Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 8th day of February, 2017.

Do you ever think back to the same day a year ago or perhaps two or three or more?

I wonder how many of these days draw exact parallels to each other.

Okay for starters today is Wednesday, and last year the 8th of February was a Monday.

So the actual day is not the same but perhaps the feelings are closer to being the same.

If we think that we stray from our core basic feelings over time  …. I would say that is not really true.

We may have the odd day or two where we stray from our true feelings, the ones in our core.

Our basic emotions.

BUT ….

It is funny that in large part it holds true one year later.

I did wake up feeling today was going to be a great day.

Just as I was blowing my hair dry the phone rang and it was my neighbour; offering me a ride to work.

A great way to begin the day.

This gives me about twenty extra minutes.

I immediately walked over to the bed where Alvin was laying watching me and gave him a big hug.

I do know that when the early morning is great, the rest of the day will be fantastic.

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 8th day of February, 2016.

Have you ever awaken to feel like this is going to be a great day.

A day like no other.

Feeling like something magical, fun, wonderful and absolutely fantastic is happening to you on this day.

Well that is how I feel on this Monday morning.

I will admit a bit unusual for a Monday morning …..

Usually I do not sleep well Sunday night and Monday mornings are sometimes a bit of a strain to get up and get motivated but not TODAY.

I will admit that I asked Alvin to stay in bed until the alarm went off but it was not because I did not want to get out of bed.

Just because I wished to lay there and soak in the morning …. un-feted (is that even a word) by the day.

So here we are ….. breakfast done, shower check, make-up check and writing blog …. almost check.

Mr. Alvin is as usual laying outside the office door waiting for me.

He is so loyal ….. we could all learn lessons from our four-legged friends.

He is always waiting by the front door for me to arrive at home after work.

He is always happy to see me and I know he has to pee and is hungry …. but nevertheless he always takes that minute to ravish me with attention.

Now what a way to welcome someone home.

It doesn’t matter if I am gone all day or for 20 minutes ….. he welcomes me in the same way.

So today is the day …..

Perhaps a dream will come to fruition or just something nice.

It does not matter ….. I just feel great and that is what matters.

*******************************************************************************

So on this 8th day of February 2017 – life is magical.

I am so happy to be here right now in this place surrounded by magic.

Have an awesome day.

Fill your heart with joy and the magic will follow.

Happy Wednesday.

Tea deliveries today ……. that makes me happy.

Special Hello to: my darling sister.  Baby Milo is fine.  Are you available to SKYPE on Sunday?

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 16th day of December, 2014.

One more day closer to Christmas.

Exactly eight sleeps until Christmas Eve and nine until Christmas Morning.

Last night I took out all of my holiday Christmas tins, all 8 of them and filled them up with goodies to distribute to friends and family and co-workers.

If you celebrate this day …

Do you open gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning?

Do you go to church Christmas Eve?

Do you have a big meal on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

Do you have family and friends to your home or do you go out?

Perhaps you travel to family at a distance.

I know people celebrate this day in many ways.

Really it is a personal preference  ….. do what feels good to you.

If you prefer to be alone …. then be alone.

If you feel like going to a restaurant to eat then go?

If you feel like cooking for 20 then cook for them.

We open gifts Christmas gifts.

We sleep in a bit on Christmas morning.

We have our big meal for dinner/supper Christmas day.

If there were children in the house it would be gift opening Christmas morning.

I love our personal ritual …… it is quiet and fun.

We enjoy each other’s company and of course, the gifts.

The puppies partake as well.

They get presents, too.

Alvin always tells me what to buy everyone !!

He is one smart puppy.

Well almost time to leave for work at the office.

I hope that whatever your plans are this holiday season that you are safe and happy.

Keep things simple.

Easy “peezy” ….. how do you spell that word ….. “peazy” – well I do not think it is an actual word.

Have a great day, my friends.

Special Hello to: my sister …… talk to you soon.

Always, Carol and Alvin
