...memories!

There are things about life that cannot be taught to you, you would have to “experience” it, to find your way. I am one of such people that life’s lessons were impacted on through experience. Nothing prepares you for life’s occasional bouts of disappointments and misdemeanors. No matter what qualification you hold, you just have to ‘pass through’ life or let life pass through you.

Yesterday was a day I would refer to as a day of” mixed emotions”. Someone made me very happy that it brought tears of joy to my eyes. That was in the morning before I headed for the office. My day was very hectic as I had to take some delegates and the guest we are hosting for shopping (International Training participants). It was a busy day, but it was refreshing because I was in the company of women. It was tiring, but very refreshing! Later at night, I was again overwhelmed by thoughts of years back, almost two decades back. I remembered my granny and reminisced on the times she was still active and gave orders. I wish she were still here, and wouldn’t mind taking her orders. She was the closest I had to a mother. We may not have communicated to the level a mother and child would have, but I used to listen to her talk about so many things. Things I was to later diffuse and discard as I grew older…I grew “wiser”! We had our differences o so many matters. That was inevitable because, we were from different generations and the gap was way too wide to be closed. They say I looked like my granny. But she was by far, an epitome of modesty I dare to match. God rest her soul! I wish I had her strength and sense of independence. I will always hold her in high esteem for what she represented and lived for…I remembered her last night, amongst several other days, missed her and said a prayer for her.
On a last note:” Do not let anyone push you to be cruel or cold, when you are a good fellow. No matter how frustrated you feel, do not join the wagon by becoming vengeful,
hateful,spiteful and angry at the world. Do not be bad because someone’s been bad to you. Just be good and remain to be good!

Homeland crises...

I shouldn’t have to struggle to put down the words, I was almost blank for a second there. The thoughts of our homecountry weighed heavily on my mind and I just couldn’t help but make a personal supplication for God to see us through. It isn’t just about the fuel price inflation, but so many ills inherent in the system. Don’t get me wrong, am not preaching for Shari’ah as a legal system, but at least a fair governance of the acclaimed ‘Democracy’ we say we’ve got. So much for government of the people by the people and for the people”! It is so sad to see that people can be so obsessed with power, money and authority, forgetting where they are coming from. I mean these politicians are just ordinary humans like you and I, who have been privileged to attain their status, fairly or by fraud. The question is, how can they close their eyes to the sufferings of the people? Are they also not humans who one day would be swallowed by earth, irrespective of wealth or status? Others have gone and …

The che@ting spouse...

The subject of infidelity in marriage is as inexhaustible as your mind can travel .It is something that those who have been hurt and emotionally damaged from its consequence which they understood. Attempts are made to correct this anomally , that has become second to nature.As a matter of fact, it has been concluded that,because men are “polygamous by nature,there can be no man content with a single woman. Ironically or should I say paradoxically however,this submission has every inch of hypocrite in it. Why?Because they would rather a man keeps a side kick,than actually do the lawful thing of taking another wife, or 3 or 4 as our own faith has permitted.
Cheating happens for various reasons, could be emotional,physical ,you’d be surprised-mental and so on. Also,either of the spouses can cheat. What is prevalence (without statistics reference now),is men being most likely to cheat. The major difference however is that, women are more likely to cheat for emotional reasons than men are.…
