New Beginings

After much procrastination and fear, I finally took the plunge and launched my blog. I have always loved writing but it felt so personal to put myself out there through my words. I know this is one of my talent (still trying to discover a new one). I always thought, maybe am too serious, maybe am not interesting enough but I think God saw differently because I have been having the leading to resume; as much as I try to ignore it and think up excuses. So this me leaping in head first and raising my glass of water to new […]

the rhyme and the stubborn quest

The Rhyme and the Stubborn Quest…

I have always wanted two girls and a boy… “maybe” another boy making it four. but that will be a very unlikely probability. Three is my perfect number, That is what I always prayed for as long as I could remember. I wanted both sex but I preferred the girls to be ratio 2:1.   When I had my daughter, I changed the rhyme to two… I don’t want three anymore, just two Lord. Give me a boy next and I am okay.   During my second pregnancy, I believed it was a boy. I bought everything in blue. Gave […]

phase of sibling rivalry

Phase of Sibling Rivalry

I remember posting about sibling rivalry in a previous post. and how I am repeating lessons taught before in this post.                                        Read Sibling Rivalry Here… Then it was Tori, now it is Nuggie. Hopefully Samuel will not take us through the same route. Even if he does, God’s grace and wisdom is bountifully available to help us handle it properly.   Nuggie said she wanted to drink water, I told her to get from the kitchen and Tori followed her. Next I heard someone crying from the kitchen. “Why is Tori always the first? Every time it’s Tori […]

available parking space for life

Available Parking Space For Life

Last week, I went out with a colleague, and he had to stop over at a supermarket for some things. It was a place he usually frequents for groceries, so he had his favorite place for parking. But on this day, he was in a hurry. Thus he wanted to park where he could easily come out without hassle. When we got to the supermarket, I heard “Oh no!” “What happened?” I asked.   According to him, he had planned to park at a perfect spot for what he intended but someone beat him to the spot.   “Okay,” I […]

different shades of children and parenting

Different Shades Of Children And Parenting

In the journey of parenting, Just when I think I have gotten a hang of it, series of new phases come up. The children are growing and they are beginning to think they are too smart for us. Nuggie came to meet me to help her tie her shoe lace. I told her to do it herself and she said: “if it were Daddy, he will tie it for me. I looked up from what I was doing. “Who am I? I asked. “Mummy” she replied, Then why do you want me to behave like daddy? She picked up her […]

a leader lies in you

A Leader Lies In You

I have had the privileged of finding myself in different roles in life. But the one I shied away from the most was leadership roles. I felt content as the creative director and to let others take the lead while I remain at the background.   I was under the wrong impression that I do not have the qualities of a good leader. I am not outspoken, nor friendly, I am too serious, and different excuses that I sold myself. Added to the fact that I am usually the shortest and youngest in whatever circle I found myself.   I […]

what are my children learning?

What are my Children Learning?

I was doing assignment with my daughter and I came across a passage in her book and I had to really ask myself, what are they learning? The dialogue’s aim was to teach how to say thank you. it reads. Eze: Good morning Uncle Ben Uncle Ben: Eze how are you? Your bag looks heavy, come into the car let me drop you Eze: Thank you Then Eze enters the car. Immediately, I reminded my daughters do not enter anybody’s car without daddy or mummy. Do not follow anybody if mummy and daddy are not there or gives permission. What […]

subtle ways your upbringing shows up everywhere

Subtle Ways Your Upbringing Shows Up Everywhere

I was going through an interesting article titled. “subtle ways your upbringing stays with you.”   Basically, the article written by Ramith Sethi says… the people you spend your life with growing up shape your world views. (well who doesn’t know that, I thought to myself). but when he went ahead to illustrate with Caithy Cronkhite’s story. I realized I didn’t know at all.   Whenever I read something, I do not think of how it is true/false and people should learn from it. Rather, I search myself to see how it applies to me and where I need to […]

the ready task and the preferred messenger

The Ready Task And The Preferred Messenger

I am reading this book that is discussing the will of God and the work that Moses did. The writer said something that struck a chord. He said God was already at work around Moses. The Israelite were ready to be saved and a land was already waiting somewhere to be occupied by them. God invited Moses to become involved with Him in his work.   I understood from this that God was already doing or has done the work behind the scenes. He wants/chooses a human/physical representative who will carry out what he has already put in place.   […]

are you ready for your requests and expectations?

Are You Ready For Your Requests And Expectations?

During our morning devotion today, we read Matthew 20 and something occurred to me. I discovered the two blind men who cried out to Jesus, kept saying “Lord have mercy on us.” Until Jesus stopped and asked, “What do you want me to do for you?” before they said what they wanted from Jesus.   I was thinking about this and I asked God… Father, look at what I saw. They did not say what they wanted and it was only Lord have mercy on us they kept saying till you stopped. Was it the lord have mercy that got […]

Saving the sorry in a bucket for others alone...?

Saving the Sorry/Thank You in a Bucket For Others Alone…?

Daughter1: Mummy, I hit my leg… Me: sorry   Daughter2: Mummy, I hit my hand… Me: sorry   These and many more are per second complaints from the girls. All these complaint for sorry… say sorry and the issue ends. I noticed even Samuel waits for sorry when something happens… if it comes, no tears but if it doesn’t…   I have been teaching them on complimenting, appreciating others and complimenting/appreciating themselves. I told them not to expect it but acknowledge it when given. I also told them they should not only do things because they will be reward for […]
