Share a story where it was very difficult for you to forgive the perpetrator for wronging you, but you did it–you forgave them.
My story is about what happened to me in school when I was seven years old. One of my classmates did not do her homework, she asked me to lend her mine, I refused, the bell was rung, I did not have enough time as we were required to run to join the rest of the people for prayer.
When we came back to our classroom, the teacher asked to see our homework, I took out my exercise book and opened the page where I had done my homework, to my dismay the page was missing. When I ran for prayer my classmate stayed back and tore off the page from my book.
I was scared and did not know how I should tell the teacher, what happened. I went up to her and showed my book with the missing page. the teacher asked my classmate if she tore the page, at first she denied, when she was asked the second time she admitted tearing the page.I cannot remember if she was punished, I was happy that the teacher believed me.
When the full moon happens, you turn into a person who’s the opposite of who you normally are. Describe the new you.
I’m always a happy person by nature. A full moon to me means a joyous occasion, everything is bright, the dark night changes into a very bright sky, the earth, the people are all happy.
To be opposite of me would be to be an unhappy me instead of enjoying the bright moon I’m sad, I’m cranky,I dislike everything around me . I sit and sulk, I stop smiling, I want everyone to leave me alone and I write poems that makes humanity cringe.
I’d rather write a poem that makes all of nature happy, like:
This morning I communicated with my blogger friends online. Although I’ve never seen or heard them I’m comfortable writing to them. There are so many options in English , the vocabulary helps, it is quite easy to communicate with friends using words.
I’m able to convey my feelings using words connected to feeling. In fact I’ve written a long email to my friend, who has no trouble understanding what I’m thinking . Sometimes icons are helpful to convey a message such as happy, unhappy.
We cry for lots of reasons: sadness, pain,fear….. and happiness.When was the last time you shed tears of joy?
Almost every day I feel joyous. The very fact that the snow, winter, the freezing days, the ice on streets and pavements have run its course, that this unpleasant weather is on its way out, gives me relief and happiness.
Sunset at 4 pm is such a difficult thing to bear, I look forward to longer hours of daylight and warm sunshine with pleasure .
I am longing to see and feel the fresh air without covering myself from head to foot, the green grass, trees covered with leaves, birds singing, announcing the end of winter and welcoming the arrival of summer.
This is when I say yes the happy days are here again!
What do you display on the walls of your home—-photos,posters,artwork, nothing? How do you choose what to display? What mood are you trying to create?
When we display anything on the walls of our house, we think of the room. Our living room walls are decorated with artwork, a part of the wall has pictures of birds, another part has animals, still another with flowers. We also try to hang pictures that goes well with the color of the paint on the walls. We try to create nature and how it adds to the beauty of the environment.
The dining room walls have pictures of fruits, vegetables and some gardens with trees hanging down with colorful fruits and vegetables.
The bedroom displays family pictures, there are portraits and single photographs showing different photos of children from the infant stage to the current.
The walls with the photos and pictures is to create happy memories of our family.
Do you have a mentor? Tell us about him or her? Are you mentor to someone else? Tell us what that relationship has added to your life.
I do not have a mentor, I really didn’t have one when I was in school. I always felt I was able to take care of everything myself, it worked out all right for me.
I was a mentor to someone at one time, she and her husband had jobs for a while, then lost the jobs because job situation was getting worse at that time.
She asked me once what could she do to get a job, I knew she had a masters degree in Mathematics, I advised her to register for an education degree, she agreed and did as I told her. Her friends discouraged her, they informed her, they didn’t think she’d get a job in any school even if she had an education degree.
They were wrong she was hired in a private school when she completed her degree and was happy, she used to tell me about her job. I encouraged her not to give up because the salary was low.
I have no contact with her now, I am glad she listened and was doing well. She always thanked me for encouraging her.
