Don’t make them ashamed of you.

When you were born, I believe, your parents were happy and proud of you. They were happy and proud to have a child like you. Did they celebrate? Most probably they did. I can visualize friends and relatives coming from far and near with gifts to celebrate. It was a great time.IMG_20141226_135843

Everybody was happy and proud of you.

What is the situation today? Are these same people still happy and proud of you? Is
your country proud of you?

If you are making the most of your talents, chances are high your parents, friends and admirers are proud of you.

If you are honest, diligent, and determined to make it big in life, they will be proud of you. If you are hard working and responsible, chances are your family, friends and community will be proud of you. Your country will be proud of you as well.

We are already moving

We are already moving

If you are irresponsible and live a reckless life that is marked by many vices, your people cannot be proud of you.You country cannot be proud of you. You have no reason to do this.

You owe your people – family, friends, and country, a duty to make them proud of you. And if you do not make them proud of you, please, spare them the sorrow of making them asham

ed of you.

Sweet, sweet mother

Sweet, sweet, mother;
Lovely, sweet mother;
Each time I think of you,
My heart will throb with love;
And then I ask myself,
What I would have been,
Without a soul like you;
For nine long months,
And every blessed second,
You carried me in your womb,
You thought me how to love,
Before I came into the world.
Before I opened my eyes,
I enjoyed the best of love.
And when I came into the world,
You were still the very one,
Who taught me how to love;
So well you did your job;
It’s deeply buried in me;
You did it not in words;
You did your work in action;
You showered me with love;
And showed indeed you cared;
I buried that in my heart;
And never will let it go;
Sweet, sweet mother,
How sweet, indeed, you are!
The love I have for you,
It’s hard for me to say;
Thank you for all your love;
You’re the sweetest one I know;
You taught me how to love;
And now I know to love;
And even as I say this now,
You remain the first to cry
When you see I have a pain;
The love you have for me,
I see it in your eyes;
If the world is hard on me,
You’re the one to whom I turn;
And never will there be a day;
That you’ll not be for me;
When I think of all this, mum,
My tongue is simply tied;
Thank you, my sweet love;
That’s all I can say to you;
Thank you for all your love;
Thank you for so much you care;
Thank you so very much;
You’re the sweetest soul I know.

The most hunted game in the world

Do you know the most hunted game in the world?
That which people seek more than anything else?
It has many names;
But one name dominates – SUCCESS.
Whether it means
To have money;
To get power;
To rise in position;
To shine and sparkle like the sun;
To be a star;
To have fame and be acclaimed;
It is one and the same thing – SUCCESS;
So sought after;
Yet so difficult to get.
SUCCESS, what makes you so difficult?
Whatever the case, this is my pledge:
No matter how slippery you are,
No matter how difficult it is to get you,
Whether you like me or not,
I shall seek you;
And I shall not stop until I get you.

New blogging forum embraced

The way people from all over the world have been embracing and are joining the International Friendship Blogging Forum reflects the desire that burns in people’s hearts to see all artificial boundaries between the people of the world broken down.

We may be of different colors and races, live in different geographical locations, speak different languages, practice different religions, and belong to different political schools of thought, but we are all basically the same.

We have the same basic needs. We have the same likes and dislikes. We have the same basic feelings, desires, and wants. We want to love and be loved; we want to belong; to have a sense of self-worth, and to enjoy a good degree of autonomy.

Human nature was meant to be pure like a brand new computer. Then the force of darkness dropped an evil virus into the human heart, corrupting it and thus the seed of evil was sown in the world, rooted on a foundation of greed, and vaulting ambition.

Ever since, it has been sprouting in the hearts some of us humans rendering us greedy, unscrupulous, hungry for power and ready to go to any length to grab the resources of the world only for ourselves.

This has made the world a wicked place, marked by all sorts of evil acts such including wars, stealing, corruption, exploitation of man by man, injustice, poverty, disease, suffering, and misery.

Over the years, humanity has been grappling with these worries, spending huge sums of money to clear the world of evil and make love and peace reign. Yet, the situation seems to grow worse everyday. The barriers of color, space, religion, language, and political ideologies separate the people of the world with different camps created here as people see themselves as opposed to others.

International Friendship Blogging Forum sees beyond all the barriers that keep humans apart; and sees the so-called differences as the Creator’s way of enriching humanity, offering us the opportunity to bring our various uniqueness to a common table, complement and enrich the common pot from which a common meal must be dished to nourish one another.

As International Friends, we shall journey together, in solidarity and love, growing together, supporting one another, lifting each other when we fall, and thus promoting the values that are needed to make the world an excellent place for all.

As a very wise man once said, sometimes great things have very humble beginnings. We could well be at the start of something greater for the world than we can even imagine. I want in a very special way to congratulate all of you who are the pioneers of this forum.  The first list of one hundred persons who have indicated their willingness to belong shall soon be published.

As it is said, “To create the olive, king of all trees, a hundred years is required.” We shall go patiently. Our olive tree is on it’s way. Many blessings to all.
