I’m Back….Been a Long While….

Haven’t posted on this my dear blog for an awfully long time…..

Isaiah 49:15 ’Can a woman forget her infant…?’

Oh my!!! I feel like I am that woman, who seemingly ‘forgot’ her infant, her baby….

My blog has been out here not being ‘fed’…no fresh content….and as such, I feel I’ve stunted her growth…

What really happened?
What stopped me?
Why haven’t I posted in such a long time?
Did I get so busy?
Did motivation take a back seat?
Did inspiration fly out the window and go with the wind?
Have I been….mmmhh…lazy?

I may sit trying to come up with a good reason for not posting, but there is no reason to well explain my absence on this space….I will not give any explanation to me, they’ll just be excuses.

Every other day, the thoughts that I neglected my dear blog haunt me…Today I take that bold step, getting back to her…

I will pick up from where I stopped…and bear this in mind  >>>>  https://felicityshiro.wordpress.com/2011/02/05/my-blogmy-babymy-tot/

An Injured Knee II….

Agony is:

Having;
Wound dressing to do severally in a day
To think which foot goes forward first when starting to walk,
A can’t bend knee that put me in a can’t kneel, can’t squat situation
To sleep in a certain position
To walk with a limp no matter the attempt to walk upright…
All because of an injured badly hurting knee….
 

The wound seemed to be getting worse by the day and the pain accompanying it too much…but still I hoped and prayed it get well soonest without need to use any more medication besides the antiseptics…

From my history, wounds don’t go well with me and a slight scratch used to become quite sick and turn into a big wound which would take quite a while to heal…and I would need so many injections and medication in the process…Being told that my immune was quite low wasn’t bad enough…

As I’ve become a woman of faith, such are some of the things I’ve had to speak against. When one believes…everything is possible…God’s healing no matter what has been said in regard to a medical condition.

 
As I do this, it’s two(2) weeks since I got that accident on my knee, but with a praise report…My knee is healed…a scar may have been left behind, but it’s back to normal functioning…Praise Jesus!!

From that experience of having an injured knee…Oh how one takes for granted the normal functioning of body parts…it’s not until a part is out of order that one realizes just how bad it is to have to be somewhat disabled…

Remember to thank God for wholeness

A Knee Injury….

 

It was early in the morning as usual when I left the house, before 6a.m. Unlike other days, had to wait for a while before a public service vehicle came by heading to the city…it was already past 6a.m when a car came by, and along with other passengers, I boarded…It was a mini-bus of a freight I hadn’t traveled in before…but as long as it was going to town…it was o.k or so it seemed…since I couldn’t wait longer…

The drive to town turned to be a long journey as the car kept stopping at every existing and non-existing stage…talk of delay…

By the time we got to the city, it was way past my usual time…I was running late the minutes were passing real fast and I had another bus to take….!

As I was alighting from that bus to go to the next which was a few meters away, I encountered an accident…I stumbled , all effort to balance as to avoid the fall fruitless , before I knew it I was on the ground on my knee…supporting my self with one hand as I had my hand bag on the other! It happened so fast, I can’t just explain how…By the time I rose, my knee was hurting badly. Fortunately my clothes didn’t get dirtied given it was a wet morning, was in a short,black skirt and a  bright flowery blazer.  I didn’t however have the time to check on the extent of the injury…I felt such excruciating pain…but I had to hurry to the next bus else I’d get late to the office, and lateness s so unlike me….

It’s when in the bus for the next part of the journey that I got to examine the injury…My stockings were torn, and it wasn’t just another grazing, it appeared I had incurred quite a wound…

With the few wet wipes I had left, I cleaned the wounded area, but it wasn’t clean enough…I dabbed it with a hanky and looked forward to getting to the office to perform proper first Aid.

I got to the office in good time…but my knee was so hurting I walked with a limp…First things first, before even signing in for duty, the First Aider I am, had to do First Aid on me…Fortunately, the First  Aid kit in the office was well stocked with all necessary items from Antiseptic to all a variety of Bandages, I put into good usage what I needed…by the end of which, I was good to go…the pain was too much yes, but on way to recovery with  First Aid done on it…

That isn’t what you’d call a nice day’s start…that happened on Tuesday, 10th April…

A Come Back…

I’ve been quite away from my blog…no recent posts…I don’t wanna look at the date I last blogged….
Have I been so busy?
Isn’t there barely any time to spare to post something?
Well, been quite time pressed, it’s like all minutes are taken up…

This >>>>… https://felicityshiro.wordpress.com/2011/02/05/my-blogmy-babymy-tot/
makes me like a bad momma who’ve neglected her baby…

I promise me to make time for blog…last year a time like this, I was so devoted to ‘a post a day’…As I resume to blogging, I may not do a post a day, but I’ll try as much as possible to be posting every so often…

No Time Alarm…!

I’ve always trusted myself with being able to wake up at the time I need to arise and remembering things to do at set times. Kind of settin my mind for it, no need for time alarms, which I don’t like.
However, in recent days, I’ve been forced by circumstances to set wake up time alert/alarm and some other time alarms.
At times, I’ve been awoken by the waking time alarm only for me to press the ‘snooze’ button! 10mins or so later, off it goes again…with that, I know I’ve no option but to arise, else…I’ll run late, n’ lateness I hate!

When I have a night that I have to neither set mind’s nor phone’s clock wake up alarm, it’s a great night right from the start. No strict wake up time, no early morning…
On such nights I just want to sleep…

2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,700 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Went Home…After Quite a While

 

It had been quite a long while, since I took this trip…journey to my upcountry home…All that while, I had every reason as to why I didn’t want to go home…

The day came, 31st December, 2011, and the question ‘when did you lastly go home…?’ was thrown my way…by someone so dear…I went ahead with my ‘why not’ explanations…

My ‘reasons’ and ‘explanations’, valid and varied as they were, were carefully listened to…but then, for each of my ‘why not…’ there was a ‘why to…’ counter

By the end of that session, the ‘why to’ appeared to have won the ‘debate’ and there was kind of an ultimatum that I should go home, and with that I was convinced that I should go home…

It wasn’t to be ‘sometime in the near future’ but it was to be immediate…’tomorrow’ …which was to be New Year’s Day. Having made that decision, there were no more excuses or postponement to make…I was to go home

Yesterday New Year’s Day, was the day…after a wonderful service at Church, I was all to go …

I left the City in the afternoon for the journey I hadn’ t taken for a long while. While traveling I had mixed feelings, was I to feel excited that I was going home at last, or was it a guilty feeling that it had been quite a while since I did so…?

A little over two hours later, I was already within my home county, looking around, familiar were the surroundings…no much change if any…I looked forward to getting home…It was to be a surprise visit since I hadn’t told those at home I was to be going there…

Getting home unexpectedly, the surprise moment was surely such…surprise…! The time I had been away must have worked quite some changes on my physique to an extent that all kind of comments came my way….

The first evening and night of 2012 went well, giving way to a bright second day of the New Year…by the end of which I was to travel back…

It could have been only a night and less than a day that was there, but good thing is that I went home and it was much appreciated…For now, it’s till next time
