Poems by me

My Faith

Out in the river I could see

Golden light shimmering with glea,

I held my breath and gazed

With this beauty I was amazed.

Nature is so perfect, so pure

It is my harmony, my silence, my cure

And if you listen carefully,

That silence is so godly.

The flawless light led me through

Preparing me to what is True!

Suddenly, it carried me in midair,

Making me aware

And opening my eyes,

Just to make me observe and realise,

That things change, and people leave

What remains is what you believe;

Faith, my ultimate weapon,

Is my guard, my armor, where I could summon;

Hope,

That secures me like a rope.

Strength and Power,

To face misfortunes of the hour.

Comfort and Peace,

Where my trust continues to increase.

Yet holding evenly to Faith is dense and hard on my soul,

As if I’m carrying hot burning charcoal.

As I am human after all,

And many are the times when I do fall.

Yes, I am far from perfect or supreme

I do have my sins, my guilt and misdeeds!

I sometimes feel weak and broken in two,

I get shattered not knowing what to do.

Sometimes I am hopeless and forlorn.

Poisonous anger pricking inside me like thorn…

Other times I feel empty and bare

Leaving me shiver with despair.

Oh that ego and its own bitter self

It just takes me away from the real Wealth…

But then I remember that perfect Light,

So I pull myself up tight.

Dwelling in that Faith of mine

Making it again my shrine.

It is then that I regain my serenity

And feel the One and His joyful unity!

I do pray that I honestly and deliberately…

deserve that ultimate Tranquility.

My 3rd Blogiversary

IMG_8420_

Hello guys,

Three years ago, I launched thehelicoptermommy since I wanted to share my experience as a mom of five through a real virtual world that can reach moms across the continents.

Moms who come from different places, diverse backgrounds with various beliefs and several principles. Moms who are employed and moms who are not. Whatever and wherever we come from, we are after all moms, and that is what unites us!

Yes we are simply moms who are doing our best and trying to enjoy motherhood with all the bitter sweet challenges it brings along.

We all have our own daily struggles and hassles. We all deal with such conflicts in the best way we think is correct. We make mistakes and we learn, and then a new battle arises. Yet, on the baseline, we all share the same foundations. In fact, we are all riding the same boat.

Throughout those few years not much has changed, but thanks to wonderful people like you a lot has been acquired:

• I love the fact that through blogging I have met inspiring super mamas who have left a special mark in my heart. From the inspiring moms whom I worked with, to those whom I met virtually, I have learned a lot from them and made some new good friends too.

• I can’t be more happier to be able to exercise my passion and hobby as an aspiring writer, especially because it inspires other moms in maintaining a positive attitude. Moreover, writing those words which come tumbling down on me, helps me maintain my sanity as I juggle through my busy life.

• It is always a great pleasure to know from you my dear followers and readers how much you enjoy my posts and find them beneficial. That is the best reward I can get! At the same time, going over my words again calms me down and helps me overcome certain challenges I face as a parent.

• With the blogging experience I have gained more patience and an awareness of how people and things function. Things do not come the easy way, and one needs to work hard to attain the successes one seeks.

Today, thehelicoptermommy celebrates its 3rd anniversary, and I am looking forward to the years ahead of me.

For this year, we will continue to empower moms throughout their journeys by holding as many educational and intellectual events related to parenting as possible. Please, let me know of any specific topics you would like me to address, so we can tackle it in the coming year.

Finally, I do hope that you will continue to enjoy my platform as without you, all of this would not have been accomplished .

With love,

Rania – thehelicoptermommy

PS: Thank you Atelier Blanc for hosting me and providing me with your charming venue.

And what other place to be when I got to indulge myself with their rich chocolate in celebration to my three beautiful years of blogging?
