"Our Land-Our Happiness"

When we talk about land, we associate it with our lives for without our land, how will we build our lives? As a woman I see land as a contributing factor to our happiness as an individual, family, community and even our society. When a woman has a can-do attitude, everything is possible. She will be able to provide for her family whether it may be through her hard work in the office or by using the available land around her and even by holding on to her faith. At times when a hard working office lady comes home with a lot on her mind, gardening helps to relive her mind and even the blooming orchids or lovely flowers in the front yard bring about her million dollar smile.

Land lying idle is useless but with our effort, dedication and hard work makes it more useful. To landowners around the world, be grateful for every piece of land that you own and count yourself fortunate to even own them for in other parts of the world, people are not at peace for there are no land for them to even call their own.

Nowadays we see problems associated with land and I believe that women can make a difference by raising our children and teaching them to love, share and be grateful for the little things that they own. As the saying goes, everything starts from our little world we call Home.

How wonderful it is to hear a voice from my dear south pacific. Yes, we should be grateful for what we have as so many women are driven off their husband's land when they are widowed or never have the opportunity to own land. I hope that you will continue to share your thoughts and tell us more about the place you call home. Best wishes to you,
Janice

Thank you for your comment Janice and yes people around the world face different kind of problems associated with land. In my country native land are owned collectively and not individually so women are secured if they have children in their marriage because they have rights to their land. We are proud of our tradition and relation and grateful to God for the lives of our leaders whose wisdom and knowledge came up with rules and regulations that govern our land which allows us to live in peace with each other .When we face hardship over our land, we face it together as a clan and not individually and that is why I believe that women can make a difference by raising children to be god fearing and full of love for a better tomorrow.Seeing other country and people who are landless and being driven away makes me realize how fortunate we are and so much blessed to even have something that we call our own, the place we call HOME.
