    When God Gives You Lemons

    Did I hear you say make lemonade? I feel like my faith and trust in God was literally tested earlier today in church. It’s the first Sunday in September which translates to thanksgiving in church. If you are not familiar with thanksgiving in a Nigerian church, then think gorgeously dressed men and women with cheerful faces, excited and ready to dance happily to lovely gospel music in all language possible. I had spent the better part of August gathering strenght from inspirational teachings and podcasts and songs that soothe the mind but I had never really practised ‘Thanking God in/for my current ordeal’.

    I should be venting tho'

    It’s funny how I’m here really happy after I promised I was going to vent about an older female colleague that attempted to annoy me. *sigh* Well, Never underestimate the power of chocolates especially when it’s from a soon to be favourite person. (A box of ‘Godiva’ for me at work. Whoop! Whoop!! ) So this is it, before my first day @ work, Mum and I had shared lots of stories, talks, planned and impromptu chats about the working environment and she had given me a rundown (which felt like one of those long talks in camp, except I dint have to sit under a tree to listen) of…
