Every Sunday I volunteer at the Mosque’s Sunday school. My usual jobs are to take the attendance of the students as they walk in to the mosque and help out the Principal with any paper work she needs me to do. Last Sunday, I was asked to substitute for the Kindergarten class because their teacher was sick. Okay! This is going to sound absolutely horrible, but I have never been happier about hearing about someone’s illness! Only because it meant that I get to spend an hour with the little ones! . Stoked with excitement I drove to mosque, and found out that the Grade one class teacher had a special activity planned for Kindergarten and her class. They had recently been learning about the creation of Allah (swt) and on Sunday they did an arts and crafts activity. They coloured a diagram of a fish and cut it out in their fish shapes, and I helped them hook their fishiees on the blue sea I created on the bulletin board using blue tissue paper. Later on, I showed them a book I found in the library, about all sorts of fish that live in the sea. They were quite amazed by some of the names, like Tiger fish and Blue glass guppy etc. There was one name that stood out the most: The black Veil Tail fish. I read that one out loud to them with a tone of confusion and slight amusement and they all broke out into laughter. I wondered who really names these fish? Anyways, I turned the page and went on to showing them other fish in the sea with weird names. Three pages into the book and they had seen so many strange names of fish that when they saw a diver swimming along with the fish, one of the kindergarten girls commented, “Oh look! there’s a human fish!”. And the class broke out into laughter once again.

I have seen many inspirational pictures, videos and movies in my life, and I have read or heard amazing stories that have motivated m, and I keep a list of them all. You have already seen some of the pictures from my collection of Inspirations and Motivations, so I thought I’d share a video for a change. This is by far one of the best videos I have seen, and I hope all you lovely people watch it too and take from it something special.
Do you have a Lollipop moment?
Yours Truly sharing her inspiration =) x
I plead guilty!

“When two things make physical contact, we say they are touching. However, atoms of one object can never touch the atoms of another. You know that an atom is nucleus, positively charged and is surrounded by a cloud of electrons of negative charge. The nuclear force between the two atoms is too strong for the electrons to make contact with the nucleus. There is always space between them. When two atoms are forced into contact a force called electromagnetism prevents electrons from actually making contact with each other. No matter how hard you push two surfaces together, there will always be that space between the electrons”
Mind you, I am more of an English/Human studies type of nerd, so science, especially of the physics and chemistry variety, is not my forte. But that day chemistry felt like it had more to it than just the electronegativity of electrons. The connection might sound vague and for the lack of a better word, stupid but it some how seems to put the puzzle pieces together. It made me think about people. Are humans like that too? No matter how close two people get, maybe there is a wee bit of space between them too. Space that we don’t give up or can’t give up. Or, we are unaware that the space is even there. You could have a very close connection with someone, but maybe, just maybe there will always be space that separates you from them. So, when the person leaves you, why does it feel as if a part of you left with them?
