HIS WAYS ARE NOT OUR WAYS

There was a new role advertised in the office – one that I and everyone else agreed that I was the best fit. So, I went on to apply and waited for the shortlisting process to be complete. As expected, I cut alongside six others who got invited for a chat – I was excited! I went for the chat and aced it from the feedback received. Then, I took my eyes off the ball and forgot to prepare for…

THE BLESSING CALLED FOOD

Today I watched a street urchin hungrily devour the left-over snack flung out from a moving car. Gratitude washed over me like morning dew. It is one sight I will not forget in a hurry, at least not in this season of many uncertainties. That street urchin reminded me to be grateful for food and many other necessities of life which are readily available whenever the needs arise -these privileges should never be taken for granted. I silently reprimanded my…

GRATITUDE – AN EXTRACT FROM A MEDICS DIARY

Gratitude is all my heart holds this season because 2020 has been an EVENTFUL year for everyone. The gift of life and mental sanity has been topmost for a number of us who have had to live with constant anxiety, fear of the unknown, and trying to adapt to new experiences like working from home. It has been a year where my emotions have been on a rollercoaster and almost on the brink of a mental breakdown because my job…

LIFE IS LIKE A BISCUIT RACE 

 I can never forget my very first experience of an actual competition. It was in nursery class; I must have been about 3 or 4 years old. For a couple of weeks, the teachers had been preparing us for a short distance race for the upcoming school inter-house sports day. The race was named the Biscuit Race – it required contestants to eat a handful of biscuits at the starting line once the whistle was blown and then race to…

GUEST POST – REMEMBER

Steve Goodier is one man you all should read and follow as his articles are always thoughtful and inspiring. I love the lesson learnt from my last read and will share below with his permission. One woman complained to a friend that she couldn’t remember anything from one day to the next.“Let me get this straight,” he said. “You can’t remember anything from one day to the next. How long has this been going on?”She said, “How long has what been going…

Make Your Heart a Safe Place for His

TSPOON93 is an email address I subscribed to. They send me inspiring mails daily. Sometimes after reading through I feel obligated to share, like this piece below. You’d think I would know everything by now. Or at least everything about him. But here we were married for over 20 years and I was finding out something I never knew. A story he’d never told another living soul. Not until me. Not until now. We’d simply been sitting there, quietly cuddling and chatting…

THE UNPLANNED PREGNANCIES OF LIFE

Last week I got a call from my good friend Tricia, she sounded so frantic and on the verge of tears. Her respond to my – “hello darlyn” was, ‘its three (3) days late! It is always on time! It’s never late! Am so scared! As the words rushed out I recalled having this same conversation with her two years ago and the result was – Joy (Tricia’s second child). What is late? I asked feigning ignorance. My cycle, Tricia answered…

ONLY A MOM!

Mummy, mom, mama, mami, mma, nne, or ma are all variations of the word mummy, a referral or name of endearment for a birth or surrogate mother, an elderly woman or any woman who plays the role of a mother over another. The only creation with the unmatched ability to turn an abode into a warm, loving and inviting home. Only a mom has the supernatural ability to nurture, love and watch over her own with fierceness. She sees success…

A DIFFERENT NEW YEAR RESOLUTION

As we begin 2013, I want to wish all my readers and friends a Happy New Year! I trust that you have all given  warm New Year hugs and greetings to all the loved ones around as I have. I also believe that the different Telcos and social media served us well as our good will messages and prayers were speedily delivered to those the hugs could not reach.  New years are beautiful because we are given the opportunity to…
