Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 4th day of February, 2019.

Another cold, snowy day has arrived.

First really COLD week all winter long so we really cannot complain.

Make sure that you bundle up in many layers when you go outside today and all this week.

I am grateful that both Alvin and I have a nice warm home.

We are truly blessed.

Yesterday was a fairly quiet day with the exception of some “battery” issues.

Who knew that all 3 volt batteries are not created equal.

So when my friend was out and picked me up a 3 volt battery; I was surprised when it did not fit.

Not the low battery / failure signal keeps on wailing.

With some luck perhaps it will not disturb me Alvin while he is home today.

My daughter ordered me some batteries from Amazon and I hope they arrive today.

 

I am again grateful for the ride to work this morning.

Grateful that I have a warm coat and boots for the wait and walk from the bus after work.

Always seems colder and perhaps it is in the morning.

 

I am rereading the book “THE MAGIC” by Rhonda Byrne.

All about gratitude.

Counting your blessings …. being thankful ….. certainly does make your life brighter and easier.

Negative, which as of late I have fallen into, can drag you down.

Negativity takes away the brightness and makes things harder.

Every time that we criticize we cancel out the blessings that were on the way.

Negativity takes away the Positivity.

Take some time every single day maybe even all day to be grateful.

Say aloud or write on your computer or on paper – all of the things that you are grateful for ….

 

I am grateful for my house as it shelters me and Alvin from the elements.

I am grateful for me Alvin as he is a great companion and makes me smile.

I am grateful to be employed as it enables me to have this house, food on the table, to pay bills and to live my life.

I am grateful to have rides to work this week as it is bitterly cold outside.

I am grateful to my friend who is giving me and Alvin a ride to and from his surgery on Thursday.

I am grateful to be alive….

 

Well time to start gathering up things and start putting on the layers.

I hope that you are safe, warm and happy on this Monday and always.

We are so blessed …. a good thing to remember.

 

Special Hello to: my sister, keeping warm here and hope you are there, too.

Always, Carol & Alvin
