Story Time

We all have unique gifts, we are all valued and needed.

 

The sad earthworm.

 

Once upon a time there was an earthworm.

Often he was just lying there, feeling sad to be only an earthworm.

Why can’t he be a bird or a fish or a human being.

Each being seems to be able to do something special, each being seems to be worth more than just a simple earthworm.

One day a girl came by. She saw the worm and picked him up. He felt worried and thought that was the end of his life.

Instead the girl put him into a jam jar. There was soil and some leaves, actually it was quite comfortable even though a bit small.

The next day the girl took the worm to school. She was asked to stand in front of class to deliver an essay.

With astonishment the earthworm heard the girl talk about earthworms.

How earthworms live, how important they are and that they do something unique.

To make fertile soil out of leaves and dirt.

They are the earthworms which make make sure that constantly new things can grow in fertile soil.

And when the girl released the worm later that evening back into the garden, he was the happiest worm in the world.

… a day for gratitude….

 

Another year comes to an end.

Reflecting on the past year.

We have dealt with ups and downs,

family or work related,

maybe illness, loss and sadness.

We are growing stronger every year dealing with emotions

and difficult situations.

 

I wanted to express my gratitude to all of you

my wonderful friends around the globe.

You helped me cope with many things,

you made me happy,

you were there for me.

My heartfelt thank you.

I am so grateful for you being here.

I send you so much love and many hugs.

Thank you for being with me on my journey!

… a day for a dream journey…

I sit down comfortably,

close my eyes and

go on a journey in my mind.

Go anywhere you like,

somewhere where you have been

or somewhere you like to go, imagine how it could be.

Let your imagination go.

Enjoy the sights, smells, colours and sounds.

When you open your eyes,

you feel happy and relaxed.

 

 

An Award

Standard

In August I have been nominated  for an Award and I had it in my drafts since.

I just realised that and I am very grateful to Binky  who gave the award to me.

Thank you so much and sorry it took so long.

I have known Binky for years

and as Binky,

I saw bloggers come and go in the nearly 6 years I am blogging.

Some bloggers stopped blogging,

some went to heaven,

and also I met some bloggers personally.

It is wonderful to meet Bloggers on line and face to face.

You get connected and become friends.

There is a wonderful community out in the blogging world and

I can only express my sincere thanks to everyone of my friends, readers and commenters.

You make me happy.

Being British

Standard

Wednesday, 24th May was a special day for me.

After living in London, UK for 30 years,

I have finally become a British citizen.

On Wednesday

I attended the official ceremony in the Town Hall

and my British Citizenship started from this day.

 

I am very proud to be British as well as German now.

 

Come and enjoy a very British cup of tea with me!
