Insights from March

​8th March 2017 Dear Suzan,  Forgive me for writing to you on this Oh-so-important day, but you have to understand that it’s the only day, in all my 31 day visit, when both you and I get a holiday. Plus, I did not want my excitement over receiving your letter, to be made so obvious…

Graduation: A celebration of the Faithfulness of God!

There are many things I should have written about by now; say, how I made it through the gruelling, gruesome January, the euphoria that came with the realization that the troublesome January was no more and ofcourse, the magic of the much anticipated Valentine’s Day.

Goodbye 2016,Hello 2017

​31st December 2016. It seems like it was only yesterday when I was writing down my hopes and dreams for 2016. I was both thrilled and terrified of what 2016 had in store for me and I only had courage enough to make only one resolution: 2016 would be a year of facing my fears,…

#Grateful

A few weeks back, Morris and I were discussing the very important issue of the children we will have one day. We are yet to agree on the names we will give them and whether we should have a girl or boy first, but we did agree on one thing: that we’d give them a…

Formalities and Appearances…

My conversations with people I meet sometimes go like this… EITHER Person: Heyyyyyyy! Me: Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiii…! This is then followed by something that is supposed to be a hug but is really not.
