Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Sunday the 7th day of October, 2018.

One week into October.

The sun is rising in he morning sky and it is light but not sunny bright.



This is the weekend that we give thanks.

We get together with family and friends.

Sharing a meal or two or three.

Sometimes we share a meal of turkey, sometimes ham or sometimes even lasagne.

Cannot forget the pumpkin pie.

It is not about what we eat.

It is about spending the time with family and friends, with loved ones.

Catching up on their latest news.

Being grateful for having them in our lives.

Being thankful for our lives.

Being thankful for the food that we share.

Being thankful for where we live, for this beautiful country – Canada.


It is also about giving back.

It is about sharing that meal with a neighbour who does not have family or loved ones nearby.

It is about opening your home to a friend of a friend who has no where to go.


Thanksgiving is about sharing what you have with someone else.

Thanksgiving is being thankful and being grateful.


Often times we go about our lives complaining about not having this or not having that.

But in the deepest of realities we have more than we NEED.


On this Thanksgiving Day I am grateful to be surrounded by loved ones.

To have more than enough good food to eat.

To live in my own house, the home I am providing for me and Alvin.

To be in good health.

To be able to watch the leaves falling from the trees.

To hear the songs playing on the radio.

To sleep in my own bed at night.

For all of this and much more; I am truly thankful.


Happy Thanksgiving from me and Alvin to You and Yours.


Special Hello to: ALL of my FAMILY AND FRIENDS – two legged and four – Happy Thanksgiving.

Always, Carol & Alvin








COUNTDOWN: 60 Days to 60

Today is Wednesday, June 14 2017 and it is the 57 day until my 60th Birthday.


One thing is for sure:

Thought for the day…..

My thought for this day is:  YOU ARE ALWAYS SURROUNDED BY LOVE.

Somedays when you are feeling perhaps less than perfect and less than loved.

Turn your thoughts to LOVE.

You are LOVE.

There is always someone whether family, friend or your ever faithful pet …. that LOVES you.

But most of all love yourself.

You are SPECIAL.  You are MAGNIFICENT . You are the BEST.

You are AMAZING.   You make ME LAUGH OUT LOUD.





Have the best day.  Keep the faith and remember, I love you.

Always, Carol

Thought for the day……

On this day ……. my thoughts lean towards GRATITUDE ……

In fact, I am grateful every day of my life.

I am so blessed by good health, my daughter and son-in-law, my dog Alvin, my siblings, nephews and nieces and FRIENDS.

I am blessed to have Elton and Penny, my grand-puppies (cannot forget them).

I am blessed to live in a beautiful home  – something that I have wanted all of my adult life.

I am blessed to live in the best country on the planet.

I am blessed to be surrounded by love and laughter……. I am good at laughing at my own follies and foibles.

I am grateful for this DAY …… Happy Wednesday…

Always, Carol
