I was dog tired, eyes heavy and pressed for time. But it was worth the drive and the nap and being late for everything that day. You are worth the risks and you are worth the wait…

I Need A Hug
I was having a particularly difficult day and I bumped into one of my students who had decided that I was her favourite teacher and had been calling me bestie for years -eventually, I gave into the affection.
“Bestie, I need a hug”, I blurted out without thinking. She looked up at me, eyes filling with tears, “I need a hug too!” I pulled her into an embrace, forgetting my own problems for a moment. Her cousin had passed away the night before and she was sad. We both stood in that embrace, both in need of the comfort. My spirit was lifted that day and I hope that hers was too.
In our time of need, we need each other and we should never back away from an opportunity to comfort others. Therein lies our own comfort too.
Thank you for popping in! Have a beautiful week filled with nothing but good things! See you on Wednesday😘
I’m back! So I took part in this campaign over at Twitterville! Attach a picture of your afro with a poem of encouragement. Check out the hashtag to see what other women are saying!
My fro does as it pleases.
Stretches out, shrinks back.
And so I do the same.
The world will adjust.
You’re that thing I must procrastinate
Put you in the backburner and focus on something else.
Focus on positive vibrations
Trust the process
And soon, my Universe will bring me what’s mine.
Endless sizzling hot days. Sun, swimsuits, carefree, every day yours to do with as you please.
Family, friends, catch up time with all your people: a reminder of where you belong.
Gifts exchanged; I’m special to you and you to me. Thank you for being in my life and letting me into yours.
I love the African festive season ☺
Most English teachers will tell you how difficult it is to read for pleasure. Literature is work, something we read to find deeper meaning and even simpler ways to convey that which we encounter.
How refreshing it is to find a novel that engrosses you; a truly engaging, beautiful and authentically South African story. Every page was worth the read and it was bittersweet to put it down at the end.
No one knows how to lift my spirits better than me.Just put me behind the wheel and give me an adventure to embark on.
No one knows how to make my heart flutter better than me. Play me something beautiful, progressions with minors and husky voices and words that sing what I feel.
No one takes care of me better than me. Give me my matchbox flat, flavours to mix in a pot that nourish my belly and my soul.
No one calms me better than me. Make the room quiet and leave me to my own devices.
No one knows me better than me and no one loves me better than me because I’m all I’ve got…
“I’ll save it for later; when the mood is right and the moment is perfect,” she mused.
The thing about the perfect moment though, it is aluding. It is always just out of reach. The mood, not quite right enough, the moment, not quite perfect enough.
Sometimes, you will find, that you left that perfect mood and perfect moment behind as you put it off for later.
