#ThankfulThursday – You!

Standard

Today I choose to celebrate a friend indeed, who is one in millions. We do have our moments, but have grown to understand each other’s idiosyncrasies and enjoy our silliness. This is me saying thank you for always…you are appreciated!

#ThankfulThursday – Humour

Standard

I hear things like “you are very mischievous or why are you so mischievous?” and I smile because I know I am or can be. I don’t know if there is a negative or positive mischief, if there’s none – then I’ve invented one. I love it that I find humour in that which was intended to upset me … sometimes. Actually King is good at this. Do I get upset? Yes, sometimes, but of course I know it’s a joke.

I enjoy watching people’s reaction when I do or say what I do or say. I enjoy the ‘innocence’ with which I try to keep a straight face, as opposed to the shock on your face. Can I do comedy in front of people…No! I just draw it up, share with King and we laugh our hearts out.

Today, I’ve had series of fun and I feel so alive. Yes, they say the “Economy is biting hard”, I don’t know if Economy’s teeth is complete, don’t worry, I won’t open its’ mouth to check or count the teeth. But I’m suggesting to the Economy, instead of biting, why don’t you try smiling? And that’s my 2 cents! Adios.

Celebrating Sunshine!

Standard

Some weeks back, maybe a month, I was thankful for Sunshine  and did an article on her.

Well, it was Sunshine’s birthday on the 24th and she’s 14! I’ve been there with her from birth and watch her grow delightfully. She’s been one of my inspirations for writing. Actually, my first journal was on her titled ‘Through Veda’s Eyes‘, by the time you get to read this journal, you will get to understand why I named her “Sunshine”.

 

She’s a breath of fresh air

With dark curly lovely hair

Her quest to know more is one each blessed child portrays

Understanding early commitment, she queried as we played

Now you have worn another ring, what will Uncle Kelvin says?

She helped, as we struggled to release my finger, Oh, the pain!

When we succeeded, don’t do that again the reprimand came

From my little, sometimes mischievous but brilliant dame

She knows what she wants and how to get it from me

I would love to say no, but for this one, I’m stuck, no free!

Happy Birthday my baby

If you forget anything, always remember I yob you so much, so much!
