“Summer the Magic Blanket” a book By Litsa Bolontzakis
‘Summer the magic blanket. My book about the Seasons! I feel that it speaks ions about guiding children to love themselves and experience the wonder of nature as it unfolds.
Sometimes it can be the little things which can bring the most happiness! Children are so innocent that anything can bring a smile to their faces and it doesn’t need to be something particularly special. I feel adults have forgotten the hidden joy of finding wonderment in the simpler aspects of life the way children do.
The love of reading is the best gift that can be bestowed upon a young child. It enables them to travel to different places and meet astounding people through the narratives. Can you imagine that tinkle in their eyes filled with dreams when you see them reading a book? I have seen people making the mistake of thinking children have no personalities of their own and will simply obey and function like robots.
My lovely eight-year granddaughter is a perfect example! When she is weary from the day she does things which she is not supposed to do and can work up quite a temper. As parents, it is our job to feel them, and make them comfortable, also to allow enough leisure time during the day for that purpose.
Adults think that only they get stressed about life and need a break. Children can very much need a break too! The problem is that children can often not tell the difference between a calm state of mind and one that is over stimulated; we must step in to maintain the balance. This will allow the children to recover from mental and physical strain and also affect their behavior positively.
Think about the things you wanted when you were a kid. Is it not normal for your child who has been awake since the crack of dawn to want attention and rest? Welcome them with open arms when they return home and give them their favorite thing to eat and a thought-provoking book to engage their minds. They’ll love you all the more for it!
There is no magic, other than the magic we create ourselves by having a great time enjoying life, a beautifully uncomplicated life.
Summer the Magic blanket a book they will love!A little blanket that made it possible for Evangelia to dream and fly away like a butterfly!
Our children deserve just that!
Anarchy and violence are rampant in our world,
It is very discouraging to live every day with fear.
There is no peace!
I feel that the world is like a pot of water that is starting to boil and the funny thing is you don’t know where the next bubble is going to be!
The same thing with the violent acts, we don’t know when and where they are going to happen next!
How sad the world is, how cheap life has become!
There is no respect for life on this planet, all kinds of life, it’s like we have more hate than love.Therefore, we have no peace!
We wake up in the morning and go to bed at night, always wondering, why? And is it ever going to end, will it get better?
Senseless killings, destruction of properties, so much pain and we all wonder why!
Is it because I was born in a place that is beautiful and rich, and you want what I have? You are feeling that I don’t deserve what I have, I m not worthy enough in your eyes to have what belongs to me, therefore you take it by all means.No peace!
It is not only that you want what I have, like my inheritance my country, my life, but you want it for free and you will do whatever it takes to take it!
Powerful people will stop at nothing to get what they want.
They are arrogant and they believe they deserve whatever their eyes can see.
There is a verse in the Bible that I love and it says,”Don’t make me too rich and I forget about you or too poor and I turn against you”
You would think that being rich one can be happy and satisfied, but life has proven something very different, many rich individuals never have enough and they will stop at nothing until they get what they want! And that has a name, Greediness!
With money comes power, a power that makes you feel invincible, untouchable, nothing can touch you, and when you start to feel the power that money gives you it is inevitable, you will change!
In order to be happy, we want the planet to have peace!
I refuse to watch the news.
I hear what is happening from friends and social media.
My prayers are with the people of France tonight!
My heart is hurting for Nice!
Why Is There So Much Suffering?
All lives matter! All life is precious!
I find myself wondering about how people cause the suffering of others that are deemed different from them. The paradox moves me deeply as I find that our similarities are more profound than our differences. I have always felt that the black race has paid a great price for their existence and has perhaps suffered the worst of all!
Despite their centuries of quiet protest against the usurpation of their rights, I feel their voice has been muffled by more powerful people. How can I not think of the agonizing of women when I myself am one? Perhaps their only crime is being born a woman.
And I ask again, why so much suffering?
Turn on the news and you will hear about children being kidnapped and trafficked. It is things like this that can never be forgiven and justice must prevail! In a world where humans are of little consequence, animals have it even worse.
Is anyone living a life of peace and harmony? Why can we not co-exist and love each other? It seems like people are bound in a vicious circle to repeat their mistakes and cruelty. Perhaps so much has happened in human history that love and mutual respect seems unattainable. I feel there is no humanity left which can distinguish right from wrong and set the record straight.
It haunts me how mankind is bleeding out from the atrocities that we hear about every day. I often find myself crying because as a human I feel so helpless and even others cannot find an end to this conundrum.
Maybe God- the supreme creator of the universe has an answer that we simply cannot see. The Bible talks about the helplessness of people to choose the right path for themselves then what can we do except put faith in God to rectify our problems! It is my prayer that the ugliness can be kept at bay in a world which was meant to be one of mesmerizing beauty when it was created by God.
