There are people who make you happy and give you a reason to laugh, smile or talk about them, in a good way. I have a good neighbour who has a pulsating aura of positivity. She always strives to put a smile on people’s faces.
Always, she writes notes on the communication board to anyone who cares to read them. Well, you cannot afford to miss her posts. I always look forward to it.
She would often write:
Have a great day!
Have a nice weekend!
Have a productive week!
And during the Yuletide – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Et al.
She is so sweet that today she wrote something again which I loved and wanted to share with you.

Deep within me
Deep within my soul
I hold a passion that no one else understands
A passion to render help
To people who did not solicit for it
And to some others in dire need of me
How happy I feel to see the smiles on their faces
When I listen to their pathetic stories
The hurt and pain they have been through
And the lonesome feeling of separation
From families and loved ones
A moment with these Refugees
Became a time well spent
I volunteer to help anyone
As my inner spirit leads me
And it did lead me to the elderly in my city
To be in their midst once every week
Together with other volunteers
We cook and eat together
Every visit to the elderly people’s home
Leaves me fulfilled and happier
To listen to them as they share their pains and sorrows
To go on occasional walk with them
To visit and keep them company
To cheer them up
Became a craving
A strong desire
Thus I create the time
‘Cos I love it so
To share a moment with them
To talk and listen to their heartaches
Became a source of joy to me
Became a passion I cherish
Perhaps, it’s innate in me
To help lessen the burden of others
So I pledged to give my time
For the sake of love
To render help without a fee
Without any charges

One harsh reality of life that my experience has taught me in this journey is that you are responsible for your life and what happens to you. You are responsible for your destiny and how it turns out. That is the truest truth. I discovered this truth a bit late and I will not fail to shout it out loud so that people will stop looking up to others to help them decide their fate in life. You owe yourself that job. So get to work and work yourself to the top. Continue reading
What is that thing you are trusting God for?
What is that thing eating your heart away?
What is that thing that steals your joy?
What are you wishing for that you so need in your life?
Hey, tell it to HIM. Say that prayer one more time and trust that he is able.
Yes, HE is still in the business of listening to our supplications.
HE will hear you as you speak to HIM today.
Go on, talk to God again!
I remembered when I lost my father some years ago, expressions of sympathy flooded from across the globe by people who are connected to my family one way or another. Friends and family members and even strangers who heard about his demise wanted to reach out to us with their compassion. Some, who have experienced the death of a loved one empathized with us and shared their experiences. Continue reading
