I Cried and Laughed in Equal Measure

Am the kind of people who like postphoning stuff,ever since my friend and sister mentioned to me about the advantages of a blog it was like 4 years ago,this was at the sametime i was preparing for the birth of my newest baby in production-Taj-Touching lives,since then i have bin opening a blog upto this day,and so today i laugh and cry in equal measures.

The 4th day of April 2009,at a 11am, a son was born unto me,his name Havila Mutugi,after month of waiting and finally he was here in my arms,presented to me by his dad,i first cried and then laughed in equal measures.All my friends and family came over,it was truelly an Easter gift,we cried and we laughed in equal measures.

Then Prince Hansel Mugendi,happened on 10th march 2011,the same time his brother was born,presented to in the same manner like Havila,that time I said it was Grace from God,i cried,i cried and everyone in the hospital who passed by and looked like a doctor,a nurse,a cleaner anyone,i told them,asante Daktari,asante mungu akubariki my baby is here with me,Thank you for the goodwork,some looked at me like i had lost my mind bt others understood maybe am still under anaethia,i cried and i laughed in equal measures.

The there was this girl,Lilian Anjema,she had completed her high school,attained a B, stayed home for 3years because her parents could not afford her school fees,the moment she had my dad was looking for a househelp to go to Nairobi she willinglly came,my dad told her my daughter is a good person if you work well for her she will pay your college fees, i dont have all that money bt i said God always provide.After staying with her for nine months i took her to Kagumo Teachers Training-she is doing a diploma in Education(chemistry n Biology).The day she was joining the school we both laughed and cried in equal measures.

My aim is to touch someone,to inspire and to let the whole world know everything is possible,i have been through hell and back,love and Hatred,with and without,bt one thing i have learnt is My G od is Faithful.And today as i launch this blog i will cry and laugh in equal measures and i hope you will join me in doing the same,WONT YOU?
