Who Says?

As a mother to two adorable daughters, I am humbled each day by their presence. I mean, they used to be just that miracle of life which blossomed from a minute uncertainty to vivid reality. Such that, as they grow up before my eyes, I wish I can protect them and shelter them in all ways I can. However, when they start to set out themselves into the real harsh world, it is a fact that it will be their own battle.

Yes! Don’t Grow Up! It’s a Trap! We saw these prints on a shirt for kids. Danger was at the back.

I admit! Adulting is kinda hard. And I just wish sometimes that I am back to being a kid. Don’t you? I mean, I reckon that when one becomes a grown up, naturally, we want to become more responsible.

So, to remind us once again on how great is it to be kids, here are statements from the kids themselves:  Continue reading

I can’t believe how the Snakes and Ladders game can be a great source of enlightenment!

My two daughters were playing Snakes and Ladders. Just when Miss 3 year-old was almost catching up with her elder sister, she landed on number 14. A number that depicts a big snake waiting to devour her and made her slide back to space number 4. Yup! 10 steps backward. That’s why she got so upset.

Then, they had this exchange – Continue reading

Brave, Honest, Beautiful

Reading  today’s Daily Prompt: Harmony has given me a mental block. It seems that I cannot even think of a word to write about. For sure, if it’s only one of those fuelled up days, I might even draft up to a 3000 word blog. (That’s seldom though!).

However, guess what? Suddenly while listening to my playlist music on youtube, I heard this upbeat, youthful, inspiring song. Continue reading

Thoughts on Life’s Mystery

chest-pain

I’m having some chest pains a couple of days lately. I don’t know why but I guess some eating habits of mine need to change. Feeling this, suddenly thoughts about death and leaving my two small daughters behind is making me sad and a lot fearful. How I pray that my time has not yet come. I am not afraid of death itself though, but I don’t think I will be happy in my second life not being able to take good care of my daughters.

Now as I write, my thoughts shift to those people suffering some kind of pain from any type of illness, trauma or accident. For sure, their head is also full of questions, anxiety and worry. Thoughts like what will happen next, when will the pain end, will there be solutions, what were the causes and most especially how will this affect my loved ones. Continue reading
