My sisters and I on New Years Eve at my church
My people, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I thank God for the blessing of seeing a new year. There are many people who didn't make it o! Yesterday I talked on the phone with my uncle and my grandma, calling us from Naija to wish us Happy New year, and also saying happy birthday to my sister, a new year's baby. She's the one in the purple dress in the pic above.  She's 18! Oh my goodness, I still remember the day she was being born. My dad took us to one of our family friend's house and we watched Free Willy and slid down the carpet stairs on our bottoms for fun.... Man! Those were the days.... Anyways, the girl is a senior in high school and applying to colleges and what not. Wow! Time flies...

I love talking to my grandma though. She's my mom's mom and my only living grandparent. I always feel special when she calls me Ijeoma, the name she gave me. Ijeoma means "good journey" and she said they gave me that name because my mother's journey to marry my dad was a good one, me being the result; I was her first grandchild. :) Yesterday when I talked to her she told me that they're praying for us, like always and that for me in particular, she's praying for marriage, since that's the next thing a woman of my age would want... Lol... Got to love grandma. I just said amen. Hehehehe.... We'll see what God brings in 2012, and I'll leave that at that!

I think this is the year when we'll finally be going to Naija, mainly for my grandfather's burial, but it will be really good to see all my family. I'm expecting some great things this year, by God's grace. I hope you are too!


  1. This year is definitely got to be good. Happy birthday to your sister, and all the best to your family. Welcome to 2012.

  2. Thanks Ms. Whitman, I believe 2012 will be blessed year for us both... God bless you!
