Oh Mine, I have not blogged in forever! What happened here? It's called life, people. Lately, I can barely get any sleep after working 12 long hours. I used to not mind it so much but after Kyle, no way! It kinda sucks to be going back and forth and trying to pretend I care about a non-compliant diabetic when I'm thinking about my baby at home! I hope I rediscover my passion to provide amazing service to people especially this Christmas season.

Talk of Christmas, may your Christmas be filled with love, peace and hope and may the coming year bring you much appreciation for years past and give you a new enthusiasm to live life to the glory of God!

This is going to be our first Christmas as a little family and I'm excited about it. I usually don't do much to celebrate except do church and focus on Christ's birth and it's significance. I do want Kyle to experience the true meaning of Christmas and not emphasise the commercial aspect of it. I struggle a little with obliterating the whole idea of Santa Claus 'cos I don't want him to grow up being the one weird kid in class who tries to convince the other kids that Santa really is daddy in disguise!(or mummy in some cases). Oh well, he'll survive it. I did! haha

We are celebrating milestones for Mr K. and he is already changed so much since birth! God is just amazing! Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year to you all!

life going on

You know how everyone thinks they have the best mum in the world? Well believe it or not, mine is the very best! Now before you snicker, make a face and stick your tongue out, remember this blog is mine so you are reading my thoughts and opinions( sticks my tongue out). So mama left on the second for Ghana after being with me for a while. You see, they say you never know what you've got until its gone and I have never really had to live this saying until now. I wish I knew how to clone! Brings tears to my eyes anytime I think about how she mothered me through the last weeks of pregnancy until she left

Anyways, my Kyle is 3 months already and he is awesome! What a blessing he is to us. I could be having a terrible day but a simple smile from him makes it all better. Someday, I will explain what seeing Kyle smile does to my heart.

Blessimgs all mine...

This year's Thanksgiving feels extra special 'cos I have my hubby,baby and mummy with me. I have never really done much for Thanksgiving except go visit whichever family wanted to host us and this year is no different.Sometimes I feel like I need to put more effort into the day than I do but gratitude is all that I feel all day long.

I am thankful for all my blessings even those that are disguised as trials. Sometimes we are so busy focusing on the negative things happening in our lives that we forget all the good that have come our way. It is almost as if the few bad times erase all traces of good and then we tend to zoom in on that little bit of negative energy. The shadows will almost always make the figures lurking in the dark seem ginormous but be rest assured that in the truth of God's light, you will be able to see every situation at its regular size and your God will always be bigger than your problems combined.

May His grace be sufficient for you as your heart is filled with gratitude this Thanksgiving. May we continue to have many reasons to be thankful always! Happy Thanksgiving!

Back Then

As my story goes, it seemed I had seen my fair share of pain and disappointment but life had to go on. Come January 6 2010, I had another positive pregnancy test. I was apprehensive of this result. I took maybe a million more after that just to be sure it was right. All the subsequent ones were quite positive. "Darn it, here we go again", I thought. On January 19, 2010, I had my first OB appointment and my doctor figured I was probably 5 weeks along. On February 15, 2010 my heart absolutely sunk as we were told at the appointment that we are possibly going to lose this baby too. No kidding! Can you imagine being all excited about something only to find out you are not going to have the very thing you crave after all.

In my journal, my husband made this entry: Today we found out we are possibly losing our baby. It is sad but we are assured God is in control. How does one prepare for the worst and hope for the best at the same time. It is enough to give anyone a broken heart and mine was completely shattered into pieces. I didn't want to utter the words that I was done with wanting to have a baby but I thought about it all the time. Why put myself through such an ordeal again? To me it was all pointless! At this point, I had pretty much given up but still tried to hold on to hope. I'm telling you a little bit of hope is all that's needed sometimes.

