One Wish...

Good morning guys!
I want to say a great big THANK YOU to God for the gift of a new week. I'm so excited and I feel so blessed. 

I hope you had a good weekend, mine was ok. Yesterday someone very close to me who's opening this new Pizza place interviewed or rather tested some guy who says he's in that line of business. So the guy came to the house to make pizza, shawarma, small chops etc. The guy made all these and after he left it was just my friend and I left to do the testing/tasting. My friend made some lemonade and cocktails and we had a party for two. Kai! My taste buds danced yesterday but of course I was tempted to hate myself afterwards, but I simply refused! LOL. 

What do you have planned for the week, and guys what's one thing you wish would happen this week?

Me? I wish a job I interviewed for a few months back would finally call short listed candidates and I would be short listed. That's my greatest wish for the week. 

Can I have a few others?
I wish someone would surprise me with a cheque and say "Nwando go spoil yourself, you deserve it". It's been long since anyone gave me anything....
I wish I could get a paying job as a writer.
I wish God can bless me so I can be a blessing to others. 
I wish I would get more Match Make Moments mails from men. 
I wish at the end of the week my readers would have more testimonies than rants. 
I wish that greater opportunities would locate me.
I wish that the bombings would 'magically' stop and all the girls be brought back and united with their families. 

I know wishes are not horses but hey, I believe in miracles. So for your wishes and mine I say a big Amen.

What do you wish would happen for you this week?


  1. I wish i wasn't born into a poor family,where d poor Manufacture kids without hope of takin care of dem,i wish someone will just come and kick me out of this damn suffering,i wish d guys i always fall for ain't stingy,i wish my uncles weren't heartless,i wish one of my parents was rich,i wish i never had to stay with other people and receive insults yet i endure,i wish manner will just fall from heaven,i wish u can meet a wealthy family and beg for help and they grant it,i wish i wish i wish.lord grant me my heart desire.i dont want to be poor.@times i wish i can help my mum with money .pay the school fees of my younger ones.poverty is a disease.

    1. E-seriousHugssss. From your mouth to God's ears!

  2. I just wish he can say he loves me again. We all makes mistakes, he said he has forgiven me but why can't he tell me he loves me again? It's been almost one year.
    Tee amen to your prayer, let our testimonies be more than our rants. Amen.

  3. I wish I get called for a job I didn't apply for.
    I wish I get called by numerous employers and get so confused and not know which company to work with/for.
    I wish things were so different in my family.
    I wish my sister's ex would just leave me the heck alone(he's asking me out) even after deleting him off bbm,warning him,not taking his calls and all.
    I wish I had all the money in the world so,I don't get to ask anyone for anything(hate asking),so I can help the needy and most importantly,so I can change so many things in my family.

    Best thing that can ever happen to me now/this week/month is having my first and second wish come true.

  4. I wish the job interview i went for would come through for me and like T, i also wish for a cheque .
    I also wish that all the mature young ladies on this blog be settled maritally and financial in Jesus name. Amen
    I wish for everyone including myself, a testimony that will sound like a fairy tale, this week and beyond. Amen. Pam

  5. May all your wishes come true Thelma

    I pray my contract is renewed otherwise as of this week Wednesday I will be jobless.
    I wish there will be peace on the continent.
    I wish I could receive a new gift too.
    I wish I could get a new phone.
    I wish that by the end of this week I have a testimony

  6. I wish for a very sound health this week; not feeling my health lately
    I wish I would be paid a salary commensurate with my designation
    I wish for a clearer vision and path unto self employment
    I wish that this year, God will enable me complete a project I started some years back (dragging for too long already)
    I wish for peace in the world; too many bad news

    BUT the top on the list is for God to let me love dis NBC job BORING

    1. Oh my Mariam, you made me giggle @ TOAWM. Awwww. *big squishy hug*

  11. I wish I never developed stuttering from my dad.. I used to control when I'm nervous.. but these days, job interviews makes me so stressed and my damn nerves start acting and I have numerous blocks. I know God has a plan..I used to be this bright girl growing up..I enter a room and it's either I'm singing or I wont shut up..but ever since my early teenage stuttering took over, became shy..scared to speak in public..this damn stuttering wants to over come my life!! It's confusing because I do talk a lot.. but when I get nervous...sighh..sorry for ranting... but I do wish I gain my confidence on how I view myself which will calm my nerves..

  12. my dear anon. I understand how u feel, cos my darling husband is a stammerer too. He feels so insecure dat i'll leave him for "normal" people, but i keep reassuring him by using every oppurtunity to tell him how much i adore him. Stuttering is only a speech impairment, it dosent in anyway make u inworthy or not to achieve wat u want to achieve. I even go ahead to tell him i married him cos of his stuttering just to boost his confidence. D only way u can help urself is try not to talk when u are angry, avoid arguments when they are heated and make ur points later, i knw God will help u....

