A Burnt Bread……….

One morning Stanley’s day got spoilt completely as it started with a burnt toast that his beloved Mother served him at breakfast.  He asked her in a not so kind tone, “Mom I have always boasted about your culinary skills to all my friends, then tell me dear Mom, why today, this burnt toast that you have served me for breakfast.”  She did not say anything but went about her work.  But since he was getting late to go to work, Stanley picked up the burnt toast and most unwillingly took it along with him. 

Looking at the burnt toast he did not feel like eating it at all and threw it out of his car in a most rude manner.  To his surprise he saw one poor lady coming with a small child, picked up the burnt toast, cleaned it, brushed the dirt stuck on the toast and lovingly fed the child who was in tattered and dirty clothes, playing with her ragdoll.  Seeing this, Stanley was actually ashamed of himself and his bad behavior. 

He immediately parked his car at the side, bought some milk, toast and bread and gave it lovingly to the small child and her mother who willingly accepted giving him a broad smile.  She further said, “Thank you son, you are a God send to us.  We have not eaten anything from two days.” Stanley, had tears in his eyes and also felt so pleased that he could help these poor souls.  He decided there and then to never hurt his loving mother and to be grateful and respect her for whatever food she serves whether it is palatable or not. 

He further said to himself that he would never ever waste food, however rich he was, as this was not a good habit at all. God had been so benevolent to him and he had never gone hungry to bed in his entire life.  There are so many needy people in the World who do not even have a morsel to eat and here he was given everything and was wasting and throwing the food that was not made nicely by his mom.

Henceforth, he decided that he would teach everyone this important aspect of being compassionate towards the needy and he will never forget that little child he saw happily eating a burnt toast.  Water, food, air, clothes are so important and valuable to the poor and why must we who have been given luxuries in life throw away because of a simple toast that got burned. 

Humanity is greater than wealth. Let us learn to be humble and kind to others. Sometimes what looks like an obstacle in your path is actually a gift meant to move you in a different direction.

LET US ALL BE SELFLESS AND WORK TOWARDS SELFLESSNESS. IT IS IN GIVING THAT WE RECEIVE SO MUCH LOVE AND HAPPINESS.

A Beautiful Brunette………..

A beautiful brunette was she

As slippery as an eel can be

Svelte and graceful, a perfect ten

Short hair with a far-flung flair

She oozed passion and craving

In all her paramours she flirted

Showed off her oomph in short mini skirts

Walked in her high pencil heels

In all her glitters and gold

Strolling the boulevard impishly

With her Louis Viton and Gucci

And a poodle by her side

An envy of the ladies for sure

Who sniggered at her and whispered

“Look at her, she is shameful

To all us womanhood”

But she was a darling to the menfolk

Who swooned like little puppies?

At her beck and call

Could not resist her charm

Love was never in her dictionary

Cared less for her lovers

Who were like unwanted toys to play with

A beautiful brunette she sure was……………..

My Precious Love………..

Perfect Love - DesiComments.com

Tears as precious pearls

Flowed and filled up the streams

Ravishes a frightful heart

The soft heart was broken into tiny pieces

Without repair for days together

Then True Love came riding on his bicycle

As swiftly as he could to console his Beloved

With a Bouquet of pink roses

A lovely gift all for his Precious love

Whispers in loves forlorn ears

Come my darling, my gorgeous love

A gift from the Gods have I brought for you

Awaken with the freshness of a dew drop

Do not despair, do not cry my love

I shall give you all my comfort

Caress you like a gentle flower

Take you in my arms forever

I have tasted loves cup of wine

From your pretty red lips

How can I can ever think of leaving you my sweetest

You are a Precious Love of my life…………..

Short Stories full of wisdom and insight…….

A FATHER’S ADVICE:

Today, my father told me, “Just go for it and give it a try!  You do not have to be a professional to build a successful product.  Be motivated and courageous.  Amateurs started Google and Apple.  Professionals built the Titanic.”

