Helping Kids Choose Career Paths

CareerKids-group

My 6yr old little man, D1 now wants to be a Doctor, a Chef and a Teacher. Together.
D2 is now 4yrs and still wants to be a Doctor.

You ever seen anyone with combined honors a la career before?
Maybe it's going to start with my boy, D1.

Don't. Dare. Laugh. Yet.

Remember this post where he wanted to be a Doctor, an Engineer and a Pastor? Now the tides have apparently turned and the Pastor option has been eliminated in less than a year and the Chef option introduced into the equation.

Kindred Spirits

 
Your smile cracks through like the morning dew
Yet through it all your heart cries shine forth
Try as you may to mask the painful thoughts
Yet they bubble through like brew

We know God's care is sacrosanct, but life is hardly fair
Often wearying her loyal inhabitants
As she relishes dishing out mixed croissants
But hunger for more, we dare

Friends are sent from above to hold our hearts and hands
Sweet companions on the journey fraught with joys and pains
Trying to assuage regardless of gains
But we need to navigate the bumps minding the bands

Tears and groaning will soon be gone
For we see the glimmers peeking from behind the cloud
Struggling to break free to embrace, and you to warmly daub
But with the struggles, one more time, we need be done

The heart yearns to make it better
Yet worse it might become
As we struggle to find answers alone on the dome
Which has since threatened to become a crater

Raise your head and look to Him, grit not your teeth
As you try to suppress the feelings and anguish
While hands and hearts we hold on the pitch
Like kindred spirits.


*To YOU and everyone going through any form of painful situation, distress or confusion...look solely up to HIM for solutions...lean 'slightly' on  friends and remain STRONG...you are not alone*

So Different...Yet the Same


I hate to think my boys are the only kids that ask cringe-worthy questions, and in public places too.

You know questions that make you feel like O.M.G...not so loud...and not here!

Diverse Faces of Love...(I)


I see it sitting pretty
Sandwiched between the longings of lonely hearts
How high could beauty get
Bestowing the pleasure of its grace on expectant races

I touch it ever so dainty
Warming up to the allure of its beautiful parts
How often did they fret
Flowing from the dark recesses of tired paces

They hold it so lofty
Grateful for the wondrous pleasure of its gaiety
How beautiful could love get
Illuminating unknown lives from the diverse outlets of her many faces.

DIY: LOVEly Fabric Accessory


These pretty LOVEly accessories are really easy to make. See the shape?

You know how elections have been scheduled to hold on February 14 in Nigeria and how it's going to be an actively bleak day for those who have dedicated that day to 'celebration of love'...I mean 'those' that always go (all) out to celebrate Valentine or love every 14th of February.
