The Little things


Never get tired of doing the little things for others. Sometimes those little things occupy the biggest parts of their hearts.

No matter how bad it hurts or how bad you feel, it’s time to stop thinking about that person who played with your feelings, who took your love for granted, who never appreciated your care, who wasn’t contented with what you could give him or her. You can’t stay at that hurtful place anymore. You can’t keep shedding tears over someone who doesn’t deserve the love you gave. You can’t keep feeling sorry for yourself and thinking if only you did more. You can’t make them want the relationship because if they wanted they wouldn’t have let go of you.

You deserve better now. You deserve someone who appreciates you and who won’t play with your delicate heart.. Just like a cut on your hand will take time to heal, your broken heart needs time to heal as well. That’s not the end of your life. You will get over that pain you’re having right now and one day you’ll be happy again.

You can close your eyes to the things you don't want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel. -Johnny Depp.

Happiness is when you realise that your children have turned out to be good people.

Keep your heart free from hate and your mind free from worry. Give much and expect little from others. Live simply and fill your life with love. Treat others how you expect to be treated. Treasure your family and friends. This is the key to happiness.

Being beautiful is more than how many people you can get to look at you, or what you wear. It's also about what you live for, what defines you, the goodness in your heart and all the little things that make you special. It's those little quirks that make you, you. It's about going against the flow and having the confidence to live life the way YOU want to live it. Now, those are beautiful things.

Never Underestimate The Power Of Prayer


A poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery store. She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries. She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food.

The grocer scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store.
Visualizing the family needs, she said: "Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can.". The Grocer told her he could not give her credit, as she did not have a charge account at his store.

Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the conversation between the two. The customer walked forward and told the grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her family.

The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, "Do you have a grocery list?". The lady replied, "Yes sir"

"O.K." he said, "put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries."

The lady, hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.

The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down.

The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly, "I can't believe it."

The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales.

The scale did not balance so he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more. The grocer stood there in utter disgust.

Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement.

It was not a grocery list; it was a prayer which said: "Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.". The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in stunned silence.

The lady thanked him and left the store. The customer handed a fifty-dollar bill to the grocer and said, "It was worth every penny of it."

It was some time later that the grocer discovered the scales were actually broken; therefore, only God knows how much a prayer weighs....

Never underestimate the power of prayer ~ Have a blessed day!

Ukraine Soldier Blows up a Bridge With Himself in a Heroic Move to Stop Russian Troops From Advancing


Several people are signing up to join defense squads to help the country stop the Russian invasion.

Ukrainian troops and citizens are prepared and determined to battle the Russian army to the end. They pledged on Friday to "give Putin hell from every house" as the Russian army pushed through Kyiv, the country's largest city, reports Daily Mail. One of them was a marine, Vitaly Shakun, who, in a brave move that hindered Russian soldiers, blew himself up along with a bridge in the Kherson district near Crimea. The General Staff of the Armed Forces informed that when Russians advanced and mined the Henichesk bridge in the Kherson district, he was on duty.


 


The battalion concluded that blowing up the bridge was the only option to stop them. Shakun didn't have time to flee. He warned his buddies he was about to detonate, and they heard an explosion a split second later, per the Facebook Post of General Staff. His actions, as well as those of the Ukrainian armed forces, have greatly slowed Russian progress to invade the country. A senior defense official who stayed anonymous told CNN that the Russians are facing more resistance from the country than they initially expected. They said, "I can’t give you an exact geographic location of where they are, but they are not moving on Kyiv as fast as they anticipated they would be able to. [They are] meeting more resistance than they expected."


Former President Petro Poroshenko was among the numerous people organizing territorial defense squadrons on the streets of Kyiv, ready to confront Putin's forces when they appeared. Poroshenko held up his Kalashnikov in an emotional CNN interview, vowing never to give in to Russian President Vladimir Putin or his troops. On Thursday night, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky uploaded a video demonstrating that he was still in Kyiv and is visiting government offices. He said in the video, "We are all here. Our soldiers are here. The citizens are here and we are here. We defend our independence. That's how it'll go. Glory to our defenders, both male and female, glory to Ukraine!"