The physical and emotional pain of a miscarriage can not really be compared to anything else. It left me completely broken and my emotions were just raw. Everything made me cry! The worst part was returning to work where there were other pregos!

mama, my friend and confidant

She's prayed with me in the wee hours of the night
She's hugged me and wiped my tears
She's given me advice and spoken words of wisdom
Her faith has carried me through
Her beliefs have challenged mine
Her life has been a living example to me
Oh mother of mine who feels my pain
Mother dearest who weeps and griefs with me
Mother who's empathy is beyond my understanding
May all who have an encounter with you
Know the love you give without reservation
May those who have none get to know mine
I pray for love as deep and passionate as yours for my child

I will never return to this place
My place of solitude and comfort
I have found a new place
It may not be as familiar
But it has become my home
My new normal
Forged out of necessity
Carved after much thought
This life is completely changed forever
That's the beauty of it though
This consistency in change

life and milestones

I just realized it is actually my birthday today. I always look forward to this day with much anticipation and reflection. Today, all I could think about was the fact that a month ago (28 days to be exact), God granted me the joy of experiencing childbirth. It is quite profound and I can not explain the amount of love that fills my heart when I look at my son.

I don't think anyone has ever made me want to just give all I have to make them happy in just a month. It made me wonder if that's how it is with God's love. So full and completely unmerited. I am humbled by the lessons I am being taught. How patient God must be! I am beginning to understand what it means to be long suffering.

Lord grant me the grace to accept the blessings you bestow on me, to be patient with the lessons you are teaching me, to utterly trust in Your plans for my life and help me to live in Your will.

My desire

I'm sitting here contemplating on whether to let you in on the rest of my story or not. In a way, I feel like it might be leaving my emotions too raw but it is my therapy and my way of articulating what I'm going through.

So as the rest of it goes. We were super excited about this pregnancy even though it was not exactly planned. After all, we had been married 2 years now. In our African culture you're expected to have a baby 9 months after the nuptials!

Two days later, I started bleeding a little and then it turned into heavy and heavier bleeding still. I was so scared I thought I would go crazy. I drove myself to the ER and was told I was going through a miscarriage. Darn it! "Why me?". I held my composure while sitting in the ER and I had never felt so alone in my entire life! Hospitals are some of the most lonesome places in the world and without family present, it's even worst. I called my husband to let him know what was happening and he came over to be with me.

Now you might wonder if I never felt the presence of God enfolding me with warmth in that moment. All I did was focus on the sadness and the pain I was feeling in that instant. I wish I had known then what I do know now; that he knows my name, He knows my every thought, He sees each tear that falls and hears me when I call.

Say what? Circa JULY 2009

I am about to take you on a very personal journey. It might be difficult to read my blog from today forward but i hope and pray that it will be a great source of encouragement and upliftment for you. Come with me to way back in 2009 ...

July 10, 2009
No I am not! Really? Oh my God! Well I stopped taking it back in January! Oh my goodness. That is so precious!

Yes, this was me this afternoon at the clinic I volunteer at after I found out that yes indeed, I am preggers! I have done several pregnancy tests on other women and if any of those test had a deep line and a faint one as bold as mine, I definitely would have concluded that they were pregnant so why was I doubting mine? I had another nurse check with me just to be sure! I mean it's not like we have not been trying. Oh trust me, we have!

For some reason, I expected to know the exact moment of the conception of my sweet pea. We had been talking about babies so much lately that God must have decided we were ready! ahaha... Wow, I am still so excited I just want to do cartwheels. I told Thomas that today and he goes "is that safe for the baby?" Dork! uhm, before baby, I was, is and still AM!... You should have seen his face. He looked like he had just had a great meal or received his dream job offer! So cute!

When I found out, I could not contain it. I felt like I was going to burst. I had tears in my eyes, I could not keep my voice down. I walked around with a bounce and a spring in my step. My baby! A part of me! A person consisting of a part of Thomas and I! I had to tell him even though I knew he would not be able to concentrate at work. So I went to the volunteer common room, took my phone out of my bag and started dialing. First try, no answer, second try:

Tomeister: Hello(in an almost whisper meaning Tomtom is in a meeting). Hey sweetie, Is everything ok, I figured if you were calling for the second time something must be up
Me: Guess what? Uhm, the test was super positive!
Tomeister: What test
Me: The pregnancy test
Tomeister: Oh really? wow, it's as if we knew before though didn't we? wow, I want to come home.
Me: hahaha... I'm at the clinic anyways so will see you later at home. I love you honey
Tomeister: I am so excited I can not go back and concentrate. OK will see you soon. Love you!

