Differences (originally posted 19.09.2017)

Not because we can’t see value, worth or ‘substance’ in someone else doesn’t mean it isn’t there. 

Some use differences to separate and divide.  While others choose to celebrate and embrace them.

Sure our differences make us different but that’s not a negative thing?  These differences create opportunities for us to grow, learn and develop.

Being different isn’t the problem.  Being closed-minded about it is.

For our eyes can only see what’s on the surface.  It’s up to us to dig deeper.

Let’s be proud of who we are and never let anyone make us feel inferior or unworthy.

Motherhood

Motherhood is a job that offers no pay

We as mothers are lucky to even get an off day

It’s a job that just keeps on taking

Being strong women we keep on giving

…………………………………………………….

Blessed with this task we must hold fast

As we keep delivering down to our last

God must think highly of us

To demand so much of us

……………………………………………………

We’ve been entrusted with great responsibility

So there’s no deniability

Our roles in our children’s lives are significant

If done well, they can be magnificent

Society and the world at large are counting on us

So let’s make no mistake, the future is at stake.

Happy Earth Day!

The earth is our home

Her abuse we should  not condone

She provides us with food, clothing and shelter

All we have to do is protect her

Replenishing where we can

Always giving a helping hand

She keeps giving and we keep taking

Sometimes forgetting that she requires up-keeping

Some of us recklessly dump our waste

With no regard for the consequences 

Will our children or grandchildren be able to mend the fences?

Let’s not allow selfishness to deprive us all

If not now, then when? 

It’s not too late my friend!

If you do your part and I do mine

Hopefully in the end she’ll be fine.

Celebrating the earth and doing things to protect her should be a way of life.  We all have a part to play, it all adds up in the end.     Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
