All I am I owe to my mother

All I am I owe to my mother ( Poem)

I read my first book,
got my first caning from mum.
But I owed her most!

All I am today
with her love and discipline,
owed in love, in strength
.

For some, father is the significant figure that forms one’s character and guides one’s life. For some, mother is the hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world!

Thoughtful Thursday

As I read and type 
Thinking deliberately today 
Have I forgotten
 to reciprocate some 
who has visited my sites? 
Have I forgotten 
to reply to comment? 
Have I commented enough? 
For it takes a while  and
to think and respond! 

So I ponder
Maybe I should do
a light 'touch and go.'
and an easy 'hi'!
As most do,
Click a 'like'!
That's thinking on 
a Thoughtful Thursday.

  1. Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less. – C. S. Lewis.
  2. If there were one word that could act as a standard of conduct for one’s entire life, perhaps it would be ‘thoughtfulness. – Confucius