THE POWER OF UNIQUENESS:

Today, I asked my mentor, a very successful businessman in his 70’s, what his top three tips are for success.  He smiled and said, “Read something no one else is reading, think something no one else is thinking and do something no one else is doing.

 LOOKING BACK:

Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I am working on for my Psychology class.  When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said: “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile and at peace with yourself.”

TRY AND YOU SHALL KNOW:

When I was 8 years old, I wanted to play baseball. I asked my father, “Dad can I play baseball?” He said, “You will never know until you try.” When I was a teenager, I asked him, “Dad can I become a surgeon?” He replied, “Son, you will never know until you try.” Today I am a surgeon, just because I tried and listened to the encouraging words of my father.

GOODNESS & GRATITUDE:

Today, after a 72-hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug.  When I tensed up, she realized I did not recognize her.  She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the sincerest smile and said, “On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center.  I wanted to say thank you for saving my life.”

A DOOR CLOSES TO OPEN ANOTHER:

Today at 7 a.m., I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the money, so I went into work.  At 3 p.m., I got laid off.  On my drive home I got a flat tire.  When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat too.  A man in a BMW pulled over, gave me a ride, we chatted for a while and then he offered me a job.  I start tomorrow.

LOOKING BACK:

Today, as my father, three brothers and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died.  She simply said, “I feel so loved right now.  We should have gotten together like this more often.” There were tears rolling down our cheeks and we all realized the importance of being connected with family and friends.

INNOCENCE:

Today, in the cutest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me to start recycling.  I chuckled and asked, “Why?” she replied, “So you can help me save the planet.” I chuckled again and asked, “And why do you want to save the planet?” “Because that is where I keep all my stuff” she said.

JOY:

Today, when I witnessed a 27-year-old breast cancer patient laughing hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter’s antics, I suddenly realized that I need to stop complaining and crying for what I have not got in my life and start celebrating it again.

KINDNESS:

Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me.  He helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving, he said, “I hope you feel better soon.”

When you ask for the GOOD in others you DISCOVER the BEST in yourself too. We do not need everything to enjoy life.  We already have LIFE to enjoy everything. Everything has been given to us. Let us make others happy. REAL HAPPINESS LIES IN MAKING OTHERS HAPPY AND JOYOUS.

Tiny Happy Things that Please Me……..

Image result for images of tiny little things that please me

Sunshine streaming thru my Window

Skies a clear blue tint

Cool breeze is in the air

Singing along with the Radio

The first sip of hot coffee

Fried eggs sunny side up

Hot buns, dollops of butter

Talking to my tweeting sparrows

Enjoying this moment of bliss

Starting to read a book I love

Feeling of joy caring for my petite garden

A beautiful text from a friend

“You are my heart song

I sing night and day for you”

Makes me love him more and more

Evening time is a long walk

With friends along the promenade

Late night snacks and soft music

Fluffy blankets just out of the dryer

Split second of gratitude

“Thank You, God for a Wonderful day”

With a loving smile on my face

I am of to bed under my duvet

These are the tiny happy things

That pleases me a lot………………..

Trust in the Process……….

Pin by Manisha K on Relationship,Trust, love & life Quotes (With ...

We must always remember that:

Grapes must be crushed at all times to make wine.

Diamonds are always formed under high pressure.

Olives are pressed to release their oil.

Seeds grow in darkness and germinate in soft soil.

Hatred breeds out of jealousy and anger.

A child is born after nine months.

Copper and Iron are melted at very high temperature.

Smiles and laughter kills every negativity.

Healthy and good relationships bring Love and Joy.

The more you know about life, the more you suffer. It’s okay to unplug.

Whenever you feel crushed, anger, under pressure, pressed, negative or in darkness you are in a powerful place of transformation.  Always learn to trust in the process. Everything that has come will soon pass. Learn to have immense patience and act with love and kindness with one another. We all need each other in our lives.

Sometimes we must express our gratitude for the small and simple things that are given to us.  There is a calmness to a life lived in gratitude, a quiet joy felt in our hearts and beings.

