Food Storage

Food Storage

It has been a grueling three weeks. Last month, I cut down on the food budget, and instead used this money for other purposes, assuming I would get paid dues owed to me. Unfortunately, the outstanding debt went unpaid, which meant our normal foods storage was in deficit. I am lucky to have several mama mboga’s who are not only friends, but speak one of my local lingos. I come from mixed parentage, so I play it to my advantage depending on the situation. Where I live, tribe helps in such situations. I can use tribe to… Continue reading →

Reveal your all

Reveal your all

Revelation 21:4 “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” I keep getting back to the mercies bestowed upon us by our Lord. I cannot tire of this. Looking at the sorrows and pains suffered by so many of my married sisters causes me to frequently relive this promise. Mothers beloved the world over, have, do and will cry for their families, due to man’s own doing. Hence our comfort in these words of… Continue reading →

Smother them with love

I must say since my three loves were young, I have always been accused of smothering them with love. In my opinion, I just decided on this style of parenting. I loved my three and gave them the best I could. It really was not much, what with my constant joblessness in between job, separation from baby daddies, and other hardships courtesy lack of keen and proper guidance. Still I prejudge myself as having done well and come out almost tops. If nothing else, my undying, uncompromised and non stop love, understanding, guidance and care… Continue reading →

Yippee!!

Yippee!!

Ooohoo yeah. Sonny is done with Secondary School. Thank you Lord. To quote Maina of the Ndambuki /Kageni fame …” I tell you!” Sonny sat and completed his O level exams. Small wonder, some might comment. But you see; I take nothing concerning my three loves, lightly or for granted. Especially…not Sonny. Also sadly, there are a lot of boy children, who out of fear, misfortune, natural and/or man made calamity or illness etc, failed to sit for at all ,or to complete their exams this year. So I give thanks to Jehovah. I was among… Continue reading →

A Bigger Hug

A Bigger Hug

Sometime back, Churchill King’ang’i and Maina wa Kageni were on about whether or not single women above thirty “kidu”-something- get miserably lonely and need to have a man. As usual I was listening to the first part of this twosome breakfast show, while in the bus on my way to work. King’ang’i was having a good time rubbishing all those single ladies calling in to claim their long and/or new found joyous loneliness, and Maina as usual was adding “kudos’” to those same sisters. Things got heated when the talk got to “pia those over… Continue reading →

Nairobbery

I woke up in a good mood today. I have been feeling so charged up since yesterday. Really charged. A project I had put my all into, came through a winner. So here I was yesterday, beaming with pleasure, hopes for a new love this Christmas forgotten, woes about the problems I have had with the kids this year not remembered again, and all my office annoyances seeming petty and inconsequential. I selected something to wear today, last night. Laid it out, and would have ironed it, if I had not been sooo… tired. Early… Continue reading →