I know I was not all mushy about it but inside, I'm telling you I was ready to burst! The rest of the day went by in a blur. We went to Barnes and Noble to get a pregnancy book and then I got a pregnancy journal! I am chronicling every bit of this experience as much as I can. Thank You Lord for this Blessing, thank you for my sweet little pea. Oh Thomas said something very thoughtful tonight. He said " Now I am a Man! I have been walking around in this sort of boy-man state but today, I feel like a man". I love this man, a lot!

learners block...

I am learning
I have learned
I will be learning
Currently, I am learning!

I know not everything
I know a lot of things
Some things I have stored away
A few things tucked in my memory

I am learning
Deciphering the very nature
Of things known and unknown
Learning to accept and reject

You're teaching me
Imparting wisdom and knowledge
Of things I thought I knew
Like a sponge I'm absorbing it all anew

The road to motherhood

I am well on my way and there's a lot to pack for this trip; or so I have been told. There are all kinds of books, advice from people from all manners of life but of course as usual, it is a customized trip and mine might be different from the next person's even though the experience might be similar. I've had mixed feelings ranging from happy to downright depressed but through it all, I've learned to take each day at a time.

So yes, I am on the the road to motherhood. My destination might be expected or unexpected and mine, what a wonderful delight that would be! We will find out in about 4-7 weeks! Oh how the time flies! Truth be told, it scares me at times but if God has entrusted me with this then I am willing to learn and do my best.

must have a had a big lunch! hehe

ps: I just realized that parenthood is a perfectly great way to ruin or build a persons life from scratch!

She walks around like a ghostly figure
Wishing for her own demise
No desire to live her life to the fullest
As if it was by mistake that she happened upon this earth

She pushes her life to the limit
Wishing death to claim her if he may
But even that request falls on deaf ears
For death has no claim over her life

What makes such a person lose all hope
To cease to exist in this lifetime
If only I could take a peak into her brain
Perhaps I might gain some understanding

Likely a vague insight into her being
A fleeting wish to live, maybe
For now I'll treat her with empathy
This shadowy figure might retreat no more

My Joy is Crank!

Who are these people
These self made gods
The so called authority in their fields
Laughable miniature gods

Who gave them this power
To make these utterances
As if they came into being by their will
Annoying know it alls

What I hear makes me cringe
What they say render me almost faithless
But I've been there and through that
These creatures haven't experienced my joy

Look by sight and it is overwhelming
The darkness engulfing my very being
Look by faith and all is calm
The Sun warming my very core

Status Posts

I was going through my facebook news feed the other day and liking and smiling or laughing out loud at which ever hilarious ones caught my attention and then it dawned on me "many of these people have very inspirational status updates!". Just the other day I went through these updates again and realized that people are quick to update when whatever they have read that morning be it on or what other website is perceived to be for their neighbor and not them! For instance, one such update read "Gossip ends at a wise person's ear". Now you can be sure a great number of people had this update forgetting that if they themselves do not gossip others will not bring it to their doorstep!

I wonder why people don't include the updates which talk about reaching out and witnessing to others or living in such a way that your life becomes a living testimony of God's grace. Just a thought :-)

Forget Me Not

I began to wallow in this deep dark feeling
I blamed, I cursed, I saw no end
No silver lining, no light at the end of the tunnel
If it was there, I sure was missing it
Probably because I was wallowing in this deep dark feeling

I always thought I was one to come out of it
Unscathed or perhaps with a few scars to show
I didn't think I would be the walking advertisement,
The very poster child of this ingratitude
An ingrate in the making, as if nothing good had ever happened to me

I felt overtaken, overshadowed by my unbelief
Then I begun to see a glimmer of hope
Out of the darkness came my light
Aha! what a little hopeful thought can do
My heart felt free from and my spirit begun to soar

Again I begun to remember all that He said;
I will never leave you nor forsake you
Do not be consumed by anxiety
Each day has enough worry of it's own
Baby steps, one day at a time

Now I am not wallowing
There are days when those fleeting thoughts intrude
There are sunny days dotted with clouds overhead
But I will not wallow in that place
I am not alone, He's there and He's not going away!

