Working At Home Opportunities

Here is a great article about work from home opportunities. I need to explore as well because that extra income will always go a long way.

Enjoy!

Home Independence

Working at home opportunities is sought after by many. It means more freedom, spend more time with family and friends and gain a real sense of accomplishment.

Reasons To Work At Home

Everyone has their own idea why to work from home but for some, the reason is more pressing. The biggest influence for work at home jobs are single parents. I myself am a full-time single dad, and work at home opportunities fit my lifestyle best. I am always being called on by my daughter and all of her life’s demands. Not to mention I am mom and dad with the full duties of both sides. Sadly, I don’t have time to go to work!!

However, there are other reasons that make work from home jobs so fitting. There are people that are handicapped or care-givers that the traditional job lifestyle just won’t work. Work at home jobs also…

Happy New Year

Hello, I hope you are well and keeping safe. Thank you for stopping by. Here is wishing you a wonderfully blessed new year. Despite all, we are still here.

Truth is, 2020 was a scary year and we hoped the virus would somehow disappear by the time we say “happy new year” however that is not the case. It was actually the first time we had to crossover into a new year with a 9pm curfew and were advised not to use fireworks and light a candle instead. Rules from level 3 lockdown that had to be put in place urgently as numbers kept increasing.

I am grateful that we are well, even though we all don’t feel 100%, I am glad we are all home, together with thankful hearts. My husband, a musician, saxophonist to be precise, released a music video today titled “Thank You Papa” which what we spent the whole day sharing on all our social media platforms.

See our message below for you as well:

🎊Happy New Year to you and your family. Join us to appreciate God with this new song titled

“Thank you Papa” 💃🕺

We pray 2021 will be a year of overflowing glory for us all.

I was the project manager for the production and it was such pleasure. We had a friend who graciously allowed us to use her and her husband’s home😇 I am super grateful that we had friends who were available to support and be a part of the music video.

Please watch and let me know what you think. Feel free to like share and subscribe to his YouTube channel.

I go back to work on Monday the 4th of January and really wish that I had another two weeks of holiday to rest and spend time with my children but what can I say, duty calls!

Keep well, stay hydrated, be happy, be kind, stay positive and laugh often. All will be well. I’ve got to go for now.

Have a wonderfully blessed 2021 I hope that we all reap positive outcomes to steps we have taken prior to now. Bye 👋

Welcome once again :)

This is my welcome message and I am so glad that you are reading this because it means that this lady finally launched out. Honestly, I am not quite sure what has held her back for so long but as with life, when it’s time, then it’s time. Wait, why am I writing in third person singular? Well, she is me and I am very happy to be the one that you will be reading from every Friday night and I hope we get to relate with one another and learn from one another.

Mostly, I just like to pour out my thoughts and I find that I feel relieved when I am able to write. It makes me feel like I have spoken to someone and they heard me. Which means that now, I will be sharing my life experiences, knowledge, wisdom, lifestyle and thoughts with you, yes you and I hope you get to do the same. I also will write about life as a woman who is a wife, mother, has a career and has businesses she is trying to establish. What are my coping techniques? How do I find time for me? Am I a strict parent? Is my hair afro? All these things I will write about and more.

I think I need to stop for now 🙂 and if you read it to this point, I am saying welcome once again, thank you for clicking and reading. Does that rhyme? Yes, a little bit.

Stayed tuned to read more from me. I am glad that she finally writes. I look forward to reading from you from time to time in the comment section. Keep well.

Thank you and welcome to my page. I appreciate you stopping by 🙂

You are Welcome!!

If you are reading this, then it means you are on my blogspot and reading my very first post (well not first post for some, I realized I didn’t publish it)! So I say to you, welcome and thank you for stopping by.
She Finally Writes will mainly be an interactive blog where I will post my original articles that will hopefully lead to useful discussions as well as question and answer sessions.
The proper use of English is quite important to me therefore, I will post some articles that have to do with English language grammar. I will give some lessons and tips from time to time and I will also answer questions I get along the line.
I am also a loving wife and a caring mother. This means that this blog will also have posts with regards to helpful marriage and parenting tips that have worked for me. I believe these tips will also work for at least one other person than myself.
Finally, there will be posts about general experiences about living away from home. Home being either your country of nationality or a country where you lived for several years before relocating to where you are now. These will come from my experience of being away from home for seven years and those of friends from different countries that I’ve met whilst here, who are also away from home.
I am so excited and can’t wait to begin! I sincerely hope that this blog will make me happy that I finally decided to start writing and sharing my thoughts and life experiences. Once again, welcome to my blog. Thank you.
Enjoy!!!

Beautiful quote

✍Quote for the day✍

Coffee never knew it will taste nice and sweet, before it met sugar and milk. We are good as individuals but become better when we blend with the right people. The world is full of nice people, if you can’t find one, be one. 
The richest wealth is wisdom. The strongest weapon is patience. The best security is faith. The greatest tonic is laughter, and the greatest force is love. The surest assurance is hope in God. And the source of our strength is the joy of the Lord. Surprisingly all are free. So enjoy them!

