My Sweet Spot

I’m not one to make new year resolutions but after reading Habakkuk 2:2,
I decided to.
          ” And the LORD answered me:
             Write the vision, make it plain on tablets so he may run who reads it.”

So, these are my Top 5 resolutions.

1.    Be Happy and laugh More:

scientist say that, when we laugh, endorphin are released through out our body. These endorphin stimulate our muscles, nerves, organs and tissues. Studies show that this helps to relieve pain and stress, thereby promoting the function of the immune system.

True Friends.

Thanks to Facebook, I have nine hundred and four ‘friends’

The definition of ‘friend’ seems to have changed over the years. However, I’m sticking to the old definition which states –

Friend – a person known WELL to another and regarded with liking, affection and loyalty. – Collins dictionary.

It is awesome to have hundreds of people celebrate my successes by liking and commenting on my posts. However, it is more awesome to have friends who would like and comment on my posts and in addition to that, would stick to me through thick and thin.

The Next Best Selling Author.

The life that we live and the things we expose our kids to, opens their minds to possibilities.

So, I recently, I started writing a lot and this has gotten my daughter interested in writing.

She told me few days ago that she would love to be an author and I asked her to get to work. I was still trying to put my draft together for a book I’m working on and my daughter has already finished writing and illustrating a book.bella 1

Guilty Mum

One area of my life that I always get kudos for is how well I raise my kids.

“ your kids are so well behaved …”

I hear that all the time. However, I don’t have the fulfilment of a perfect mother.  God has been my cover up and that’s the absolute truth!!!

I try my best, I really do but sometimes,
the short-cuts are my only option and so far, I have gotten away with it.
I haven’t been privileged to have help from family when it comes to babysitting my kids and when I desperately NEED my ‘ME’ time,
my TV helps out.