Posthumous prizes will now be offered to the marine who sacrificed his life. The Facebook post read, "To stop the advance of the tank column, it was decided to blow up the Genichesky road bridge. Shakun, engineer of a separate battalion, volunteered to perform this task. The bridge was mined, but he did not have time to leave. According to the brothers, Vitaliy got in touch and said that he was blowing up the bridge. An explosion was heard immediately. Our brother died." The translation of the post further said, "His heroic deed significantly slowed the advance of the enemy, which allowed the unit to redeploy and organize the defense."

President Zelensky announced to the people last Thursday that everyone who desired a firearm and was willing to stay and fight would receive one. To combat the enemy, citizens are being instructed to use Molotov cocktails. Ukrainian MP Andrii Osandchuk published images of dozens of people signing up to join defense squads around the nation.

What guy really want, but don't have the gut to tell you


“Men are from Mars, women are from Venus”, right? While women mostly discuss their problems, needs and expectations, this is not the case for men.

Also, this is due because they’re more insecure in their life, not always knowing exactly what they want.

So basically, a guy won’t ask for anything because he doesn’t even know that he needs it. But, on the other hand, if you “read his mind” and figure out for some present, surprise or just a small everyday thing, he would appreciate even more, because he will also figure out that “Wow, I really needed that”!

Here are the top five that guys would always appreciate and sincerely love, but’ either don’t know it or don’t have the gut to admit it:

When a girl asks for their advice

Men have an overwhelming need to feel they’ve achieved something that matters. To feel useful. To “make the day count”. This doesn’t only regard to their work.

Adding a part of his mind into his partner’s life is also very important to a man. Whether is advice on clothing, what to eat, work related… what matters is that he feels more connected and relevant to his partner.


On the other hand, men are great at advices because they’re solution-oriented and want to fix things. Also, men are “strict to the point” oriented as well, so getting advice from them would be a really good thing to ask for.


Compliments

Getting a compliment I something every man definitely wants, but will never admit it, because they think that their masculinity will decrease significantly in the eyes of their partner.

Maybe not as equal as women do, but man feel insecure about their looks and how stuff look on them as well. They’re human beings as well!


They work out to look good, they cut their hair and beard even more frequently than a women goes at the hairdresser’s saloon, but they will never come in the open and say that their partner never appreciates the effort they’re doing to look the way they look.

When women explain their needs, but in a way that makes them feel good

If a man loves his woman, he would definitely do anything to make her feel good. Even more, if a man doesn’t think he can make his woman feel happy, he will probably want to stop the relationship.


So if a woman isn’t satisfied with a gift for her birthday, or by how the things in the bedroom are developing, or anything else, instead of keeping silent and feeling repressed, leaving the “elephant in the room”, a woman should find a way to discuss with her man and explain things in a smooth way.

Men’s pride is something which doesn’t cure if it’s hurt. Also, if a woman starts “lecturing” instead of talking, it’s a definit go-go sign for the man, because he feels as a child instead of as a man.

Support

Even though man seem stubborn and would do anything that comes on their mind, they’re also in need of a helping hand and support on their way.

And since they can’t handle failure so well, they definitely need to feel support so they wouldn’t fear of failure like it’s the last thing in Earth. When a woman is proud and supporting, the man feel like doing more and more, but when she’s disappointed – he tends to make the same mistakes out of feeling worthless or angry. That’s really not good for the relationship.

Desiring him

The ultimate driving force of a man – knowing his woman is sexually satisfied from him. Speaking from evolutionary aspect – the male in every species has this characteristic. Though in some species, women fight for their men, and in the world of humans, it’s the opposite way. There is no bigger turn on for man than seeing his woman turned on for him!

This Father Raised a Doctor with Down Syndrome and Proves that Love Makes Everything Possible


We thought our readers might enjoy this story about a family from Syria who proved there’s nothing better than selfless love.


It’s a massive misconception that people with Down syndrome can’t live entire, productive lives.


One misconception about people with Down syndrome is that they can’t have kids. Women with Down can have kids just fine, and men might be able to father a child if they’re lucky. Despite having Down syndrome, Jad Issa wasn’t just a dad; he also raised his child to be a doctor.


When Sader was born, he was treated just like any other kid in a home. Sader says he felt very loved as a child, and his dad would spend time with him wrestling, thumb wrestling, and other games. People around the family also supported them and accepted them.


She doesn’t have a genetic disorder, so it hasn’t affected their relationship. Additionally, Jad has supported his family through thick and thin. During the last 25 years, he worked six days a week at a wheat factory to support his family. Since day one, he has encouraged Sader to succeed!

