From Me To You..... True friendship is hard to come by these days and we all know too well that when we are blessed enough to have found such a friend, that he/she is worth holding onto and looking after. To be a true friend is not only being there when the going is good, it’s taking time to listen, offer support and encouragement and putting your own needs aside for someone other than yourself. This little poem says it perfectly!

If I could catch a rainbow I would do it just for you, And share with you its beauty on the days you’re feeling blue. If I could build a mountain You could call your very own, A place to find serenity, a place to be alone If I could take your troubles I would toss them in the sea, But all these things I’m finding are impossible for me I cannot build a mountain, or catch a rainbow fair, But let me be what I know best, A friend who’s always there.

The disaster management centres in the Eastern and Southern Cape were placed on high alert over the weekend after heavy rain, strong winds and high seas lashed the coast from Cape Point to Port Elizabeth. Hundreds of houses were flooded and residents were left temporarily displaced. One person is reported to have drowned whilst crossing a low level bridge in the Uitenhage area. In the Rosedale area six houses were flooded, while in Botma Street in Uitenhage five houses were also reportedly flooded. Uitenhage received a 125mm, Fort Beaufort received 43mm, Grahamstown 34mm and Addo 25mm. The average level of major storage dams supplying the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality increased by 3% after good rain fell in the city’s catchment areas. On Friday the average dam level was 31.1%. Finally after ten weeks of decreasing levels our dams received good rains, but we are not out of the water yet.

Food for Thought.....

Kommunikasie gaan nie net oor praat nie, maar ook oor luister, lees en skryf. Nie een van hierdie aktiwiteite is moontlik sonder taal nie. Elke mens MOET dus taal aanleer. Om taal aan te leer begin reeds van die geboortedag af - daardie eerste belangrike verbale kontak met jou kind. .. Jou kind se taalontwikkeling en denkvermoe, en latere skryf en lees, word bepaal deur die gesprekke wat jy van sy babadae af met hom voer. Liefdevolle, sinvolle stimulering en voordurende sosiale kontak en kommunikasie is dinge wat n’ pa en ma aan kind kan verskaf sonder dat dit hulle n’ sent gaan kos. En boonop verseker jy as ouer dat jy jou kind .. se taalvermoe optimaal ontwikkel. So, om te praat, te praat en nogmaals te praat oor allerhande dinge, gevoelens en onderwerpe met jou kind van die eerste geboortedag af, is uiters belangrik vir taalgereedheid. Jy mag dalk dink jou kind verstaan nie..en reageer nie, maar die inneem van daardie woordeskat vestig stelselmatig n’ vermoe om sinvol te kan gesels by die kind. .. Hoe.. beinvloed n’ goeie taalvermoe u kind se lewe? n’ Goeie taalvermoe by u kind gaan soveel fasette van sy lewe positief beinvloed: * sy selfbeeld * sy leergierigheid * die ontwikkeling van intellektuele potensiaal * sy begrip van reg .. en verkeerd * SY LEESVERMOE. Die beskikbaarheid van goeie leesstof op die kind se vlak sal n’ geinteresseerdheid vir boeke by u kind skep. Die lees van kinderstories kan nie genoeg beklemtoon word nie.

Happy Birthday Baie geluk Anlo met jou derde verjaarsdag. Liefde mamma, pappa en boetie.

Sukses Die geheim van sukses staan geskryf in ses towerformules: opregtheid, integriteit, nedrigheid, hoflikheid, wysheid en barmhartigheid.

Nou van gesegdes kan ons baie se maar ek dink steeds dit is in onse taal wat dit so mooi uitegebeeld word. Geld is n’ belangrike ding en mens kan daarsonder niks doen nie. Dis juis hierdie feit wat my op Vryheids dag, 27 April aan die dink gekry het. Ons metro is kwansuis bankrot en dinge lyk maar donker op die horison vir wie ookal die verkiesing gaan wen en n’ burgermeester gaan inhuldig. Die staatskoffers is leeg weens wanbesteding, korrupsie en sommer net pleinweg diefstal. Verder het die ‘liefde’ wat ons vir die 2010 wereld beker gehad het vinnig verdwyn toe FIFA se Seb se mense onttrek en ons met die gebakte pere laat. Dit is nie lank gelede nie wat ek geskryf het oor hoe wonderlik die wereld beker was en hoe lieflik dit was om op ons eie wereld klas stadion te kon sit en my verwonder aan die majesteit van ons nuwe Suid Afrika. Om te dink dat dit alles so gou verdwyn het toe ons uitvind dat die metro se bestuur ons heeltemal bankrot spandeer het aan al hierdie dinge sonder om ooit te dink aan die dag van more. Ek is veral verstom oor die BRT of Bus Rapid ‘dissapearing’ system because of the Taxi. Het iemand al probeer sin maak van die verkeersligte in Govan Mbeki Rylaan? En het iemand al gemerk dat die sogenaamde ‘buslane’ net gebruik word deur die taxis en dat die busse die verkeer ophou in die motors se baan? Dit is hierdie tipe dinge wat ons liefde so vinnig by die deur uit laat gaan. Dinge wat ons laat wonder of ons wonderlike land met sy hard verdiende Vryheid enige kans staan om reg te kom en nie die pad van ons buur land te stap nie. Kyk, dat Suid Afrika n’ beter plek is na Apartheid is n’ feit, ons het media Vryheid, finansiele vooruitgang, internasionale sport en vele meer voorregte. Maar hierdie beteken niks as ons deur n’ minderheid geboelie word en steeds gebuk gaan onder n’ ‘elite’ groep nie. Die armes bly arm, die rykes word oor belas, die middel klas word kleiner en net nog een van ons verbrokkelde drome wat ons in 1994 gehad het. My vriende en mede republikeine; ons moet ons hard verdiende reg om te stem verdedig. Ouers moet hulle kinders aan die oor sleep tot by die stem busse want ons het n’ baie belangrike rol om te speel op 18 Mei hierdie jaar. As jy dit nie doen nie, is die verdere verval van ons stad nie meer die bestuur van die metro se skuld nie. Dit sal jou skuld wees, want jy verdien die party wat jy kry. Of jy nou vir hom/haar gestem het of nie. Ek sien uit na 19 Mei want ek dink die metro gaan n’ surprise kry! En dit mag dalk net wees dat die liefde saam met die geld terug na die metro kan lok en dat daar n’ nuwe ‘bruidspaar’ in die munispale kantore gaan inloop.

Die moeilikste deel van sukses is dat jy dit nie net een keer kan doen en dan bly dit so nie. Jy moet aanhou werk daaraan. Irving Berlin

n’ Mens kan sy voornemens he, maar die laaste woord daaroor kom van die Here af. Spreuke 16:1

Doen altyd goed op elke manier wat jy kan, in elke moontlike plek, te alle tye en teenoor alle mense. Doen goed so lank as wat dit vir jou moontlik is. John Wesley
