LETTER TO MY BELOVED MOTHER

MUM 1MUM 2

 

Dear Mom,

Words can’t express how grateful I am for you,

The love you have expressed to us when sick is immeasurable, when caring for the pets all this, you do with deeming joy, giving us pocket.

The sacrifice that you have rendered to us for example visiting us at school, making sure all of us have taken breakfast in the morning, all this I don’t take for granted.

Like a therapist you counsel us when wrong we look forward to your amazing advice.

The care, with this I can say nobody does it better than you do. You will get all that you have to make sure that the visitors are well catered for as well as carrying sweets for the grandchildren.

The hard work you put in from going to the farm, to shopping on Saturday, to supervising builders, this we emulate you.

The calm demeanor that you hold, with this kind of trait, even when the valleys are low you know you will go through it because mom takes each situation calmly it as it goes.

The laughter it is something that is inborn, everyone around you will fill it in the room and this you has passed it on to the grandchildren.

I can go on and on Mum, thank you for being the strong pillar in our family that holds us together for you we are forever grateful.

From all of us your children, grandchildren, in-laws, friends and family I would love to wish you a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.

STRENGTH IN THE MIDST OF HARD TIMES

There are times when you are troubled and wonder why you have to go through the tough times.

These times come piercing like a nail in the flesh with so much pain, you hurt, you cry, you are distressed. Lord why me why do I have to go through the torture of this world.

This time teaches you to be strong, to be mature, to be patient and to go through the hurdles of life with ease. Alas there is a light at the end of this tunnel.

Finally when you go through it and become a victor you rejoice, you laugh, you smile and you have the energy to take each day as it comes because you have conquered and are now a victor of your own.

PSALMS 23:4

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

 

THE TALE OF A SURVIVOR

 

On a Thursday evening, I set out with a group of friends to go and have a nice meal at one of our favorite hang outs. The meal was nice, we caught up on lost memories, played games and later bade farewell to each other.

It was late evening. I went to the taxi stage and I waited for a taxi to no avail, waited for like 2 hours and there was still no sign of one. A thought came to my mind why don’t I get a motor bike so that I can reach home safely. I stopped a random bike that was moving and told the gentle man who was riding it where I was going and he said its ok I will drop you madam.

On our journey the motorbike rider decided to divert on asking him he told me madam I’m taking you to where you told me to take you so I kept calm my heart was panting and I started thinking of all the bad stuff that could happen to me.

Hardly had I talked to him and he drove at a terrible speed to the top of the hill and from a blue he told me that his bike had run out of fuel.

The moment we stopped another motorbike came from behind so I thought we would be helped. I got six hot slaps and four kicks, in this process they were trying to demand for the bag and money and we started to fight for it every time I resisted I would get a kick.

I made an alarm and they decided to throw me in a trench which I had to struggle to get out of and find my way to the road.

I thank God I survived this terrible scenario, things were not taken and I escaped death.

I want to advise everyone out there to be careful while travelling at night or during the day, always have a jacket and avoid travelling at night. When stuck please grab an uber, safe-boda or Taxi

 

 

THE LOVE OF NATURE

On Friday afternoon, I and a group of friends from Watoto church set out to go and camp via the lake shores of Lake Victoria for a camp. We spent three days there. Beauty and wonder is how I can describe this treasure of God that he has set before us.

With the water so calm and splendid early morning, speaks of how much I would to love to stay at the lake side and just admire this beautiful creation.

With the early morning, calmness engulfs the area with birds singing and little monkeys running around in trees as they play and welcome the beginning of a new day.In the early afternoon the water is so rough with waves dashing to the lakeside and splashing lots of water to the shores.

With the late evening, the waters have finally settled in and I can’t wait to just sit down and admire the waters in their beautiful nature. As I prepare for a campfire to end my evening and dance to the tunes of Tamba, salsa and cha-cha.

Thus my three days had to come to an end and i had to say good bye to the most adorable treasure in the universe “LAKE VICTORIA”.

 

 

FAMILY

Family is a small group of people who are born together from the same father and mother.

I happen to come from a very good family that is so supportive of each other.We share our birthday celebrations together,be there for each other when we are sick,critique each other,fight as well.

We have gone to places together and share a lot of experiences together and strive hard to make each other better.

I want to thank God for his availability and providence and giving me a good family.

 

THE BEAUTY OF FRIENDSHIP

Friends once gotten are a fortune to hold on to.
In life we meet people who will correct us,be there for us.
Be with us in our good and bad times.Correct us when we are in wrong.Share good memories for example birthday parties,night outs,birthday parties,weddings and gossip.
I am so blessed to have such good friends,the kind that will be with you till the end of life,these have been the anchor of my life,my role models,my guardian angels and my people and my rock.
My friends  continue being you,from the bottom of my heart,im grateful for you and may God continue being the center of your lives.
I LOVE YOU MY FRIENDS AND MY ANGELS THANKS FOR BEING YOU.Image result for FRIENDS

 

RAINY DAYS IN UGANDA

Rains almost made miss work today,for some reason. I set the alarm and when i decided to go check my phone, Oh my God it was 7:00 am. I checked outside it was still dark,decided to organise and prepare my self. I left the  house at 7:25 am. I decided to brace the heavy rain. All this time i kept wondering,how can it be 7:30 am and its still dark,maybe my phone lied to me.

I walked and walked, the journey seemed longer than before,and it was  dark.

I finally reached  the stage. The mighty nimbus clouds another word for rain hit me like crazy,while i stood at the stage admiring all the people in their cars heading to work.

In my head i was like  why cant these guys give me a lift,dont they see that im immensely wet and im longing for a ride to work.

Taxis past 1 after another at that time,i wished i could squeeze my little butt somewhere,just to get out of the rain.

Thank God for the taxi that came and saved me out of the rain.

As i write i think i just broke the taxi seat because of my overly small weight,ha ha and cant believe im going to be late for work.

As i write its coming to 8:30am and im still in the taxi.

As i approach my work place,Im helped with an umbrella by my work mate.

I reach the  village power offices at 8:50 am and my idle mind  has to come to a stand still,im back to work mode.

THE BEAUTY OF THE PEARL OF AFRICA

Once in while,i travel to the farmland to just relax from the noise and hassle bustle of the busy town.

The farmland brings a lot of relaxation and calmness.It brings back the memories of the good old days when there was no power in the villages.All you had to do was seat around a fire place and tell stories.Having to go the well to fetch water and talk to the old village folks about how life in the village is treating them. Going to the farm to graze some cattle and goats,this alone is just amazing.

And just sleeping in a quiet place where all you can listen to is birds singing.

Admiring well tendered farms up on the hill and looking at cows being grazed.

Milking cows and chasing after goats are some of the activities i like and adore.

Its good to always go back to the villages and admire the “HOME SWEET HOME” that i miss.

 

BIRTH OF A NEW BORN

As culture would have it in Africa,we celebrate the birth of a newborn with so much joy and celebration.

On this particular day the siblings and friends of Mrs Isabella Namanya decided to celebrate the coming of baby Marcel in this new world.

Preparations were made to make sure this day was a success.
