A Mothers Daughter

To the mother of the most beautiful girl I could ever wish to see, 

The beauty you brought into the world,  your efforts were done miraculously, 

Beauty of your daughter echoing through all eternity

You gave life to the most beautiful girl both now and in history

You watched her in the cradle, you protected the roof over her head,  you gave her a soft warm snug home to grow and a snug little bed. 

You have wrapped her always in unconditional love and care, you and you alone have protected her with all your heart,  and your love has followed her everyday and everywhere. 

I cannot thank you enough for the day you gave birth, The angels must of sang, For you brought to us,  an angel on Earth

Your daughter is amazing, beautiful,  sweet and true and thats all because of you

You have raised her to possess a beautiful heart,  you have raised her to be the best she can be,  and her heart of love,  came from the guidance of her wonderful mother from the very start 

You have wiped away tears in her eyes, You have seen her grow respectful of herself,  and taught her that belief and hope in the heart never dies

You raised her to know her heart will always be free, You fought for her to always be treated equally

Because of you,  she knows of her dreams and that no one can ever stand in her way,  Because of you she believes in herself, 
Because of you she’s the success that she is today

You made sure she will never be oppressed,  you made sure she will never be supressed, she is the result of your dedication, and life and love shall she be blessed, 

You should be proud,  your daughters heart and eyes are filled with love,  I believe truly that you gave birth to a beautiful destiny,  sent from the heavens above

You brought to the world the most beautiful face,  and you made my world a better place

Your daughter is the greatest I have ever knew,  she has lit up my world,  with her heart so special and true

So I am eternally grateful,  and I just want to say I am blessed to know her and its all because of you

The new royal baby

Today it was announced that Kate Middleton is expecting her third child and the world shall bask in this wonderful news. 

I have always been a fan of Wills and Kate and they bring a breath of fresh air to the royal world.  I wish them all the best. So the excitement begins of whether it will be a boy or a girl. The world shall follow this story with wonder and excitement. 

Kate suffers badly with pregnancy she is always heavily morning sick. May she be OK and we all wish her well. She is a true English princess and has the potential to follow in the footsteps of Diana. There is the aura of an angel about her just like Diana and she has made the royal family exciting once again and her story is one of a fairytale princess story we all witness as children through Disney. 

It shall be an exciting time once again with people eager to find out the news. Crowds shall gather outside the hospital in 9 months time hoping to catch a glimpse of the new born royal baby. The media shall circulate the globe. The princess we all love shall be top of the news again and talk of the world. 

It has come at a good time. Just when the world needed good news and a good thing to grip onto it shows up. This beautiful baby has reminded us all of the beauty of life and what matters most. We must make a nice new world for these new born babys and children and not one of danger. It has reminded us that beauty and love and life shall win through. 

May their baby grow strong and healthy and be wise and live in a world of beauty and peace. 

This is England

When people talk of England the immediate image that comes to mind is London, of Big Ben and the houses of Parliament and red buses. But there is so much more to England than this as I have recently found out. 

Amongst the busy times of life where we all work and watch tele and time passes by there is another part of England which exists which at times gets forgotten about by many – the beautiful English countryside. 

Recently I went to the lake district and was amazed by the beauty I saw an hour and a half away from where I live. There was lakes and mountains and fields as far as the eye could see. There was beautiful country roads passing into the distance through the mountains which spiral on into the distance what seems like forever. It was beautiful and breath taking. The long and winding roads heading to the distance as I passed on the country roads. 

Here was peace and beauty and nature. Here was the recharging energies of nature before me. This was a long world away from the big cities. This was the heart of England. The English countryside.

This is a picture I took at Wastwater lake. The beauty was breath taking and refreshing. I have never seen such beauty in England not natural beauty like this. The lake district certainly is the heart of England and there surely is no place else like the unique beauty of the English country. The whole British isles has splendid natural wonders and England possesses one of them diamonds. Where the mountain rivers flow, and the mountains are green and splendid. Here the forests are green and refreshing and the fields go long into the horizon. The waters are cold yet beautiful. 

I know all countries have natural wonder and natural beauty but this beauty is typically English. A beautiful sight of rural England. This is the real England before me and the English truth of beauty. 

While flowing along the long lonely country roads through the lakes and mountains I was stopped because of Bulls on the road. They didn’t care as this was their territory and their world. They were calm and placid and continued on the path they were taking over the fields. There was sheep scattered everywhere on the Hills and mountains and I was right in the midst of nature. It was beautiful. 
As the sun sneaks out from under a cloud and shows himself he casts his light onto the craggs and mountains way up high creating beauty. I could sit here all day and bask in nature. The joys are so much more rewarding. The view much more pleasing to the eyes and mind. 

