Don’t Let Memories Die


Memories are our own history and is important to ourselves and our family to record as much as we can.

I do wish I had done this, especially with regards to my own parents, for they are no longer with us and these memories are now lost for ever.

Author -Carole Parkes

As an avid family historian, I’m a great believer in memoirs and autobiographies. If your aged family members are capable, encourage them to give you a written piece on  their life experiences. If that would be too difficult, encourage them to talk about their lives — the times they laughed until their sides ached, or when sadness overtook them, in fact, to tell you about everything, including what they remember about great uncle Fred.

I know, it’s not always easy in our busy lives to find time to sit and talk but, just remember, those frail relatives will probably not be around when you finally do have the time to spend with them. I’ve lost count of the times I’ve heard those researching their family trees say they wished they’d asked the questions. Please don’t be one of them. We often only develop an interest in our roots as we…

Donald Trump is my ex-husband [Updated]


When we met, he smiled, complimented my looks, took me to fine restaurants, took me dancing. He showed me off, flashing me on his arm like expensive cufflinks. He swept me off my feet, showered me with attention, overwhelmed me with the intensity of his desire for me. He told me how great and accomplished he was and how lucky I was to have him, marveled at the confluence of events in the universe that had brought us together. One month after the day we met he told me he loved me, and one month after that he proposed. Not so much proposed as began talking about how we would be married some day, as though it were the most natural assumption in the world, the inevitable result of our miraculous joining. He said that having a ceremony was almost redundant because we were already married in God’s eyes, yet it was urgent that we marry as soon as possible because the only way we could be together physically was within the sanctity of marriage, which was the only way he wanted his

Society Vs Girls


A very powerful post. Why should gender relate to your destiny for are we not all equal. However, various Societies and cultures would appear to feel that some are more equal than others.

Should this be so, then should not females be more equal than males, for if it was not for females then the human race would not exist.

But some males feel they are the dominates in the species, but that could be due to only to evolution where the males were deemed to be the hunter gatherer, but in fact it is by working together male and female as a team that the human races has continued to exist.

However, this assumed ‘norm’ of males with females should not be deemed the only basis of relationship.

For each human is an individual where each one is different and this can and does extend to relationships, as some wish to be males to males and females to females.

We should, therefore respect each other and allow each to form their own relationships, where each within the relationship should feel they are equals.

Surely this would ensure more equality and understanding and would be better for living co-existence throughout the whole world.

Scene 1 : please Dr. Can you diagnose and tell us the gender of the my to be born kid.”

If it’s a girl I want it to get aborted.

The unborn cried, thinking “is this womb also not safe for me? “


Scene 2:(a loud sound of crying came out of ward)

“Dr. Who has arrived? ” asked the lady. ” congratulations!! An angel has arrived, you have became a grandma, ” replied the doctor.

” oh god! It was better she could have died when she gave birth. “

And there were two individuals crying at the same time one for her life and other for why is she alive.

Scene 3: “

it’s not necessary for you to study, you don’t have to end up doing job, it’s sufficient you have studied for writing letters, go and prepare tea for your brother…

Without Obamacare we could have been saying goodbye


I woke up one morning thinking of her and cried. I knew something was wrong. Still too stubborn to call her, I called my auntie and learned that my mother was scheduled for a biopsy because of a sizable lump in her breast. Soul connected.

I ran home to my mama. I booked a one-way flight to New Orleans, told my job that I wouldn’t be back until I knew she was ok and that they could do whatever they needed to in response. Thankfully, my board picked up the slack until I could return.

By the time my mama was diagnosed with breast cancer, I could see the lump in her breast without touching it. Like a lot of poor people, she waited until she was in significant pain before seeing a doctor. She’d never had stable health insurance before Obamacare so she always worried too much about cost.

Thanks to Obamacare she was able to stop worrying about the cost of her healthcare and focus on healing her body.

And she and I connected like never before. I stood by her side through numerous appointments. I used all the middle class lessons I’d learned since leaving home and advocated on her behalf for better care, shorter waits, more detailed information. I stood next to her every moment I could, and when doctors insisted that I needed t

When indeed shall we learn that we are all related one to the other, thar we are all members of one body?…..Helen Keller


A great and true thought and one that we should all aspire to.

TotallyInspiredMind.com

Helen Keller Says: “When indeed shall we learn that we are all related one to the other, that we are all members of one body? Until the spirit of love for our fellow people, regardless of race, color, or creed, shall fill the world, making real in our lives and our deeds the actuality of human brother- and sisterhood, until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other’s welfare, social justice can never be attained.”

By calling family members carers, we risk turning love and responsibility into a transaction, without adequately supporting or rewarding those who do it
