Wait a minute!!

When last did u take a good long look around you?? Taking notice of those little things. I’m sure there are lots of things you have never taken notice of and others you take for granted.

The Husband who comes home and doesnt kiss his wife. The wife who waits for her husband to come home and nags constantly. The husband who never goes out and thinks that: WOW! this would look good on my Wife and the Wife that compares her husband With their neighbour who has bought a car for his Wife. What do u know he did for the money? Try being content with what you have.

The Girlfriend who expects her Boyfriend to always buy her gifts and never thinks to buy him one. The boyfriend who always forgets his Girlfriends birthday, and she never complains even after reminding you The children who dont think its their place to say THANK YOU for the little things their parents can afford them at the moment. The children who dont think they have to put in the best to make their parents happy in school after the parents pay large amounts to keep them educated. what about those who cant go to school bcos their parents cant afford It.

The couple who gives birth to a baby and are not happy about the sex of the child: what should those without do? have u ever asked yourself that?. The family who kicks their dog around giving it minimal food, while it prevents petty thieves from stealing the household items. 

WAIT A MINUTE!!!!!!!
Take that extra second to be thankful, to appreciate, to listen, to show they are beautiful and that they exist and that you care.

 WAIT A MINUTE it just may change things around for you………………
WAIT A MINUTE and Enjoy life to the fullest




The tools, Our Gifts

The GOOD LORD, has given us all the tools that we need to live our lives Aright. 
The rest of the work, is left to us…

If we decide to farm, the work may be tedious and the time might seem long. Dont look at how far you have gone, but how well you are doing.
We all pass through tests every time. What proves if we have been good students is if we pass the test. If we dont, do we take the lessons we have learnt and use them in trying again or just cry our eyes out like a baby waiting to be picked up.

If we decide to use the Tools to farm, they may become dirty from use, but if we simply clean them daily. 

At the END of the Time, the results would be either SHINY TOOLS or FARM PRODUCE. ONLY TIME WOULD TELL…………..

Driving today?? Spare a life….

A few minutes ago, i watched a video that gave me goose bumps and brought me to tears.
Sometimes in the past i used to tell myself when i couldnt drive that driving to impress. It was nice and seeing people driving at top speed was COOL. BUT then, i always remembered that after being a VICTIM at a tender age of a serious car accident and couldnt walk for a while, it wasnt a COOL thing especially after the driver who caused the accident abandoned us and ran away.

Now, that i know how to drive i have leanrt alot, that the slightest mistake or loss of concentration can make EVERYTHING go wrong. 

Loss of concentration,
Driving at top speed (even when trying to impress a babe think about it: is the last smile you ever want to see in life, if you want to DIE in a car, or if you want to end up imprisoned after killing someone.) I ask all these so the Next time you want to accelerate you remember that it might just be you fastening the clock for TIME UP.

LATE FOR AN APPOINTMENT? (I guess we are all guilty of this one) “Oh Driver speed up, i’m in a HURRY” or the bike man “why are you being slow i’m late jare”why did u just not wake up early, that would have done the magic.

On my way to school one day i most students were in a hurry because we had been informed that strike had been called off and everyone wanted to get back and settled and thus the hurry.
I sat in front of the bus and the driver was driving at a considerable speed while trying to be careful because he wanted to quickly get back and pick up more students.
The other students were telling him to move faster that other buses were passing him by.
Next thing we knew, a bus almost hit us in his hurry to the FINISH LINE.

The driver having listened and let the pressure affect him increased his speed. I told him in a calm voice “If you want to kill yourself and others let me come down, because i’m not in a Hurry” thinking about what i just said he gradually he reduced his speed. (think about it every time you risk your life by asking the driver to be like his mates and SPEED UP it may be his time and you serve the punishment with him, GOING BEFORE YOUR TIME)

Lo and behold a few minutes later, we saw some commotion. An accident had happened and buses were packing to see what had happened.
The bus that sped past us a few minutes earlier had been involved. The driver hit a stationary trailer and he was DEAD. Almost all of them were INJURED and many feared DEAD

NOW ALL I ASK IS WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE THEM? OF LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST EVEN IF YOU ARE FEW HOURS LATE?!!

