Political Compassion, People!

Published October 18, 2012 by Natalie D. Sparrow

Recently, my five-year old son and another boy did a re-enactment of the political debate for their classroom. I’m very proud of him because he has always been with me. He never went to preschool since I decided to teach him myself until the required school age. Time flew for us, and my baby officially began his first year in school this last September. I thought he would have a hard time being away from home but I think it was really me having an issue with the inevitable fact that they grow so fast.

At first he was very quiet and shy in class, but all of sudden he’s a debater. (I think I know where he gets that from.) Later, I found out he was chosen to re-enact Mitt Romney, and I had to let him watch the debate so he can get some tips from both grown men.

I wont go into which side I’m on because quite frankly despite the fact that I am a strong “who cares,” to me most politicians are  puppets on a string. I would hate to lose my peace especially to individuals who more often than not cowardly succumb to the desires of special interest groups. I know of quite a few people who disassociate themselves from those they we’re friends with or close to,  just because they differ at the polls. I truly abhor that and it makes me nauseous to hear the same people speak about unconditional love or loving thy neighbor. Where is the love in that? It is important to vote and express ourselves regarding all the issues, but in the process and during the campaigns let’s have some political compassion with those around us.

Don’t lose the peace people!

The sweetest and cutest debater

Anyway, back to  the sweetest and cutest debater in the world. I couldn’t believe that my son actually watched the entire debate. I think he was tired because I doubt he understood much of what was actually being said (at least I would hope so). The next day, he did very well and it was a positive experience for him. “I hope everyone has food,” his main repetitive line gave me goosebumps and made me smile proudly. I’m sure he learned a lot from  watching the debate and the entire experience. However, I couldn’t help but notice that perhaps it is the politicians and the adults that need to sit in a classroom full of five-year old children for a few minutes to get some tips from them. Yes, little people fight and disagree but at the end of the day,  the argument is forgotten and you’ll most likely find them playing and working together on assignments. The friendship is restored and they have their peace!!!

Nominated for One Lovely Blog Award!!

Published October 14, 2012 by Natalie D. Sparrow

I’ve been nominated for the One Lovely Blog by http://ofmindormatter.comHe has a really inspiring blog with lot’s of beautiful and deep ideas. I really like that a lot of his family is involved in humanitarian work, they are a group of inspiring people. He’s written a book which seems awesome, and I have added it to my list of reads. I think he might be a little crazy though, because he lives right by the Arabian Sea and barely pays it a visit, but then I live fairly close to the beach and rarely pay it a visit.  Check out his blog he has a lot of beautiful posts and a degree in philosophy.  Thanks a lot for the nomination http://ofmindormatter.com!

So these were the rules

1.  Thank and link back to the person that nominated you…

2   Post the award picture in your post.

3.  Tell 7 things about yourself.

4.  Nominate 15 other bloggers and notify them of the nomination.

So a bit about me,

I loooooooove mint chocolate.

I’ve been wanting to post for a while and I haven’t been able to because my husband is hogging my laptop (he will pay for it, muahahaha) 🙂

I also like to write laying down, which is why I need my laptop.

I like to write fiction which is probably why I write laying down, it gives me a dreamy feeling and thoughts just flow. I may have to invest extra time the next morning correcting spelling errors but at least the ideas are out.

Right now, I’m working on a couple of children’s stories.

One of the stories has evolved into a screenplay, but I’m still learning more and more about that.

This blog helps me take some time away from fiction, to ponder the present moment and enjoy life with those around me. Thank you all for  your kind words and for encouraging me one way or another, it really means a lot to me.

Now for the nominations,
