Family Matters

While we sit around the dinner table and I look back and forth between my moms, I remember how it was hard to understand, as a kid, that it was okay to have a different family.  I used to think that something was missing, that there was something wrong because I didn’t have a father. …

#BringBackOurGirls

I am Nigerian. My father was born in Nigeria. He worked hard and was fortunate enough to be awarded a scholarship to travel to the United States for his college education. He met my mother… and the rest is history. I am my father’s daughter. I have two daughters of my own, both deeply embedded…

A Wish for my Children

Dear Phoenix and Trinity, It’s November and the Gratitude Train continues rolling along. I was recently gifted with a reason to pause and think about my life, life’s fragility, and my legacy. You two popped right into mind. I sincerely hope that you see me as much more than the grouchy den mother who barks…

So Much Gratitude

I am writing this week’s blog from bed. Tomorrow I have to have a colonoscopy. My father was diagnosed with colon cancer this past summer. He shared the news with the family on July 4, just a couple weeks after I turned 40. He had surgery, a battery of tests was done, and he was…

The Season of Gratitude

It’s that time of year. I log onto Facebook and up pop the posts. “I’m grateful for my kids.” “I’m grateful for my job.” “I’m grateful for kind people.” Don’t get me wrong. I’m grateful for my kids, my job, and kind people. I think my kids are hilarious. They like to record silly videos…

To turn a repeated phrase from the Old Testament, “And these are the generations of…my cats: Ming I, Taffy, Ming II, Zoe and Maxine Von Kitty, Mama, Chuck, Bud and Lou, Sam and Dave Silverman, Harry,  and Eve and Calpurnia. Some of them ran the house on their own, others – and you can tell…

Be the Good

This graphic showed up in my Facebook news feed one day and I thought, “I really love that.” (Though, Facebook really only lets you commit to liking something – love not yet an option.) So, I “liked” it. Being good isn’t easy. Or, figuring out how to be good isn’t easy. There are tons of…

Integrity

Integrity: A Woman’s Place is of sound moral character and adheres to ethical principles. I thoroughly enjoy the magic of the internet. The internet gives us that essential power to take a word like “Integrity” and dissect it. We can ask the internet, “What does it mean to be of sound moral character?” and then…

Deep Thoughts

On Sunday, December 30, I was in a pew at Doylestown United Methodist Church at 8:15 a.m. when Reverend Michael Murphy (Pastor Mike to all of us who know and love him) delivered his sermon on Simeon and Anna. I admit, I still can’t tell you much about Simeon and Anna. That was not my…
