Be kind…

“Be kind, for whenever kindness becomes part of something, it beautifies it. Whenever it is taken from something, it leaves it tarnished.” – Muhammad

You know, I’ve said before that I think it would be interesting if there were like a New Testament of the Quran. One that focused on the positives of Islam.

As some of you know, I’m an author and book reviewer. I have another site called I was reading a book called Waterkill by an author named Mark Donovan. It involved a bioterrorism attack and threat by Al-Qaeda. The book did a good job of showing that Islam is not just one sided.

In the book the above quote was at the very end, on the last page. It took me a long time to read the book for various reasons. This week the theme I chose for the Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge was Beauty.

I don’t believe in coincidences. That theme, and my finishing this book last night seems to go hand in hand.

Dreaming of Beauty,

I find pleasant thoughts abound,

A great plus indeed.

Much Respect

Female Focus Fridays: Female Bloggers I Met This Week


Here are some people that we followed each other on Twitter and/or WordPress. They all have WordPress blogs and I follow them all. I me each one this week and wanted to share them with you. There are more I am sure but these are the most recent. This will become a regular Feature on Fridays. Enjoy!


Life With Rossye

“At first I had many ideas, plans for my blog. I wanted to write about everything: fashion, makeup, fitness, healthy eating, recipes…But I had no way or opportunity to write about these things. Because I am really obsessed living and eating healthy, I decided to write about that.”-From Rossye’s Post “What having a blog means to me“.

Y’all know I love young people, and I love to encourage. Definitely encourage this young lady by following her blog. She really seems to have the enthusiasm and desire.


Single Strides

“My story begins somewhere between “sweet dreams” and “happily ever afters.” I’m a hopeless romantic who wears her heart on her sleeve as my favorite accessory. I’ve been told it’s my biggest strength, and my biggest weakness. I believe in love so fiercely that sometimes I force it more in my head than in my heart. So follow me along my single journey – whether personal or international. Now I am just a girl out looking for love and adventure. A girl who likes peppermint coffees, rainy days, rooftop bars and good reads. A girl who realized her strength only after being broken. Ready to take on the world with me?”-From Sonya’s About page.

I like the attitude and spirit of this blog, the person behind it. The story of course hits me close with the hear to n the sleeve.

Alana Munro Author

Born and raised in Scotland, I acquired a Bachelor of Arts degree from an Edinburgh University before jumping head first into motherhood, and then moving to sunny Australia.

After five years upside down in Aussie land fighting dangerous spiders and facing off cyclones, my young family and I headed back to the relative calm of the frozen north. Although, I do wonder what I will do with myself.“-From Alana’s About page.

A College Girl's Confessions

Glasses: The universal symbol for the socially awkward nerd or the uptight librarian. When I think of glasses I think of the intellectuals, the Comicon fanatics, the hipsters, and those particularly proficient in the game of Magic.

In my head….I was not the one to wear glasses. I denied my inner nerdiness. However, it seemed as if the universe was aiming to make me embrace it.

I had an eye exam appointment scheduled last week and I was sure my vision was just fine. Growing up with my mom, the concept of annual eye exams were not a thing she thought to be important so I never had one. Visiting my dad led me to an eye exam which I thought was overrated, but went anyway.

At the exam they made me stick my head in what looked to be a torture device. It was. I pressed my eye into…