Baby/Toddler laughter

What makes your baby/toddler laugh? For my 15 month old, other than the standard ‘tickling’, funny songs and funny dances do the trick. Yes, sing an original song or a composed one in a funny way and my son laughs so hard that you wonder if there is something else making him laugh. Same goes for funny dance. Dance funny and you’ve got him giggling. 


What does your baby or toddler do that make you laugh? Well for me, it’s his dance! He dances the same way to any music at all. Sometimes dancing to people’s discussion, lol! He just loves to dance. He also loves singing! I find his singing thrilling and funny. Especially when he thinks there’s no one watching or listening to him. It is hilarious and tickles me!

What a co-incidence that the same things get us laughing? Singing and dancing. We just love each other and love the same things!

So back to my question, what makes your child laugh?

Diaper Story

Diaper Story
When I found out that I was pregnant, I was excited! So much that I started dreaming about my baby boy. I knew he would be a boy even before the scan confirmed it at the five months check up. One thing I didn’t look forward to however, is the thought of changing diapers with poop in it! I just couldn’t imagine me doing that everyday. I spoke to my sister about it because at the time, she had three boys of her own. Her response to me was ‘you’ll be happy to see the poop’ and thought to myself, duh! Anyways, 15 months down the journey since my baby was born, I am happy to see poop! It confirms that he is healthy. It is not that bad after all. When I smell his stinky poop, I get his diaper, wipes and cream and do the job without thinking ewww. Of course sometimes, it smells so bad but I still tickle him during the change.
So, to the moral of the story, things always seem so bad, terrible and even sometimes scary before you try it. But, when you do, you realize that it isn’t as bad as you presumed it would be.

Bobo’s first day at school

My baby’s first day at school is supposed to be his first day at school but turned out to be pretty much mine as I couldn’t even get much sleep the night before. Hubby and I had checked out different schools and finally selected this particular one. So the morning of his first day at school came and I got him ready and reminded him that he was going to school (he had been saying ‘go to school’ for a while). I was so so excited.
Anyway, we got to the school and into his classroom- mustard seed class- that we had been shown when we checked out the school and we got in. My honest expectation for the first day at school was tears, tears and more tears because he had been with just me and his dad for 2 and half years but he surprised me. He just kept pointing and identifying items on the pictures around. ‘Zebra’, ‘elephant’, ‘green’, ‘car’, ‘number 8’ and so forth. Even the teachers and the assistants were impressed. He went on and on moving around from one toy to the other and we took some pictures and videos while doing so. We left the classroom with a happy child in there, our child.
And when I went to pick him from school later in the day, I became a star, a superstar. As I walked towards the playground where all the children were, I heard my son’s teacher say to the other moms around ‘here comes the mother’ and they turned around with smiles on their faces. I kept wondering what was up as I walked towards them. When I got there, they all kept praising me and asking how I did it. They were all amazed all-time how much my son knew: colors, numbers, alphabets, animals, fruits and to top it off, he could spell his name! I was beaming with pride that all my hardwork paid off! Not hardwork as such because we learned through play most of the time but I put in a good amount of effort and persistence in teaching him.
My question is, how was the first day at school for your child/children. At what age did they start? How did you feel about it? How did the teachers make it easier?
Truth be told, my son is in a new class with a new teacher and has been crying every morning. His crying seems to reduce each day and hopefully soon, he will adapt and adjust to his new teacher, new classroom and accept that change is inevitable  in life.
I look forward to your comments 🙂

Kindness Reproduced

This story was forwarded in a group chat and I thought to myself, why not share it? This is because the message is quite profound and is worth sharing so, enjoy!
A poor boy who was begging from door to door to feed his hungry stomach, decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, at the next house, he lost his nerve when a lovely young girl opened the door. So instead of a meal, he asked for a glass of water. The girl thought he looked hungry. So, she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, & asked thereafter : ‘how much do I owe you for this ? “You don’t owe me anything”, she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for kindness”. He said, “then I thank you from the bottom of my heart”.
Years later, that girl (now a woman) became critically ill, and the local doctors tried their possible best to save her life but they couldn’t cure her. They finally sent her to the big city where specialists studied her rare illness. Dr. Kelly was called in for the consultation, when he heard the name of the town where she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately, he rose & went down the hall of the hospital to her room. He recognised her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life.
From that day, he gave special attention to that case. After a long struggle, the battle was won and the woman was cured. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass her final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the bill and It was sent to her room. The woman feared opening it because she was sure it might take the rest of her life savings to pay for it . Finally she looked at it and noticed something was written at the edge of the note, ‘Paid In Full With a Glass of Milk’. Tears filled her eyes as she immediately remembered.
Every form of kindness you show is never in vain, it reproduces itself. Well, not necessarily before your eyes, but it always does. I’ve been kind to you by sharing this story. And you be kind to share it with others. It’s good to be good. Always be nice: It will come back to you
