And so

My weekend was nice. My time at home even better.



I went to see my mother-in-law, who sat me down for hours teaching me some little facts about being a woman. I saw a very strong woman in her and i admire her perseverance. She has a very small frame and is very quite but you will know she is a wise woman. People came in numbers to see her, you could read the kind of respect they have for her from their body language. It was a time of reflection for the woman. She showed me loads of pictures of the good old days. In all i had a peaceful time. Above all she told me i was beautiful (because i refused to eat much, claiming i wanted to loose weight). For the two nights we prayed and prayed. Now i see why her son always refers to her as a virtuous woman. I must confess she truly is.





BTW does anyone know the leaf called Uziza, it's bitter? because she has recommended i try to eat it at least twice a week "so i don't fall sick" am sure there's more to it. My younger sister has said her friend's eat it for" you know what" am just curious.



Am back at work now, our new office manager has started work yay!



I miss DH, yesteday night i twisted my arm and dislocated it, had to scream for my sister to come and HELP. He would have done it better or maybe if he was around it wouldn't have happened cos i wouldn't have been rolling from one side of the bed to the other..........................



I also feel some kind of peace within me, like something has happened or is about to happen.



A great way to start my month, i wish myself and you guys the best month ever.

They use Uziza to make one kind soup like that too, I think.. aww, Im glad you are enjoying your mother in law, and finally that something that eluded you, you have now attained.

You need to stop thinking about the weight thingy.. because once you try not to dwell on it too much it does fall off. Besides uou know you are stunning self. I dont why all this wahala.

Meanwhile, when will DH be coming back. I love your mother in law already.. you know they never lie.. you see you are beautiful..

You're lucky to have such a sweet mother in law. Most women i know dread meeting their mother in law, don't ask me why? :)

Regards to DH. One!!

Hey Kel, how now? There is really nothing like peace....especially when it passes all human understanding because one's state of mind is expected to be in a state of flux. Wishing you continued peace!

Great mother-in-law. I hope my mother and future wife will flow that way. Its not the norm, you know. I don't know about Uziza being medicinal but folks around me put it and some other things in the palm oil we use to eat boiled yam. Oh memories, them finger-licking, lip-smacking memories.

my mother in law actually ends phone calls to me wit 'i love you'. i never know what to say. im not from a verbally loving family.
is the mother in law thingy a myth?

Afrobabe said...

Bas as a sis I'm happpy for you, good MIL's are hard to find. Are you sure you don't know Uziza again? It's not bitter when used in soups and things, it has a lovely herby taste. I can't make Egusi or achi without it. The bitter one you're thinking of is called utazi. Anyway, that apart, Whats up, and how far with that thing? Please update me whilst you practice your herbal medicine.

Thanks everyone. Wow i guess you never really know what you have.

And the Uziza question . No one seemed to understand. I meant like what is it for. Cos she said it'll help my running nose etc. I suspect she wants a grand child....................

Aaah. Your MIL sounds lovely. A couple of friends of mine are currently going thru hell with theirs. The horror stories i've heard! I've actually begun to pray for an MIL who is actually human as opposed to being a monster, and your post give me hope....thanks for sharing
