I’ll keep it short. After working 7 days a week for the last couple of months. I so needed a break. I’ll use this summer break given to teachers like me to relax, to have a little fun and break away from mundane life. Hence, I’ll be out from here from August 1st to the 12th. Till then. Have a wonderful vacation. Hope everyone enjoys their summer season!
A few days ago, I came home from a long days work. All sweaty and sticky due to extremely hot day, well what can I say it’s indeed summer and downright exhausted from teaching 10 hours straight, one class after another, from kindergarten to primary, then middle school to high school and the last class with the graduates and professionals. To simply describe it, I was physically dead. But then I thought, well I haven’t opened my blog for couple of days now so I gave it a few minutes.
And there before my eyes, 3 awards in 1 remarkably written Sauce for the Goose by a brilliant writer of fairy tales, a stunning & kind-hearted woman, an amazing blogger and lovely person Ms. Brenda Davis Harsham or bhd63 for some of us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. These awards are deeply valued.

As the Dalai Lama once said:
“I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace.”
I’d like to give thanks and honor to an excellent writer and blogger bhd63 for her highly appreciated nominations for me for 3 awards in a Delectable Sauce for the Goose! Once again, my heartfelt thanks to you 🙂
I’m feeling a bit saucy today. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Don’t be a goose, take a gander at this delectable sauce — composed of delicate hints of the Versatile Blogger Award, a dash of the Loyal Reader and a smattering of Team Membership.
Heartfelt thanks to Belsbror and SimonOworkman, who both separately awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award. Belsbror has great stories, very moving and descriptive. I like his analogy of a blog being like a tree, you should check him out. SimonOworkman has a very engaging and lyrical writing style. I like his caterpillar poem very much.
A double dose of thanks to Jessica Hagan for the piquant Loyal Reader and Wonderful Team Membership Awards. She has inspiring photographs of flowers, butterflies, bees and cats. My appreciation of nature grows every day with the privilege of seeing it through her eyes.

Beauty, truth, friendship, love, creation – these are the great values of life. We can’t prove them, or explain them, yet they are the most stable things in our lives.
