Remember to be grateful…

Life...Take 2

because I know sometimes in this rushed world we live in we don’t always take the time to stop and be thankful for the good things we have.  This morning, for example, I woke up, was super groggy, desperately needed coffee, and had to rush to let my dogs out and then get to work.  The sun was starting to come up and as soon as I stepped outside to walk the pups (pics of the fur babies below) I looked up and saw that the sky was this amazing shade of pink.   I instantly smiled, felt more awake and calm and was very grateful for such a beautiful morning to start of this new week.

GIYANI- The mocking phrase ‘Yena aya kwini’? owner, July Hlupheka Mabunda (60) is using a wheelchair after his painful fall on the ground.

According to Giyani View’s source Mabunda on the day of the incident took so much drinks that led Mabunda to fall down at one of local liquor stores in Bambeni village outside Giyani town.
