There is Nobody to Beat the Floor for Me.

  1. This was really interesting! I’ve never heard of beating the floor before. Here, when a child falls, the parent will offer to kiss it better. In a way I think this is what God does too. He wants us to get back up, and to grow up, but he also comforts us and corrects us gently. (Unless we don’t listen, or get proud, then He can become more stern.) But He shows us that we matter, and hates to see that we’ve hurt ourselves.

    Thanks for sharing! ❤

    1. I have seen the floor scenario so many times and it never ceases to amuse me. I am almost sure my mum did the same for me too😂. And I agree with your perspective. Thanks for reading ❤️

  2. I took my time to read this captivating story. It reminds me of those vilifying days then I smiled. The brilliance of the piece is undiluted. You deserve an accolade.

    To Tina, the beating the floor strategy is common among the Yorubas. The practice still exists up till today particularly in the rural areas
