With a bit of luck

Two ducks near the Love Tower 

Trapped inside the jar-

 

“Quack!”, quacks lovey duck.

-Froggy’s Jar of Lemon Dreams…

Here they fell in love!

Captured inside a glass jar,

Prisoner in a jar
Flexing my big blue muscles
I lost my undies

“I thought raindrops fall?”,
quacks duck under umbrella.
Wondering who pissed?!?

Bitter angel trapped.
Tricked by slippery smiles,
power of ascent gone.

Sunday’s Sashay

anigif

Check this out and see if it fits:

Inner Peace

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment ,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

…..Then You Are Probably The Family Dog!

And you thought I was going to get all spiritual. 

“Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. 

It’s the way it is.

The way you cope with it is what makes the difference”

My Moments

When sleep finds me sleeping like an angel….My Moments2 My Moments3

My work during Ramadan is in the night.  From 9pm to 2am 😦
So when I come home, it’s hard to sleep and once finally I fell asleep…  I sleep real deep and it’s hard again to wake up…  Yay!  I would wake up forcing myself to get up.  And you bet my day is very short 😦 and so I missed going to Gym ( an excuse actually, hahaha) But the thing is I like it better to go to gym in the morning than to do it in the afternoon.

Anyways, it will be over soon and I look forward for my one week holiday 🙂

The Notebook

Revisited…

The movie above is worth watching.  I just love this movie.  True Love Never Dies…

“The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they  just make the best of everything they have.”

and a similar very touching love story is written below contributed by Jane W.

How to Dance in the Rain

It was a  Busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80’s arrived to  have Stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an  Appointment at 9:00 am. I took his vital signs and had him Take a seat,  knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to See him. I  saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, it was well healed, so I Talked  to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and  Redress his wound. While Taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had  another doctor’s appointment This morning, as he was in such a hurry. The  gentleman told me no, that he Needed to go to the nursing home to eat  breakfast with his wife. I inquired as To her health. He told Me that she had  been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer’s Disease. As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that  she no longer knew Who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years  now. I was surprised, and asked him, ‘And You still go every morning, even  though she doesn’t know who you are?’ He smiled as he patted my hand and said,  ‘She doesn’t know me, but I still know who she is.’

 I had to hold back tears  as he left, I had Goose bumps on my arm, and thought, ‘That is the kind of  love I want in my Life.’

 True love is Neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an Acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.  The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they  just make the best of everything they have. I hope you share This with someone  you care about. I just did.

 Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, But  how to dance in the Rain!!

#27 All Time Favorite Post- “Today Is A Beautiful Day But I Cannot See It”

I received this by mail from a friend a year ago so I thought it would be nice to share it here.  I checked it out and it’s very famous around the net.  Everyone is sharing this beautiful and inspirational story.
Truly sharing is caring 🙂

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet.  He held up a sign which said:  “I am blind, please help.”  There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by.  He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it Around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words. Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed The sign came to see how things were.

The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one who changed my sign This morning?  What did you write?”

The man said, “I only wrote the truth.  I said what you said but in a different way.” I wrote: “Today is a beautiful day but I cannot see it.”

Both signs told people that the boy was blind.  But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people that they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story:  Be thankful for what you have. . .  Be creative.  Be innovative. Think differently and positively. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.  Face your past without regret.
Handle your present with confidence.  Prepare for the future without fear.  Keep the faith and drop the fear.

The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling. And even more beautiful, is knowing that you are the reason behind it!!!

Delight Yourself- Alzheimer’s Color Test…

Color Test

These are the things we’re supposed to do to remove the cholesterol around our brain and try to slow up Alzheimer’s Disease. It took me 3 times before I could finally tell this brain of mine to concentrate. A great test, do it until you get 100% It takes an average of 5 tries to get to 100%. Follow the directions! It’s harder than it seems, as it should be! A brain waker-upper for today! Have fun!

Click here to start

This is pretty neat! See how you do with the colors! Bet you can’t get 100% on the first try! But I’m rooting for you…

The Blind Girl

contrib by Sandi W.

There was a girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone,

except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend,

‘If I could only see the world, I will marry you.’

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off,

she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend… He asked her,

‘Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?’

The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed

eyelids shocked her. She hadn’t expected that. The thought of looking at them the

rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him.

Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying:

‘Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.’