Nature is my most favourite thing in the world. Nature is the natural world which we came from and which is the truth of life. I would hate to think of a day where there is no nature and all houses. It would be a horrible world. May mankind respect nature forever. We was born by the will of nature and in death we shall return to beautiful nature.

And I cant help but think – did those feet in ancient times walk upon Englands mountains green?

So in my own personal opinion I would choose the country over the cities for beauty and to spend time. With the beautiful little villages and the fresh air for me it is not even a hard choice. Nature is immense and wonderful. 

In my eyes the lake district certainly is the heart of England. 

Oh England I am in your garden breathing in your wonderful nature… 

My song for Europe

I am lying in my bed,  I wish that you was here, 

I need the smell of your skin,  I love the way you wear your hair, 

Its not about what you are,  its about who you are

We are kindred souls,  we possess kindred goals

I love your natural beauty,  You are truly blessed,  and within sight of you,  my mind is truly possessed 

I wish you was here,  just lying in my arms, I wish I could stroke your face,  and hold you in a passionate embrace

I wish that you was here,  where you belong,  letting me feel your warmth

I love the way you are,  I love the beauty of your soul

I love the colour of your hair against your skintone,  the most beautiful girl I have ever known

I am lying in bed, and I hug my pillow as if it is you

I want to lay with you every night,  see the moon shine through the window,  your gorgeous eyes lit up by the moonlight

I won’t let this dream of me and you fade, for in destiny it was surely made

I am thinking to myself,  How soon I need my dream to come true,  how my one true love,  it is definitely you

My heart is forever yours and I want to know you are mine,  you have always had my heart,  you have had my eyes from the very start

I am lying in my bed I am desperate for you to be here

I need you now,  I desire you now, I want to be in bed lying with you so close

I love you so much,  I love you like mad

I am lying in my bed and I wish you was here… I want the most beautiful girl I have ever known, our love has truly grown,  But I am lying here in bed… And I am all alone

The beauty of marriage

Marriage – a beautiful commitment between two souls. Where love is shown at its strongest and most powerful. 

For most of my life I never have believed in marriage. I thought it was an outdated insitution and a religious ceremony of years gone by which should of been banished to history. I believed it favoured woman traditionally over a man. In England marriage became less and less as had religion. I was one of these English people who had decided marriage wasn’t for them. 

That is of course until one day – when your eyes see the most beautiful girl who ever lived. Who changes all your dreams and desires and goals in life and you know you just have to have her. That you want to marry her. The only girl you will ever want to marry. 

That this perfect girl has to be yours truly with the ultimate commitment. That you want to be stood waiting for her to come walking towards you on your wedding day and you turn to see the most beautiful girl in the world coming towards you to marry you and be your wife and share your life forever. 

You know she has the most amazing beauty,  most amazing heart and eyes and hair and soul which you could never find anywhere else in the world and you just want her as your wife. She’s your bestest friend also in all the world and you know you would die to save her and be with her forever. 

Marriage holds beauty in the holding of hands with your one true love,  the exchanging of vows of devotion and dedication to one person forever. The beauty of commitment and love. Marriage is where dreams and families are brought together and where love can grow stronger between two people as their dreams mix together as one. There’s not much more beautiful in this life than such a vow. 

So if you have someone like that make sure you marry them and love them and be safe in the knowledge they are yours and commited to you forever and sleeps in your arms every night. Do the right thing by her and give her that show of love. Put that ring on her finger and devote to her forever. 

I want to stand before her and confess my undying love for my one true love and commit and devote to her forever before the eyes of God. I want her to be mine and love me forever. She’s the angel of my lifetime. 

This applies to everyone in every religion. Marriage is a beautiful loving ceremony. Its a new beginning for love amongst two people and hearts joined together. Its where a man has a reason for living. Knowing he has to live just to love her and be near her. Romance is beautiful in a wedding and a joining of a marriage. 

So if you have a special someone make sure you win her heart and marry her. Because imagine the devastation that you didn’t – and she became someone elses girl and the girl that you love is marrying someone else and loves him and is commiting to him forever. The thought of that is a painful hurtful one. Dont lose that oppurtunity and go for it and win her heart and make sure she is yours for if you do not then you face devastating emotion and hurt and pain forever. The hurt of knowing the dream is over and she can never be yours. 

