Look At My Hair!

Thanks darkelcee. I┬áhaven’t had internet access for a while (still don’t) but I am good. Thanks for all the comments on my last post, I am trying to be extra watchful now. I am so impressed with how well my hair is doing. I cut it in June 2006 and decided to let it grow natural and IT’S BEEN TOUGH! You guys, natural hair is so crazy! You can barely do anything with it and sometimes combing it is torture -but as it grows it gets easier. I now know how to comb it and what kind of products can […]

HELP!

Abeg make una come help me oh! Solomonsydelle, how do you do it? It’s not easy with 3 small kids -even with a help! This morning I was in my room with my kids while their nanny was with the baby (or so I thought) next thing, my almost 3 year old leaves my room and comes back in with what looks like powder on his face “Mummy I put powder”. I smiled at him and wondered to myself how he had gotten hold of the powder as I had tried to put it beyond his reach. Next thing I […]

Friends Are Hard To Find!

I can be really emotional and needy. I remember coming home as a child and crying to my mum “No one loves me mummy”. Over the years, through the knowledge of Christ, I have become much less needy but I still yearn for earthly friendships. Of course my best friends are in my immediate family, but apart from them I often ask myself who really are my friends. It’s funny because people who “know” me will swear I have tons of friends, as I seem to know everyone, but knowing people and having friends are two different things. My seeming […]

Love

“Love is a beautiful thing” goes the line of a popular song, and I totally agree. True love (not lust or infatuation) is truly a beautiful thing and for me, nothing paints the picture of true love more than seeing an old couple holding hands and looking lovingly into each others eyes. When I think of true love, I think about my folks -now my parents aren’t the type given to open displays of affection but you could feel the love in the air when they were together. Whenever they were apart for long stretches my dad (of blessed memory) […]

Another Great Birthing Experience!

My daughter is 3 weeks now, and she’s just a darling. She is the most peaceful baby ever! I just Praise God! Well, let me tell you the events that led to her birth. 30th December- I woke up and saw my show, tried not to get too excited because for my first child I had my show 2 weeks before I went into labour. Anyway, I decided not to go to church, mainly because I was tired of people asking me why the baby hadn’t come yet (my E.D.D. was 23rd Dec). Later that day, I felt some tightening […]

It’s a Girl!

Okay! I am so excited and now I can say yes, mamalopes… baby don come! My Princess Olanna arrived at 4.50 am on the 31st of December weighing 3.6kg. Not only is my baby here, God gave me my hearts desire… a daughter! I love my boys and Praise God for them, but we needed a little more softness and sweetness in the house. For me she was the perfect gift from God in the year 2007. I mean, she erased all the pain and bitterness the year had previously held for me. God used my daughter to show that […]

My Wonderful Birthing Experience!

  No I haven’t had the baby yet! Baby is 4 days late and I am getting tired of going to bed every night thinking “by morning I would have had this baby”. Anyway, in God’s time I know I will have this baby very soon. The title is however prophetic as I know this childbirth will be easy. Amen! While waiting for this baby I have read lots of stories about childbirth experiences; women who had bad experiences because of lousy hospital personnel, some had babies at home (because baby came very fast!), some had planned home births with […]
