Sometimes we are fooled by appearances. In my
opinion, we should never be sorry if we later discover that we were mistaken while doing a good deed. We all have the power to influence others. It is up to us, whether we are going to abuse that power to manipulate people or use it to help them.

It’s almost time for me to go home for the holidays. I haven’t seen my family (overseas) in 6 months. The last time I was there, managing our daughter had become tough already but Poppy had only just started showing signs of what was to come. I’m about to break the news when I see them. ••• Poppy is special needs. We always knew she was different. We always knew she was special. She’s always moved in her own way, done things in her own time. We’ve always embraced her difference, letting her do and be whoever she felt like, even when it was not the common expectation of appropriate behaviour. ••• Who knows how her little brain works? She can’t tell anyone. So she screams. She scratches, pinches and bites. This is her way of communicating, her way of telling us what she wants. She can’t do it any other way. Our little baby faces challenges we can barely comprehend. ••• Our worries and frustrations don’t have a name. We don’t have an explanation to give anyone. Support has been terribly hard to get. But I’ll tell you one thing I know for sure: we will get through this. We will be victorious! She is still our world. She is beautiful and amazing. We won’t hide nor be ashamed.
(Look at this picture and tell me you would turn your back to the cutest Peekaboo lover in a Santa hat!) ••• We will be there for her every step of the way and repeat every morning « this is not the end of the world » even when it feels like it. We will get up everyday and say « let’s have a good day » and if it isn’t, we’ll try again tomorrow. One day at a time. ••• It will be slow and probably long winded, but this is the path we have been put on. This is our journey. What choice do we have? Throw her in the bin and start again? I think not! And if you don’t want to be around her, you don’t have to. ~

One of the things Sola and I have enjoyed over the past 5 years in carrying out Smile Without Worms is the support of family, friends and colleagues. Their consistency over the years have been amazing. They have supported with their time, skill and resources. And when I mean they, I mean you as well.
I want to specially thank a couple of family and friends who supported this year's outreach through their gifts and cash donations this past week.
Thank you Funmilola Obajimi Showole for all the clothes, school bags, lunch bags, shoes and belts that you brought.
Thank you Amandianeze Lawrencei, Fred Chika and Muknaan Nshe for that cash donation.
Thank you Emeka Nobis and Ralu Obiakor Emeka-Obi for spreading the word through your Facebook platforms.
We appreciate your kind gestures. Thank you for choosing to put smiles on the faces of people.
Would you like to be part of the wonderful people who would support this year's outreach?
Together we can deworm as many kids as we can find, educate them or oral health hygiene and sanitation, give gifts and food items to adults and children for the Christmas celebration. You can join us to reach out to the poor living in rural communities by donating clothes, shoes, bags, toys, toothpastes, toothbrushes, and food items, etc.
You can also donate financially to:
Insolar Consulting Services
Zenith Bank PLC
Hand in hand, together we can achieve more.

Heyyyy!!! Je suis heureuse de te partager ce projet que le Seigneur m'a mis à coeur. Cette évangélisation est ouverte à tous!! Si tu vis en région parisienne, que tu en a assez d'etre un(e) suiveur( euse) et que tu désires être ACTEUR pour le Seigneur, DM me. 😁😁 Share si tu peux pour atteindre le max de personnes.
Au programme: - distribution de chocolats chaufs aux sdf et leur apporter l'Evangile
- distribution de petits paquets de bonbons faits maison ( les paquets hein, pas les bonbons 😂)
- distribition de prospectus.
Si je t en parle c est parce que je suis sûre que c est un projet qui vient de Dieu. J ai également la couverture spirituelle d'un des pasteurs de l'assemblée dans laquelle je prie.
Voilà voilà !! Stay blessed 🕊

One of the saddest parts of leaving Scotland was leaving my records behind. Ironically, many of them were purchased in NYC on various digging jaunts in the 90’s, but their return trip proved a lengthy orbit...I will be eternally grateful to @charliesparra for generously storing my pretty huge collection for 7 years! And to @cctv76 for helping me ship the lot over like a boss. Having my records back in my life feels right, like home. My musical journey began on vinyl and I intend to see it continue thus... Shout outs to @christaylorstudio for the photos! 👍🏼
