No Man is an Island

Authentic Support System So the day finally came. September 20, 2020. We didn't know this would be the date but we knew that someday soon my sister and her family would leave for their home country. It would be great for them, but we knew we would miss them a lot. It's a blessing when cousins are like siblings and their home becomes your second home. To have someone in the other family who makes my little Micah act like a responsible adult, and another who makes Anna feel she has not just a sister, but a twin - you have to be grateful. I've come to realize that with what I describe...

Pencil Tip

MY CUTIE HURT HERSELF On September 10, 2020, Anna unintentionally drove a pencil tip into her finger. She was using a mechanical pencil and had pushed out too much lead. The incident happened when she tried to push the excess back into the holder. I tried to remove it but only succeeded in taking out a tiny portion. I could feel the hard piece but it was lodged in a way that the tweezers couldn't reach it. We flushed with water, treated with methylated spirit, and took a break. It hurt every time she put pressure on it, especially when she tried to write. My husband talked about the possibility of an incision at...

How to Conduct a Training Session on WhatsApp

The Notice Learning is always fun and this past week, I had an interesting opportunity to do just that as I was invited to mentor a group of about 120 people on WhatsApp. It's a relationship hub but for some reason they wanted to hear about money, business and investments and they chose me because they saw my thought provoking video with the title - What if you don't get a job. Timothy Inyang came up with the idea and did an excellent job bringing it to life. He informed me about the session a few hours before it was to begin so I quickly gathered my thoughts on what to share with them. [caption...

Bugs for Dollars

I must write about this. You'll see why. My youngest, Micah, is a very interesting child. He makes us laugh a lot - things he says, his reasoning, and some of his actions. A few days back, I heard him yell at Nathan, so I called them to find out what the problem was. Turns out Micah saw a bug near his online school setup in the parlor and asked Nathan to help him kill it. Nathan refused, maintaining that everyone should face their fears. He had a point. So, I asked Micah to go and kill the bug or avoid it. He didn't like the verdict, so he started crying. My husband went...

Easter

Terrible things happened to Jesus on that day but we call it Good Friday. That’s because the focus is on the result, the outcome of all He suffered. He was arrested/imprisoned - I have liberty He was scourged - By those stripes, I am healed He was punished - I have peace He became a curse by hanging on the tree - Every curse is broken in my life He was rejected - I am accepted into God’s family He died - I have eternal life There’s so much more. I can’t tell it all. Words are not enough. What a beautiful exchange. He took my pain, my sin, my guilt, my shame, my...

Rome

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but these days it seems we all want to do just that or better - how about building it in a minute? Like Mister Maker. Ambition is good but every now and then, I see the need to calm down, assess the situation and push some things out into the future. Guess what!!! There’s something called TOMORROW 💃💃🕺🏼🕺🏼and you probably will still be here then. So why kill yourself prematurely by trying to get too many things done TODAY? Notice I said ‘too many’. MANY is fine but TOO MANY isn’t. And our bodies and other indicators signal us when we’re getting to TOO MANY. A good indicator for...

Co-Pilot

He almost got us killed… but a lesson from my dad saved the day. Here’s the story. I remember my father for many reasons but today I’ll speak of only one. He taught me a valuable lesson that has saved my life on more than one occasion. He said, ‘whenever you sit beside the driver of a vehicle, you must assume the responsibility of a co-pilot’. He said there are hazards along the way that drivers may miss and as co-pilot, you have to timely and calmly bring it to their notice. So, even if every other passenger goes to sleep, you must not. I took that to heart and even on road journeys...