*ENSURE YOUR LOVED ONES ARE PROPERLY STRAPPED INTO THEIR SEATS*.

*DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN BELOW THE AGE OF 10/12 INTO THE FRONT SEATS, THEY BELONG IN THE BACK SEAT*.

*DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN OR EVEN ADULTS TO PLAY ABOUT IN A MOVING VEHICLE, THEY MAY JUST FLY OUT OF THE WINDSRCEEN IF YOU HIT THE BRAKES SUDDENLY**
Volvo crash
Though many accidents happen and some may NOT BE OUR FAULT, I think 
1. Do not distract the driver of the vehicle or Motorcycle.
2. When listening to music, let it not be too loud that you are not aware of your surroundings.
3. Always ensure that all your mirrors are intact because we cannot be too careful.(as my father would say there is still a blind spot even with all the mirrors).
4. if you have something to look at in the back seat, SLOW DOWN or PARK before turning around.
5. Even if you are happy dont take your eyes off the road to celebrate with your partner in the car. Park first.
6. If you want have to or absolutely have to receive calls then use a blue tooth ear piece or connect to your sound system in your car.
Massive auto road crash, accident
…………….. I guess we can use our imagination for the rest..

Thank you for reading!!

3 magic words

PLEASE, SORRY AND THANK YOU.

These are words we grew up with, words our parents, teachers and elder ones made us say.

Words that do not take much from us but mean so much, go a long way and stop problems from happening.

Nowadays all we see is everyone is so much of a hurry and no one remembers to say them.

A man hits anothers car on the road, comes down, examines the damage and instead of apologizing first. Just says “how much does it cost ill fix it.” im sure anyone can imagine the outcome of the event.

A man walking on the road, hits a fellow man walking past him.
He takes a second look and continues walking on to the annoyance of the other person. What does SORRY cost?
A Woman slaps her daughter at the slightest provocation after working all day (Makes you Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) and does she does not dim it fit to say THANK YOU for all the work done.

A man sends his child on an errand and doesnt say PLEASE CAN YOU BRING ME A CUP OF WATER.
Simple courtsey goes a long way. (Even if the child is tired) 

I just wonder at times when someone hits me and am in a bad mood and does not say sorry, maybe a little slap would go a long way to remind people of the MAGIC WORDS can CALM a lot of nerves.

I go out of my way to say IM SORRY for the littlest of things. I just hope the words would go back to being used, lots of fights would be prevented.

IT COSTS SO LITTLE TO DO SO MUCH, PLEASE, SORRY and THANK YOU. HOW HARD CAN IT BE?

la famile

F A M I L Y

I ran into a stranger as he passed by,
“Oh excuse me please” was my reply.

He said, “Please excuse me too;
I wasn’t watching for you.”

We were very polite, this stranger and I.
We went on our way and we said goodbye.

But at home a different story is told,
How we treat our loved ones, young and old.

Later that day, cooking the evening meal,
My son stood beside me very still.

When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.
“Move out of the way,” I said with a frown.

He walked away, his little heart broken.
I didn’t realize how harshly I’d spoken.

While I lay awake in bed,
God’s still small voice came to me and said,

“While dealing with a stranger,
common courtesy you use,
but the family you love, you seem to abuse.

Go and look on the kitchen floor,
You’ll find some flowers there by the door.

Those are the flowers he brought for you.
He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.

He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise,
you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes.”

By this time, I felt very small,
And now my tears began to fall.

I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
“Wake up, little one, wake up,” I said.

“Are these the flowers you picked for me?”
He smiled, “I found ’em, out by the tree.

I picked ’em because they’re pretty like you.
I knew you’d like ’em, especially the blue.”

I said, “Son, I’m very sorry for the way I acted today;
I shouldn’t have yelled at you that way.”
He said, “Oh, Mom, that’s okay.
I love you anyway.”

I said, “Son, I love you too,
and I do like the flowers, especially the blue.”

FAMILY
Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company
that we are working for could easily replace us in
a matter of days.
But the family we left behind will feel the loss
for the rest of their lives.

And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more
into work than into our own family,
an unwise investment indeed,
don’t you think?
So what is behind the story?

Do you know what the word FAMILY means?
FAMILY = (F)ATHER (A)ND (M)OTHER (I) (L)OVE (Y)OU
