I’m blogging again! :)


After a long time, I’m blogging again.
Many things happened untill now.

I miscarried one baby and got pregnant again, moved two times.
And here I am, fresh and new, three kids mommy – one is a toddler, the other one is in heaven, and the third one inside my belly.
I am hoping you will like my posts again.

A matter of perspective, an inspirational story

A father of a wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the intention of showing him how poor people live so his son would be grateful for the luxurious life he had been provided. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return home, the father asked his son, “How was the trip?” “It was great, dad.” “Did you see how poor people live?” the father asked. “Oh, yeah,” said the son. “Well, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?” asked the father.

The son answered: “We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden, but they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden, but they have countless stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard, but they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on, but they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, but they have friends to protect them.”

The boy’s father was speechless. Then his son added, “Thanks, dad, for helping me to see how blessed others are so that I can better appreciate what few blessings we truly enjoy.”
