Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 119

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Here is a truly apt quote Spidey has found, thinking back to the happenings of the past week, here in the UK.

I know it may seem a very idealistic way to think, but surely we need to have this positivity and not lose hope that humanity has failed…

Watching a clip from the news earlier, it cemented some of my thoughts regarding the whole terrorist thing.

Earlier this week there was a vigil in Manchester for the victims of this atrocious attack. A Doctor, who is Muslim, was being interviewed. Her husband is a specialist surgeon, and upon hearing about the blast, he forgot everything and rushed to the hospital to help. After 12 hours helping out, he came back exhausted but pleased he could help.

Later in the day they received phone calls from fellow Muslim friends saying that they wanted to attend the vigil but were scared to go as they felt their headscarves would make them targets.

Because people hear about ISIS and the Islamic Extremist groups that have been responsible for so many recent attacks, there is a vast amount of folk who tar all Muslims with the same brush.

But this is so not the case! The majority of Muslim people I know condemn all these attacks and hold no belief even slightly similar to the thoughts of these monsters.

Yet a mosque was attacked that day too.

Does this not make the revenge attackers just as bad?

We need to stay focused, stay positive, and realise that there is a small amount of folk out to ruin the lives of many, not a whole race, or religious persuasion.

On this note, I say have a wonderful Sunday Peeps, stay safe!

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 118

“Health is a state of body. Wellness is a state of being.” – J Stanford

Spidey is trying to gee me up this weekend as I am suffering from a horrendous sore throat at the moment. Who knows who gave it to me… One of the lovely children at school? Someone at home?

I don’t know that, but what I do know is that it hurts! It’s been a while since I had a sore throat, and I have been wallowing in my own misery today,  but I really need to buck up. I am getting rest, and relaxation, so I will get better. Positivity helps wellness I believe, just like paracetamol is great for health!

But we found this quote too, that raised a titter!

 

“I’d hate to be a giraffe with a sore throat!” – Mitch Hedberg

That’s me right now. Thanking God I am not a long necked animal!

So, I hope you all have a healthier weekend than me Peeps!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 117 – Mums…

“A mother understands what a child does not say.” Proverb

Seeing as it’s Mother’s Day in many other parts of the world, including the US of A where Spidey hails from, we thought why not celebrate it again!

I think there aren’t enough days in the year to truly celebrate what a mother is to us all.

The proverb above couldn’t ring more true for me anyway.

No matter where I am, what I am doing or how old I am, my mum always knows.

Whether I am feeling high as a kite, but haven’t said anything, or so low that I feel the ground will just rise above me, she knows.

It’s that mother’s intuition.

And she wont go rushing in hammer and tongs, asking me “What’s up? Why? Who? What? When?”

She just has that knack of saying the right thing to either allow me to open up, or to soothe my feelings.

She knows there are things I can’t tell her sometimes, or that I won’t, yet she still won’t push for information.

No interrogation.

Just that silent support.

She’s there for me. She always is.

And just as she can read my silence, I can feel her silent support.

Thank you Mum! ❤

Happy Mother’s Day!

Enjoy your Sunday Peeps! If you’re a mum, I hope you get appreciated for all you do! If your mum is still with you , make sure you show her how much she is loved. If your mum is being your silent support from above, look up, and thank her for still caring, even though she isn’t here.

For mums everywhere 🙂

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” ― Jim Valvano

Last week I was nervous as anything, with that dang observation hanging over my head.

Deep down I knew I should be ok, but there was still an element of self doubt.

I guess that fear is not a bad thing. It means that you really care about whatever is going to happen.

But one thing I had behind me, was the support of my parents, husband and family.

My Pops and Mum have always been there, right behind me, believing in me from the off.

Once I had received my feedback and let everyone know how I got on, I got this message from Pops.

Yes… emoji use runs high in my whole family!

 

It touched me that no matter what, his faith in me is unerring.

And to have the backing of all these people who love me and believe in me, is a blessing indeed.

If I have one wish for you all Peeps, it would be that you also have someone who believes in you, behind you all the way.

Happy Sunday Peeps!

Short and sweet this week, as I dedicate this Spidey’s Serene Sunday to my parents who celebrate their 45th Anniversary today!

Happy Anniversary Pops and Mum! ❤