Stuck On You

I must confess that I am going through a period of writer's block again. I have run out of things to share with my readers and it really bothers me to no end :-? Sorry folks! I think my problem is that I do not want to disappoint myself with mediocre and offensive writing. Anybody going through a moment like this?

The past week was pretty depressing for me and I finally fell completely apart a couple days ago after talking to my dad. He is absolutely the sweetest person and he always speaks encouraging and affirmative words to me. It made me sad to look at people's photos and see them together with their families. A part of me longed for that period in my life when my whole family was together and the nostalgia just overwhelmed me.

I feel a lot better now but as I wistfully wished for better family connections, it made me realize that I missed being in close proximity to my "friends" as well. Distance and different experiences have drawn some of us apart but if you have been a friend to me in the past or presently, thank you! It does mean the world to me :) Have a great week y'all!

On track, off track
Somewhere in between
Choices, engagements
Plans to be made
Decisions arrived at without much thought
Right ones, wrong ones
The die is cast
Any more options?
How will events proceed?
I know not, but I can not
Forget who's in it with me
Never alone, anxiety relieved
Standing here in and on His promises

My Ransom

In Christ alone, who took on flesh, fullness of God in helpless Babe!This gift of love and righteousness, scorned by the ones He came to save.‘Til on the cross as Jesus died, the wrath of God was satisfied.For ev’ry sin on Him was laid; here in the death of Christ I live.

It's that time of the year again and I am remembering the turmoil that Christ must have endured inwardly in coming to the decision to die for my ransom. It gets me every time I think about it. This single act in history holds so much mystery to it and I am drawn to it like a moth to a flame! Thank you Jesus for dying in my place. Thank you that the chastisement that brought me peace was laid upon you!

Easter is not about candy :p Have a reflective weekend on the sweetness of His grace!

gossip, kokonsa, chisme ...

... Gossip is an evil thing, much unhappiness it brings. If you can't say something nice, don't talk at all is my advice ... (Not sure who the original author is)

I learned the words of this chorus back in Junior high and I still remember it to this day. It really changed my outlook on a lot of so called "discussions". One of my friend's status on facebook the other day was "if you stay long enough to hear negative and malicious things about someone, what makes you think the same won't be going on behind you?

I don't want to focus on the malicious aspect of gossip alone. I realize that by making the previous statement it implies that some aspect of gossip is good. Is that true at all? Does it mean then that if what is being said is "nice", then it is alright? Hmmm, just wondering.

stuff that drive me nuts!

The week has just begun and already I feel like the weight of the world is resting on my tiny shoulders. I am not going through anything per se but I have just heard bad news from a couple friends, some random strangers and sometimes you can't help but share in the burden of others. But again, I refuse to let that keep me from screaming and shouting "Thank You, Jesus" for your loving kindness and for your steadfast love!

I am once again reminded of God's love just as the Psalmist(David) wrote in Psalm 124. I suppose at times it is very difficult to accept what is and continue to give thanks as well but how soon we forget about all the other good things that have come our way. Some of us have developed a complex because we think we are entitled to "good-ness" in life and others deserve what they get. Who the heck are we to think that way?

I pray each of us will be reminded of God's grace through this week when we are tempted to lament and cuss under our breadth when we feel like life has been unfair in one way or the other. God Bless!

I have been pondering over Psalm 23 today and thought about the content of this email that circulated a while ago and figured I would share with y'all.


