Blurry images making me blind Still, it beacons hope that once left me behind Finding my soul, declutters my mind.
I’ve missed two Three Line Tales week, I feel sorry about it. And I’d hate myself more if I skip this chance to write something out of this fascinating photo prompt. Looking at it makes me feel a bit dizzy. Yet, I can’t help but tell a brief tale that came rushing through my head. My fingers can’t even keep up with my mind while typing at my keyboard. What a muse!

It is easy to wear a smile when life flows along like a river with crystal clear waters. Cheerfulness comes naturally and positive aura is written all over one’s face. It goes without saying that wearing a frown is as natural as breathing when everything goes dead wrong.
Truth be told, I am not the strong person I pretended to be. With all the crisis we’ve been going through since the beginning of this year, the demands of raising four children alone (physically, I mean. My partner abroad never fail to support us), and the pressure of finding a decent work from home job is making me feel so exhausted. I just want to disappear. However, holding on to my sanity and forcing myself to be someone with iron will is out of the question – God entrusted me with adorable little creatures I cannot just abandon.
Finding some ‘me’ time is not really an issue because I am not the type of housekeeper who’d die finishing all household chores before taking a break. I won’t let time beat me or at least that’s what I thought. Harsh as it is, reality speaks that time can never be tamed. Once it’s gone, we cannot take it back. No wonder, God created memories and dreams.
Today, I would like to express how grateful I am that God allowed me to cherish wonderful memories and to dream about wonderful things. It helps me escape my present reality for a moment and gives me the will to hold on, to see things in a positive perspective, and to hope that the best is yet to come.
Oftentimes, we tend to overlook the things that matters a lot. Fate lends no one, the world mocks at us especially when it sees we’re on the verge of giving up. It makes us ungrateful sometimes or would it be right to say, we’re actually grateful but unable to express it openly because our anxieties overshadows it.

Having a FAMILY I can call my own. I don’t have a normal upbringing with my family. I am being tossed from one relative to another and when I was in college, I need to live on my own in a province without any relatives. It makes life so tough that time – no one to turn to, no one to belong to. That’s why when I met my partner and God blessed us with four children, I couldn’t be more happier.
Being affiliated with MCGI (Members Church of God International). Being a Christian is the most wonderful gift I received from God Almighty. It made me realized my life’s purpose and no matter how difficult the path may be, I am confident that with God’s help and mercy, I can live the life that’s meant for me.
Blessings in disguise. Family life is quite tough. Before we reach our present status where we could now buy what we need as well as what we want, we have to go through too much difficulties during our first three years of building our family. There were even times that we barely eat a decent meal in a day. Our relatives would mock us and talk poorly about us in our face. Thank God, my partner is a strong-willed person. While I drown myself in tears, he did everything he can to find a regular job and support me emotionally and financially to pull myself up and land a career in a call center industry.
Forgive me, Sonali I just can’t help but include you. Here’s hoping you’d bear in mind how much I appreciate your wonderful blog, your comments in my posts, and everything about your friendship. Anyhow, there’s no need to participate if your time won’t allow it but I would be delighted if you would. Once again, thank you!
He’s long gone yet his smell still lingers I still feel his touch in my dreams His fading footsteps as he walk away I can’t open my mouth to beg him to stay I cried a river that very day Can’t stand looking at the doorway My life fell apart yet he’s etched in my heart Is this love more than lust? The burning desire in our eyes Our touch, it’s more hot than fire Seventh heaven in an instant Am I meant to love him from a distance? He’s taken, I can’t stand a chance…
There are moments when we’re ‘spacing out’ or having a mental block. The world seem to stop revolving, the time standing still.
I know all of us experienced this thing not only once. Maybe that is our mind’s response once it reaches its limit. It seems that it automatically shuts itself off once it’s been used up already? If this is the case, why are there still people who lost their sanity? Is it because their will is weak? Or is it because they choose to lose their mind? Ah! even these questions doesn’t make any sense to me but somehow gives me something to ponder about. No wonder, it is hard to be an understanding person.
I just stumbled upon this quote and I can’t help but share it while smiling at myself at the same time in our 40th Weekly Quotes To Ponder feature. This is really a spot on. Do you agree with this quote? I would be delighted to read your comments.
And before I conclude this post, let me leave you another quote from David C. Pack. This is one hell of a statement I just can’t ignore:
“Most people live their entire lives without a clue as to why they are here. They drift aimlessly, unconcerned about the answers to life’s greatest questions-why life and why death? Others enjoy debating the meaning of life, but never arrive at the correct answers. Many conclude that mankind is little more than a product of evolution-blind, dumb luck!”
Then an answer from the Word of God – The Bible:
That’s what I got after ‘spacing out’. More insights to what life’s all about. Thank God for all the wisdom and for His saving grace. I now know what my life’s purpose and I’m following it.
