    GP’s Waiting Area

    As I sat in the waiting room patiently waiting for our turn, I was praying that she wouldn’t be a noisemaker! Everyone hates a noisemaker!! I looked around the room and we were all women, except one man sitting in the corner with his wife (I saw their wedding bands, well actually the rings were looking at me). The waiting area was loud and the noisemakers were on full swing, runny noses on show and the beep sound that made your heart jump for joy just for a second as you thought it was your name being called, only to realise as your brain quickly made the connection it wasn’t…

    A Mother’s Thanks (2012)

              Where do I even begin! Well thanking you seems like a good start! So…thank you from the bottom of my heart! I thank God for your life because I’m not sure where I would be without you! Special thanks to my mum, my Pastors, my sisters, my best friend, group leaders, and my daughter’s godparents. For helping my shame seem slightly more bearable, thank you!

    Umbrella

    Something incredible happened to me on a particular Thursday morning. I had checked the weather forecast before leaving for work and there was a 65% chance of rain! My heart sank, not so much because of the rain, although the rain when mixed with UK travel and mood swings is usually a recipe for disaster. However, I was more upset about the hefty long umbrella I had to log around with me during rush hour! Yes, I’m the girl who doesn’t like to get wet and I certainly won’t put a bag over my head! Newspaper maybe, but 5p plastic carriers bag…no way! I have a bittersweet relationship with my…

    #visionboard

    Can you be selfish for just 2 min? Of corse you can! Just think about yourself and your betterment for 2 min, you owe it to yourself. It is important that you take time to think about your vision, – simply put, your ideas of who you want to be and what you want to do. Vision boards are a brilliant way to get all your ideas, dreams and thoughts onto a paper / board and stick it on your wall/ door/mirror. They’re great for a number of reasons, but in particular – THEY HELP YOU TO VISUALISE HOW GREAT YOU CAN BE & HOW GREAT YOU ARE DESTINED TO BE

    Don’t Quit

    Sometimes it feels like marriages across the world are just in shambles. Seriously, every social media post or even news is discussing some sort of break up, dissolved marriage, messy divorce or spousal #slagmatch. I read a post which said, ‘it’s not that there are so many failed marriages, rather marriages are like planes, you only hear about the ones that crash.’ Hmmmm food for thought indeed. However, marriages are failing and it’s disheartening. But why? I don’t think it’s because fairytales aren’t having their happy endings, but because marriages are key to society and the enemy knows that. Especially if you are of faith, you will understand that successful…

    Intentional Decision Making vs Mercy

      The judge was about to slam His sentence, my head hung low. I was ashamed and still in shock as to what was happening. One minute everything was fine, life was good, I had a job, family, friends etc., and then suddenly…there was sheer chaos and absolute madness everywhere. How did I get here? I had emotions of unbelief, denial and anger! Extreme anger. I quickly realised that dwelling in that state of anger had no benefit to me, or the situation I was about to enter. As the judge began to pronounce judgment, my heart sinking, stomach tightening and tears overwhelming my eyes, a tall man suddenly entered…