    1. Thank you very much.. yea I do avoid moments when I'm angry..because I get too talking about stuttering not preventing one from achieving what they want, it's preventing me from getting a job. I get nervous and my throat just gets blocked...I'm looking into getting help with a speech therapist..i've noticed something though, when the interviewer and I just talk about basic things.. i can talk and do not stutter but when the job questions start.. its like I have no tongue and never learnt how to talk.. I can't do this I've decided to seek professional help.. thank you for you kind words anyway.

  13. I wish Candie Mucnchie to get the car we went hunting for last weekend this week else.....His birthday gift and also for 200k to hit my acc...Lord I need that dough!!!

  14. *Candie Munchie*

  15. I wish I never had to wish. Just have all the good things of life at my beck and call.

  16. Oh the things I wish for...... (sigh)
    I wish a great job or business idea comes my way. I wish hubby's boss appreciate one little thing he and his colleagues do. I wish they're all paid their 4months arrears. I wish he gets another job that will give him joy and peace within. I wish he's back in Lagos with a better paying job. I wish I had a better relationship with God. I wish my prayer life is in a better state than it is now. I wish more and better cladding jobs come our way. I wish Nigeria was safe once more. I wish my car gets fixed soonest. I wish I start my sewing lessons soon. I wish my mum's back is healed totally. I wish my sister was still alive, I miss her soooo much and that's an understatement. I wish my account is in a better state. I wish my eyesight becomes better. I wish my worries will turn to testimonies and I pray the same for all IJN.

  17. I wish to be happy. I want happiness that has no source. I want to feel happy and not even know why I am happy. I want divine inspiration on something that has been bothering me for a while concerning my career. I also need a female friend: I don't seem to have any. A God sent female friend. I wish there was no traffic in Lagos. Kai! My life will be easier.

  33. i am Stella and i want to thank Dr.ukpoyan for bringing back my ex boyfriend, we broke up for more than 10 month and he told me that he will never want to see me in his life again. i love him so much to the extend that i could not think of dating any man again, i was confused and depress due to the love i had for him.i did everything i could do to have him come back to me but all went in vain. so i decided to contact a spell caster, i did not believe in spell casting i just want to try it may be it would work out for me. i contacted Dr ukpoyan olu for help,and he told me that he have to cast a love spell on him, i told him to do it. after 45 hours my boyfriend called me and started to apologize for leaving me and also he told me that he still love me. i was very happy and i thank Dr ukpoyan for helping get back my ex back to my hands. his spell is the greatest of all over the world, it was the love spell he cast on my ex that make him come back to me. all you ladies who want back their ex back i want you to contact Dr.ukpoyan for the return of your ex boyfriend and also your ex girlfriend he can also cast any kind of spell you want him to cast for you. his contact email is

  35. I wish my Mama would always be blessed and would always know what a blessing it is to have her as a friend and a mom.
    I wish my siblings successes would always surpass mine; which would make them unbelievable cos i am blessed.
    I wish i could have my dad for 144hours to be used at anytime in my life; I wld wish him back for 24hours for mine and my siblings' weddings and for his 40th anniversary with my mama.
    I wish that knowledge was downloadable like on the Matrix; my boundaries would be limitless.
    I wish for friends that are as precious as family and family that are priceless; already have parts of one,
    I wish i would rise to pinnacles that would be an inspiration; working on that so it may probably come true
    And I wish, o how i wish, to find an apartment in this crazy town where i don't have to flatshare or deal with crazy neighbors; guess i have to move soon *wink*
    And is too mush to wish for a man who i know may not be perfect but who will love me perfectly? I will anyways

  36. Dear thelma...
    Am so happy I could do a moonwalk! which would b a miracle as I happen to be really clumsy at dancing of any kind. Anyways, days back we all made wishes, I for one included money in my wish though I really didn't see how it would happen. I was down to my min balance of 1k in my back acct, debtors were no show and frankly, toasters that totally didn't appeal were starting to come up in rating.
    Then last night, I got d news!!! I'd become a millionaire! Just a million really, but gosh it feels like life itself from the edge i'd been standing! I can breathe a lil easier, I can invest in d clothing line am interested in, bt had no financial back up for, I can dream bigger too, and all thanks to some unexpected family venture that paid off!
    I wanted to send ds to ur mailbox but it felt right to post it here. Prayers do get answered whatever our shortcomings... miracles still happen and yes! wishes no matter how unrealistic, can come true! My testimony... and I hope it's just d first, of the rest to be told by every wonderful person here, that dared to wish!

  37. Wow!dats so great.yh miracles do happen!hoping 4 mine too :D

  38. I wish boko haram is a nightmare.I wish to wake up to hear they are no more.
    I wish my in law to get up from his wheelchair and walk.I wish peace and happiness will find it's way back to my family again.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
