The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with joy. – Henri Nouwen

And that particular effort is what I love the most about LAYCON and NENGI. The expression of their gratitude is sweetly received in their diary sessions and in their bursts of delight with shouts of thank you on receiving.

Education comes from within; you get it by struggle and effort and thought.Napoleon Hill

The same can be said of our bundle of joy and happiness, DORATHY , bubbling over from gratitude and appreciation for the gifts and opportunities afforded her.



1. a vigorous or determined attempt.

However when it comes to morning workouts, effort is sorely wanting for both LAYCON…..

And pretty beautiful NENGI. Most mornings both of them are not up to it and prefer to exchange pleasantries about cleaning and washing their faces in the morning before gym starts. Oh oh …….NENGI will have nothing of that, she washes face after gym. LAYCON on the other hand prefer to open his pores when he wakes up in the morning.




a force exerted by a machine or in a process.

Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.”     —Theodore Roosevelt 

In this regard we can only salute LAYCON, DORATHY and NENGI for their concerted effort to bring their ‘A game’ when preparing for and executing tasks. For the effort they make, brings joy to the viewers. And oh yes, they have cashed in for their “No bees, No honey, No work, No money.” –  Author Unknown- attitude towards their work.

I’ve had a disruptive week, and it will continue throughout the week, this the utility has promised us, there will be power cuts. I just gave to adjust myself, and catch up as the show moves merrily along without me.

Wishing you a glorious Saturday.


Interesting fact: You get an ‘A for effort‘ when you do your best, even though your work might not be top-notch. We know that letter grades with “A” as the highest attainable grade were first used in the USA in the latter part of the 19th century. The origin of the idiom ‘A for effort‘ isn’t attributed to any one person or school; it has been in use since the 1940s.
