Dates sandwiched between an oat mixture.  


Here is an online recipe to try.


Date Square

I have met people who tried to make date square and failed but with diligence had a fantastic batch of date squares.

There’s that word ‘Diligence‘ –

Diligence is steadfast application, assiduousness and industry—the virtue of hard work. It is one of the seven heavenly virtues that people keep talking about.

Diligent behavior is indicative of a work ethic — a belief that work is good in itself.

Diligence is one of the key ingredients for success in school,college, university but it’s also important for success in life. Diligence finds a way to overcome obstacles.

Diligence means that we are continually working toward our goals, making use of what resources and opportunities are available with a work ethic that transforms vision to reality.



is there anything too hard

too complicated, too difficult

for me,

they said it was out of reach

for me,

i will use faith,

the mother of invention,

diligence the teacher,

to make a way

for me..©
