Sip Your Coffee Nice and Slow……….


-Sip your coffee, nice and slow, no one ever knows when it is time to go. There will be no time to enjoy the glow, nor sit in leisure, so sip your coffee nice and slow. 

-Life is too short but feels pretty long, there is too much to do, so much going wrong, and most of the time you struggle to be strong, before it is too late and it is time to go. So sip your coffee nice and slow.

-Some friends stay, others go away, loved ones are cherished, but not all will stay, kids will grow up and fly away, there is really no saying how things will go, so sip your coffee nice and slow.

– Be to yourself and quietly observe people coming and going with their families and friends at this little quaint coffee shop with hot, hot brownies and croissants that simply melts in the mouth with a smile or a chit chat, or simply writing short stories over a warm cup of coffee, so sip your coffee nice and slow.

-Before you know it seasons have changed, those precious little moments are part of yesterday, most things have turned out relatively okay, and you finally reap what you have sown, so sip your coffee nice and slow.

-In the end it’s really all about love, for this world and its beauty and the stars above, for his grace in your life, for each present moment, smile and breathe and let your worries go, just sip your coffee nice and slow……………..


Take Time out for Yourself…………


A cobbler lived in a large town called Applestrow and as he was the only cobbler in town, he was responsible for repairing the boots of everybody else.  He worked day and night, never gave time to himself nor had time for his family.  He was very much appreciated by all his customers. However, he did not have time to repair his own boots when they became worn-out. This was not a problem at first, but over time, his boots began to deteriorate and fall apart.  While he worked feverishly on the boots of everyone else, his feet too got blisters and he started to limp and his health too with time deteriorated.

His customers started to worry about him, but he reassured them that everything was okay and he was in the pink of health.  However, after a few years, the cobbler’s feet were so injured, that he could no longer work and no-one’s boots got repaired.  As a consequence, soon the entire town started to limp in pain, all because the cobbler never took the time to repair his own boots.

This simple principle is so often disregarded by all of us.  We take things for granted and do not spare time for ourselves in the whole day because we feel that no one can do a better job than me and therefore we keep on tiring ourselves out. If you are in a responsible position and are one of the important links in the groups survival chain and if You do not look after yourself, after a while you will be no good to anyone else either.  Your best intentions will mean nothing and you will be unable to do what you are meant to do.

This goes for leaders, social workers, teachers, doctors even parents, breadwinners, homemakers and daughter-in-laws.  If you do not take the time out every day to care for yourself, how will you continue being fit enough to offer your attention to your loved ones.

Life is very short, no one has come here to stay permanently. All created things must pass so why struggle to work industriously when the whole world is an Illusion. So then, why not have sometime for yourself and enjoy life to the fullest. Your good deeds might seem invisible, but they soon leave a trail that is imprinted on the hearts of others.

A Wife’s Poem……..


This is a poem written by a newly wedded wife who tries her utmost to please her husband with the best of things but he always finds some fault in her and appreciates his mother in what she did for him.  Read her words:

He did not like the curry

And he did not like my cake

He said my biscuits were too hard

Not like his mother used to make.


I did not prepare the coffee right

He did not like the stew I made

I did not mend his socks

The way his mother used to do.


I pondered for an answer and prayed

I was looking for a clue

Isn’t there anything I could do

To match his mother’s shoe?


Then I smiled as I saw light

One thing I could definitely do

I turned around

And slapped him tight

Like his mother always used to do…………….



Funny Short Stories with a Twist……


A Diamond Owner:  A rat swallowed a diamond and the owner of the diamond contracted a man to kill the rat. When the rat hunter arrived to kill the rat, there were more than a thousand rats bunched up all together and one sitting by itself away from the pack. He spotted and killed the one sitting by itself and to the owner’s surprise, that was the exact one that had swallowed the diamond.

The amazed diamond owner asked, ‘how did you know it was that rat and why not the other rats?’  He responded; ‘Very easy, when idiots get rich, they don’t mix with others. They feel they know too much and others are looked down upon.’ 

-A Drug Store:  The owner of a drug store walks in to find a guy leaning heavily against a wall. The owner asks the new clerk, ‘What’s with that guy over there by the wall?’  The new clerk as if not perturbed, responds very coolly, ‘Well, he came in here this morning to get something for his cough. I could not find the cough syrup, so I gave him an entire bottle of laxative.’

The owner, completely wide-eyed and furious to his bones, shouts; ‘You idiot!  what have you done, you cannot treat a cough with a bottle of laxatives.’  The new clerk calmly responds; ‘Of course you can. Look at him, he is so embarrassed and afraid to cough.

