What a week!


I can finally write some words on my blog. What a week it has been but I thank the Lord that I am still here and I am still standing. The experiment didn't work the way it was supposed to but I thank God anyway as I am still here to repeat it.

How is everyone, i must thank you all for your comments on my last post. Reading it makes perfect sense and I'm glad I'm free.

Happy Birthday Mummy, when you read this I want you to smile because you are more beautiful everyday. I always remember how you smile when people ask if we are sisters but we are more than that, we are best friends. I thank God everyday that you are my mother, my 'paddy', my business partner, my prayer partner, my tutor and also my student. I love the fact that you can ask me questions, that you are not the sort of parent who 'knows it all'. I love the fact that we can discuss anything and even though we 'fight' we try to be fair (ha, ha).

I love the way we have 'names' for everyone and we can laugh until tears fall from our eyes. I know it isn't always easy with the MC but i love that you share about it even though I know I'm not always a good listener. I love the way you say it as it is (call a spade a spade and not a garden fork!) whether it's what I want to hear or not. I love the way you dance to my music when I'm playing stuff in my room(well, really your music since I love music from way back!)

As I grow older, I find out how much like you I am..the only thing I don't like are the fingernails (LOL!) but I thank God for the mother that I have. Truly as the Bible says you and your children are for signs and wonders.

Have a great birthday today..i wish I could celebrate it with you but here's a million kisses from London to Lagos via Virgin Nigeria (hope say e go reach there o) mwah. Love ya!

Me (don't want to write what you call me, they may think I've gone loco!!!!)

awww... Happy Birthday to your mom.

I cant lie, i feel a pang of jealousy since my mom and i are not close. And mind you i am her only girl.

My sis, commit it to the Lord in prayer..i and mummy had our fights for many years because we are so alike but now we are close. There is nothing the Lord cannot do. I always thought only girls were naturally really close to their mothers but I know some families where it is not the case. Truly, it makes me a bit sad.
Don't worry about it just know that God can do anything including helping you have a deeper relationship with your mum. However, some girls are just naturally closer to their dads.

Happy belated birthday to mummy believer. mummy you will never believer how she is making us look like underachievers with all she does and how she is on fire for God. Sometimes I wonder arnt we serving the same God, as she is continually making a show of me, causing me to always up my game. But indeed she is a delight and a daughter to be proud of. She is indeed a credit to you, and because you have raised her well, God will continue to bless the work of your hands, and will never find you wanting.

May this birthday mark the continuation of great and wonderful things that God has started in your life, and may His favour never leave you, for you are indeed a daughter of the most high God. Stay blessed and well, and again happy belated birthday.
