Many main carers suffer in silence. This book is written from one parent to another. People have absolutely no clue about how it feels like to walk in the shoes of a parent with a sick child. As a result, some may want to help but have no idea how. The idea of writing this book is to share tips based on the lived experience of an actual parent carer. It also attempts to present the reader with a glimpse into the caring role. Although there is a constant reference to caring for a child, it is applicable to all the life stages of care- a young adult, grown up or elderly. The book is written with the carer in mind to reduce alienation and foster support.
This is a different kind of book that contains short reflections and story blogs. They have been expertly put together to create companionship for the reader. Different types of topics were explored and shared to awaken thoughts that the reader may not have considered in a long while. The book can be read as a whole or in little bits. As a deep thinker, the author shares these blogs and utilises the media of print to convey thoughts scribbled on pieces of paper, otherwise lying fallow and locked up in a drawer gathering dust. So, sit back, relax and enjoy this first edition of “Blog in a book”.

In this book, Meditations, Lauretta Ofulue shares her reflections on the word of God, alongside her unique view of the world. Lauretta's writing, as always, is simple yet authentic and with constant reference to the Bible, she draws the reader to a deeper understanding of the Word and how we can live this word out in our everyday lives. I was particularly moved by the chapters 'God on Holiday' and 'Beautiful Gate of Prayer', both of which simply remind us that God remains ever faithful, as long as we open our hearts to Him, try to live our lives following His Word and seek constant forgiveness for our human failures – Fr. Emmanuel Okami.
I failed my driving test- again. It was not part of the plan, but it has become a blessing in disguise. It forced me to notice a new world opening up to me during my bus journeys. I have become a proper convert now. I like to say that I am even helping the environment but that would be a lie because, that is just a by-product of the experience.What is true though is that my father would be proud of me because, I have kept a promise I made to him when I was little. “Yes daddy, I will never talk to strangers on the bus” I can see my small self-saying to him. This promise is being made possible because, I spend most of my time on the bus writing and being busy in my head. If you are curious about my “bus-scapades” then stay tuned.
