mail.

Usually flyers and junk mail.

There was an medium sized white envelope that was addressed to me by way of a typed label.

There was no return address.

There was no means of identifying by the post mark.

When I got home I quickly opened it.

Inside the envelope something was neatly wrapped in white paper, carefully the corners were pressed.

Opening that I found a small yellowish enveloped so sealed that I had to use my letter opener to get into it.

Inside I found a small card decorated with three little flowers.

I opened the card to find a $50.00 Save-On Grocery Card (the store is walking distance from my house).

The card read:   JUST BECAUSE and beside it a “Happy Face.”

No signature …. no means of discovering who this most generous person is ….

I am running out of time here as I have to go to work.

But I must tell you the timing is perfection as between Alvin’s $1200 Dental Bill and the $800 Unexpected Energy Bill, it has left me “temporary” in a bind.

Getting there and the gift card was so thoughtful.

Sometimes you never know what you will find in the mailbox.

Maybe it was not a cheque but it was so much more.

Someone took the time and got me something I could use.

So very grateful.

 

We also stopped by and saw one of our neighbour’s who had recently fell and broke her hip and is now home recovering.

Another speedster in the healing department.

She is in such good health she will be up and doing her gardening soon.

Thank you.

 

Yesterday was a blessed day all way round.

 

Special Hello to: all those folks who think there is no one watching over them ….. there surely is ……

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day……

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 5th day of November, 2014.

I am back after being sick for the past couple of days.

So great to be feeling better.

I had a surprise phone call from my sister last night letting me know that she is coming for a visit this weekend.

Crazy …… now that is such a great surprise.

We have been having such wonderful weather here in Edmonton.

I hope that it will stay for a few more weeks.

Perfect weather for someone to travel.

How are you all doing this morning?

Can you believe that only two more days and we are finished one whole week in November?

I did put my tree up on the weekend and we did get the front of the house decorated which was great.

Next Christmas cards and a bit of baking.

I have to sit down and draw up my Christmas card list and then set to work on drafting my Christmas letter.

This has been an eventful year chalked full of news.

Do you send out cards for the holidays?

I always enjoy receiving a card and letter.

Most especially the letter …..

It always makes me feel wonderful and warm inside….

I am always grateful that someone took the time to write up a letter and pick up a stamp and mail it.

Now that all takes time and how great for us that people do this.

I wished that people sent more letters.

How about this holiday season ….. even if you have never sent a card and letter ….. that you do it.

You will make someone so happy.

Give it a whirl ……. you never know ….. you might like it and keep up the tradition.

Thank you.

Special Hello to: my sister …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
