Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 6th day of August, 2017.

Just a few more days until I turn 60.

Having a great visit with my little sister.

We are off to West Edmonton Mall for a few hours.

The sun is shining and the birds are singing  and life is grand.

What a lucky girl I am.

Alvin is loving having two of me…..

The reason I say is because we sound exactly the same.

Alvin is running between the two of us.

But I will say that he loves his Auntie C.

Last night we were out for a walk and she popped into the corner gas station.

We stayed across the street waiting for her as I did not want to take him across the big busy street.

He cried for her and waited impatiently for her to return.

Well time to put the finishing touches on getting ready.

Have a wonderful day.

Special Hello to: my family and friends on this sunny Sunday.

Always, Carol & Alvin

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 5th day of September, 2013.

What a gorgeous morning.

Just hopped out of the shower and am ready to grab this day by it’s tail and go for it.

I was thinking about something.

Are you where you thought you would be at this point in your life?

Are you happy?

Are you living life to the fullest extent of your being?

Are you giving back?

Well honestly for me, I do not think that I could have dreamed that I would be doing what I am doing at this stage of my life.

When I was a child and young woman,  I dreamed of a big house with a white fence and now my children would be grown up and likely grandchildren.

But as we all know sometimes we change the course of our lives.

I did that early on but I still dreamed of four children even if it meant they belonged to someone else (blended marriage).

Today I have one daughter, a son-in-law, two grand=puppies and one “son” my Alvin …… they are the BEST.

I am surrounded by loving family and friends.

I am not in a relationship other than with my family and friends.

I work two jobs so that I can live in this house.

My very first house at age 52.

I try to write as much as possible.

I have a jewellery business (small but we will grow) with my daughter.

Making jewellery and writing are my two passions … being creative is wonderful.

I still dream and revise those dreams all the time.

Which I think helps you to grow.

I know that my dreams have changed somewhat but I am SO HAPPY.

Somedays it can be “difficult” being on your own but I know that I CAN DO IT.

I am abundant in so much of my life that the remaining part will catch up and that I know for sure.

I try to give back wherever I can ….

I belong to the Capital City Clean-Up and keep my neighbourhood clean by picking up the trash.

Whenever and wherever I can I help others.

Time is always a good thing to give ….. it has more value than you know.

So get out there …. dream …. revise those dreams ….. give back and live your life.

Have a great Thursday.

I am on the second day of learning about Pinterest.

Computers are a wonderful thing.

Special Hello to: all the dreamers of the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin
