The Love of a Child by J.M. Lysun (Original Haiku)

I recently “met” J.M. on, where I am the creator of several award winning blogs. I reblogged his post about kindness and loved how he made it so easy and accessable for people to make that difference.

I hear the Las Vegas wind whirling outside and thunderstorms are predicted, so my original plans of taking the bus to pick up some things from the store might be changed.

J.M.’s blog is insightful and showed great wisdom and was written with precision, carving each word as though it were alabaster or marble as Michelangelo transformed stone into a statue. (That is an image I created and wrote about in an Honors English assignment in high school at Garden Grove High years ago. I was asked to write about what writing meant to me.)

J.M. has written a children’s book and has many other projects in the works that I look forward to staying abreast of.

I asked him to write a Haiku for The Haiku Train on Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate…and so he did.

I loved it so much I wanted to share it here.

Easily forgiven
The love of a child
Against the storm of tantrums
Will always prevail

Miss Polly’s Easy Healthy Breakfast Parfait


How would you like a recipe that is so easy that your 7 year old child can make it and you can be free to do other things while you child learns how to “cook” something for your family?

Breakfast Parfaits come to the rescue here…..

Just get a parfait glass (looks prettier), but you can do it with a bowl.

Put some Greek yogurt or flavored peach yogurt or strawberry yogurt on the bottom of the bowl and add your favorite flavor of granola (lowfat or regular).

Trader Joe’s is full of all kinds of flavors of granola and so is Whole Foods Market,

Experiment around and try different flavors, There is no wrong to do this!

Then add fresh fruit to the top: bananas-full of potassium, strawberries, raspberries and a drizzling of orange flower honey for good measure.

Enjoy your family and be thankful for each delicious bite.

This is so much better for you than eggs and greasy bacon or sausage.

I hope you like it!

What do you want to do when you grow up?

This question has been asked so many times before, but goals are so important to human beings, especially children.

I am going to ask you- What can you picture yourself doing in your mind’s eye- imagine yourself doing that you would love more than anything?

I just discovered that I could upload in several sizes like this large size!

I am also going to ask another question, which is:

What qualities do you feel you possess now and what qualities/abilities/talents would you like to have more of?

There are no right and wrong answers here.

I am also not going to have a word count limit either because I want this site to foster communication and THOUGHT and IDEAS that lead to more PRODUCTIVE LIVES and HAPPIER FUTURES.

I had thought about creating this site countless times, but didn’t know how to begin. So, after much thought of the name of the site, which was the most crucial, I simply created it.

Those who judge what they do too much, never accomplish anything worthy because they are always too afraid of what others think, or of failing.

Guess how many failed attempts each inventor had before they created an invention?

The answer to that question is thousands!

I hope you have fun with this writing exercise and I also hope you share your answers with your parents. That will lead to closer family ties as well.

Good luck!

Here is to the future engineers, doctors, scientists, fireman and woman, future presidents, writers, dreamers and the believers and here is to the children of the world-this gift of a web site that I hope fosters thought and communication and believing in your own abilities you were given.

Given with love,
