Coffee with Ameena #7

If we were having coffee, I will immediately gulp down my entire mug of black coffee. That accomplished, I will give you an extra tight hug for offering me a much needed break this week with this coffee date.

Coffee with Ameena: The marriage list

If we were having coffee, I'd apologise for having only caffeinated black coffee at the table.

Monday Motivation #2: Faults and Excuses

One of my favorite poems is titled "Richard Cory". It's about a man who was envied by the people of his community for his status, his wealth and his character. Everyone wanted to be like him and everyone wanted the life He had. Then one summer night, whilst the people were tired from toiling for… Continue reading Monday Motivation #2: Faults and Excuses
