The speed of time…


We draw to the close of May so fast that I’m left gasping to catch my breath.

Yesterday  was just December, and now we are done with the 1st quarter of the year, with some water gone under the bridge and quite some notable celebrities have crossed over to the other side.

Today, my thoughts have been on a reminiscent drift. It’s three years today that my dad passed on and I find myself replaying a lot of scenes of the past in my mind. Not in a bad way but in a bitter-sweet way.

I find myself filled with peace.  Peace for having known him as my father.

I’ve not achieved all that I set out for myself for this quarter. I’ve been slow, but I’m thankful for the much that I’ve done.

I’m grateful for the Grace and Favour received each day, to wake and see the rising Sun and pursue my dreams. To drink my warm cup of beverage and hope for tomorrow. I’m grateful.

There’s always something to be grateful for. You canYou can join Colline’s  or Maria Jansson gratitude challenge platforms.

P.S. You are invited to our monthly blog party this weekend. It’s fun and you get to meet fantastic folks 🙂

Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

Out of the silent breath

When his face is sought with such fervent endeavour

huge burdens become less of a pressure

for he adorns us with unquantified favour

which takes us up to a higher measure.

  1. I think there is still so much to be grateful for Jacqui. There are still many things that I would have loved to have achieved by now but haven’t yet! I will get there though,and in the meantime be happy with how far I have already come 🙂

  2. I have to remind myself to slow down. Just because time passes by fast doesnt mean that we should. Its been a year next month since my father-in-law passed. It feels like it was only last week. August will be a year since my dad passed. It feels like yesterday. Yes, it is still that raw and, just hurts. I get busy with life and I really do need to slow down and just reflect on all the good times dad and I shared.

  3. Death anniversaries are always hard. I lost my mom on Sept. 11 in 2006 then my brother was murdered a few months later just a few days before Christmas. *hugs*
