I Am Just Me. A Unique Me. That Me is Who I Am!

State of Mind When Written: I was having a conversation with a colleague and somehow wondered off into blogs. Then I remembered my old blog and decided to pay it a visit. It was a simple follow up question on an article I directed my colleague to that led me into a discovery I had never thought of. The question was: "how many views did you get on that?" My response, I was clueless and didn't even know I could track it.... Then I logged in, and BAMMM!!


Today, after several years of being both an active & inactive blogger, I finally discovered how great GOOGLE really is! It had been tracking some valuable stats for me that I had never taken the time to appreciate. It tracked how many articles I had posted over the years. The number of comments, the location of most readers. But what fascinated me the most was the number of page viewers, article viewers and profile views that it had tracked.

I discovered that I had 1,641 Profile Views Since December of 2007!!! Are you kidding me??? Did we even have FaceBook and all those cool apps then? And I posted zero articles since 2009 except for 1 in 2014 again. Holy Cow!! And total "PageViews all time history was" - 2,398!! Those numbers MADE MY DAY...:)

The article with the most reads of 406 was "Are relationships overrated?".  Go fish for it.

I'm re-reading some of my own postings too. I guess I was always an Obama Girl! :)

Hey People, Listen!! I'm simply in awe!!

Something in me just got stirred up! It's the creative me!

It's alive again & it's going back to work!

Thank You Google!
Thank You Readers!
Please Come Back Again!

It's Mother's Day, but it's also exactly 1year since Daddy left Us (05/11/2013)!!!

Ahhhhhh!!!!

It's a solemn day.....for me that is!!!
I feel like celebrating, but I can hardly find the strength to. 
She was called Grace & she lived up to her name.
Mama left us far too soon. We barely had a chance to know her.
We have fond childhood memories of her.
I still remember the gentle edges of her beautiful face like fresh cologne.
And the images of her smile and voice re-echo in my head.
Her sudden departure changed our lives forever.
My memories of a mother's hug and love may seem forlorn,
Yet the little I have has stayed with me till this day.
Pieces of her life get offered to us by her friends & family.
I pause to give special thanks to the Sakerettes. 
What an honor to discover the woman she was....
Graceful Grace Bosen Daiga.... Gone but not forgotten!!

But.....
There was Daddy. Ba Daiga!! 
He stepped up like no other man that I know.
He had big shoes to fill and he did the very best he could.
He became Mama & Daddy. Our resource, our life-line.
Though I was young, I could tell the times when 
he was challenged by his dual role. But he braved it.
We used to forage his home office out of pure curiosity 
As though we were on a candy chase.
I discovered books on how to raise your children, parenting guides,
 prayer points on children and family & special notes in his dairy.
Yes, he kept a dairy/journal - detailed ones too....:)
And true confessions, I was naughty, we were. 
(i snooped around).....it's a girl thing. Sometimes I think he 
deliberately left some notes...:) And We thought We were smart?? ...Oh well

Even though we had Daddy around for much longer, he still left too us soon.
The void and emptiness is almost tangible.
The sting of their departures .....
I miss them. I Will Always Love them.
I'm still thanking God for selecting them as my parents, our parents.
They did great! We are braving it too. Standing tall.
We will never forget them. Never....R.I.P
Keep watch over us Private Angels!!

On this day, I say thank you to all The Aunties, 
My many Aunties, My grand-mothers & Friends who made 
it so much easier for us to not feel this void. 
I only hope God grants me more so I can pay it forward.  
May heaven enrich & enlarge your kingdoms.

Happy Mother's Day to All The Women Out There!!

So What if...

Originally written: Nov 03, 08.


What if God couldn't take the time to bless us today because we were unable to take the time to thank Him yesterday?

What if God decided to stop leading us tomorrow because we refused to follow Him today?

What if we never saw another flower blossom because we grumbled when God sent the Rain?

What if God didn't walk with us today because we failed to recognize He had been walking with us all along?

What if God took away the Bible tomorrow because we would not read it today?

What if God took away His message because we failed to listen to the messenger?

THINK ABOUT THIS ONE...

What if God didn't send His only begotten Son because He wanted us to be prepared to pay the price for our own sins.

What if the door of the church was closed because we did not open the doors to our hearts?

What if God stopped loving and caring for us because we failed to love and care for others?

What if God would not hear us today because we did not listen to Him yesterday?

What if God answered our prayers the way we answer His call to service?

What if God met our needs in the equivalent proportion by which we committed our lives to Him?

Just what if? ……

Guess what, we may never have to worry about those what ifs if we only believe that He is The Alpha & The Omega, The All Knowing, The Ever Forgiving, The Merciful & Most High Loving God. We just need to trust and believe in Him more.

My Continent's Promise

What does my continent have in store for me?

If I chose to go back to the motherland today,
what is the promise that my continent has to offer me?
Will I be able to contend myself that there will be a way,
or I will have to make my own way?

Will there be a fair process to make my way,
or I'd have to do holla hoops?

What is that promise?
I want to go back to you motherland!
Show me the promise, so I can plan my way back.
I long to breathe your air, bask in your sun,
till your soils, sow in your grounds and just enjoy it.

My dreams are deeply rooted in your promise.
I can no longer sleep peacefully because they must
be accomplished. My dreams are now a burden I
must unload off my shoulders. Many are waiting to benefit.
Oh motherland, make a way for my return a pleasant one.

You would be happy when the dreams come to live!
Oh I know you would be proud.
Dear Motherland, pave the way and make it happen.....soon!

My Pain - Our Pain for Daddy

My Ailing Daddy

Oh Dear Daddy, I go to bed every night with your pain buried deep within me. How can I not feel your pain? I worry everyday. I pray for you day in an out, that you will get better. Oh Daddy! I've cried many a nights....cried till I became strong again.

I miss not hearing your voice. The sound of your laughter or your smile! I just miss hearing that sound. But I’ll be by your side soon. Life placed a gazillion of obstacles in our path. But little by little, we are making our way through if Dad. Please hang in there Daddy! I promise you, it will be better. We will make certain of that.

I whisper that promise…… and I know you heard me!

Love you Dad! We all love you so much!
