The children and I just came back from a quick trip to Lagos, Nigeria and it was everything it was meant to be.
Family means a lot to me and for months I’ve been planning to see my cousin and her daughters and other family members. . . Something had to give because every time we tried to plan, it was always something blocking it (ticket prices/ Covid test travel fees, school schedules) as I said, it was always something.
I decided to make a move. Yes, there was a few days missed of school, but we booked and left. Seeing my family was the most wonderful experience ever, it was such a bonding and reminiscing moment. I just found myself looking around the room and just seeing so many beautiful things. … It was so priceless.
I am very close to one of my cousin’s and I couldn’t wait for the moment that my children, finally met her children. She hadn’t even met my daughter yet! & the last time she saw my son, he was just a baby! Now look how big everyone is.
The theme was definitely hearts everywhere! That’s all it was, my heart was full, and it is very much full.
Sometimes we can get so caught up in our own lives, we forget about what’s important. Family is important. Keeping God first is important. These are special and matter to me. What I took from this trip is i don’t want to be away from my family long.
My children had a blast, papa bear even surprised us there, which I did not expect, like I said – it was just everything it needed to be.
Traveling is so expensive these days which is another blog post on it’s own soon to come lol but, there are certain trips that are priceless.
