Self Education… My Education

My husband and I attended a small surprise birthday party weeks ago alongside my husband; So I looked forward to it because this is my first time attending a surprise party. While we were enjoying the beautiful ambience of the waterside, watching the twinkling stars and the light reflection move along with the waves, the celebrant came in. The guests were all smiling, were we not to sing or shout surprise or something? At least that’s what happens in movies right? Standing on shaky legs, I ignored the voice telling me ‘oversabi. Did they call you? are you the only […]

Bless The Lord, Oh my Soul… 

I was to travel for a meeting, by my calculations, I should be there by 8:30(if I was too late) but I found myself just leaving the park by 8:30… Ha! Calls kept coming in, where are you? Are you almost there? I had to switch off my phone because I was becoming tensed. By 10am, I was still on my way for an 8:30 meeting. So I prayed; “God please delay the meeting till I get there in Jesus name. Long story short, the meeting started about an hour after I got there. Call it coincidence but I see […]

Partner… the easier way to more creative vibe

When we think of ideas and businesses most times, we think of what we can do, how we can start… how we can hoard all the ideas, so people do not steal it.   We forget two head is better than one… one chase a thousand, two ten thousand   Sometimes, we cannot do everything ourselves, For instance, you may have an idea. but it will require you learning how to make the thing but you have zero interest in learning it.   I have different designs for children clothe in my notebook. but I will rather not learn how […]

Something Called Essence…Remember It?

A friend sent me a message recently, in her words she said “I am craftless, help me.” I share this because it was a very ironic statement. While we were in school, she was the go to person for everything. From electronics repair, to phones, clothes e.t.c. whatever you want mended or repaired, she will figure it out; with no formal training whatsoever.   She was bursting with creativity and I wished I could do half of the things she did. She topped that up with a formal training in fashion design.   She has been busy with marriage and […]

wife... where are you in the equation?

Wife… Where are you in the equation?

Last quarter of 2017 I noticed I was feeling restless, not satisfied with myself. Like something was missing, what could be that you may ask, well that was the question I kept asking myself too. I am married, have a job, with children… so what could be the matter? That should be okay right? I got irritated easily at myself and everyone and I didn’t know what was missing. Nobody could understand even when I explained.   I started asking God questions, what is wrong God, why am I feeling this way? I read different books.   On social media, […]

Break out and  Battles

I started experiencing break out (pimples) on my face pretty early (from age nine). I didn’t give it much thought then, but later I started using different products (soap, cleanser, cream, Apple Cider, E.t.c) to clear them off. There were times I used some products and nothing seems to be happening for a day or two. Only to wake up one day to see my entire face covered with more break out… The more I used the more it came till I thought, this is not working and abandoned the product. One day, someone said: “keep using it, it will […]

The Impression

There is a salon opposite my house owned by a Muslim lady, who is pregnant. I go there once in a while. Months ago I noticed the place has been closed for a while. I thought the lady had travelled or something. In fact I didn’t give it much thought. But I noticed whenever I am at the backyard, and I look towards the place. The thought kept coming to me to pray for her. I always brushed it aside, telling myself I was being paranoid. But the impression kept coming anytime I went to the backyard, which was many […]

Major and Minor Distractions

My children are always eager to help with chores. I oblige them by giving them age appropriate tasks whenever I can. On Saturday, during bath time. I was in their room picking out clothes for them. As usual, they followed me. They were playing around the room. Nuggie entered the wardrobe and sat beside me. Tori took the basket of clothes and ran around with it, pretending it was a car. While Samuel our footballer tried to keep himself standing long enough to kick a ball. I picked out Tori and Nuggie’s clothes. I wanted to drop them in my […]

Passenger or Controller?

Photo credit: Kstonecc.org Last week, I took a bike. At the T-junction was a traffic controller. He gave my lane go ahead, while we were crossing I looked to my left. A truck was hurtling down at a high-speed and I got scared. I hope this driver can see the traffic controller’s hand signaling he stops. I thought worriedly. The car screeched to a halt before he came to the junction. I breathed a sigh of relief as we rode away. The raised hand was the only thing the traffic controller did. He did not leave his position because he […]

The Eye

My girls were playing beside me outside while I worked…few minutes later they was a scuffle. Tori wanted to sit down but mischievous as usual Nuggie stretched her leg out and told her to find somewhere else to sit. “Nuggie bring down your leg, I want to sit down.” Tori said. “No, sit somewhere else.” She answered with her hand holding on firmly and her small legs stretched as far as they could go. I watched them covertly to see where it will lead. Tori tried pushing her but she did not budge by then she was already teary. When […]