Jad is on track to become a dentist, one of the best and most lucrative careers in Syria. Jad’s dad, who put him through school, is thrilled. His favorite thing to say is, “My son is a doctor!”.



While talking about his parents’ relationship, Sader told us that they still love each other despite being together for decades, like they just got married. Their needs match perfectly. Walking together is their favorite activity, or just chatting for hours.

Sader gives credit for his father’s success and says he is as proud of him as his dad. When they’re free, the inspiring duo likes to watch movies together.

74 Years Ago, She Was Kicked Out For Loving A Black Man–Today, Their Love Still Lives


The love story of Mary and Jake puts Romeo and Juliet to shame. They met in the 1940s and fell in love. But mixed-race couples were not accepted at the time. It was their love versus the world. However, they never gave up. They got married and got to live to see an age where their relationship was celebrated. Sadly, they have both passed away, with Mary reuniting with Jake in the afterlife in July 2020 [1].

Forbidden Love

The couple met during World War II when Jake was serving in the United Kingdom. He was originally from Trinidad and Mary was living in Britain. In an interview in 2016, Mary explained,

“I met Jake when he came over during the war from Trinidad, as part of the American forces stationed at the Burtonwood base near my home in Lancashire. We were at the same technical college. I was having typing and shorthand lessons and he’d been sent there for training by the Air Force. He was with a group of Black friends and they called my friend and me over to talk. We didn’t even know they spoke English, but Jake and I got chatting. He quoted Shakespeare to me, which I loved.” [2]




A few weeks later, Mary and her friend joined Jake and his group on a picnic. However, a woman biked past them and she was shocked two see the interracial group. She told Mary’s father and he banned her from seeing Jake.

When the war ended in 1945, Jake had to return to Trinidad. They frequently sent each other letters but it didn’t take long for Jake to feel like he couldn’t be apart from her anymore. Within a few years, he was back in Britain, down on one knee, asking Mary to be his wife. “He asked me to marry him, quite out of the blue, when I was only 19,” Mary said. “When I told my father I was going to marry Jake he said, ‘If you marry that man you will never set foot in this house again.’ He was horrified that I could contemplate marrying a Black man.”




 


Rejected By Her Family

“My father threw me out, and I left with only one small suitcase to my name. No family came to our register office wedding in 1948,” Mary added. “The first years of our marriage living in Birmingham were hell—I cried every day, and barely ate. No one would speak to us, we couldn’t find anywhere to live because no one would rent to a Black man, and we had no money.”


Strangers would gawk at them in the street. The stress was terrible, and to make matters worse, Mary had a miscarriage at eight months. “It wasn’t related to the stress I was under but it broke my heart, and we never had any more children,” she said. They already had three children at the time, Raymond, Cindy, and Patty. [2] “But gradually life became easier. I got teaching jobs, ending up as a deputy headteacher. First Jake worked in a factory, then for the Post Office.”

The couple began to make a few friends, but it wasn’t easy. “I used to say to new friends: ‘Look, I have to tell you this before I invite you to my home—my husband is Black,'” Mary said.

When her father passed away, Mary was 30. The two managed to reconnect but he never approved her marriage to Jake. But that didn’t stop them.

Wives, mothers and children bid farewell to their families as they evacuate Ukraine



This past week has been highly traumatizing for the people of Ukraine, all of the families being split up and leaving their homes – fleeing to neighboring safe zones. It’s truly heartwrenching to see so many wives, mothers, children, and the elderly, as they bid farewell to their loved ones who have to stay behind in Ukraine while they have to evacuate.


Homes that once sparked with joy are now empty. Streets that bustled with activity are silent. Happy families who were simply living their lives are forced to split and wave goodbye to each other without even knowing if they’d ever meet again or not – it’s genuinely heartbreaking.

More than 100,000 refugees have fleed Ukraine, and the numbers are just increasing as tensions continue to rise in the country. Fathers, husbands, and sons had to say goodbye to their families as they stayed back in Ukraine because of a decree that stated men aged 18-60 stay in Ukraine and defend their land.


Shabia Mantoo, a spokesperson for The UN Refugee Agency, said:

“We believe that some 100,000 people must have already left their homes and may be displaced inside the country, and several thousand have crossed international borders.”

