Don’t Forget to say I Love You

Let Your Loved ones Know You Care

File:Love Heart SVG.svg - Wikimedia Commons

The year 2020 if anything, has shown us how vulnerable we all are, and how precious this gift of life is. Many people went into hospital alone and scared, with no one stand by their side, or hold their hands. Some died alone, with no goodbyes. Many never got the chance to say, I love to family members or friends before they passed away.

Let us not take life for granted. Always remember to say I love you to those close to your heart. Let them know they are in your thoughts. Let them know you care. For life flashes by quickly and before you know it they are gone.

Life is like a Storybook

Life is like a storybook, intricately woven with many twists and turns. However, unlike a storybook it is more complex, more unpredictable. In a storybook, you get to know all the characters and you know how the story ends. Life is unpredictable about who you will encounter, and you cannot guarantee how your story will end. The key is to live a life that others can emulate. When you are gone from this earth let it be said that this person came, lived, showed love and made a difference.

Hold on to Hope

Be Hopeful

No matter how far you seem to be from where you want to be, never stop trying, and never stop believing that you will get there. The seasons are always changing. Many of us are going through a rough patch now, but change will come. Don’t give way to doubt. Think positive thoughts. God will not only fill your cup, but He will let it overflow with blessings.

A Love Poem

Lost Chances

100+ Free Wilted & Flower Images - Pixabay

I caught a glimpse of your face, saw the sad reflection of your smile,
And the longing in your eyes,
It spoke the question you were afraid to ask.
It is all so painful, the memories of the past.
When love was right before your eyes
You chose not to see
Thinking only of your youth and the need to be free.
The years have gone by quickly
and now you are all alone
You yearn for something you no longer have
Now it is much too late to turn back the clock.
Isn’t it funny how we never realize what we have until we lose it?

So often relationships fail because of lack of commitment. Partners take each other for granted and assume they will always stick around. Don’t be that person who let something good slip away and then live with regrets.

Television Series

“The 100”

Do you get bored by soap operas? Do you get tired seeing the same recycled materials being played out over and over again? If you do you are not alone.There is nothing better that watching an original series that keeps you on the edge of your seat, wanting more.

The 100 delivers. My daughter introduced me to it and I am hooked. It is a Science Fiction television series filled with drama. There is never a dull moment. It keeps you guessing, waiting with bated breath to find out what happens next. If you are a fan of “The Game of Thrones or, “The Hand Maid’s Tale, you will love “The 100.”

An Inspirational Story

The Three Hair

There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head. “Well,” she said, “I think I’ll braid my hair today.” So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. “H-M-M, ” she said, “I think I’ll part my hair down the middle today.” So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. “Well,” she said, “Today I’m going to wear my hair in a pony tail.” So she did and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn’t a single hair on her head….

“YEAH!” she exclaimed, “I don’t have to fix my hair today!”

The moral of this story is our attitude to our circumstances is important. We must maintain a positive attitude and make the best of what we have. I hope this story inspire someone today.

Domestic Violence Awareness

Is it My Fault

One of the trap victims of domestic violence may fall into is believing the abuse they suffer is their fault. Abusers seldom take responsibility for their actions. Instead they deflect the blame to the victim. In a conversation once with a man who constantly abused his girlfriend, he said to me “I really love her.” I asked, “Then why do you abuse her?” His answer was, “To tell you the truth I don’t know. Sometimes she makes me so mad.” I was not at all surprised that he chose to blame her for his inability to control his anger.

Victims of domestic violence need to know it is not their fault. You do not deserve abuse. You should never accept abuse. Do not keep silent about abuse or feel ashamed it is happening to you. Instead speak up. Seek help.

A Poem About Life

Brave Hearts

Brave Hearts

File:Interlaced love hearts-3D.svg - Wikimedia Commons

They say only fools fall in love,
But I dare to prove them wrong,
When a soldier goes off to war
There is no guarantee that the cause
He is fighting for,
There is a certainty he’ll will,
Or even make it back alive,
But he goes off anyway,
Does that make him a fool?

Because there is no guarantee you will win
does that mean you shouldn’t try?
Of course you might get hurt,
But there is also a chance,
That you can make it work,
How will you know the outcome,
If you are afraid to take the chance?

If you can decipher the puzzle,
Then it’s pretty plain to see,
Coward hearts don’t fall in love,
It’s the brave hearts that do.

I wrote this poem a while back. I thought I would share it with you. There are people who go through life alone because they fear getting hurt. But how will you know if it will work out if you didn’t try?
