We sometime forget to sit down and take a breath, we forget sometimes how as little as a rose could lighten up the whole room. If you have the menatlity to put others down around you to make you happy, you are in a rude awakening. It’s best to keep things simple and positive.
I tend to stockpile alot of stuff after the amazing sales at the stores such as Kroger, CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens, etc. I look through all of stuff that I barely touch or use, I donate to the church or food bank or to senior homes. That put a smile on their faces!! Which in turn makes me feel good and happy that I have such a warm heart to help others in time of need!
I love cooking. I’m very passionate about my cooking. This past christmas was my first family gathering at my house. I got up early in the dawn and cook different kind of foods that my family do enjoy. They all enjoyed my cooking and had a good time, that time alone make all of us happy!
I love to help others in time of need such as finding them good deals such ad diapers, food, I go and help them find deals. My friend calls me a coupon queen, lol. I havent mastered more than 90 percent saving yet but I’m a serious couponer. That makes others happy as well as I am.
I try to give as much as I can so I can set an example for my boys such as donating clothes, toys, stuff that I don’t need. I recently donated 3 bags full of groceries to my son’s grandmother to give to her friends. She smiled big and thanked me.
It doesn’t matter how small or big you generously give, it makes someone’s day. Even though you have a bad day, you will find a little thing that makes you happy such as your kid walk up to you and give you a single rose.
Let me leave you with something.. a poem I wrote in 2006. Its called Rare
Just someting you pick off of the ground
Make your head spinning round and round
Imagine yourself being a rose
That engulfs and wrinkles up your nose
Smell something so intelligenous
That leaves other flowers so jealous
It has thorns on each layers.
hurt so beautiful. Oh, it does powers.
Petal stands out bring the imagination close & close
Feeling so silky, something loose
Each petal you peel, it just flows
Into a thin air, making people say many wows
Oh my lord, did you see that?!See what?
Each petal has its unique colors
They all comes in different flavors.
I pick the ones that fall on my feet
Oh what wonders it does – it just spark
Being on a cloud nine, bring what’s front – it dark
As it takes through journey, it provide a shelter
Through all things I find, it become my breather.
Just like a rose petal, you are rare.