-A GAME OF CHANCE:  One day some friends dropped in on a couple in the afternoon time at their house without warning for a cup of tea. The wife pulled the husband aside and said, ‘Darling, there is no sugar in the house, how can I serve tea?’  The husband winked at her and said, ‘Do not worry one bit, dear. Do as I am telling you.  Make tea without sugar for all, leave the rest to me.’ 

As soon as the tea was served the husband says to all the guests, ‘Let us all play a game of chance. One cup of tea has no sugar, whoever gets it will have to take us all out for dinner tonight.  The bill will be on him.’  The result was that all the guests claimed they had never tasted such sweet tea in their lives.

HEIGHT OF BAD LUCK: Your battery is only at 2% and all of a sudden you see your Boss upload pictures of himself and his family.  Wanting to impress him and give an encouraging comment, you quickly comment ‘cool pics’ but auto correct changes it to ‘cool pigs’ and your battery runs out.

Friends have a great laugh at these fun loving short stories that has a nice twist at the end. Enjoy Life and do not give lots of meaning to it. Life is always happier and stress free if we give Life a chance. Live Simply and Live Cheerfully and Merrily.



Cross Your Mistakes and Move On……………


When I started using pen in my primary school, and I made a mistake, I wold try hard to erase it before submitting the book to my teacher. Sometimes I would use chalk to clean my mistake but it later reappeared. So I began to use my own saliva and it sure worked, but only to leave holes in my books and usually my pages and books would look very ugly.  My teachers then used to beat me a lot for being outrageously dirty. They thought me to be very disobedient and dirty and so many times I was punished and had to stand out of the class for the whole day. But in fact, all I tried to do was to cover my error and blunders.

One day a kindhearted teacher who saw me getting reprimanded at all times from other teachers and who cared for me so much called me aside and he said, ‘Anytime you make a mistake, just cross it and move on.’ He also said further, ‘Trying to erase your mistakes would only damage your book to nothing.  Your efforts will go completely wasted. It will simply look like a torn and worn out paper.’

I told him in protest and very angrily, that I do not want people to see my mistakes. My loving teacher laughed and said, ‘Trying to erase your mistakes will make more people know about your mess and the stigma will be with you forever. You will not be able to face life and her circumstances in her face. Why do you want to carry on with such a burden and let others criticize you. Learn from your mistakes and let go of things that do not play any great roles in your life.’

Have you made some mistakes in life? Cross it over and move on. Do not expose yourself as a result of trying to cover your mistakes. Better things are ahead of you. Strike them off with a fresh note and have a great time. A moment of patience in a moment of anger, saves a thousand moments of regrets.

Live simply, love unconditionally and never change your originality for the sake of others, because no one can play your role better than you. So be yourself. You are the best………….







That cares so tenderly

Is cherished in a mother

Softening hearts to joy


That delicately caresses

a new born baby

bringing a radiant smile on its face


That spreads vibrancy

As a medley of colours

Creating masterpieces of artistic wonder


That ecstatically melts

Two Souls in love

Opening doorways to euphoria



That unfurls its beauty

Like a harmonious song

In natures mystical fragrances


At the touch of words

A Poet falls in raptures

Writing verses upon verses

Of his Poetic fantasies


To Remain Humble & Thankful………


  • A rich man looked through his window and saw a poor man picking up something to eat from his dustbin. He had not eaten from days and was so hungry that for him nothing mattered but some food. The rich man thought to himself and said, ‘Thank God I am not poor.’
  • The poor man looked around for a place to rest on the sidewalk and saw a naked man misbehaving on the street corner with some people. He said to himself, Thank God I am not mad.’
  • The mad man looked ahead and saw an ambulance carrying a patient. He said to himself, ‘Thank God I am not sick.’
  • Then a sick person in hospital who was waiting in the aisle for a Doctor’s visit, saw a trolley taking a dead body to the mortuary. He said to himself, ‘Thank God I am not dead’.  
  • Only a dead person cannot thank God for blessing him with His showers of Grace, because he is already dead. All these people were so happy that they were not in those other pair of shoes and thanked God for His little mercies that He had bestowed on them.

Why don’t you thank God today for all your blessings and for the gift of life for giving us another beautiful day? In hardships and sorrows be grateful and at peace. No life is more secured that a life that is surrendered to God. There is always something to be Thankful for each and every day, when you see the beauty of being alive under God’s grace.

Enjoy every moment in life that is priceless and precious. Remain humble and have a good heart and see yourself in others. Spread your wings far and beyond. Life is simple and beautiful.