The Lord is my Shepherd ~ Relationship

I shall not want ~ Provision

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures ~ Comfort

He leadeth me beside still waters ~ Peace

He restoreth my soul ~ Healing

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness ~ Guidance

For His name sake ~ Purpose

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death ~ Trials & Testing

I will fear no evil ~ Protection

For thou art with me ~ Faithfulness

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me ~ Assurance

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies ~ Deliverance

Thou anointest my head with oil ~ Consecration

My cup runneth over ~ Abundance

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life ~ Grace

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord ~ Security

Forever ~ Eternity

Can you imagine sitting in the presence of your enemies while enjoying a good meal in comfort? I think the Psalmist painted this vivid picture to depict God's providence and also his(David's) trust in the promises of God that He would be with Him no matter what. It gives me such great peace to know that such an awesome God cares for me!

I got this award a little while ago from prettykay (Thanks girl!) and I guess I missed passing it on. If you're reading this you're tagged. The rule is to say 7 things about yourself which I think I have done in two previous posts but I could do it again :-)

1. I'm a great wife if I do say so myself. (You better agree Honey!) hehe
2. I am also a girly girl and make no apologies for it. (Yeah I love pinks, purples, blues, shoes, getting my hair did, make-up, dresses, shopping etc). Why would I deny I'm a girl? ha!
3. People always guess I'm between 18-23! Very fluttering!
4.I love life!
5. I wish I were more passionate about my faith than people see. I love Jesus with a passion and I am unapologetically christian!
6. I love being a nurse but I'm not sure if I love my current job
7. I believe I am meant for greatness and I am still in the process of letting that manifest in my life :-)

shoppers paradise

So I went shopping the other day for long spring-y/summer-y dresses and came across a very pretty grayish/pewter/ash colored dress that caught my eye right away. For some unknown reason, I always look at the tag to see where it is made and before even checking out the fabric care. We all know it sucks to buy that dress which requires dry cleaning when you have no intention of dry cleaning it.

Anyways, imagine my surprise when I realized the dress was made in (drum rolls please...) KENYA! I wanted to scream "I am African and this dress right here is from my continent, y'all. Booyah". I know that's a little extreme but can you imagine going into a shop like Charming Charlie and finding a dress made in Kenya? It just made my entire day! I'll be sure to put a photo up when I wear! Looking forward to the day when I find made in Ghana stuff being sold commercially in American shops. Now that will be epic!

What is the ratio?

Today as I waited to give report before leaving work, a certain someone showed up lamenting about budget cuts and how Teachers are losing their jobs. I was very sad and a little amused at the same time. I think Teachers deserve better and should not have to lose their jobs in order for someone's budget quota to be met but the thing is, a lot of people suffer this kind of injustice in their owrk place day in and day out.

The said person kept going on and on about how they want teachers to teach a class of 60 kids! Now I had to pause and munch on this for a minute because growing up, some of my classes were bigger than 60 and some of theses folks from these classess of 60 are some of the most brilliant people I have ever met. She went on to talk about how the level of education will drop etc. Maybe the so called developed countries can learn a thing or two from the "developing" countries when it comes to what makes these huge classes work. Perhaps because of the large sizes, no one has the time to lable us as bipolar, ADD, ADHD and whatever alphabets there are and so we are saved from the stigma at such an early age.

I have not conducted any research into how the student teacher ratio affects the learning habits or the intellect of young minds yet but if all humans are considered "almost" equal, then dear readers, as a person from the so called "developing" country, I have been done a great disservice and my education has surely been in vain. Maybe it did teach me to pay better attention in class so that I would not be lost in the crowd. Perhaps it did teach me a thing or two about disciplining myself and holding myself to a certain standard so that I do not fall into the bottom third or two thirds of the class.

I am not saying that the workload is easy or that it is justifiable to put these teachers in these situations. I am just peeved that anyone can suggest that a teachers ability to motivate or encourage students to learn will diminish depending on the class size. Oh well, once again, my opinion ;p

So I suppose I'm not the only one that snoozed through the Oscars this year. I must say I was very excited and looking forward to it especially after seeing Hugh Jackman's presentation two years before and even though I didn't care much about the Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin combo, I hoped this year will be much more exciting. I was even more excited after seeing the opening video and Anne Hathaway was awesome but what happened to James Franco?

