I think of…

A garden of flowers
An orchard of fruit trees
A room filled with laughter
A bright, sunny day
An embrace of love and warmth
Whispers of endearments
A heart full of compassion
The face of kindness
An aura of beauty
The brilliance of your persona
The radiance of your soul
Your dazzling smile
Your kindly eyes
Your humble gait
Your caring nature
Your gentleness
Your guidance
Your teaching
Your mentoring
Your humility
Your dignity
Your exemplary stature
And…
You!

Till we meet again, sweet Brother

❤️ Darling Brother M.K.A ❤️

My beloved baby brother suddenly passed,
My heart weeps, my mind’s awry, no words that I can say..
Can ever take the pain away, O God..
Grant me peace, calm my restless soul.
….
My lashes rest upon my cheeks, my palms are raised and my prayers begin.
….
Aye, the tempest has lulled a bit, the cries and tears have lessened
Let Your blessed balm comfort me, O Lord …
As I embrace the beauty and goodness
Of my sweet brother’s soul.
Loved by all, his grace, his humility and deep compassion
Are now celebrated on earth by everyone.
Rest in peace, dear heart, till we meet again
Perhaps today, tomorrow … for only He knows.

 

Dear God, we thank You for the beautiful angel You gave to us, to be a part of our family. Oh, how we loved, respected and appreciated him – never forgetting to tell him how proud we were of him – and he, my baby brother, always acknowledged our love for him….for he knew we loved him to bits!

We bow to Your Will, O Lord, and in great humility voice our deep gratitude for the oh-so precious, most cherished fifty-three years we enjoyed with MKA. Rest in eternal peace! Ameen Amen.

Grateful I am for the blessings! Life is packed with them, look around you. Certainly, His grace surrounds us. Pause. Reflect. Observe.

I am grateful for the sunshine in my garden. The flowers are blooming and prove His wondrous ways by which He blesses us.

This flower is just one of my many, many blessings. Note its beauty, its magnificence and its shape.

Blessings come in different ways. Think about it. Ponder a while. Become aware. And be thankful.

I am grateful for even the ups and downs for they have made me the person I am. The lows have strengthened my faith and made me a better person. The highs have made me humble and I bow in gratitude to the Almighty.

Yes, I am grateful. Grateful for…

my parents

my sister

my brother

my aunts

my uncles

my nephews

my nieces

my cousins

my friends

and last but not least, I am so, so very grateful for my children…my darling daughter and my darling son. May God forever bless you and keep you safe.

I am indeed blessed!

Thank You, God.

Big fish in a small pond

Standard

It all began with one small fish…a goldfish to be exact. It was love at first sight and my dear brother was smitten with the big bonny, beady eyes and the golden, flowing, spectacular robe of…err, let’s call her Goldilocks. And thus, began the love affair.

Goldilocks (the Queen, if you please) was put into a large aquarium—artistically designed, along with all the accompanying paraphernalia (befitting Her Majesty, oh gawdie), such as rocks, pebbles, gravel, shells, ferns, etc—and proudly placed in our home. La-di-da.

My besotted sibling devoted meticulous care to Goldie (as he oh-so lovingly called her), feeding her at regular times, and ensuring that the filter was in proper working order.
