For the privilege of having you
For putting smiles on our faces
For giving us reason  to celebrate
For making our homes lively
We say thank you

For coloring our walls
For reorganising our furnitures
For putting your toys in every part of our homes
For making us look for the remotes
We are grateful

For misplacing a pair of your slippers
Your sandals
Your canvas
Your shoes
Especially your socks when it's fast needed
We say thank you

For bringing home those serious homeworks
For doing them
And for the times you forgot to do them
For making us buy pen, pencil and eraser on regular basis
You are still our best

For breaking our dishes
For emptying the cutlery basket
For forgetting your water bottles
Also your food flasks
Even your sweaters at school
We still love you

For eating your food
And picking on some
For eating your fruits and veggies (even when you didn't want to)
For wanting snacks over food
And canned drink over water
You are our very best

For giving us reasons to hail
For making us cheer
For making us run
For making us jump
For making us scream
For making us laugh
For making us cry
We are greatful

For making us proud
For the medals
For the trophies
For the  awards
For the plaques
We cherish you

For insisting we fulfil our promises
For making us shop even when we do not feel like it
For making us play
For making us enjoy watching cartoon...
We love you

For doing the dishes
For cleaning the house
For making the meals
For being helpful around us
It's kisses from us

For making wise decisions
For being real
For speaking out
For being unique
We cherish you

For telling us the truth
For being understanding
For being kind
For being accommodating
For being respectful
For being considerate
For forgiving
For being obedient
You make our world

For loving God
For loving us
For loving your siblings
We love you more

Thank you for making parenting an experience and adventure
Happy Children's Day

In the morning when I wake, I will lift my voice in praise, To the glory of his name, For the things He's done for me ye ye…


I struggled for too long Being who I wasn’t Fitting  my circle into other people's 
perfect squares -- into all their
expectations for me Their perception was all that mattered What they will see and say Their standard for success and achievement
I showed up acting who I wasn’t Like a dancing monkey under obligations to perform magic To gain their recognition and affirmations for being who I wasn’t Against being Me
I broke the chains and gained freedom the day I stopped looking at myself through other people’s lenses because I discovered people wore lenses tinted and shaded to suit them not Me

Housed in a container Moved in it Identified by its aesthetics But sometimes lost in it Who exactly am I the container or the content
Sometimes I try so hard to figure exactly what it is about this combo Sometimes complicating other times compelling sometimes conflicting other times cooperating
Influenced by the countless conversations with  the inner and the  outer the seen and the unseen the known and the unknown Then I discover It goes beyond this container there is something about content
As adorned as this container maybe embellished with so much beauty the content remains the substance that give it credibility Beyond the container that interacts is the content that keeps the flow is the content that leaves  memorable impacts