You will be sat there thinking – I loved her, I wanted her, I needed her,  she belonged to me and your heart is in many pieces. So dont risk losing her,  dont lie or cheat or mess her around or break her trust. Keep her on the path of truth and devotion. If she’s your one true love bask in her beauty and foresake all others. 

So before its too late marry your one true love and live in eternal happiness and love forever. Never take it for granted she will be yours if you dont make the effort. Always show her you love her. Never give up on your love especially if she loves you. A womans love is strong and true to a man and without question dedicated to a man she loves. So if you have the love of a woman make sure your love is pure in return. 

So there was a time when I thought marriage was a thing of the past and living together was the future. But perhaps this is a little more primitive and less moral than marriage. Where is the joy and true commitment of love in just living together? 

I believe now marriage is the future for us all and to live within love deeply. To devote deeply and cement a nice beautiful love and family together. What beautiful values there is within such a ceremony. 

So imagine standing there before the person you love in a beautiful place vowing to love the person you love forever before people you love and care about and who love you also and re-joice in your happiness of love. What a beautiful day. 

In my eyes marriage is beautiful and the source of all true love. The union of love and the walking together into paradise. 

I wish you all a long happy beautiful marriage. You may now kiss the bride…. 

Sexism issues

Even in this modern day sexism still exists. If I worked in a company doing exactly the same job as a woman and she got paid less I would be upset. What kind of an employer would allow this?  What are their insane reasons?  I cannot understand how such a silly thing such as sexism still exists. If I owned a company I would employ people to work for me and to do the same and be paid the same regardless of their gender. 

I can only imagine this sort of behaviour is operated by men who have no respect and are still basically primitive in their mindset. They love to hold power over women and make them feel less than themselves. Are they threatened by women?  Do women make them feel uncomfortable?  I see no reason why a woman shouldn’t be paid the same as a man for the same job. 

These are the type of men who believe women in the office make the tea and call them darling and sweetheart etc what kind of ancient stereotypes are they operating on because it isn’t the same as modern day good men who respect women. 

It is upsetting to hear or read that beautiful women who have done well in jobs and been promoted people say that it happened and they have achieved this because they are pretty. Is it not because they are smart and earned it? Women have brains as well as men and have dreams, goals and ambitons and wish to have the same oppurtunities as men. 

On the other side of the debate with me being a man I dont quite understand a term often used by women of ‘a real man’. I am a man and I am real. So what does this mean?  Is this using stereotypes? What does ‘man up’ and ‘its a mans job’ mean for a woman?  Is this not also sexist against men?  What is a ‘real man’?  And what would a ‘real woman’ be?  

There is lots of sexism against men. Custody battles for children favour women,  divorce favours women,  men are expected to do the more dangerous jobs than women,  when men fight it is often seen as sport and if a man doesn’t like to fight he often is looked as less of a man. Men are forced more than women to supress certain emotions as it isn’t manly. A man is mainly forced to live a stereotypical male lifestyle. A woman recieves a lesser crime sentence for the same crime as a man. So sexism against men also exists. Men are raised to be ‘a man’ etc. 

Advertising has become sexist on the televisions etc where it displays men driving or doing DIY. I can understand men are more likely to do DIY but alot of women enjoy it also. Most household adverts are aimed at women such as washing up and laundry etc which yes still women primarily do this but is it right or wrong to display the woman? Should there not also be a man at times in these kind of adverts? Media still tries to encourage job roles and positions in society of genders. 

Also still in todays world men can sleep with as many girls as he wants and be seen as a hero but a girl does it and recieves abusive names. Thats far from equality in my eyes. Everyone is an adult who can do as they choose. As long as no one is at harm or risk. Just because they are a girl doesn’t mean they dont want to enjoy themselves the same as men. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander… 

I think sexism although often done by men exists both ways and maybe is just part of human nature sadly. We must learn to respect each other and value each other for neither gender is better or worse. It needs to be equality and teamwork. 

I think sexism at times is just ‘banter’ amongst people mainly. Whenever I have heard of it happen usually its a lighthearted joke but I would be really upset if I witnessed it properly. Once I witnessed a man from work touch the new girls bum on purpose. He had no right so I told him what I thought of him. She is not meat for him to touch she is a person. Women are not objects or possessions. 

