I AM BETTER NOW

“Oh, I wish I had been told that I could never do it all by myself.”

“Oh, I wish I had been told that I could never do it all by myself.”

“I wish someone had held the placard so high with words so clear for me to read.”

“I would never have gone through the pain and rejection. I would have set a better example, I would have done better by the children.” Roselyn lamented.

Hers had been a hard experience seeing that she was a single mother with the need to nurture yet provide for her household. Looking back, she wonders how she did not realise that many were willing to help her but feared to make her feel insecure or inadequate.

Hers had been an arduous experience seeing that she was a single mother with the need to nurture yet provide for her young household. Looking back, she wonders how she did not realise that many were willing to help her but feared to make her feel insecure or inadequate.

Speaking to fellow single mothers, she had this to say;

“Parenting, so I have come to learn is team work.

It doesn’t matter if you are a single parent or not. We all have a support group that if we chose to reach out would have our backs. It’s that Sunday school teacher, that University friend, your pastor and more.

Reaching out makes parenting easier, fun, and rewarding. I wish I had known this 15 years ago!”

WASTED GET-AWAY

After a long week at work, the least I could be accorded was a peaceful weekend. Packed with loads of rest and me-time away from the children. However, someone out there had something else in mind; robbing a bank.

Instead of silence and peace, it was sirens from Police cars and surveillance helicopters in search of this now-turned fugitive.

Looking through the hotel window, I was sad that in a few hours I had to head home feeling worse than I was when I reached here.

PARENTING RIGHT

As a parent, make it a point to horn a special place in your child’s life. You can not do it forcefully. It is done with gentleness, love, patience, love suffering yet not forgetting discipline.

I am not telling you to applaud your little one when they mess up, to look on as they become a nuisance, that will make them resent you in future. I am asking you to engage in all-round parenting; an applause for good work and a rebuke for wrong behaviour.

Trust me, you will be an angel to your child.

HIS LOVE

Love has been termed as complicated, a subject that leaves many confused. But it does not have to be that way.

I found a love that was there before I called out for it. A love that evolved me once I embraced it. It is my Savior’s love. It is unconditional, it’s not tainted and yet it’s renewing.

Because of it, I have changed the way I look at others, I have learned to appreciate more. I have learned to accept others. If He loved me in my mess, then why not love those that society looks at as unloveable.

This love, it is amazing love. Nothing complicated, nothing confused. Just pure and amazing. John 3:16

TEACH BY EXAMPLE

Many parents in my country claim that they can not apologise to a child. But then, how do you expect them to learn how to be repentant when you have shown no remorse upon wronging them?

Why then would surprise you when the teachers or nannies complain about their thoughtless behaviour?

They learn by example, so what you show them is what they will carry as the norm.

Charity begins at home, nurture them right.

LEAVE THEM BEHIND

When you walked out of that relationship, you did carry one or two ghosts with you. I do not know why you did, I guess that’s a topic for another day.

How I wish you had stopped by the dumpster and gotten rid of them, but you did not. You graciously walked into the next relationship with them.

Now you complain about him being like your ex, yet you do not care about the baggage you carried with you.

Did you stop to consider that maybe you are the problem? That you are looking at Devon through Clarence’s faults!!

If you ever want a healthy relationship, take the time to detox yourself of the pains of the last one. Do not use your next partner as a punching bag, one to help you get rid of the pain that the last one caused you.

Leave that ghost where it out to be; in the past and never revisit it. Then carry you, clean and new into the future to enjoy what the Father has in store for you.

Enjoy your life!!

BE A LIGHT UNTO THEM

kids-playing

Your children or the children in the neighbourhood look up to you as an adult. They hope to learn and are eager to impress you. Do not disappoint them. Nurture them instead of being a predator. Do not make them lose their hope in adults or the human race on a whole.

You have the responsibility to help them be better regardless of the fact that you are not their parent.

Happy parenting
