My Journey to An Amazing Connection

Have you read my last blog? I hope you did.

Kobe Bryant just confirmed what I said last week. Have you seen how he has been playing lately? (poor Raptors). His team has its back against the wall and he is performing at a high level. It's do or die basically for the Lakers. Wow! Really impressing.

Enough with Basketball. If you don't stop me, I can go on and on with this sport. It is really a school of life. You see, I can't stop!.

Last week, we were celebrating the International Women's day. If you ask my opinion, we should celebrate the woman everyday. Here is why:

This coming March 16, our daughter will be nine months old. Time really flies. It has been one of the best nine months of my life.It is really a joy. I spend so much time with her that, every time that I go out, I can't wait to be home (don't get me wrong, I feel the same way about my wife as well lol).

Skylar is an early morning person like myself. As soon as she wakes up, I go in the room to get her so that my wife can get some extra sleep. I play with her, I feed her, I change her, and I make sure to turn on her favourite TV channel (yes, like her mom, she is a huge TV fan). I can see that she is really having fun until....her mom wakes up.

I don't know how these things work. As soon as she sees her mom, I quickly become a second thought for her (I don't think she even remembers that I am her dad). Her face shines with a wide smile, she is so excited that she cannot hold her emotions. She jumps up and down and she cannot wait to be in her mom's arm. And I am like: what about me girl? I have been playing with you for the last hour or so, now I mean nothing to you? My wife cannot even go in the other room. Skylar cries right away while I am holding her in my arms. Can you believe that?!

There is such an amazing connection between these two ladies that no matter what I do, I don't think I will reach this level with Skylar. Maybe time will tell. It is really a good thing to see.

That is why women should be respected, celebrated, loved and venerated daily. God gave them the power to create another human being (with our little help) and establish a connection with him or her that is really deep. And this goes both ways. The way my wife loves Skylar is out of this world. I am now number two in her life. Skylar comes first. It is a place that I have learned to embrace lol (like my old days on the bench in Basketball lol).

This reminds me that I have to call my mom lol

Way to go girls. You rock. As one of my favourite songs says, this is a man's world, but it wouldn't be nothing without a woman or a girl (I agree with you James Brown).

Moral of the story?
Do you want to have an amazing connection with the ladies in your life. Just wake up early to be with them and you will be forgotten as soon as they see their moms.

Always a pleasure

The Journeyman.

My Journey to a Press Conference

What a game 7 for the Raptors!! Kahwi shot was out of this world. I am still in shock. But, let me talk about a game that happened a while back. Game 5. As game 5 against the Philadelphia 76ers and our beloved Raptors ended with a huge victory from the local team, we headed down to the press conference location. The media people were lining up in front of the elevator and the length of the line was one of those I had never seen. We had to wait for the elevator to go down and back up at least three times before we could get in. By the time we finally got in the elevator, the TV monitor inside the elevator was showing Serge Ibaka’ s press conference. Shoot, we were running late. We finally got down, and as we were rushing to the conference room, I bumped into Toronto FC soccer superstar Jozy Altidore. He said hi to me and I said hi back. It was surreal. Then, in front of me, I saw this huge guy with tattoos all over his body. I didn’t know who he was, but he caught my

My Journey with Fidèle

It has been quite a few busy weeks that involved a round trip to Ottawa on Saturday and preaching during a Sunday church service (yes, I was surprised too when I was asked to do it). All this time I was thinking about what I would be writing about on this week’s blog. I had a vague idea, but I did not know how to formulate it. That was until I received a message on Facebook from a friend asking me to speak at an upcoming event in January. The topic of my presentation would be “The Moment that Defined Your Life”. The person who sent me the invitation did not know that I had been thinking about the same topic days prior to her message. It all started when I was at a Toronto Raptors game. I have been reporting on the games for almost two months now, but I am still in awe every time I am at the arena. I can’t believe this is happening to me. I have been in rooms with childhood idols, biggest stars of the game, coaches, reporters, you name it. And every time I am saying “wow”. Th

My Journey to the Plan

Our baby is now six months old. Time really flies. It has been a real joy to spend time with her and see her grow daily. I have received a number of positive comments about my last blog. I am glad you liked it. Let go and let God is a principle that I am learning to embrace. I have read about it a number of times, and I thought I was doing it, but I don't think I had totally released control until recently. How did it happen? So many things happened at the same time that led me realize that I had to let it go. One of them is the experience of my good friend Emmanuel Lopez a.k.a Motivatorman. About a year ago, I met Emmanuel just to catch up after my summer in Africa. Emmanuel and I have been friends since 2005, and ever since we made a tradition to meet regularly to talk As we were talking, he shared with me that he was going through one of the toughest moments of his life. From our previous conversations, I knew things were not easy for him, but he al