It cannot be nice to be treated less than someone else simply because of the gender you was born. It is not fair to lessen ones chances compared to another. I certainly wouldnt like it. Workplaces should be genderless and job roles for all who wish to achieve it. People are people afterall. No one should have less oppurtunities in life. 

I admit at times maybe their should be roles in society in some places for men and women but teamwork must play a part and help each other as much as possible. 

Example being really physical jobs I can understand why this is a mans job etc as it is more challenging and harder. Heavy lifting etc if I was working along side a girl in this job I wouldn’t want to see her do that as the gentleman in me would do it for her. Soldiers and builders and sewege workers are jobs men mainly do but the oppurtunity should still be there for all. No one should ever be surpressed in their life and dreams. 

So in my opinion everyone should be allowed to follow their dreams, ambitions and be treated equally with equal oppurtunities. The future needs to be togetherness and respectfulness and equality… 

An Angels wing

Once upon a time my grandmother told me that when you find a white feather in your path an angel is near. Your guardian angel contacting and guiding you. 

I have heard this theory a few times over the years from different people and always put it down to superstition or an old wives tale etc and that its just the feather of a bird and that people were being silly. 

But recently I had my first encounter with this mystic white feather. 

I had been thinking alot lately of my grandmother who had passed on a few years ago. She had been entering my dreams etc for a short spell and reminding me of her. I wondered if she was ok wherever she was or even if she was anywhere. At times my faith is tested and at times I will be sceptical of God etc.  

Recently was one of them times where I had been sceptical of the existance of God and had a spell of trying to detatch myself and see what it felt like – to live in a world for what it was. No God,  no divine,  no spiritworld, nothing but humans wandering round on a planet existing and that we was alone. It started off strong… 

Then the dreams began of relatives passed over, of nana talking to me in her home, or sat in mums chair etc. They werent unusual dreams they were just normal dreams nothing special but the people in them had returned at a certain point.  Luck also faded slightly and finances and job became harder in a few brief days. Luck went against me etc. 

So just when I seeked a source of comfort it happened. Almost divinely it came to me. I pulled up on mums drive in my car and got out. I stood there and there was no wind and was a peaceful day when suddenly before me fell – a white feather. 

It drifted slowly to the floor and landed at my feet. I stood there and looked at it. It was a beautiful pure white feather and I had no idea where it came from. I picked it up and looked at it. It was pure white. I wondered what kind of a bird it could of come from?  Usually seagulls have grey or dark grey or blue tints on the end and there isn’t many of them where I live either.  It was brilliant white. Thats when I remembered the superstition and the myth of the white feather. Where did this feather come from? 

I have always since growing up been unsure of religion and never really followed it.  I never studied it etc. I never believed in mermaids and fairies and goblins etc and I placed angels in this category but in my mind I always believed in God and Ghosts etc. 

This was a fascinating insight into spiritual beings we are all told about through our lives. Where had this feather come from? 

It was brilliant white something like you would expect to see on an angels wings. 

Whether it was an angel close by or not or my guardian angel I shall never know but either way it was a source of comfort for me and was nice and felt happy because I felt like I was being looked after. I imagined my guardian angel. It gave me comfort and a love feeling. Was I being protected by a spiritual being helping me through life? I imagined the beautiful white wings of an angel. 

Once before I have believed I experienced an angel many years ago. I was in bed and at a low in my life. I didn’t know what to do. I was lost and alone and worried and scared. I lay in bed sad and alone. Thats when I felt a warmth take over me. I suddenly felt guidance and answers and a way forward and more at peace. It was beautiful. I felt like I had been touched by an angel. Perhaps people will say it is in my imagination who knows but whatever happened it helped me move forward. 

There could be other explanations etc and I am not someone who jumps to conclusions and immediate answers of the divine. Maybe there was a good explanation. But the idea of an angel worked for me and made me feel comfort. It helped me rise again and have direction. 

Oh at times when I am at a low how I wish I had an angel,  how I hope I do have a guardian angel who can protect me and guide me and keep me from hurt and pain and sadness. May they lead me to safety and keep me from harm and heartache. May they help me to do the right thing and help my life be the best it can be despite the pain and the sadness at times we will suffer. At times we will all be at a low. But may the angels help us rise again and guide us to a little piece of heaven on Earth that we all crave and need and want.

So may the white feathers fall close by us all,  May the divine let us know they are there with us. 

I dont believe I am blessed. No more than anyone else. Perhaps the signs are always there for us all to see. But perhaps at times with our busy lives we fail to notice. 

Do I believe in Angels… I would like to say yes
