The cold hard cement can teach you great lessons

November 13, 2016 Emma M 0

Sometimes in life one does not realize how bad things are becoming until you fall flat down with your face on the ground. Being young and na├»ve doesn’t help either when you are heading for dark dangerous areas. You see, I grew up under the guidance of a praying mother. She would pray about and for a lot of things; in my young state I couldn’t understand the devotion to […]

Peanut butter carrot muffins

November 6, 2016 Emma M 1

I love baked goodies and since I have been trying to follow a healthier lifestyle, I took it upon myself to experiment with recipes that might be slightly healthier than most store bought baked goods. This is my latest version of healthier muffins. This recipe made 21 muffins for me. Ingredients: 3 eggs 3 spoons of butter 1/2 cup of olive oil 1 1/2 cups of milk 3/4 cup of […]

Cold rainy days are for warm outings

September 10, 2016 Emma M 0

My greatest love when it’s cold. This time of the year is great in Pietermaritzburg, it is cool and the flowers and trees are beautiful. All looks so great but God knows I hate the unpredictable London-like weather. Despite heating up the room and a cup of soup, still feels like something is missing. I think it’s the memories of cold days when I was younger that make me feel […]

All this thinking actually made his head hurt and somehow reached at the core of his heart; that’s when he decided that it was time repent and […]

The woman you always thought you could be

August 9, 2016 Emma M 0

Remember when you were young you always imagined yourself as various women. You were the doctor who took care of all the sick patients despite their ailments, you cured everything. You were a perfect musician, the whole package, you sang and danced and even had that diva attitude and style to go with it. You were a pharmacist, made all different kinds of healing and life prolonging concoctions, though sometimes […]

Tweety bird

  Oh tweety bird, Why are you so full of fear? Why do you not do what you long for? You were born for this, why do you fear it? Your wings may be small but they will carry you, They will carry you to the place you so desperately long to be, They may look weak but they were designed for this, Do not fear, you were born for […]
