My little man woke up early. I just finished preparing the boys’ food so I told my little man we could spend a few hours reading stories. We read the story of the Cock and the Jewel.
A Cock was busily scratching and scraping about to find something to eat for himself and his family, when he happened to turn up a precious jewel that had been lost by its owner.
“Aha!” said the Cock. “No doubt you are very costly and he who lost you would give a great deal to find you. But as for me, I would choose a single grain of Barleycorn before all the jewels in the world.”
The Hottest Mommas
I belong to a mommy group and we fondly call ourselves the Hottest Mommas. We share blog opportunities and tips on how to improve our craft. We also share a few petty problems and by the end of our conversation end up laughing.
What I love about our group is we tag each other on social media if we see opportunities. If the opening calls for a beauty blogger, for instance, we call the attention of our blogger and Makeup artist friend Mhaan. It is safe to say we support each other. We also respect and acknowledge each other’s niche.
Be content with your life
Precious things are for those who prize them.
Opportunities are like those precious gems the cock found one day. Sadly though, not all opportunities are meant for us. There are chances and breaks intended for others, and it is but prudent to share those with them. After all, what benefit will those opportunities bring us if they aren’t for us in the first place? I find being contented with life better than pushing for something not meant for us.
