That Kind Of Love...





Good morning buriful pipu! I hope your day started out great already? Me, I'm still in bed tucked under the duvet, sipping on a hot cup of coffee, chewing seedless grapes and perusing the seemingly perfect lives of people on Instagram, very reluctant to get my day started. 

So y'all see these two pictures above, right? What's wrong with wanting this kind of love? What's wrong with wanting to feel this way on my wedding day? What's wrong with wanting to see my man shed a few tears when he sees me, his beacon of beauty, grace and hope, walking down that aisle with daddy by my side? What's wrong with wanting to be so overwhelmed with emotions and happiness that I break into tears of joy while my king stands besides me, mopping those tears away? What's wrong with wanting to look at my man and feel like "this is God's way of compensating me for all the pain, disappointment and heartache of the past?" What's wrong with wanting that kind of love?

If you're doing *yimu* to me right now then I command the cloud to change and your face would stay that way all through Christmas into the new year. LOL. (We had this joke as kids that if you distort your face or body even jokingly and the cloud changes, you would stay that way forever...)

Ok so I know that there are no perfect unions, Nubian Princess et Wale I heard what you had to say loud and clear, "happy ever afters" are few and far between, if at all they exist, and I know that that bride above may not even be crying tears of joy; for all we know she could be talking about how she lost a loved one and really wishes they were there...

Yet, there's still nothing wrong with wanting that kind of love. 

And maybe I should have titled this Re:On Finding Love and Then Losing It, as per yesterday's post... I'm not asking for perfection or mills&boons kinda situation, I just wanna feel something!

But I'll have you know that last night I talked about everything I'm feeling with him and the conversation that followed was quite pregnant with promise. So, although I'm not sure where we're headed, suffice it to say that I didn't quite end things completely. Like I said yesterday let God's will be done. 

And if you read this far then I compensate you with something that I hope would make you smile!

I hope you smiled. These two make me want love and want to love so bad! They represent to me an epitome of love&friendship. 


Good morning, once again. Have a blessed day ahead. 
And please say a line of prayer for me @ flying fears. I could travel by air every day and still feel jittery once we're in the sky. I pray for minimal turbulence and a safe landing. Amen.

  2. Nubian Princess is so on point T. Friendship. Friendship. More Friendship. When the butterflies aren't in your stomach, they can be someplace else; in your heart or in your head. Be friends first (friends love each other init?lol), the rest will be easy. I said this before in a post some months back: if you're not in a relationship with a friend, you're not in a relationship. It's that simple. The love you crave for will have a smooth journey towards your heart only when the path is graded with friendship. Stay blessed T.

    Serious PS: Let comments flow, pleeaasssssee. This approving comment stuff is dulling my spirit :(

  4. Uhmmnn... Thelma, Me too I want to be sooo sooo in love. Feel butterflies... feel light headed(should I?) feel all those sweet sweet mushy kini I read about... but then again. I want a strong, long lasting relationship and not a relationship that is built solely on my mushy, butterfly emotions. It is well Thelma. I pray that God's will for you(in marriage) shall be done. And you won't miss it. **hugs**

  8. Don't see myself as one of those people that would cry on their wedding day because I don't roll like that. We'll see sha

  9. Lol. My husband and i laughed all through the vows. Our Father's first language was Swahili, our wedding was the first ceremony he ever conducted in English. He was a last minute replacement. The vow ceremony video had to be heavily edited because we were laughing so hard.
    During our registry wedding we were laughing too, during our trad we were laughing. Maybe we just have our own sense of humor sha.

    We arent a crying couple, we are more likely to laugh at people and others. At our trad we got interviewed by one woman, and we gave random answers and both started laughing. The thing showed up on AIT. lol.

  14. Hian Thelma. I'm innocent o. There's absolutely nothing wrong with wanting that kind of love, and yes I do believe in happily ever afters. I just believe that kind of love grows and you have to give it time, not expecting a thunderbolt feeling right off the bat. Even after 16yrs my hubby still makes me feel all mushy inside. I just want to emphasize the role of friendship. You can't live together without it. Moving to diaspora for us at the beginning was a breeze. Hubby's company just transferred him over so we didn't have the rough start that a lot of people have. But tides turned when recession hit a few years ago. As I speak, we have had periods of plenty and periods of intense need. I have lived both sides of the spectrum. Its your friendship and ability to laugh with each other that keeps you going when you are looking at a stack of unpaid bills and wondering if the heat won't get turned off in the dead of winter. It's your friendship that keeps you strong together looking at your kids who are just hopeful and excited, having no idea what you guys are dealing with financially. That's what strong marriages are based on. Being able to weather whatever storm comes together, and there will be some. I laugh at people who get married to a rich man solely for mercenary reasons. What happens tomorrow if the money develops wings and flies away? No one knows what tomorrow brings. I have friends, we all started together but its amazing how our paths have diverged and our lives are so different 16years down the road. A friend is still childless. She never thought that would be her. How do you remain strong and hopeful in such a union, no kids, withstanding pressure from family, trying to keep believing with someone whom you are not friends with? Just a little bit of perspective. Life beyond the wedding day is what you make of it together. I've never been the crying type like Miss Pynk said. Your ability to laugh with and at each other is what will make some burdens feel lighter. I have been blessed. Hubby made it clear from day one that no one in his family should expect worship from me because I married their son and we are from different cultures. But being his friend, and seeing how he has stuck his neck out for me, I definitely will not disrespect his family either. He made it so easy to love them as my own. You must be in love with each other and be friends with each other. That combo? Priceless!!

  15. Hmmm...I just want to be with my friend....i want acceptance, tolerance,indulgence,laughter.....that's all

  16. PS and looking at Dakore and Olu, I see friends. I'm sure some of us heard how long tey were together before they got married and some ofth challenges they faced before the wedding became a reality. Again, surmountable with a solid friendship. Marry ya friend o ;)

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.

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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....!

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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…

Shhhhhhh....

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!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