It was as if someone hit the snooze button on him. He just seemed a little out of it if you ask me. Maybe the tension of being a nominee got to him and the whole pink dress thing just did not do it for me. Now I'm not saying he did not do a good job. He did somewhat of an OK job but he was a real let down and I felt bad for Anne Hathaway because it seemed like she ended up bearing the weight of hosting and making things lively all on her own. Grrr...

Anyways, why do I even care? I just know that I would be mad if someone let me down like that but then again, it's all a matter of opinion and that's my take : D... and I want Mila Kunis' dress too!

Oh before I forget, I have some exciting news for the blog soon. Might be like another month yet for the prep but look forward to it. Have a blessed week y'all!

love machine

Happy Love Day, Y'all! I hope you all have beautiful surprises from beginning to end but don't let the loving stop there. I hope you all experience what it feels like to love and be loved. Words from the Boo this morning :

"I love you, I love this journey we are on simply because it is you I am travelling with. I love how you challenge me and how easily I am able to be myself with you. I love you always."

Now how am I supposed to keep from being in love with a love machine like that. He spews these lyrics every so often too! I tell you love turns the everyday man into a poet! ha!

It is

Some have prepared for it
Others have struggled with it
A few are dealing with it
Yet still many are oblivious to it
I have chosen to embrace it
Full on with no regrets to it
If I am going to live it
Then I purposefully will love it
This is my lifetime isn't it...
I will live every bit of it

Monday, January 24, 2011


I know a couple who struggled for 8 years to have a baby and I also know of another who got pregnant 3 months into their marriage without much planning at all. Now I know that each of these parents are very excited about their baby and they show them off proudly to family and friends. I have been wondering if the level of love for each is different though. After all the first couple had to struggle for 8 years. I can imagine the stress, the uncertainty and possible ridicule whether obvious or not, that they had to endure.

Does that mean the second couple love their baby any less? They might have had to process the implication of having a child right after getting married and the implication of that on their newly established home. Would that put a strain on their marriage and as such on their relationship with their child?

I guess in essence, I am trying to figure out if the amount of love, care and attention given to each child is affected by the circumstances or the environment of the parent prior to their birth. Just wondering :)

Zodiac Schmoziac

Who cares about horoscope? Seriously, I had no idea people were that into their horoscopes and the bearing of that on their lives. I didn't even know what zodiac sign I was until maybe Junior high or senior high. After I found out it did not change my perspective on life or what path my life was going to take. How does this have any bearing on my existence or what what I do with my life?

If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can check this out. Apparently the Zodiac signs based on the constellations is changing and a thirteenth might be added because the position of the sun is no longer in the same spot it used to be when the signs were made. Hmm.. does that mean that if the earth's axis has shifted and Ghana is in the spot Korea used to be it makes me Korean now? I think it is kind of silly really. Talk about the influence of suggestion. So I am no longer a Libra but a Virgo. Uhm... big deal! (Shake my head).

People are always seeking individuality but I guess deep down we really want that sense of belonging. Why else would anyone get mad because their personality no longer fits into one of 12 categories created. Oops sorry I guess you can not be Miss World now because you're no longer a Virgo? Be careful out there today people. The world is in an identity crises!

We're In

Another year has begun and people are making new year's resolutions and beating themselves over the head for failing on last year's. I stopped making resolutions in 2009... I think. I am not sure if that is exactly a bad idea. For some, it gives the inspiration to accomplish goals and aim higher but for me, I have simply chosen to live in the moment. I simply want to thank God for allowing me to make it into another year. He must trust me with His time so I am going to try to live in the moment and enjoy it. That in itself is a resolution I suppose.

I am working on adding a fashion segment to this blog. If that is possible, I will let you know. I hope everyone is having a great year so far. Happy New Year! God Bless! God speed! Be resolute in your resolution :)
