I am not a very patient person that is why I am so grateful that God bless me more of it today! All my five classes were extremely uncooperative, rowdy and rebellious. I could not even hear my own voice while teaching so I had to stop and took a seat and let them continue what they please. I usually chide them verbally but I decided to skip that segment because after 2 or 3 minutes of verbal scolding they begin to ignore me again. Today, I simply gave everyone a cold shoulder, and to my surprise they stayed quiet while doing something else…
I’m praying that one day, these adolescents will become mature and appreciate what they have and regard education with high respect and value.
So thankful that my little girl is growing healthy and well. She’s 6 months now and she grows vivacious! It’s easy to make her laugh and smile. Even strangers or nurses at the hospital where we had her immunization were pleased at her friendly manners.
On her 6th month birthday, I let her wore her new dress which liked very much. I bought it along with her baptismal white dress. I thought she’d feel discomfort since the material is not as soft as cotton cloth but I was wrong. The little princess seemed to make a curtsy and I took it as a ‘thank you, mom!’ 🙂
Her Aunt Theresa was so delighted when Sydnee mimic her for a selfie pose! This little girl really knows how to lift our spirits after a very tiring day. And we all love this photo! 🙂
Who are your neighbors? Are you friends with them, barely say hi, or avoid them altogether? Tell us a story — real or invented — about the people on the other side of your wall (or street, or farm, or… you get the point).
Photographers, artists, poets: show us NEXT DOOR.
My little space is my haven and I am peaceful in here. My neighbors are Thai people and I’m glad to be next door to them. They are peace-loving and polite people; they don’t play loud music, no banging of doors and even late night parties. If they do so, only on reasonable and special occasions. I guess I found a perfect place to shelter my weary body and mind after the day’s work. Although they don’t start a conversation or even try to have one with me because of the language difficulty, I can sense they’re nice. No word but all smiles is fine with me especially I’m not fluent in Thai to explain or converse with them. So, I find that so harmonious because I want my home to be always in order and quiet. My neighbors say ‘sawadee kha/kap (hi/hello) when I catch them on the stairs on my way to work or back from work, at the laundry area or even when I see them at the nearest shops. For over 4 years of my stay in my apartment, I never heard any trouble caused by the nearby residents.
My neighbors are just perfect for me!
I hope everyone reading this is having a good day. If you are not, don’t worry we have 12 more hours to change that. The flowers and plants without minds of their own are battered by strong winds but they’re still watered and able to blossom. So be cheerful, let’s enjoy the day and spread love!
Wishing a beautiful Thursday from the land of smiles.
I found this tree trunk at one of the parks I like to spend time with when I was pregnant. I thought there’s a face on it so I grab my camera and took a photo of it…
I edited the photo and it ended like this… so weird!
