When times are tough, have faith…

I am told, when times are tough

you have to learn to let go

and let God and the Universe take the lead.

I try to do this, though often times it is difficult.



My phone rang the other day. It was my neighbor, she stated, “I was searching on the internet for someone to watch my dogs this coming weekend. She then went on to say, how pleased she was to find, my name and number online, under both dog and cat sitting. She wanted to know if I was available for hire?  I felt really confused, but said “Yes, I am.”

I can honestly tell you… I have never put my name and number out on the net as a dog or cat sitter. Though, I HAVE been considering it.

What I DO know:

  1. She lost her husband just a year ago… and has been working very hard at finding the positives in her life and moving forward a little at a time.
  2.  I am going through a rough patch and financially things are a bit tight.  I have been praying and asking God and the universe for guidance.

What I DON’T know:

How my name and number ended up on the net?

How it could have possibly shown up on her web search?

What is truly interesting:

How did it happen, just at a time when we both needed a little help?


I believe, there can only be ONE answer.  🙂


Kind Regards and feeling extremely grateful – K

Love truth

Truth…such a word with power. People say they want to know it but once known, is usually not well taken.

Yes, the truth hurts and believe me I’ve had to shock it many a times. But it is life, you need to shock a lot of things.

You made errors? Be ready to be reprimanded.

You lied? Be ready to regret it.

You stole? Be ready to account for it.

You failed a course? Be ready to spend some sleepless nights to catch up.

You didn’t listen? Be ready to bear the consequences.

I think it’s a grace to have people who are willing to hurt us with the truth than fool us with lies. Sometimes I look at my family and a few friends who are honest with me and I feel like beating them up cuz they are seriously hurting me with whatever they are saying as true. But with much more discernment and maturity today, I totally love them cuz at the end of the day, all they want is the best for me.

So be grateful and praise the heavens for those true friends and family members you have. They are going to be your pillar when you’ll need a helping hand/ support. Let them hit you hard with the truth and while you cry while listening to it, smile cuz you know you’ll be better soon.

Love the truth cuz only the truth sets us free. Stop with the lies cuz they will cause you pain. Hold on to your life and never let nothing come in your way. Turn to your God for guidance for He is the way, the truth and the life. Give Him your all and trust in His ways. Say the truth, hear the truth, love the truth and be the truth. So give yourself the challenge to start saying the truth if you haven’t started already. Let it hurt but be at ease you were honest instead of a liar. God bless.

Young at heart – Prompt reply

Thank you GK for writing and challenging us to write on what makes us young at heart. This is mine:

The blue sky, so vast and clear

The white clouds, so pure and moving gently

The yellow sun, so bright and shinning majestically

Makes me wanna walk freely and maybe bare.


The grass is so green and soft to the touch

The flowers are so beautiful in its outburst of colors

The birds chirping and singing sweet songs

Makes me wanna lie in d sun and enjoy nature’s beauty.


The children playing in the parks

Their voices, their laughs are a joy to my ears

The picnics, the riding just to discover the environment

Makes me wanna break free and live in d moment.


Then comes the night, with a full moon in the sky

Surrounded by an army of pretty little stars

The whistling of d wind and d raindrops on my roof

Makes me wanna dance n then find comfort in my bed.


What makes me young at heart? Kids and Nature because even when I’m down and feeling empty, I just look around and see its beauty and know life is beautiful. Its the little things in life that makes it worth living.
