Coming out..........

I have always had a thing for scribbling my thoughts and stuff like that but the past year has seen a great plummeting in that department. Hopefully i will be more insprired to let it flow. I have never really thought of myself as an ingrate until i stumbled onto
LondonBuki's blog (check out mummy monday). My mum celebrated her birthday a few weeks ago. It was supposed to be a memorable occasion but as usual we got into one of our ugly fights. After reading Buki's blog i realized there was alot i had to work on as a person.

We are only blessed to have 'these' people around for a couple of years......why wait till they die before we celebrate them. Why not make each day count? Granted majority of us are continents away from our folks but that 3 minute phonecall twice a week will help mend whatever fences are jacked up.

I have always been of the opinion that my mum is just out to frustrate me but an incident last month changed my views(more on that later)

My first entry is therefore dedicated to LondonBuki's mum..............Jehovah Rapha our healer will perfect all that concerns you.(Amen)

  • Oh My! Reading this just brought tears to my eyes! Thank you so much. God Bless You!

    Our Mums always want what's best for us and most of the time they frustrate and annoy the life out of us in the process! LOL!!!

    Hope you sort every little thing out with your Mummy.

    And May The Almighty God hear our prayers... AMEN!!!!

    P.S. Welcome to Blogville :-)

  • I also once thought my mum was out to frustrate me, but I have learned to realise that she is out to bless me.

    welcome girl, look forward to your future blogs.

  • welcome to this particular blogger community.

    this was a powerful way to come out, as we're all following Buki's mom's progress through her blog.

    i feel you. much as i love my mom, we don't get along for more than a few moments. i live in fear that she will pass on and i would not have shown her how much i care about her.

  • Welcome to the blogosphere.

    I bet I'm a bit late, neways just my take on mums.. They are frustrating and annoying most times, but we just have to take a chill pill and try to get along with them. God grant us the serenity to get along perfectly with them like we want!