God has a reason for allowing things to happen. He knows what He is doing. We may never understand His wisdom, but we simply have to TRUST HIS WILL WITH IMMENSE FAITH.……….

Can I Take You………

Forest Fairy Picture #114366478 | Blingee.com

I was inspired by My Friend, Jonathan from noblesthemes blog. He writes amazing and beautiful poems. This poem of his “Can I Take You………..” moved me to write a lovely poem. Thank you Jonathan. My verses are given below:

My Precious Love,

Can I take You alone on this journey?

Where there is just you and me

Hand in hand we can walk together

In tune with our magical steps

Whistling winds calling us in a whisper

In the quietude and silence of the now

Under the gazing twinkling stars

Guiding us on a beautiful path

Finding gratitude in the little things

Complete in each other’s arms.

At a distance we can hear

Waves splashing against the rocks

Creating rhythmic sounds of silence

Paddling our feet in the cool waters

Laughing like carefree souls gone crazy

This radiant moment is ours to cherish

Can I take You, My Precious Love?

Where Love in all her tenderness

Clasps us in her hearts embraces

Where Joy and Happiness pervades

In all their grandeur and passion……….

A Profound Life Message: Positives v/s. Negatives…………

Image result for images of a mother and daughter at a dining table

A young woman was sitting at her dining table, worried about taxes to be paid, housework to be done and to top it all, her extended family was coming over for a festival lunch the next day. She was feeling miserable, overburdened and not knowing what to do. At this moment she was not feeling very thankful as she was very nervous and full of anxiety.  As she turned her gaze sideways, she noticed her young daughter scribbling furiously into her notebook.

She asked her, “What are doing in your notebook.” The daughter said, “My teacher asked us to write a paragraph on “Negative Thanksgiving” for homework today. She asked us to write down things that we are thankful for, things that make us feel not so good in the beginning, but turn out to be good after all.”  With curiosity, the mother peeked into the book. This is what her daughter wrote:

“-I’m thankful for the bad-tasting medicine that I have to take compulsorily, because it helps me feel better.

I’m thankful for waking up to the beautiful rays of the sun, because it means I’m still alive and fresh.

Im thankful for doing my homework after school everyday, because it will help me to pass my class.

-I’m thankful for everything that has been given to me by my Creator, because I can then understand the values of life.”

It then dawned on the mother, that she had a lot of things to be thankful and grateful for. She thought again to herself that she had to pay taxes but that meant she was fortunate to be employed.

She had housework to do but that meant she had a shelter to live in.  She had to cook for her many family members for lunch but that meant she had a family with whom she could celebrate and be joyous and happy.

She was thankful for her daughter who opened her eyes and taught her how to appreciate everything in life. Negatives are always there but with determination and courage we can move towards positiveness and be inspired with faith and trust.

The moral here is we generally complain about the negative things in life but we fail to look at the positive side of it.  What is the positive in your negatives? Look at the better part of life today and make your everyday a great one with Love and Kindness.  Life is about being happy and taking everything as it comes with a challenge and persistence. Let Go of things that are not wanted in your life and embrace a beautiful life with great fortitude. Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.

Be Happy and Blessed Always.

Flowers in the Wind……….

Lady of autumn - Fantasy & Abstract Background Wallpapers on Desktop Nexus  (Image 845389)

I see fresh dainty Flowers dancing in the wind

Merging in petals pastel ecstasy

Unfolding prettily as tulips, cherries, daffodils,

Sunflowers, roses or lavenders

Wrapped in delicate corals, reds or pinks

Unharmed in wooded greens

A coat of rainbow’s musical hymn

Wind blowing them upon my skin

And sunshine reflected in my hair

I find delight in their scented smells

Gazing at the falling flowers, I long to see a flower pure

And wish to reach the sky azure

Every moment is a priceless joy

With my sling bag in tow

I love to run wild with the whistling winds

Among the healing greens that I call home

And with my spirits full of excitement

I walk with the flowers in the wind………………
