To God be the glory

I give God all the glory and honor for helping me raise my child! She turned 5 on the 16th of April and I am blessed! Omolayo, Feyintoluwa, It has been a long, hard journey but I thank God that he chose me as a vessel to bring you to this world.
In Lauren Hills words....You are a beautiful reflection of his grace!






My Everything!
Just for this morning, I am going to smile when I see your face and laugh when I feel like crying.
Just for this morning, I will let you choose what you want to wear, and smile and say how perfect it is.
Just for this morning, I am going to step over the laundry, and pick you up and take you to the park to play.
Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.
Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with you in the front and blow bubbles..
Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck, and I will buy you one if he comes by.
Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about what you are going to be when you grow up, or second guess every decision I have made where you are concerned.
Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you trying to fix them.
Just for this afternoon, I will take us to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can have both toys..
Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story about how you were born and how much I love you.
Just! for this evening, I will let you splash in the tub and not get angry.
Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.
Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my favorite TV shows.
Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you pray, I will simply be grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever given.
I will think about the mothers and fathers who are searching for their missing children, the mothers and fathers who are visiting their children's graves instead of their bedrooms, and mothers and fathers who are in hospital rooms watching their children suffer senselessly, and screaming inside that they can't handle it anymore.
And when I kiss you good night I will hold you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then, that I will thank God for you, and ask him for nothing, except one more day..............

A close call....

What I failed to mention on my last entry was how I have been to the ER twice in the last week! My trip to ATL left me with a blood clot! At first I thought it was just a muscle pull, I was rubbing bengay on it and waking up in the middle of the night to take Tylenol and shit. Then on Sunday morning, I could not get my ass up! I mean I was stuck in the bed! I had to pee but I could not get up! I called the ambulance and they took me to the ER in with a quickness! Omolayo was not home, she was off spending the night at the Banjoko's.
It turned out my muscle pull was actually a blood clot in my calf! I was like whoa! This type of shit only happen to 90 years old ladies named Hilda who are bed ridden from old age! And not 26 years old active single mother!
I was admitted and given injections in my stomach and IV narcotics for the pain! I was ready to get the hell out of there, I was thinking about work, and I have only been working there for like 2 weeks and shit! I called my boss to tell her that I was in the hospital and that I would be back on Wednesday at the latest. I was discharged with instructions to give myself the Lovenox injections for the next 5 days and take coumadin tablets alternating 5mg and 10mg. Then I was asked to follow up with a physician every other day till my levels were normal.
I just want to thank God for his mercies in my life! Lovenox injections are $200 a shot and Doctors visit are $100 per visit! How in the hell am I going to pay for that? I don’t have no insurance! But I remembered His word said 'He will not give you more than you can handle' so I let my Father do His job. I was given all the medication for free and as if that was not miraculous enough, on my first visit to the doctor the receptionist asked for my $100 and the doctor interrupted her that my visits would be free of charge! Jesus loves me yes I know!!!!
On my second visit, I was told that the blood levels were still the same and that I was not making progress, so I was readmitted to the hospital, this time I bypassed the ER. After 3 nights in the hospital, I am healed! My levels are where they ought to be but I still need to be on coumadin indefinitely, from where I'm coming, that is a small price to pay. I just want to thank God that he found me worthy of his mercy and he blessed me with His healing power.
Dare, Denrele, and Dupe……I thank you guys for holding Molayo down while I was MIA, I pray that I will be able to bless you in more ways than you've blessed me. A special thank you to GOD….you make my world all right!

Ohhhhhhwweeee…lets see.... what have I been up to?

My new job has been somewhat crazy, Its been about 4 weeks now, I had mixed feelings because, some chick was trying to flunk me, you know being the new girl and all, but you know me with my 'Homie don’t play that' attitude, I was not going out like no punk! Then it occurred to me how blessed I was to find this opportunity, how God had shown me favor and I decided, I would kiss each and every ass I had to and smile all the way to the bank too. Being broke aint no joke! But you know my Father is Awesome, HE knew that as tiny as this injustice was, it was bothering me and HE made it alright. I was on a conference call this morning and out of nowhere the chick in question resigned just like that! I mean WTF? I don’t care, I don’t wanna know, I just thank GOD! I feel kinda bad though that I was happy she was leaving, she was really, really nice, a little too nice it was scary, like you know passive aggressive kinda shit like "Oh Bola you are leaving already…..WOW….well have a great evening!", I am thinking "Its 5 o'clock! I was here at 8am! I did not take a lunch!" but instead, I smile sweetly and say "Good night, don't stay too long". I really don’t mind staying late but Omolayo's daycare closes at 5:30 and I barely make it on time. Anyway….there is another problem solved! I got my Amex today! An Amex with my name on it! OH hell call the police! My ass is fin to be arrested! Okay you know American Express aint stupid enough to give my ass no damn credit card, I got it through my job! I know I need to check my self and respect myself and cut that card up now, return that shit, leave it in the office, seal it in a vault....I dont know what the hell I'm gon do but damn! why they got to bring out my weakness???????????
