Tribute to my Dad on Father’s Day

The following is a tribute written by one of my fifth grade students, Raquel, to her father who had died when she was a toddler. Even though her memories of him are fleeting she holds on. I hope you found that it touched you as it had me.

Dear Dad,

I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought yesterday and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which I’ll never part. GOD has you in his arms and I’ll have you in my HEART.

Even though I don’t have my Dad here with me, I have a father figure and his name is Gregory. He’s smart, generous and caring he’s one of several SUPER DADS ever. He deserves nothing less from me. I LOVE him just like my Dad.

Happy Father’s Day! To all you wonderful and caring fathers out there!

From: Raquel.

‘My Dog Spot’

My dog’s name is spot
I love him a lot
His nick-name is dot
because dot rhymes with spot
he like to ripe my shoes
as well as things in my room
My dog spot is short
other dogs like to take
advantage of him a lot
but I make sure no
other dog hurt my little dot
Spot like to play outside a lot
spot is not harmful dog
he is a nice spot
I would not give away mu spot
because I love him a lot.

Tender and Tolerant



Tender and Tolerant
by Charles R. Swindoll
The fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.
Proverbs 18:4

How far you go in life depends on your being tender
with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic
with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong.
Because someday in life you will have been all of these. –
–George Washington Carver
I have admired those words for years.
They reflect a perspective easily forgotten in a dizzy
schedule of demands and deadlines.It is easy in such a scene
to become shortsighted, to think that now is forever.
But those who sustain a close companionship with
wisdom tend to be more tender, compassionate,
sympathetic, and tolerant than those whose world
revolves around themselves.
With wisdom comes depth and stability.

When we navigate through life under

full sail with wisdom at the helm,

we may not miss all of the storms,

but we will have the strength to persevere.

We can face the unforeseen without the fear of sinking.

I post this quote on behalf of a friend for a friend.

I request all my friends who visit my site to

pray for a young friend of mine who has been

recently diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma multi-cells.

She is in a distant land all by herself

without any family around except for

her beloved husband for support.

She is away from her two beloved children

and she need our prayers.

Presently she is undergoing PET-Scan and chemotherapy.

I beseech your prayers for her to have all the strength she needs.

Basic Instincts

picture it and write

picture it and write/ via ermilia blog


Glowing, seductive.

Snooping, itch to know more

Irresistible dragging’s from within the core

Ablaze stare for a foretaste, but yields eye full

Having to belie the twitch and scuttle, or drift down to the pill

Beyond boundaries boarder less, dreams flooded slide,

Mists of pleas preventing one’s flight yonder glide

All comes alive, the last breath, the last shout, last look,

 the last beat’ the last throb and even last prayer.

Stop the enflamed glows jumping from fist. Stop!

With no ifs and buts;

Beams beeping Brilliance

 Bitterly bright

My basic instincts

Beneath my Wings

Happy Mother's Day greetings to all the mothers.

Happy Mother’s Day greetings to all the mothers.

I received this beautiful picture from a friend of mine. It was sent to my mail and I thought, Why not share the love and care portrayed, in this photo, with all the mothers who blog. I wish I knew the source of this picture besides from where I received: my mail. I do hope that I have not offended anyone. I could not help it but to post and  shout out.
Happy mother’s Day to You! 
Please forgive me if I have not given credit to the real owners of this beauty.
Whoever took this picture thank you for bringing joy to all our mothers.

If I Could

If I could
Bear the burden of your sorrow,
I would.
If I could, but for a minute,
take away your pain
and make it mine,
I would.
If I could tell you
“there’s a reason for this,”
I would.
I’d do anything
To take away your hurt.
But sometimes the road of life
Makes unexplainable twists,
Unfortunate turns,
And the whole world
seems cold and heartless.
I can’t tell you
How sorry I am
That I can’t shelter you
from this.
But I want
To leave you with
This thought—
I’m here
If you want to talk,
If you want to cry,
If you can find comfort
In sharing silence with me.
You are my friend.
I care.
By: Renee Duvall
Dear friends, I received this hallmark card about 20 years ago,

Try Again

Try Again

Tis a lesson you should heed, try again

If at first you don’t succeed, try again

Then your courage should appear for if you will persevere

You will conquer, never fear, and try again

If you find your task is hard, try again

Time will bring you your rewards, try again

All that other folks can do

Why with patience may not you?

Only keep this rule in view, try again


This poem was sent to me by my friend, I thought sharing this message will replicate our effort to stay positive, to go forward, to be constructive, to remain united, to touch others with sincerity, to manifest determination and to practice selflessness when we feel down or unworthy.
