Build a support system

There’s nothing like having people who can help you make life less overwhelming You honestly can’t do it all yourself We all need help There’s no need to get caught up in the ‘I can do it myself or no one can do it better than me‘ bubble. Burst that bubble, throw that thought away…

Don’t forget to be a child

As adults, it’s so easy to get carried away with ‘adulting’ that we forget to have fun. Last weekend, my sisters and I decided to take to be children again. We took the children to the playground and decided to join in the fun – two-legged race, egg and spoon race, sack race. It felt…

Childhood memories

My mum loved to bake and cook and she didn’t leave us on these. Once we were old enough to understand what was going on, we were in the kitchen with her. She had a few cook books, a treasure filled with some delightful recipes. I remember our cupcake 🧁 baking days, always a delight…

Speaking nicely to people

Speaking nicely to people is easy but then it doesn’t come easy to everyone I have observed that how people speak to others is based on how they were raised* It’s important to me and I am working on this with my children, as it’s best when they get it  while they are young If…

Mirror! Mirror!

I love watching my children play, listening to them talk… They are the best of friends most times, they have each other’s backs. You should see them defending each other to outsiders, it is hilarious. The other day, they were talking about marriage and how they cannot marry each other (they are 4 and 6)……

Hug someone today

I am not a hugger. I observe people first and then when we get to know each other better, then I can start hugging you. This is as a result of how I was raised, my parents are not huggers. Does this mean they love us less than those whose parents always hugged and told…

A heart of gratitude

We have a family tradition of going to my grandmothers’ on Good Friday. We all gather to celebrate what Christ did for us so many years ago. We give thanks for He paid the ultimate sacrifice. “Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!” ‭‭ – 2 Corinthians‬ ‭9:15‬ ESV Each year, we are able to look…

Fun memories of a great man

Alexander Kwamina Sagoe (AKS) – my maternal grandpa was a great man. My sisters and I loved spending time with him. From as far back as I can remember, my parents dropped us off at our grandparents quite often. Grandma was a nurse, so she wasn’t always home and so Grandpa spoiled us rotten. We…
