Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 31st day of December, 2018.

The last day of December and the last day of the year 2018.

 

WOW, what a year – 2018.

Right.

The world has struggled to come up with a game plan regarding the environment or at least one that ALL countries will join.

Wars, struggles and strife continue all over the world.

We have listened to the rants and raves of leaders.

Weather has been off the charts this past year between fires, floods, hurricanes and tsunamis.

Even at home there has been peaceful conflict between those who want the pipeline built and those who do not.

There have been advances and disadvantages.

We have lost dear ones.

Babies have been born.

 

For me, I continue to work, to be employed.

At a time where jobs are held dear.

I am most grateful to be employed.

I am grateful to have supportive family and friends.

I am grateful that despite the recent political atmosphere I/We live in a peaceful country.

I am grateful to have clean drinking water.

I am grateful that I can write and am not shut down for voicing my opinions.

I am grateful that Alvin and I are in good health.

I am grateful that I am able to live in a home/house that I can call my own.

I am grateful that I can see, hear, smell, taste and touch.

I am grateful for books, music and nature.

I am grateful that I can make a difference – should I choose.

I am grateful to be me.

I am grateful that during the last eleven days of this year that I was able to visit with my cousins and many friends.

To be surrounded by good people is the best feeling ever.

A great way to end the year.

 

For the New Year, I simply wish that all nations would come together peacefully to solve or at least begin to resolve the damage done to our beloved environment.

Let us hope that it is not too late.

Our environment is like our own personal good health; without it, we will perish or at least live very restricted lives.

 

I know that this sounds like a doom and gloom post but sometimes we have to dig our heads out of the sand and speak up.

There is a break in the clouds this morning.

The sky is no longer white.

The sky is filled with dark blue clouds which I can see clear blue sky.

There is hope that we will have sunshine today.

I wish HOPE for everyone – everywhere.

I wish SUNSHINE for everyone – everywhere.

 

Happy New Year.

Happy 2019.

 

Special Hello to: all of my family and friends, wishing you all a very Happy New Year.

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 23rd day of September, 2017.

So grateful for the sunny blue skies of this morning.

What a great sight after several days of cloud and rain.

 

How can the rest of the world quietly stand by and listen to two “powerful” leaders bully and demean each other, and threaten nuclear war.

Are we not taking this seriously?

Perhaps we should.

It is the actions of mad men that truly scares me.

The stark reality of this is nuclear war if other countries do not intervene.

At the very least much unrepairable damage to the environment.

How can reports say this will not happen?

Are you kidding me?

Kim Jong Un  just wants a reason, and he will not step down on his own.

Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump are taking “leadership” to a whole other level.

I would be so incredibly embarrassed if my Prime Minister spoke or acted in this manner.

Maybe, everyone on this planet needs to step up and put an end to this craziness.

It is hard to believe that in 2017 we still have mad men leading countries and wars killing millions.

I guess nothing has been learned over the last thousands of years.

Feeling disappointed …..

 

Back to my current reality of doing laundry, cleaning the house, grocery shopping and such.

But I do think about the status of the planet and the human beings that inhabit it.

Feeling sorry that we are in this state of affairs.

 

Special Hello to: every creature on this planet and I wished that I had a way to stop the madness.

Always, Carol & Alvin

 

 

 

 

Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 10th day of February, 2016.

Yesterday was about + 10 degrees celsius ….. crazy.

WOW, how did that happen?

I am pretty sure it was February 1st the day before yesterday ….

Oh well ….. winter is passing and with it comes the arrival of spring.

My favourite season.

I did note the other day that the bunnies are starting to turn brown.

How lovely …..

Sure have not seen as many of them as we used to when I first moved here from Regina.

That being said ….. there has been so much construction in this area I can see why.

All of the poor animals displaced because we keeping encroaching on their homes.

Sure wished that we could live together without displacing them.

Everyday you hear of another species that is now extinct.

I feel for all of these creatures.

 

Perhaps it is a dream of mine and some others that PEACE will reign someday over this planet.

Is it possible to happen in my lifetime?

I do not know.

Sure would be nice.

 

When you hear of people starving and living in absolute poverty and then the billions countries spend on war ….. what is wrong with that?

If all of the money was put into finding cures for diseases, spent on the environment and such ….. well that would be great.

 

We can make a difference …. one person at a time.

Be good to your environment ….. small things make a big difference.

Turn off the lights …… walk instead of driving ….. don’t toss that coffee cup…

Please ….

 

Well it is time to put the finishing touches on before I head out to work.

I hope that you have an awesome day.

 

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 7th day of June, 2014.

It is a beautiful quiet sunny morning here at my house.

Alvin spent the night at his sister’s house as per usual, as I worked at the store.

We are very blessed that Alvin can go to their house so that he is not alone.

I think of him and all of the other fuzzy loved ones that are alone while their parent(s) are at work.

I think that we take for granted their feelings.

They miss us as much as we miss them.  Likely more.

It always amazes me about how happy he is to see me when I return home.

It is 20 seconds of pure bliss.

He runs to me as though I have been gone for days.

Now part of that is he has to “pee” and is hungry.

But nevertheless he is as happy to see me as I am him.

He is my ground zero of joy ….. of course, my daughter is there as well.

My number one wish is that I could stay home with him all of the time.

Now for most of us parent(s) that is not always possible.

But I will continue to work on that aspect.

I wished that all of the furry ones that we deem as pets ( I really do not care for that word ) would have loving parents and safe, happy homes.

So on this beautiful, quiet Saturday morning I miss “me Alvin” but I know that I will see him soon.

Busy Saturday ….. will be shovelling dirt, having coffee with one of my neighbours and going out to find beads and supplies to make wedding jewellery (custom order).

So much fun.

Always great to have some physical activity along with visiting and shopping.

Now of course there will be laundry and housework in their somewhere and hopefully a chat with my sister.

So Happy Saturday everyone.

Remember to be the best Mom/Dad you can to your furry one ….. we all should be treating them with love and respect.

We should treat every living creature/being on this planet with love and respect.

If we all did that …. bye-bye war and conflict …. hello joy and peace.

Just imagine……….

Special Hello to: my sister …. time to chat …..

Always, Carol and Alvin