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, said in a statement:

“UNHCR is working with the authorities, UN and other partners in Ukraine and is ready to provide humanitarian assistance wherever necessary and possible. To that effect, security and access for humanitarian efforts must be guaranteed.”

“UNHCR is also working with governments in neighboring countries, calling on them to keep borders open to those seeking safety and protection. We stand ready to support efforts by all to respond to any situation of forced displacement.”

“Accordingly, we have stepped up our operations and capacity in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.”

“We remain firmly committed to support all affected populations in Ukraine and countries in the region.”


Poland shares a border with Ukraine, and they are welcoming and expecting refugees. Poland’s Interior Minister, Mariusz Kaminski, spoke on the matter:

“There will certainly be a wave of refugees arriving in our country,”

He continued that Poland will take:

“as many as there will be at our borders”

We are at a loss for words at what’s happening in Ukraine, so many devastated families, homes, lives, without any affirmations, and all of their future plans just gone. We hope and pray for the situation in Ukraine to settle, our hearts go out to all of the affected families who are going through so much trauma right now.

Young Man Invites 89-Year-Old Neighbor To Live With Him So She Is Not Alone in Her Last Days


It’s amazing how one small act of kindness can change someone’s life, and the most unlikely pairs can form the strongest of bonds. Such was the case with then 26-year-old Chris Salvatore and his 84-year-old neighbor Norma Cook. When Salvatore moved into his new apartment in West Hollywood, CA back in 2012, he had no clue that the curious elderly woman staring at him from her kitchen window in the complex’s courtyard would become one of his best friends. After a quick greeting through the screened opening, he asked if he could come inside and say hello. Once Cook agreed, the rest was history.

Cook lived alone with her beloved cat, Hermes, who she immediately introduced to Salvatore. And the two quickly bonded over her favorite champagne and neighborhood gossip. Over the course of their almost five-year friendship, they would share many precious memories. From pizza nights to lunches out on the town, birthday parties, holidays, and endless laughs. Over time, they grew to feel more like family as, for Cook, Salvatore became like “the grandson she never had.” And he too considered her a grandmother.

That’s why, when Cook’s health took a turn for the worse at 89, 31-year-old Salvatore did what any good grandson would do and stepped in to assist with her care. She had been battling leukemia for years, but towards the end of 2016, she became grievously ill and had to spend two months in the hospital fighting pneumonia and breathing complications. With her rapidly deteriorating health, the doctors determined that it would no longer be safe for the elderly woman to live on her own without 24-hour care. So, to help cover her medical expenses and the costs of her in-home care, Salvatore started a GoFundMe which raised more than $50,000. However, with no children of her own or any close relatives nearby, Cook's only other option was to go into a facility.


“I just couldn’t do that to someone who is like my own grandmother,” Salvatore said at the time. Instead, he offered to have his ailing neighbor move in with him. Cook was absolutely thrilled by the invitation, and the transition seemed only natural since he would spend most days visiting her apartment anyway. “My apartment was the only place she would have moved. She has strong opinions about where she wants to carry out the rest of her days, and she wants to stay here,” Salvatore explained about the arrangement. “Moving her in…it feels as though it was meant to be all along. It’s really fulfilling to be there for her.”


Once Cook moved in, bringing along her dear Hermes, they quickly developed a routine. Salvatore would cook for her, and the two would spend time together on the couch watching the news, talking, drinking Champagne, and eating peanuts. Though the doctors had told them it would be a miracle if Cook lived past the holidays, the two were able to share a few more precious months, even ringing in the New Year together.

When Cook finally passed away in February of 2017, Salvatore was heartbroken. But the bond he shared with the elderly woman has stuck with him all these years. “I feel her watching over me and it is a happy feeling,” He expressed at the time of her death. “She is out of pain and in peace, probably drinking a glass of champagne, dancing, reunited with the many friends that she's had throughout her life. I am forever a changed man and I thank this magnificent lady for everything she has taught me.”

Years later, Salvatore added to the sentiment with a post commemorating the four-year anniversary of Cook’s passing in February 2021: “Over the years I have read so many wonderful messages about how inspiring my love for my neighbor Norma was, but what truly inspires me is the great capacity she had to love me. When we choose to love another, so many others feel it too. Beautiful, bountiful, blessings bestowed upon those you never knew.” And the love and care that Salvatore and Cook shared with one another is a truly shining example that just a little kindness really does go a long way.
